5 Advantages of Invisalign over Traditional Braces

Posted By: Dr. Wade Kifer

If you are a patient who wants a straighter smile, you might consider opting for Invisalign clear braces in our Fayetteville dental office. When adults choose to undergo orthodontic treatment, one of the biggest obstacles holding them back is the idea of wearing brackets and wires for years on end to achieve a straight, healthy smile, which is why Dr. Wade Kifer proudly offers Invisalign clear braces at Northwest Arkansas Family Dental.

According to our patients, here are the top five benefits of Invisalign.

#1 Invisalign Braces Are Completely Clear

Unlike metal or ceramic braces, Invisalign uses a thin, plastic aligner to gradually shift teeth into alignment, achieving a beautiful smile and improved oral health. Even people seated directly across from you will have a hard time noticing you are wearing braces.

#2 Invisalign Aligners Are Smooth

Unlike orthodontic brackets, Invisalign aligners are smooth and eliminate the painful irritation of having sharp metal or ceramic irritating the insides of your cheeks and lips when you eat or talk.

#3 Invisalign Braces Are Removable

Because you can remove your clear braces, you have greater freedom when it comes to important events. It is essential, however, that you wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours per day to keep your treatment on schedule.

#4 Invisalign Allows You to Eat an Unrestricted Diet

You don’t have to avoid crunchy fruits and vegetables or a barbecued steak with Invisalign because you will remove them to eat anyway. Just be sure to brush your teeth (or at least give them a good rinse) after eating to avoid trapping food next to your teeth that can cause decay.

#5 Invisalign Makes it Easy to Clean Your Teeth

Say goodbye to inconvenient floss threaders and tools to help you work around brackets. Since you remove your aligners to brush and floss, you can do so normally.
