Clear aligners have become more popular as they’ve grown in familiarity. More and more people, including celebrities, are choosing to get their teeth straightened!
If you’re interested in having straighter teeth, it’s important to know the benefits of clear aligners before deciding whether this is the right choice for you. You might be surprised by how many awesome things you can do with your new smile!
They Don’t Draw Unnecessary Attention
If you or someone you’ve encountered wears braces, then you know people can’t help but stare. With clear aligners, that’s not the case. Since they’re virtually invisible, people will have no idea that you’re wearing them – unless you tell them. So, if you’re looking for a way to straighten your teeth without drawing attention to yourself, clear aligners are the way to go.
Easy To Maintain, Making Brushing and Flossing Easy
When you have clear aligners, you will find it very easy to clean your teeth. You will not have to worry about braces getting in the way when you are trying to brush your teeth. This can help you avoid cavities and gum disease. Additionally, clear aligners are easy to remove, so you can brush and floss your teeth more effectively.
No Food Restrictions
Traditional braces and orthodontic appliances use wires and brackets to gently move your teeth into place. However, these are attached with metal clasps that can’t handle certain types of food, leading many people to avoid these foods altogether.
This can cause stress and make it harder to stick with your orthodontic treatment plan. With clear aligners, you don’t have to worry about these restrictions. You can eat whatever you want! You may eat more fresh fruits and vegetables since they won’t affect your aligners.
Less Dental Appointments and Visits
You might be surprised to learn that one of the benefits of clear aligners is that you’ll need to visit the dentist less often. You typically need to go in for adjustments every few weeks with traditional braces. But with them, you can usually wait longer between appointments. This means fewer trips to the dentist and less time spent in the waiting room!
They Are Comfortable
Most people are surprised to learn that clear aligners are quite comfortable to wear. They are made of a smooth, flexible material that doesn’t irritate your gums like metal braces. And, since they are custom-made to fit your mouth, they shouldn’t cause any discomfort.
