Why Clear Aligners
West Chester, OH
Everyone loves a bright smile with aligned and even teeth. But what if your teeth aren’t straight? Crooked, misaligned teeth can affect your oral hygiene, your smile, and your confidence. But there are ways to improve your smile.
If your teeth aren’t straight and you are looking to align your teeth and make your smile more attractive, clear aligners may be the solution. Clear aligners, like Invisalign are an alternative to traditional metal braces and are used as a corrective orthodontic tool to straighten moderately crooked or crowded teeth.
Clear aligners make a likely option for straightening misaligned teeth for a variety of reasons.
Clear Aligners are Invisible
Perhaps, the most obvious reason that clear aligners make a viable choice for straightening crooked teeth is that they are invisible. Unlike traditional metal braces that involve wearing a mouthful of metal brackets and wires, clear aligners are transparent and do not affect your appearance or self-esteem while you are undergoing the treatment.
Clear Aligners are Removable
Another reason why people prefer clear aligners over traditional braces is that you can simply remove the aligner and enjoy your meals. All you have to do is to pop out your aligners and store them in a carrying case at mealtimes and enjoy your favorite meals.
Moreover, when you choose clear aligners, you also don’t have to go through the hassle of remembering the long list of foods that you have to avoid when you get metal braces.
Clear Aligners are More Comfortable
Unlike traditional braces that can irritate your cheeks and gums, clear aligners are soft and more comfortable and do not irritate your gums or cheek. Your oral cavity is at ease with clear aligners, and you feel more comfortable and confident.
It’s Easier to Maintain Oral Hygiene and Clean Clear Aligners
Another reason why clear aligners make a great alternative to traditional braces for moderately crooked and crowded teeth is that they are easy to clean. Since clear aligners are removable, they allow you to take care of your natural teeth more thoroughly than when you are wearing metal braces. All you have to take care of your teeth is brush and floss regularly in the same way as you would do without braces.
Moreover, clear aligners are also easy to clean. All you have to do is to rinse your aligners with tap water and gently brush the aligners using a soft-bristled brush and clear liquid soap and rinse thoroughly. As a result, you can remove the food particles or debris accumulated over your aligners throughout the day.
Furthermore, when your clear aligners are not in use, it’s best to store them in a protective case.
