Fall is at our doorstep, and winter is just an icy wind away. As our days of enjoying the sun come to a close for the year, the door to a healthier you remains wide open. If you suffer from any type of tooth abnormality, it could be affecting everything from your oral health to your eating habits, and even your sleep patterns. Clear braces like Invisalign® are a great option to ensure better teeth alignment, and a better you. There are many benefits to getting orthodontic aligners, and even more so to switch to clear ones:

Benefits of Invisalign orthodontic clear braces:
– They are 100% customizable
– Smooth, comfortable, patented thermoplastic aligners
– Better smile with less social stigma of “metal-mouth”
– Straight teeth easier to clean than crooked teeth
– Easier cleaning; aligners are easily removable for eating or cleaning
– No food restrictions
– Invisalign braces are virtually invisible
– Simplifies oral hygiene and bite problems
– Healthier teeth and gums

Compared to traditional braces:
– Wire can poke and irritate mouth
– Less expensive
– Lots of food restrictions
– Can break while being worn, potentially causing serious damage to your gums
– Harder to brush and floss effectively
– Require brackets and wires
– Stigma of metal-mouth look, which can lower self-esteem and cause anxiety, teens and adults alike
