3 Reasons to Choose Invisalign

3 Reasons to Choose Invisalign

Are you bothered by crooked, crowded, or oddly spaced teeth? Did you know you can improve these issues without the hassle of braces?

Gone are the days when straighter teeth required having a “mouth full of metal.” Invisalign® orthodontic treatment boasts a range of benefits to optimal candidates, from straighter teeth to improved oral health — without dealing with brackets and wires. 

Our expert team at Swinney Dental in Tyler, Texas, is pleased to provide Invisalign treatment to address common alignment and smile issues.

If you’re considering Invisalign, read on to learn about three popular reasons to embrace it.

1. Invisalign straightens teeth with ease

Invisalign gradually shifts your teeth into improved alignment, addressing common issues like overbites, gaps, crookedness, and overcrowding. 

Once your custom trays are created, you wear them for 22-23 hours per day, removing them only to brush and floss your teeth or to eat or drink anything other than water.

Ideal for teens and adults, you could opt for Invisalign for your initial orthodontic treatment or for “touch-ups” in the future. Kids ages 6 and older may benefit from Invisalign First, which improves alignment during their growth and development.

2. Invisalign devices are barely noticeable

Because Invisalign trays are clear and thin, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. That means you can smile, speak, and confidently get your picture taken. Your devices are created, fitted, and trimmed to ensure you’re happy with how they look and feel. 

3. Invisalign takes less time than braces

While conventional braces often take 1-3 years to fully straighten your teeth, Invisalign treatment typically provides results in 10-24 months

On average, teens can get the improved smile they desire five months faster compared to braces. Adults typically see noticeable benefits within six months of starting Invisalign treatment.

Improving your overall health with Invisalign

Better-aligned teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of decay, cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss. As your oral health improves, so may your overall health. Healthier teeth and gums are linked with less inflammation throughout your body and a lower likelihood of heart disease. 

Straighter teeth via Invisalign may boost your emotional well-being, too. Research shows that while smile dissatisfaction detracts from teens’ mental health, straighter teeth can promote a more positive body image. The same holds true for many young adults, with links between oral health, tooth alignment, and self-confidence, particularly for women.
