Why should I get Invisalign instead of braces?

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, you may have thought about braces.

Traditional metal and wire braces typically work well to straighten teeth. However, some patients do not want metal and wires. They do not want the bulkiness of braces weighing down their smile.

Invisalign in Melbourne is an effective way to bring your teeth in line without brackets and wires. It’s a way to change the appearance of your smile discreetly without drawing attention.

Invisalign relies on a series of clear plastic aligners worn for approximately 22 hours each day. You switch out your aligner approximately every two weeks to straighten your teeth across the course of treatment.

The benefits of Invisalign compared with traditional braces:

  • You can remove Invisalign when brushing, flossing and eating.
  • You can straighten your teeth without metal and wires.
  • You can brush and floss more productively because the aligners are removable.
  • The aligners may feel more comfortable than traditional brackets because they are made from smooth plastic.

Your dentist in Melbourne can help you decide which option is better for your smile goals and oral health.

If you would like to arrange an Invisalign conversation or if you have questions, we encourage your call.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
