The word ‘braces’ has a negative connotation to many people, thanks to mean comments, such as ‘brace face’ or ‘metal mouth’. Luckily today, there’s an incredible alternative to the unsightly metal braces of the past.
Enter – Invisalign. Unlike the food limitations, regular maintenance and mouth irritations associated with traditional braces, Invisalign is a walk in the park.
Invisalign makes use of a series of almost invisible aligners custom-made for your teeth. More importantly, Invisalign braces are removable, clear, and comfortable. Because of this, they have the unique ability to transform your smile without disrupting your day to day life. The aligners are replaced every two weeks. Each week, your teeth move gradually closer to the final perfect position.
Invisalign has an impressive track record when it comes to straightening teeth and improving smiles in people of all ages.
If the cost of Invisalign is holding you back from your perfect smile and improved dental health, then keep reading. The cost of Invisalign will depend on your dentist and on your specific dental needs. But remember, Invisalign is incredibly successful at correcting bite and teeth problems. These problems left untreated will only get worse and will cause serious dental health issues in the future.
These issues, without a doubt, will cost you more pain, time, and money than if you chose Invisalign in the first place. The last thing you want is to avoid Invisalign due to the price, only to experience a chain of costly issues later in life.
One of the most difficult challenges of having braces is cleaning your teeth properly. With Invisalign aligners, you are able to remove the fitted trays. Once the trays are removed, you can brush and floss your teeth, as well as clean the aligners separately.
Your gums are able to better fit your teeth when your smile is properly aligned. The closer the fit of gums around teeth, the less bacteria and food particles can cause problems. Invisalign is able to gently move your teeth into place without harming your gums, making it hard to floss, or poking and cutting you like traditional braces.
Jaw problems, uneven wearing, sensitivity and a host of other issues can result from misaligned teeth. Invisalign is able to remove the chance of these problems by aligning your smile and creating an optimal situation for dental care.
No one wants to walk around with traditional metal braces in their mouth. They could interfere with personal relationships, and if you need to look professional for your job, a mouthful of braces isn’t the look you’re likely after. But Invisalign braces are invisible. You can wear them all day long and no one will know that you’re in the process of straightening your teeth.
Sometimes you just want to eat a meal or drink something hot without having to worry about your braces. With the new orthodontics, you can take your Invisalign braces in and out as you please. With traditional braces, you have to be careful that you don’t break them with hard foods, but you’ll never be limited in what you eat and drink with Invisalign.
When you wear metal braces you have to periodically visit the dentist to have the wires tightened and adjusted. This is a very painful process that can leave your mouth feeling sore for days. Sometimes it can cause the metal wires to poke the inside of your mouth, causing abrasions. But with Invisalign braces, you won’t have to endure that type of pain on your dental visits.
Orthodontic care isn’t just for kids. Though we often associate braces and similar advanced dental procedures with young adults and preteens, adults who are interested in treatments for issues with alignment have plenty of options at their disposal. Invisalign, for example, is a great solution for adults. Here’s why.
Many people are fit with braces when they’re younger but experience small gaps and other alignment issues as they get older. Getting braces would be overkill in this situation, and many adults don’t consider other dental solutions. Invisalign is a good option for adults because it’s a less extensive solution compared to braces and can result in better-looking teeth. Invisalign trays can also be taken out and cleaned at home, making them far more convenient than braces.
Unlike braces, no one will know you’re wearing Invisalign unless you share your secret. Invisalign trays fit more comfortably in your mouth and don’t rub against your gums and lips like braces do. Wire braces also cause a lot more discomfort, as they’re designed to fix more extensive alignment problems.
If you’ve ever worn braces, you remember that certain food items were off limits. Even healthy foods, like apples or dates, could damage your braces or require extensive cleaning after you’re done eating. Since Invisalign trays can easily be removed, you have more flexibility in terms of your diet. You’ll also have a much easier time cleaning them compared to the care required for braces. Also, depending on what your dentist recommends, you won’t have to wear your trays 24/7.
