Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign retainers use a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth, making general dental care a much simpler task. Traditional braces present a variety pains and annoyances that simply disappear with these clear aligners. The benefits of Invisalign versus traditional braces include:
- Appearance – Unlike traditional braces, the aligners are made of clear plastic, which makes them hardly noticeable so you can stay confident while you achieve a perfect smile.
- Comfort – Traditional braces often irritate your inner cheeks and lips and wax is often necessary to avoid the discomfort. The clear plastic of Invisalign is smooth and won’t rub against your mouth.
- Maintenance – Brushing and flossing can become difficult tasks with traditional braces, as some areas are hard to reach. By removing your aligners, you can brush and floss as you normally would without braces.
In addition to their subtle appearance, comfort, and easy maintenance, the clear aligners don’t prevent you from eating your favorite foods that traditional braces may not allow you to. You can simply remove your aligners and enjoy the foods you love.
Avoid Lasting Effects
Relative to the ease of maintenance Invisalign offers, the clear braces also help patients avoid some lasting effects that may occur with traditional braces.

As mentioned, patients are able to remove the aligners each time they brush to get a complete clean.
