Newtown Town Orthodontics offers several types of braces for you to choose from. Sometimes this choice is an economic one and sometimes it is based more on lifestyle. A choice that is growing in popularity is Invisalign®. Here are of some of the advantages of Invisalign® over metal braces.  

Appearance

  • Invisalign® aligners are clear so it will be hard to tell if you even have them on.

Cheek health

  • Metal braces can cause painful sores on the insides of your mouth.
  • With Invisalign® the inside of your cheek and tongue will be pain-free.

Hygiene

  • With braces, getting your teeth clean, truly clean, can be a big challenge, but not so with Invisalign®.
  • With metal braces you may need floss threaders, different sized toothbrushes and a Waterpik, but not so with Invisalign®.
  • With Invisalign® you simply remove your aligners and floss and brush your teeth.
  • You can have your teeth cleaned by a dentist with ease.
  • Maintaining clean teeth over the course of your straightening lessens the chances of you having cavities and that’s always a good thing.

Activities

  • Because Invisalign can be removed, activities such as playing mouth based musical instruments or playing sports that involve a risk to your mouth don’t have to be avoided.
  • Photos can be taken without metal braces appearing. This can be important to people who are, say, getting married or having professional portraits done.

Eating

  • Metal braces make you limit what you can eat but Invisalign does not.
  • You simply remove Invisalign aligners to eat, brush and replace them.
