Invisalign: Straight Teeth With Less Hassle

Dr. Kyandukhta Kalantari at Dentistry at Kennesaw Point loves seeing her patients’ smiles — and self-confidence — brighten with Invisalign® clear aligners. There’s a reason why Invisalign remains the most popular clear teeth aligner system today. In fact, there are multiple reasons! Here are six of the most common reasons people seek Invisalign for straighter teeth with less hassle. 

1. No bulky metal brackets

No brackets, no wires, no rubber bands. With Invisalign, you won’t have to endure the many pieces and parts of traditional braces that make them absolutely miserable. This means your lips won’t puff out over your braces, brackets won’t get caught on the soft tissue of your inner cheeks, and you’ll never cut your tongue on stray wires. 

Oh, and you’ll never have to deal with those uncomfortable rubber bands that somehow end up all over your home and in every bag you own. How’s that for hassle-free? 

2. Easier to keep your teeth clean

One of the primary benefits of Invisalign aligners is that they come right off when it’s time to brush. With regular braces, you have to poke and prod around obstacles that make it difficult to reach nooks and crannies in between teeth. With Invisalign, just pop them off and brush and floss as usual. 

3. No foods off-limits

Corn on the cob, unsliced apples, beef jerky, hard candy, taffy, popcorn — all foods your orthodontist would advise that you don’t eat with metal braces. But with Invisalign, no foods are off-limits, so you can eat all of your favorite foods without fear of an emergency trip to the orthodontist. 

Before you eat, simply remove your aligners. After you eat, brush your teeth and then place the aligners back on. 

4. Keep up with sports and activities

Playing sports, particularly contact sports and ball sports, is tough with braces. There’s always the possibility of getting smacked in the face with a ball or an elbow, leading to a gash in your mouth or expensive repairs to brackets. That’s no worry at all when you opt for Invisalign, because the aligners lie flat against your teeth and have no sharp edges. 

5. No painful appointments

Anyone who’s had traditional braces can talk for hours about how badly it hurts to get them tightened. Seriously. A single appointment can leave you sipping on smoothies and nibbling on soft cheese for days, because your teeth get so tender you can’t eat anything else. 

Tightening begone with Invisalign — you do have to switch out your aligners every so often, but you won’t experience the pain of tightening braces.

6. Quicker results

Invisalign takes an average of 6-18 months to perfectly straighten teeth, whereas braces take, on average, 18 months to three years. If you’re looking for a quicker way to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is the way to go.
