Thanks to modern advancements in orthodontics, there are plenty of orthodontic treatments that can help you get the smile of your dreams. However, when it comes to conveniently and beautifully straightening your smile, Invisalign stands above the rest. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligner trays that have been custom-made for your unique path towards correcting crooked teeth and bite issues. Here are five exciting freedoms you can expect to enjoy with Invisalign that you simply can’t get with other orthodontic treatments!
1.) Eat & Drink Whatever You Want
Unlike traditional braces that require you to stick to a restrictive diet, you don’t have to give up your favorite foods or drinks with Invisalign! Simply take your aligners out, enjoy your meal or snack, then give your teeth a quick brush before popping them back into place. As long as your aligners don’t come in contact with any foods or beverages (other than water), you can continue to eat and drink whatever you like during your treatment.
2.) Straighten Your Teeth Comfortably
Sharp metal wires and brackets from metal braces are notorious for causing irritation in the soft tissues. Thankfully, Invisalign aligners are carefully crafted out of a smooth piece of biocompatible plastic that should slide effortlessly past your lips, cheeks and tongue. Instead of protecting your mouth with orthodontic wax, you can enjoy a much more comfortable straightening experience with Invisalign!
3.) Keep Brushing & Flossing Easily
In comparison to traditional braces, Invisalign can save you plenty of time and hassle when it comes to keeping your smile healthy. You won’t have to worry about using special tools and techniques to clean around wires and brackets. Removing your aligners lets you practice your normal brushing and flossing routine easily. Keeping them clean is as simple as rinsing them off, brushing them lightly or using an Invisalign cleaning kit.
4.) Enjoy All Your Favorite Activities without Worry
Traditional braces can get in the way of fully enjoying some of your favorite hobbies and activities. Invisalign aligners on the other hand are designed to blend in with your busy, active lifestyle. You should have no problem playing your woodwind or brass instrument, participating in sports like football or basketball or enjoying any other activity where traditional braces would typically get in the way.
5.) Feel Free to Smile Confidently
While metal braces are undoubtedly one of the most effective orthodontic treatments available, they can take a toll on your self-confidence. With Invisalign, you can achieve equally effective results without an embarrassing or awkward mouth full of metal! All throughout your treatment, you can feel free to smile confidently knowing that your nearly invisible aligners won’t distract from your pearly whites. In fact, your friends and family probably won’t have any idea that you’re wearing your aligners unless you tell them!
You don’t have to sacrifice your freedoms while getting the orthodontic treatment you need. Talk to your dentist today to see if Invisalign is a good choice for you!
