When Getting Invisalign Invisible Aligners, Consider These Pros and Cons

Posted .

If one of your new year’s goals is to have a straight smile, we can help you with that. Invisalign® clear orthodontic aligners are the perfect solution to align your smile with low-profile braces. Keep these points in mind as you consider using Invisalign braces to fix your smile:

• Removable- easier to maintain oral hygiene, can eat what you want, take out for sports and playing instruments
• Virtually Invisible- more aesthetic than metal braces and clear braces
• Comfortable- no wires or brackets against the inside of your mouth
• 3-D simulation- video gives patient an idea of the treatment goal prior to starting treatment and may be a motivating factor
• Fewer Emergencies- no poking wires or broken brackets
• FDA approved material- safe and no concern over metal allergies
• Treatment of choice- for certain malocclusions, it may produce a better result in a shorter amount of time
• Trouble fixing large gaps, severely rotated teeth, and large over- or underbites
• Often more expensive than traditional braces
• Require removal for eating anything except water
• You may develop a temporary lisp while getting used to them
