11 Oct Invisalign: The Smile Straightening Solution for Adults
Your smile is meant to radiate attractiveness, confidence and health. This is important because studies show that it is our facial feature others notice first. Data also reveals that we gravitate toward individuals with bright, straight teeth. So, what do you do when you realize that your crooked smile is sending the wrong message? It’s simple: You come to Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne to be fitted for Invisalign clear braces.
Age Appropriate Invisalign
If fixing your smile means revisiting your youth and wearing metal braces like your youngest child, we understand your hesitancy. Thankfully, there is an option now that removes the stigma associated with traditional braces.
Invisalign is nearly undetectable, so people don’t have to know that your are going through orthodontic treatment, and you can remove them for social events. You have to remove the trays for eating and before replacing them you have to brush and floss. I have found that most of my patients oral hygiene has improved and they have found that they have lost weight because they snack less. Read more at Realself
Having the option to remove your trays for eating and drinking means the chances of food becoming trapped in your appliance disappears. Never again worry about having that elusive piece of spinach stuck to your braces all day and being the last to know.
Maintain Your Oral Hygiene Easily During Treatment
A huge plus with Invisalign is having the ability remove your aligners and brush and floss as usual. Detailed daily cleaning with special floss isn’t an issue with Invisalign. Neither is dealing with the potential staining that can occur with traditional metal braces.
Unbelievable Straightening Speed
Many adults turn to Invisalign to prepare for special events like weddings, college graduations or milestone birthdays. On average, each aligner is worn for about three weeks and many patients are finished with treatment in around a year, a fraction of the time compared to traditional methods.
Eat Freely and Avoid Unnecessary Pain with Invisalign
Possibly the best feature of taking the Invisalign route is that you will save your mouth from unnecessary cuts and open sores while being able to enjoy all of your favorite foods during treatment.
With regular braces, you may experience some or all of the following: pain, discomfort, mouth sores or injuries caused by the brace wires, tooth decay (from inadequate brushing and flossing), plaque buildup, tooth discoloration, tooth/bracket breakage, or difficulty eating. As if that weren’t enough, there are also the personal sacrifices — no popcorn, chips, bagels, hard-crusted bread, pizza crust, pretzels, nuts, certain candies and even some healthy foods like apples, carrots, corn on the cob and more.
