Benefits of Clear Aligners
At Dr. Tim Dumore & Team, we see many benefits in offering our patients Clear Aligners to help with correcting their crooked, misaligned teeth. These teeth aren't only unsightly, but they're also difficult to clean – which could result in periodontal disease and tooth loss eventually. Of course, conventional braces are available to help properly align your teeth, but they're unattractive, uncomfortable, embarrassing, and often painful. Clear Aligners offers a wonderful option here for many reasons.
Clear Aligners Looks Better Than Conventional Braces
With metal, your mouth may start to look unattractive because it looks like it's full of chunks of ugly metal that are challenging for you to deal with. This doesn't mean you won't notice that the Clear Aligners will go unnoticeable. You'll still see them there, especially if you're wearing them as an adult. Additionally, you may have some food that gets caught in them without you even knowing that this has happened. It's just that Clear Aligners in comparison to traditional, metal braces, Clear Aligners isn't very noticeable because it's almost invisible. They look almost like you're not even wearing any braces, which makes them a better option than traditional metal braces.
You can Remove Clear Aligners When Necessary
When you have traditional braces, they're attached to your teeth where they will stay until the end of your treatment at which point they're professionally removed. This is different with Clear Aligners because they're removable. This means that if for any reason, you want to remove your Clear Aligners retainers for a short amount of time, like when you're enjoying some food, it's easy for you to do so.
No Damage to Your Teeth and Gums with Clear Aligners
Traditional braces contain metal and wire. Sometimes these wires will protrude, and these metal pieces can puncture or scratch the inside of your mouth and your gums. This is different with Clear Aligners. These are clear braces that are comfortable to wear because they're smooth. Since there's no wires or any bits or pieces that are sharp or protrude from the braces themselves.
Additionally, it's important to understand that conventional metal braces can also have adverse effects if your teeth are demineralizing or decaying. This is because there's much force used by them in straightening your teeth. This is another problem you won't encounter with Clear Aligners. Instead, you'll experience a lot less damage than you'd typically experience from wearing braces which commonly result in problems that include cavities or even gum disease.
Clear Aligners can Straighten Your Teeth Fast
When you have conventional metal braces, you should expect your treatment to take as long as five years. However, with Invisalign, it can take anywhere from just one year to as long as 1.5 years.
You Will Have No Surprises
When you're thinking about getting Clear Aligners treatment, you'll undergo a time of fully computerized planning. This is great because you'll know precisely what you should expect and how long you will need to undergo treatment before it even begins. This is different from metal braces which are often a situation that's filled with lots of trial-and-error and doesn't give you a clear idea of the outcome.
