Invisalign is one of the most sought-after orthodontic aligners. Its amazing aesthetics and high effectiveness place it ahead of other alternatives, such as metal and ceramic braces. It is known to be of great use, especially to teenagers, as they could make the most of its transparent nature.
Are you confused about getting orthodontic treatment?
If you have a teenage son or daughter who is having malocclusion issues, there could be several questions on your mind about getting the right orthodontic treatment for them. They could be in a fix as they would want to get their misalignment issues resolved but keep braces away as they ruin the appearance of their smile during the treatment period. If you’re facing a similar situation, then Invisalign is the best option for you!
Keep the aligners in disguise
Metal or ceramic braces are very apparent due to their physical nature. Any person within close proximity could easily notice them when you talk or smile. To teenagers, this could lead to a lot of embarrassment when someone points out at their braces. But, with Invisalign, you wouldn’t face such scenarios. Invisalign is made from transparent dental-grade plastic material that comfortably fits over your teeth. Even when you put on a broad smile or talk to people, the aligner would stay in disguise unless someone takes a closer look, or you disclose it to them yourself.
No restrictions on your food habits
Patients who have got dental braces would be advised to avoid certain foods that would damage or get stuck in between the teeth and braces. This adversely affects the effectiveness of the treatment and could lead to plaque and tartar build-up on the teeth. On the other hand, you can eat anything and everything during your Invisalign treatment. You just have to remove the aligner, eat or drink anything you like, clean your teeth to get rid of the food debris from the mouth, and then put the aligners back on. It’s as simple as that!
Wear them to school or office with confidence
While wearing Invisalign, you would hardly feel its presence as it blends in well with your mouth. You can comfortably wear them to school or office and get on with your everyday activities as usual without being interrupted. On special occasions, such as a league game, graduation day, an important date, or a presentation you need to make, you may take them off and keep them safely aside. However, on regular days, we suggest you wear them for as long as possible, preferably 22 hours a day.
