Have you been unhappy with your smile? Do you have crooked teeth, crowded teeth, gaps in your teeth, or front teeth that stick out? Do you have an overbite or underbite? Is your uneven smile noticeable?
You could have been made fun of for your teeth, or they might have just made you self-conscious.
You may have considered getting braces but thought those would draw even more attention to your mouth. After all, even your friends couldn’t disguise theirs with the clear rubber bands they used on their braces.
If you’re an adult now, braces would be even more distracting because of your age. As a professional, you don’t want a client or your colleagues subconsciously thinking that your braces make you seem younger and therefore less experienced at what you do than you really are.
Whether you’re 15 or 45, there may be an excellent solution to help you get a nice, straight smile—without being a metal mouth.
Invisalign Can Straighten Your Teeth . . . Invisibly!
The best thing about Invisalign is that it straightens your smile almost entirely invisibly. Invisalign’s two aligners—one that slides on to your top set of teeth and one that fits over the bottom set—are made of a high-quality, clear plastic that’s difficult to see.
This doesn’t mean that they won’t be as effective as braces; Invisalign, like braces, can permanently straighten your teeth.
Invisalign Is Comfortable
Braces are made of metal and are attached to your teeth. Having metal in your mouth can be very uncomfortable, and it can create sores on your cheeks or hurt your tongue. On the other hand, Invisalign’s smooth, plastic aligners are comfortable. This also makes them much more ideal if you play sports that can put you at risk of getting hit in the mouth.
You also don’t have to deal with wax that goes around the brackets to keep the sharp metal from hurting your mouth because there is no sharp metal!
Invisalign Can Help Keep Your Teeth Healthy
If you have crowded teeth, you’ve realized that it’s difficult for you to keep the nooks and crannies between your teeth clean, even after you brush and floss. The bacteria that builds up in those hard-to-reach spots can develop into cavities or contribute to gum disease.
Invisalign can help reduce the risk of problems like these by fixing your crowded teeth and making it easy for you to brush and floss again. It’s easy to clean your teeth, too, because . . .
Invisalign Is Removable
One of the best benefits we hear about Invisalign wearers is that they can still eat what they want and clean whenever they need to because Invisalign aligners are removable.
Eating What You Want
Ever had food stuck in your teeth without knowing it, only to look in the mirror later and discover it? If you have braces, you can guarantee that food will constantly get stuck inside of them. This can making eating around people uncomfortable.
When food does get stuck, people wearing braces have to clean them out several times a day. You can see how that would be an annoying, time-consuming process.
Have you ever read the list of foods that braces wearers can’t eat, or foods that they have to limit because they can get stuck in their teeth? Popcorn is a definite no-no, while hard, crunchy foods like corn on the cob, carrots, nuts, apples, celery, and hard candy can loosen or even break the brackets and wires, meaning you will have to go to your orthodontist to get them fixed.
Bread (including bagels, rolls, and pizza crust), pretzels, and chips are notorious for building up in your braces, while fruit that contains small, edible seeds like strawberries, and also leafy greens like spinach, can get stuck inside your braces and be embarrassing when you discover too late that that was the reason everyone had been staring at you while you were eating!
With Invisalign, you don’t have to change your diet—you can just take off your aligners and put them back on when you’re done eating.
Cleaning When You Need To
Invisalign also allows you to clean your teeth like anyone without braces would; just take off the plastic aligners, clean, and put them back on when you’re done. You don’t have to deal with the hassle of brushing with those toothbrushes for braces!
Invisalign Saves Time
Not only do you have to spend less time cleaning your teeth with Invisalign, but you also might have to spend less time wearing them! Invisalign aligners are usually kept on for 12 months, while braces are typically worn for at least a year and a half or longer.
