Invisalign patients understand just what makes their orthodontic treatment unlike any other type of teeth straightening options. Yes, their aligners are clear and invisible to everyone around them, but the actual treatment has so many more benefits than most people realize.
Fewer, Shorter Trips to Your Dentist
Invisalign uses pre-made alignment trays that are customized for your smile. That means you won’t have to set up dental appointments to have wires adjusted or bands changed out every month. Instead, you’ll take several sets of aligners home and progress your treatment on your own! Image Care Dental Group simply oversees your progress at short, intermittent visits to make sure your teeth are responding as they should.
Simple Oral Hygiene
Traditional braces can be very difficult to clean around. The multiple brackets and wires mean that brushing and flossing aren’t enough. Other aids like floss threaders, proxa-brushes and water flossers are the only way to make sure you won’t have white circles left on your teeth after the braces are removed. Thankfully, Invisalign makes oral hygiene as simple as ever, without any special tricks or tools. Simply remove your aligners, brush and floss as normal, then brush your aligner out with a toothbrush and warm tap water. It’s that simple!
Eat Anything You Like
There are no dietary restrictions for Invisalign patients. During your meals it’s important to remove your aligners and then you can enjoy anything that you like. Just remember to place your aligner back into your mouth when you are through eating. Conventional orthodontics patients must be much more careful. Many types of food can damage or break their braces, making it a requirement to cut certain things from their diet. Some people even find that they lose weight because of how difficult it is to eat with traditional orthodontic equipment.
Take Them Out if You Need To
Conventional braces can impact the way you talk, making speech a challenge during meetings or presentations. Even though Invisalign is more comfortable and convenient than any other type of orthodontics, you still have the option to remove them for important events when you need less to worry about.
It’s no surprise that so many adults choose Invisalign braces because of how convenient they are. Just about everyone agrees that Invisalign are more comfortable and easier to comply with than metal braces. At Image Care Dental Group, we offer Invisalign options to adults and teens. It’s never too late to enjoy a straighter, more beautiful smile. To explore your options, schedule a consultation at our practice. You can call us at (972) 895-3952 or contact us online.
