Being able to smile with confidence isn’t something that everyone can do. There are adults who aren’t proud of their teeth because they are crooked or because they have gaps in their smile. Getting braces as an adult often draws attention to the imperfection that you are already self-conscious about and the reason many adults avoid getting them. A great alternative to braces is Invisalign®. The following guide walks you through a few of the benefits that come with having Invisalign® corrective liners over braces.
Invisalign® Doesn’t Hamper Your Ability to Eat
Many people who get braces on their teeth have to change their diet dramatically. Food gets stuck in the braces or can pull on them, which can be painful. When you use Invisalign® as an alternative to braces you can still eat anything that you want because you actually take out the liners when you eat. It’s recommended to remove the liners so you can chew, brush your teeth and then put them back in once you are finished.
Invisalign® Allows for Discreet Positioning Correction
Invisalign® aligners are clear and not visible to the naked eye as many people think they are. People often make the mistake of thinking that they are very shiny and easy to seek when you have them in your mouth, but really they aren’t. They blend in with your teeth so that no one can tell you have them in unless you tell them.
Invisalign® Isn’t Painful
One of the biggest drawbacks of braces is how painful they can be. They pull your teeth into different positions by force in a very short period of time. Invisalign® allows your teeth to be shifted gradually to decrease the chances of feeling any pain and to make the repositioning process as easy as it can possibly be.
When you use Invisalign® as an alternative to braces you also cut down on the amount of time that you have to spend in the orthodontist’s office, which can save you a lot of money over time. The aligners are sent to your house as needed and the only time you need to go to the orthodontist is to check to make sure that your teeth are repositioning properly. If any issues are noticed, changes can be made to future aligners to ensure that the repositioning process goes as smoothly as it possibly can and you can get the smile you want and deserve.
