A lot of people have had braces during childhood to straighten crooked teeth. However, for individuals who did not have braces when younger or had their teeth change positions after reaching adulthood, getting braces can seem like a daunting and even embarrassing task.
Fortunately, if you are an adult who does not want to settle for easily detectable braces, you can use Invisalign to straighten your teeth. Invisalign is a treatment that involves wearing multiple sets of aligners to gradually straighten your teeth over time.
Let’s take a look at the benefits of Invisalign.
One of the things that probably put you off from straightening your teeth with traditional braces was the fact that everyone would see the metal braces, brackets, and wires in your mouth. Not only are traditional braces uncomfortable, they can lower your confidence.
Invisalign aligners are clear and do not have brackets or wires. They look similar to retainers and are difficult to detect when placed in the mouth. Most people around you will have no idea you are wearing an aligner. This gives you the ability to maintain a clear and beautiful smile throughout your treatment.
Fewer Diet Restrictions
With metal braces, you cannot enjoy eating candy, popcorn, and chocolates. If you do eat them, it will require extensive time cleaning your braces. Braces can also make it difficult for you to chew and bite into a variety of foods due to pain from braces as well as physical restrictions the brackets and wires cause.
With Invisalign aligners, you do not have to worry about these things. Simply remove the aligner during meal time and enjoy any food you like. Prior to reinserting the aligner, brush your teeth thoroughly. With Invisalign, you do not have to compromise on the things you eat, making it an easier treatment to go through.
Traditional braces require regular maintenance by a dentist. You have to get them thoroughly cleaned and tightened on a regular basis. This required not only a lot of time in the dentist’s chair but also a lot of pain. With Invisalign, your cleanings and checkups are far less extensive than those required of traditional braces. You simply get a new aligner every time your teeth have adjusted to the current one. Cleaning the aligner and your teeth is simple and easy.
Invisalign aligners allow you to go about your day without having to be self-conscious about metal braces covering your teeth. Because it is difficult to spot the aligner in your mouth, you can go about your day without a worry. Simply put the aligner on your teeth and forget about them. You can talk, smile, and laugh all you want without having to worry about anyone noticing anything on your teeth.
