If you think your dream smile is unattainable without years of bulky metal braces, think again: Thomas D. Sokoly, DDS, at Sokoly Dental in Washington, D.C., offers Invisalign® clear aligners for quick, easy teeth straightening.
This holiday season, give yourself the gift of straight teeth and a beautiful smile with Invisalign. If you need any convincing, consider these seven reasons why Invisalign remains so popular.
1. Invisalign works faster than braces
If you want to quickly straighten your teeth, definitely go with Invisalign. Invisalign aligners work up to 50% faster than regular braces — that means you could have straight teeth in half the amount of time it would take to straighten your teeth with braces.
2. You don’t have to deal with rubber bands, wires, or brackets
The bane of every person who wears braces, brackets and rubber bands create so much chaos in the mouth. Not only are they bulky and uncomfortable, but they often present the need for emergency visits when things go wrong. You don’t have to deal with any of that when you choose Invisalign clear aligners.
3. You can eat whatever you want
With Invisalign, you won’t have to deal with any food restrictions — you can munch on apples, corn-on-the-cob, hard candies, caramels, and anything else you desire. Just make sure to take your clear aligners out before you eat and brush your teeth before placing them back on your teeth!
4. Invisalign aligners are aesthetically pleasing
This is quite an obvious fact, but clear aligners — like Invisalign — don’t alter your appearance as much as traditional metal braces. The clear retainer-like aligners and tooth-colored attachments keep your smile bright and beautiful throughout the entire straightening process.
5. Invisalign reduces your risk of cavities and gum disease
With Invisalign, cleaning your teeth is super easy. Because the aligners slide right off, you can brush and floss your teeth as you normally would, ensuring that food debris doesn’t get stuck in the tight crevices between your teeth. Being able to properly take care of your teeth reduces your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health complications.
6. There’s a reduced risk of mouth and gum damage
If you play sports or engage in active recreational activities, Invisalign is a top choice for straightening teeth. The smooth, flat aligners reduce your risk of damage to your gums, lips, and the inside of your mouth, so you can keep enjoying the activities you love.
7. Invisalign aligners are comfortable
Last, but certainly not least, Invisalign aligners are far more comfortable than traditional braces. Metal braces often feel out-of-place in your mouth, causing your lips to puff out and catching on the inside of your cheeks. Invisalign clear aligners are smooth and lie close to your teeth, eliminating discomfort.
