If you wear Invisalign® clear aligners, then you may be familiar with the variety of benefits that they provide throughout the course of your orthodontic treatment. For example, with clear aligners, your entire treatment process is much more discreet. This means you can go through your treatment more confidently than with traditional orthodontic braces. However, there are also benefits that involve the day-to-day care of your smile. Compared to conventional braces, with brackets and wires to work around, Invisalign® clear aligners help make your dental hygiene routine easier and more effective.

Using clear aligners to straighten teeth

The benefits that many patients appreciate most about clear aligners is the fact that they aren’t obvious when you’re wearing them. For many patients, their smile’s appearance is a major part of their self-confidence, and the prospect of wearing orthodontic appliances that barely anyone can notice can often be the greatest benefit. In addition, clear aligners also help make your treatment much more convenient. Designed to replaced periodically, clear aligners can be temporarily removed to make everyday tasks easier, including caring for your teeth by cleaning them consistently.

Daily hygiene with orthodontic treatment

When your teeth aren’t aligned properly, their misalignment can pose a significant risk to your oral health, which is why straightening them is so important. However, tooth misalignment isn’t the only thing that can threaten your smile, and throughout your treatment, your daily hygiene routine is still essential to keeping your smile healthy. With conventional brackets and wires, however, the process of cleaning your teeth can be more challenging. In addition to successfully cleaning your teeth, you also have to work around the brackets and wires to ensure that you carefully remove all of the plaque and food particles from between them.

The advantages of Invisalign® clear aligners

The good thing about dental hygiene with clear aligners is that you don’t have to accommodate the same brackets and wires. In fact, for optimal results, you can temporarily remove your Invisalign® clear aligners before brushing and flossing your teeth. This eliminates the need to clean around brackets and wires, and also, helps make keeping your teeth clean easier and more effective every day. In addition to straightening your misaligned teeth, you can also enjoy improved oral health through a more convenient dental hygiene routine.
