There are lots of pros of invisalign.
First of all, it’s probably more comfortable. The reason why it’s more comfortable is because if you’re trying to move a tooth from here to here, braces pushes it hard. Invisalign segments that movement out very slowly and the magnitude of force placed on the tooth is actually a more even force. That’s what makes it more comfortable.
Second, there’s a tremendous value hygienically to being able to take invisalign trays in and out of your mouth. Braces accumulate plaque around them. It’s difficult to clean around. You can take the aligners out easily with this removal tool and keep them in the case for keeping clean, then you can brush and floss normally. So there’s a great hygienic advantage to it. You can eat whatever you want because you can clean your teeth after you’ve eaten them.
Third, there’s also an advantage in terms of less emergency appointments. There’s just less opportunity for breakage. With braces, sometimes even despite patients that follow rules and don’t eat really hard things or really sticky things can break. With invisalign, there’s very few things that can break and when they do break they tend not to cause problems. They won’t cause pain or discomfort. So there is also a comfort advantage there.
And the last, a lot of times it fits into people’s lifestyles really well so maybe they don’t want people to know that they’re doing orthodontic treatment, invisalign is just a little more inconspicuous.
