Crooked or misaligned teeth not only look unsightly, they can also make cleaning the teeth difficult. Teeth that cannot be properly cleaned can eventually contract periodontal disease. This risks gum and bone damage, as well as tooth loss. Wearing teeth braces is a way to properly align the teeth. However, conventional braces are less than attractive, decidedly uncomfortable, and can be painful to wear. Adults can be especially embarrassed to wear them. Invisalign® clear braces are a great alternative. Here are five reasons why one might wish to choose Invisalign® over conventional metal braces:

#1. Appearance

Invisalign® Clear Braces Look Better Metal braces can cause the appearance of the mouth to be unattractive, as though it is filled with awkward chunks of unsightly metal.

#2. Comfort
