The idea of dealing with metal braces on a social level can be extremely disheartening for both teens and adults. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without that obvious ‘braces’ look.
Invisalign clear aligners have several benefits over traditional braces. Most of these fall in two different categories:
You can take your Invisalign aligners out to eat - This means that unlike with traditional braces, you can eat anything you like, with no limitations and nothing getting stuck in your wires or brackets to embarrass you! Just make sure you clean your teeth thoroughly after each meal and snack, before putting your aligners back in.
You can take them out to brush and floss - You can also remove your aligners to brush and floss, so no spending ages trying to carefully clean around each pesky nook and cranny between wires and brackets. And again, your braces won't be hanging onto food debris and plaque buildup.
You don’t have to visit us as often! - We’re always happy to see our patients, but we understand that you all have busy lives, and that making time in their schedules for adjustment appointments isn’t always easy to do! Since your Invisalign aligners come in a series of multiple aligners that need to be changed at prescribed intervals throughout your treatment. That means there are no adjustments necessary and you don’t have to make time in your schedule to see us as often.
Your Invisalign aligners are made of BPA-free, transparent plastic, so when you’re wearing them, they’re all but invisible.
This means that your co-workers, your friends or your date may not even notice that you're undergoing orthodontic treatment. You’ll be surprised at how many people don’t even catch on.
And as mentioned above, you don't have to worry about your food getting caught on your brackets and wires to haunt you later!
