There are a few obvious differences between Invisalign aligners and other orthodontic appliances. One of the most attractive differences to people is in the way Invisalign aligners are designed to be hard to notice, which allows you to minimize any effect on your appearance as your alignment issues are addressed. They also provide a difference in convenience, because they can be removed by you at times when they might be in your way. Of course, they have one important aspect in common – for many people, both options can lead to real orthodontic improvements. Your Dallas, TX dentist’s office can help you understand Invisalign, and what you can expect from your adjustment.

What Can You Gain From Using Invisalign Over Traditional Braces?

For people in professional settings, and for people who want to look and feel more confident in social activities, Invisalign can offer the benefit of being hard to notice. You can smile, speak, and laugh without wondering if people are paying more attention to your orthodontic appliance than they are to you. You can also enjoy the convenience of having a removable orthodontic appliance. Because you can simply take out your Invisalign aligners when they might be intrusive, you can have an easier time with cleaning your teeth, and you can be more comfortable eating.

Starting Your Orthodontic Treatment

When you first meet with your dentist, you can have your candidacy for Invisalign treatment confirmed. From this point, you can have your aligners planned, then receive a sequence of appliances that will gradually move your teeth to their proper places. While the start of your adjustment may feel awkward at first, the use of hard-to-see, easy-to-remove appliances can make your overall experience more comfortable, and more pleasant.

Fixing Alignment Flaws Can Help With More Than Just Your Appearance

Because of the great changes made to the way you look, you can feel like your orthodontic adjustment is all about making cosmetic improvements to your smile. These smile improvements are certainly exciting, and something you can be understandably happy about, there are other benefits to your adjustment. You can have an easier time cleaning your teeth when they do not overlap. Spacing out teeth that are crowded can make it easier to reach all areas of your enamel, and avoid issues with spaces where plaque and tartar are harder to access. You can also find that your adjustment reduces pressure on your jaw joints, because you can use a more natural bite motion. By reducing stress on your jaw joints, you are less likely to develop a problem like bruxism.
