Hello again Birmingham, MI! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of the Newingham Dental Center. In our last post, we discussed how Invisalign could help patients with crooked teeth in the new year ahead. Invisalign orthodontics is a comfortable and discreet alternative to adult braces which can help give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

Since our last post, several patients have asked us to tell them a little more about what makes Invisalign braces so special. So today we’re going to give you an in-depth look at the advantages of choosing Invisalign braces over traditional adult braces. With our further ado, here’s the top four reasons to choose Invisalign from the Newingham Dental Center in Birmingham, MI!

Reason #1: Invisalign is More Discreet Than Traditional Adult Braces

For most adults and older teenagers, the appearance of traditional adult braces is a huge drawback. It’s hard to feel confident at work or school when you’re wearing metal brackets and wires. Adults worry about looking immature in their place of work, teenagers worry about getting made fun of at school.

Invisalign from the Newingham Dental Center in Birmingham, MI, is far more discreet. Invisalign aligners are designed to be practically unnoticeable in your smile. Most patients tell us that their family can’t even tell when they’re wearing their aligners! Plus, if you have a special occasion (such as wedding or graduation party) you can take your aligners out temporarily.

Reason #2: Invisalign is More Convenient Than Traditional Adult Braces

Traditional adult braces require a lot of upkeep. You have to make countless orthodontist appointments to have your braces tightened or adjusted. It can also be difficult to to do the little things in life; eating is a minefield and brushing your teeth becomes an extremely time-consuming endeavor.

Invisalign is designed to fit into the lifestyle and schedules of even the busiest adults or parents. You won’t have to make nearly as many dentist appointments with Invisalign braces. This helps save you time and money. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you’ll save a lot of time and effort when it comes time to eat or brush your teeth.

Reason #3: Invisalign is More Comfortable Than Traditional Adult Braces

The metal brackets and wires of traditional adult braces have a tendency to scratch the inside of your mouth. This can be extremely uncomfortable. That’s to say nothing of the discomfort involved with painful adjustments of traditional adult braces. It’s enough to make you want to avoid orthodontic treatment entirely.

Invisalign braces from the Newingham Dental Center in Birmingham, MI, were designed with comfort in mind. The customized plastic aligners fit snugly but comfortably over your teeth. The aligners are smooth, so you don’t have to worry about your mouth getting cut-up. In addition, Invisalign aligners don’t require any painful adjustments. Instead, you just move onto your new set of aligners!

Reason #4: Invisalign is Faster Than Traditional Adult Braces

Traditional adult braces take two years or longer for most patients. That’s two birthdays spent wearing unsightly metal brackets and wires. That’s two holiday seasons spent avoid your favorite foods because they might damage your braces. Traditional adult braces require a lot of discipline for successful orthodontic treatment.

Treatment times vary for all Invisalign patients. But in nearly every case, treatment with Invisalign is faster than treatment with traditional adult braces! Most adults only have to wear their Invisalign aligners for about a year.
