The benefits of Invisalign are changing the way in which traditional metal braces are used to straighten a patient’s teeth. Invisalign provides patients at Gold Coast Smiles with a comfortable, removable, and almost invisible, set of braces. These modern braces are an alternative to the previous traditional way of affixing braces to your teeth.
The benefits of Invisalign are numerous and unique to this modern way of realigning your teeth. Invisalign uses clear aligners which over time will gradually move your teeth into their required positions.
Traditional metal braces can give your mouth and unattractive appearance, as your teeth are covered by unsightly metal braces. Invisalign is the complete opposite of this as the braces are barely noticeable, thanks to the clear materials which are used as they are fit to your teeth. In comparison to metal braces, Invisalign clear braces provide you with a more attractive appearance.
When you have traditional metal braces applied and fixed to your teeth, they are often uncomfortable as the braces can rub on your cheeks and gums causing abrasions and painful ulcers. Invisalign clear braces can be removed when necessary and cause less pain as they have been designed to minimise rubbing or aggravating your gums.
Metal braces once attached to your teeth cannot be removed unless done so by a professional. With Invisalign clear braces you can remove them at anytime you like, such as during eating and you can simply refit them afterwards.
When deciding if Invisalign clear braces are a perfect choice for your teeth, you will be able to discuss this with us at Gold Coast Smiles. During your consultation we will discuss with you what you can expect and the duration of time which you will be required to wear the Invisalign braces for.
Unlike traditional metal braces which can result in a trial and error situation, Invisalign clear braces often result in straightening your teeth in as little as one year. While Invisalign braces might cost slightly more than metal ones, they are much more comfortable and pose fewer risks to your teeth and gums.
