What are the benefits of Invisalign orthodontics over traditional braces in Ottawa?

Patients of all ages can benefit from a beautifully aligned smile. However, many hesitate to undergo orthodontic treatment because of the embarrassment they feel when it comes to wearing traditional metal bracket and wire braces. Patients might avoid improving their smiles because they are self-conscious about the appearance of orthodontics. However, teenagers and adults can now straighten their smile with Invisalign orthodontics, which uses clear aligner trays instead of metal to move teeth into their proper places gently.

Invisalign treatment involves the use of plastic resin trays that are BPA-free and made of biocompatible, transparent materials. A patient who is undergoing Invisalign treatment will have a series of aligner trays made for his or her smile. These are custom made, and the number of trays in the series will vary depending on the severity of the misalignment. Some patients may need as few as six, while others may have twenty or more. These trays are worn day and night, and only removed when a patient is brushing their teeth, flossing, or eating. Compliance is the key for patients to see optimum results with Invisalign orthodontics.

There are many benefits to Invisalign. Ottawa patients who visit Dr. France Chevalier will be able to ask about the advantages that Invisalign have over traditional orthodontics. First, patients can enjoy Invisalign treatment from their dental office. They do not have to visit a specialist or orthodontist to straighten their teeth and bite. Second, patients do not have any dietary restrictions while using Invisalign aligners. This is because they are removed when a patient is eating meals, so they can enjoy popcorn and all the other foods and treats that traditional orthodontic patients are banned from eating. Third, patients enjoy Invisalign because it offers a more discreet way to improve their smiles. This is highly beneficial for adults who are in close contact with others in their careers and want to look their best, even when straightening their teeth. This is typically the number one selling factor for Invisalign orthodontics over traditional braces. Fourth, Invisalign is affordable. In most cases, they are similar to the cost of traditional orthodontics, but have a “clear” advantage over metal brackets and wires.
