The Top 6 Reasons To Consider Invisalign

bab1e4d4fe09c925ce9cc80935173523Welcome to Affiliated Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, where we are happy to be Premier Invisalign providers in the Scottsdale area. Invisalign is a state-of-the-art method for straightening teeth that is virtually invisible. The Invisalign system uses a set of clear, plastic aligners that are customized to fit an individual’s teeth. After wearing these aligners for 20-22 hours a day, your teeth will gradually shift into place to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign is a comfortable and convenient option for straightening teeth, with additional perks listed below:

Benefits of Invisalign:

  1. Eat whatever you want. Due to the fact that Invisalign aligners are removable, feel free to eat whatever you want. Traditional braces restrict you from eating things like nuts, corn on the cob, popcorn and other sticky and hard foods. With Invisalign, just make sure to remove your aligners and you’ll still be able to indulge in all your favorite foods. There are absolutely no diet modifications that need to be made.
  2. Better oral health. Brush, floss and care for your teeth the way you normally would. With Invisalign, there are no brackets or wires to get in the way of flossing and brushing, making your teeth easy to clean and care for. This will result in optimal oral health in addition to your straightened teeth!
  3. No pain. Though you will get a new set of aligners every two weeks, you won’t be getting brackets tightened or adjusted which means less discomfort and pain.
  4. Removable. As mentioned before, Invisalign aligners are easy to remove. If you need to eat, brush your teeth or just want a break from wearing them, simply remove them! It’s that easy. However, do make sure to wear your aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours a day!
  5. Less time at the orthodontic office. You’ll save time when you choose Invisalign vs. braces, since you have no wires or brackets that require tightening or adjusting. With Invisalign, your chair time at the orthodontist is minimal and your appointments will likely be every 2 months.
  6. They’re invisible! Lastly, one of the best features Invisalign has to offer is that it straightens teeth while being practically invisible! This is one of the major reasons adults choose Invisalign over braces. Continue living your life without worrying about braces getting in the way. Choose Invisalign today!
