Invisalign is Nearly Invisible
If the top reason you have put off orthodontic treatment as an adult is that you didn’t want to deal with the appearance of metal braces, you’re in luck. With Invisalign clear aligners, your treatment is nearly invisible. The clear aligners are made of a thin plastic that is molded to fit your teeth. As long as you keep the aligners clean, most people won’t even know you’re wearing them. Invisalign aligners are great at staying discreet. This will allow you to continue showing up to work as your usual confident self. You don’t have to think about hiding your smile or steering clear of pictures, nobody but you and your Leesburg dentist will have to know about your Invisalign aligners.
Invisalign is Comfortable
Another reason so many patients want to avoid orthodontic treatment is that it can be quite painful. Just another reason Invisalign is perfect for adults, it remains to be one of the most comfortable orthodontic treatments. To start, the aligners are comfortable to wear. You won’t experience cutting your cheeks, lips, or tongue on the sides like you would on metal brackets and wires of metal braces. In addition, the aligners are changed every 2 weeks to a new pair. This results in gradually moving your teeth into position in smaller movements. With traditional braces, the movements take place all at once during an appointment every six weeks. This typically leaves the teeth sore and can cause headaches for a few days following the appointment. With Invisalign, your teeth may only be sore for a day when switching the aligners.
Another way that Invisalign is comfortable is because the treatment time is typically less than with metal braces. You can expect for your treatment to be completed in as little as 6 months! This means less time wearing aligners or braces and more time enjoying your beautiful smile!
Invisalign is Convenient
When it comes to convenience, Invisalign should be your top choice. The clear aligners are removable so that if you have a special event coming up or need to have your teeth cleaned, all you need to do is remove them. Although you should be wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours per day, you can remove them for longer every once in a while if you have a special event coming up. When it comes to visiting the dentist, all you have to do is pop out the aligners and you can have an easier dental exam and cleaning. With metal braces, you would need to have the wire removed prior to visiting us for a cleaning. This means you would have to travel to your orthodontist then your dentist then back to the orthodontist. This is a lot of running around!
Lastly, you can remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth. This means that your dental health won’t suffer during the duration of your orthodontic treatment. You can brush and floss just as effectively as before. With metal braces, it’s difficult to clean your teeth perfectly. Food and particles tend to get stuck in the brackets and flossing become extremely difficult to do with wires in the way. Invisalign is perfect for adults with its convenience.
You Can Eat Anything with Invisalign
Changing up your diet or limiting your food options because of braces can take a real damper on your life. With Invisalign, you can eat whatever you want during treatment. You need to remove your aligners first, but after that, you can feel free to consume all of the popcorn, nuts, corn on the cob and apples that your heart desires. The list of foods that are restricted when you have metal braces is quite long. Not to mention, food gets stuck in metal braces so easily. With Invisalign, you can easily brush and floss your teeth following a meal to keep your mouth fresh and teeth free of cavities.
You Won’t Feel Self-Conscious with Invisalign
One of the top reasons adults avoid orthodontic treatments is because they don’t want to feel self-conscious about having a mouth full of metal. Metal braces are associated with teenagers and when it adult has them, they will feel self-conscious of their smile. This might take away their confidence in their social life, dating life, and even professional life. Don’t let your orthodontic treatment take away your self-confidence. Experience life with Invisalign.
