Is Invisalign Worth It?

Not everyone is lucky enough to be born with a set of perfectly straight teeth. Straight teeth not only look great, but they also can improve one’s oral health and boost their self-confidence. If you are tired of looking in the mirror and not being in love with your smile, perhaps it’s time to try Invisalign in Concord, NH. 

White Park Dental offers comprehensive dentistry to patients who want a healthier, more beautiful smile. We proudly provide our community with Invisalign treatment for patients of all ages, and we believe Invisalign can help patients enjoy their smiles for a lifetime. 

What Is Invisalign? 

Invisalign is one of the most advanced alternative orthodontic systems in the world. Over the past several years, millions of smiles have been transformed with these clear adult braces. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is comfortable, discreet, and easily removable.

Invisalign aligners are made from plastic, so they are nearly invisible. With Invisalign, you no longer have to worry about clunky metal braces disrupting your smile line or irritating your gums.

5 Reasons Why Invisalign Is Worth It 

Invisalign offers several benefits for patients who want a straighter smile. Here are five reasons why our patients think Invisalign is worth it. 

#1 Customized to Fit Your Smile 

Customized to fit your unique bite, Invisalign clear aligners are made from BPA-free plastic and comfortably fit over your teeth. Once your dentist takes a model of your teeth, he or she will send it to an Invisalign lab for fabrication. Once your trays are ready, you can begin treatment immediately. 

#2 Convenient and Easy to Use 

Our patients love how simple and convenient Invisalign can be to use. Unlike metal orthodontics, Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners can be removed so you can enjoy your favorite foods. With metal braces, food can easily get stuck between the wires, and it can be difficult to remove.

Metal braces also limit your choices because certain foods—such as popcorn, chewing gum, hard crackers, and thick cuts of meat—can mess up the wires. Invisalign doesn’t hinder your ability to eat anything because you can remove the aligners at mealtime. You can also remove the aligners to properly brush and floss your teeth.

#3 Fewer Dental Appointments

Invisalign doesn’t require nearly as many dental visits as metal braces do. Your dentist doesn’t have to tighten any wires and fewer adjustments are needed, so you won’t spend as much time in the dental chair. 

#4 Invisalign Is Virtually Painless

Invisalign is made from thin but durable plastic that slides over your teeth much like a mouthguard. Over your treatment period, you will change your aligner trays, each set snugger than the previous set.

Each set of trays gradually aligns your teeth into the desired position, and it’s recommended that patients wear the trays 20 to 22 hours a day for optimal results. Because Invisalign is only made from plastic, you won’t have to deal with the hassle and discomfort of tightening wires. Instead, you will simply move on to the next aligner in the series. 

#5 An Invisalign Smile Is a Healthy Smile

Some people think Invisalign is purely cosmetic, but it can also improve your oral health. Crooked teeth typically experience more wear, damage, and injury because of their misalignment. There are also more places for plaque to hide in a crooked smile, which can increase your risk of tooth decay and gum inflammation. 

Straight teeth are easier to clean and keep healthy, and they can also improve your speech and chewing ability. When your teeth are straight, there is no excessive stress on your teeth and jaw joints, and your teeth are less prone to breakage.
