Written by Dr. McConnell on Jul 12, 2022

If you want to straighten your smile and improve your dental alignment, you have probably already heard about Invisalign through the grapevine. Invisalign is a modern, patient-friendly alternative to traditional metal braces. The Invisalign system is designed to perfect your smile while fitting in seamlessly with your daily life. Today our Novato Invisalign dentists are reviewing some of the key reasons that people of many ages trust Invisalign to deliver results.

So, to quickly review, Invisalign straightens teeth, corrects misaligned bites, and more, using clear plastic aligners. While conventional braces utilize metal brackets and wires, Invisalign improves your smile by applying pressure to your teeth using clear plastic aligners.

  • The first reason that Invisalign is such an attractive cosmetic option is that the aligners that the patient wears are practically invisible when in place over the patient’s teeth. You don’t have to mar your smile with metal in order to achieve your dream smile. Our team has found that teens as well as adults prefer to perfect their smiles without drawing attention to their orthodontic appliances.
  • Another major benefit of Invisalign over traditional orthodontics is that Invisalign makes it so easy to keep your smile fresh and clean throughout the treatment process. Invisalign aligners are actually removable, so you’ll take them out to eat, drink anything other than water, and brush and floss. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about food particles, plaque, and tartar accumulating around your brackets and wires.
  • In general, patients report that wearing Invisalign is also much more comfortable than dealing with conventional braces. Invisalign plastic resin aligners are smooth, so they don’t irritate oral tissues like abrasive brackets and wires often do.

As you can see, Invisalign offers a number of advantages over other orthodontic treatment options. So, if you have been looking for a patient-friendly treatment this may be the perfect solution for your smile and for your life.
