A picture-perfect smile used to mean years of awkward metal wires and brackets. Invisalign is a safer, more comfortable way to get that beautiful, confident smile. If you live in Las Vegas, you’re in the right place to receive Invisalign treatment from one of the most experienced providers in the nation. But why is Invisalign so much better than braces?
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign has a number of benefits compared to other forms of orthodontic treatment.
Metal braces are conspicuous, but Invisalign lives up to its name. It’s made of a clear material that is designed to effectively control tooth movement while remaining virtually invisible.
If you got braces, the list of foods you would have to avoid is ridiculously long: popcorn, nuts, candy, pizza crust, bagels, crunchy fruits and vegetables, crackers, pretzels, and chips, to name a few. Invisalign can be removed for meals, so there are no forbidden foods while receiving treatment.
Cavities and gum disease are common complications of braces, as food can get stuck around the brackets. Invisalign can be removed for toothbrushing and flossing, making it a more hygienic treatment option.
Braces can rub on the inside of your cheeks and lips, creating uncomfortable sores and inviting infection. Invisalign has no hard metal surfaces and is custom-trimmed for a comfortable, personalized fit.
No emergency visits
With braces, every time a wire or bracket breaks, you have to make an emergency trip to the orthodontist to have it repaired. Invisalign has no such problems, saving you time and energy.
Choosing an Invisalign Provider
While some dentists can treat with Invisalign, orthodontists have 2 to 3 years of specialized training in tooth alignment and are a better choice for orthodontic care. When looking for an orthodontist to provide treatment with Invisalign, look for experience.
Invisalign designates four tiers of providers:
- Preferred: treats 10 cases per year
- Premier: treats 50 cases per year
- Elite: has treated 300 cases total and treats 100 cases per year
- Top 1%: has treated 800 cases total and treats 200 cases per year
