With so many orthodontic treatment choices like our Monticello clear & metal braces, and clear removable aligners, it can be tough deciding what treatment option is right for you. While many of our patients choose to improve their smiles with standard braces that are cemented to the teeth, a growing number of adults and teens are choosing our Champaign & Monticello Invisalign treatment because it offers many advantages over regular braces. To help you decide if Invisalign is the right treatment for you, we’ve put together some of the main benefits offered by Invisalign.

It’s Super Discreet

If the idea of spending several months with visible braces cemented to your teeth isn’t so appealing to you, you should know that Invisalign is the most discreet orthodontic treatment method available today. Just as the name implies, Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten teeth. When you have the aligners in your mouth, most people won’t even notice them.

No Oral Hygiene Hassles

When you’re wearing regular braces, you have to take your oral hygiene up a notch or two to make sure you thoroughly brush and floss around all the wires and brackets on your teeth. This involves learning new brushing & flossing techniques and using special tools like a floss threader and interdental toothbrush. With Invisalign, all you have to do is take the aligners out and brush and floss your teeth as you normally do!

Can Continue Eating All Your Favorite Foods

Since brackets and wires making up braces can be easily damaged by the wrong food choices, people wearing regular braces have to avoid eating foods that are hard, chewy, and crunchy. With Invisalign, you never have to worry about what you eat because you simply remove the aligners at meal and snack time.

Better Comfort

Since the smooth plastic aligners don’t have any wires or brackets that can poke and irritate the inside of your cheeks and lips, your treatment with Invisalign will be comfortable. You’ll never have to hassle with orthodontic wax or take time out of your schedule to visit your orthodontist to have a poking wire or a rubbing bracket adjusted.

Can Enjoy More Free Time

People wearing regular braces have to visit their orthodontists every four weeks or so to have their archwires tightened up. This can make orthodontic treatment inconvenient. With Invisalign, you’ll only need to visit your orthodontist every six weeks or so for quick appointments designed to check your treatment progress. With fewer orthodontic appointments to keep, you can enjoy having more free time in your schedule to do all the things you enjoy!
