Thanks to advancements in dentistry and innovations in technology, you don’t need to undergo years of treatment with metal brackets and dark-colored wires to address crooked, gapped, or misaligned teeth. In fact, thanks to Invisalign, more than eight million patients around the world have discreetly achieved their smile goals – no metal mouth required! However, the practically undetectable trays aren’t the only perk of choosing clear aligners. Read on for four freedoms of Invisalign!
#1. Freedom to Eat
Although effective, metal braces come with a long list of food restrictions. After all, all it takes is one crunch into an apple or bite into corn on the cob for one of the brackets to become loose or wires to break. Fortunately, the same cannot be said for Invisalign! Since the trays are entirely removable, you are free to indulge in all of your favorite foods throughout your treatment. Just make sure to pop them out beforehand and place them back in after your meal.
#2. Freedom from Discomfort
To effectively move your teeth into an entirely new position, some soreness is to be expected. Luckily, Invisalign’s aligners are custom-made for your unique smile, ensuring as minimal discomfort as possible. In fact, your dentist will even smooth out the edges, which will help prevent gum irritation and soft tissue cuts.
#3. Freedom to Brush
One of the drawbacks of traditional braces is that they make it incredibly difficult to brush and floss your teeth. However, neglecting to do so can cause dental problems, like tooth decay, which not only can wreak havoc on your oral health, but it can add more time to your treatment. On the other hand, if you choose Invisalign, your oral hygiene routine won’t be interrupted since you can just pop them out until you’re finished.
#4. Freedom to Socialize
It’s no secret that metal brackets and wires can take a toll on your confidence. After all, they are by no means discreet. Invisalign, however, is! Therefore, throughout your treatment you’ll feel confident grabbing a bite to eat with friends, scheduling job interviews, going on first dates, and attending any other social events that fill up your calendar.
Your life shouldn’t be put on hold while achieving your dream smile. That’s why Invisalign was created! Schedule your initial consultation with your dentist today to see just how hassle-free straightening your teeth can be.
