Deciding whether to commit to undertaking orthodontic work is a big step.
Even once you’ve made that decision, you still need to select between variations of bracket-and-wire braces or clear aligners.
One of the options available to you is Invisalign, the clear aligner trusted by over 4 million patients worldwide.
Taking the time to research and understand how each option will affect you is an important step to ensure you are happy and comfortable with the process you ultimately choose.
Here are five benefits of Invisalign for you to note under the “Pros” section of your notes:
If you’re like most of our patients, you want your new smile to match your expectations.
Why clutter up that smile in the process of your journey with distracting metal braces?
Invisalign clear aligners are custom-created to fit your teeth with SmartTrack technology, and, whilst your aligner is in place, it’s nearly invisible and feels natural.
This allows you to start using Invisalign without people even knowing! Over the course of your treatment, your teeth will gently and gradually move into their best position without drastic changes to your appearance.
Best of all, you’ll be able to see your progress each time you look in the mirror.
Choosing to get your teeth straightened, especially as an adult, can be a daunting decision. The thought of looking like a picture from your old secondary school yearbook can be reason enough to avoid getting the beautiful smile you deserve.
Your dental work is your business, and Invisalign helps you keep it that way.
Because each set of aligners are custom-made for your teeth, they are easy to slip off for business dinners or to enjoy your favorite coffee. The rest of the time, they are comfortable and discreet enough to wear whilst shopping, making that big sales presentation or taking selfies.
Invisalign clear aligners are designed to be taken out whilst eating. In fact, your MiSmile professional will ask you to do so every time!
Since you won’t wear your aligners whilst eating, here’s the full list of foods you must avoid whilst having your teeth straightened:
…...there are none!
Popcorn, chewing gum and nuts—all these will still be on the table for you when you use Invisalign clear aligners.
We hope you’ll make balanced food choices for your overall and dental health, but your aligners certainly won’t stop you from eating your favorite foods.
A beautiful smile is a healthy one. As you straighten your teeth, you’ll want to avoid poor oral hygiene and the dental problems it creates, such as cavities and demineralisation.
Metal braces can make it difficult and time-consuming to clean your teeth and gums. Food particles can get trapped among the wiring, brushing becomes an intricate affair and flossing can be a major ordeal.
With Invisalign, taking care of your smile is easy. Simply brush your teeth after each meal whilst your aligner is still out, and enjoy cleaning your teeth without the worry of metal brackets and wiring.
At the end of the day, remove the aligner once more for your bedtime teeth-cleaning. You’ll be heading to bed with a fresh, clean mouth whilst the comfortable Invisalign clear aligner gently does its work.
As mentioned above, braces can make cleaning your teeth difficult. As a result, you could end up with an array of dental issues if you aren’t fastidious in your oral care whilst wearing braces.
Issues can include…
Invisalign clear aligners solve these problems very simply: take the appliance out, brush and floss as you normally would and then put the aligner back in.
The most important step on the decision-making journey is talking to a MiSmile professional about which option is right for you.
