Benefits of Invisalign

At Platte Valley Dental Care in Platte City, MO, Dr. Blaha is proud to offer patients an alternative to metal braces, Invisalign treatment. There are many benefits of Invisalign that most patients don’t know about that can make orthodontic treatment less painful, uncomfortable and a better overall experience. Find out what makes Invisalign different by reading about the many benefits of Invisalign treatment.


One of the top benefits of Invisalign treatment is the amount of comfort experienced during treatment. Since the aligners are switched out every 2 weeks instead of one painful tightening every 6 weeks, your teeth are moving gradually instead of all at once. This, as a result, makes Invisalign treatment less painful than traditional orthodontic treatments. Another reason Invisalign is more comfortable is because of the clear plastic aligners. The clear aligners are made of thin plastic shaped to perfectly match your teeth, leaving you feeling like you’re not even wearing braces. There will be no sharp brackets or wires stabbing you in your cheek, gums or tongue, making this significantly more comfortable than traditional braces.


Do you hate the sight of metal braces and groan at the thought of giving up your favorite foods like popcorn, nuts, and candy? With Invisalign, you can eat whatever you want, whenever you want. Thanks to their convenience, you are able to remove them to eat, allowing you to eat your favorite foods during your treatment. Another benefit of Invisalign is that it’s invisible. This is another convenience you won’t find with traditional orthodontic methods. You won’t need to hide your smile or avoid events during your Invisalign treatment in Platte City because nobody will notice your clear aligners in pictures or even in person. You can always remove the aligners for small periods of time if you absolutely need to as well.

Better Dental Hygiene

I know this may not sound like the biggest benefit for you, but it truly is. With metal braces, it’s difficult to floss and brush your teeth properly, leaving you exposed to the potential threat of cavities at every moment. Even dental cleanings are difficult because the brackets get in the way. Your dentist in Platte City will not only love your Invisalign aligners for an easier dental cleaning, but you are able to continue brushing and flossing as effectively as you were before your treatment. This means you won’t have to worry about getting unnecessary cavities or painful dental problems during your treatment because you will be able to properly care for your teeth at all times.
