Invisalign®, the Clear Choice


It’s always been pretty common to see kids or teenagers having to wear some type of teeth correction product, right? Wither it’s traditional braces or having to wear a night guard while sleeping, at some point we’ve seen someone go through that process. But, what about adults? On average most adults would shun the idea of sporting either of those options, mainly due to the perceived embarrassment one might think they would go through. So, what do you do then? Fortunately, there might be an option that might work out in your favor, Invisalign®. Invisalign® is a tooth straitening product that’s a great option for adults that don’t want to wear traditional braces or other cumbersome teeth correcting items.

Listed below are some reasons why patients choose Invisalign:

1. Freedom to Eat

Unlike standard braces, Invisalign® aligner trays are removable which is a major reason why most adults choose them. They should be removed before meals; this makes it possible to continuously enjoy the foods you do now rather than limiting those foods if you had a fixed orthodontic appliance like braces. Be sure to brush and floss after each meal before reinstalling your trays, this will cut back on bacteria build-up plus, it’s just good hygiene.

2. Zero Social Anxiety

Invisalign trays are transparent which is great for social settings. They allow you to go out with friends and family without worrying if you look silly or if people are questioning why you have braces at your age, ultimately avoiding social awkward and embarrassing moments. Wearing Invisalign® trays are also known to boost the self-esteem of their wearer.

3. Practical and Efficient

Along with the prior reasons, Invisalign® aligners are very practical for people in today’s society. People today are always on the go and looking for the newest technology, what fits that description better than removable, see-through braces? You won’t have to worry about continuously going to the dentist to retighten them because you’ll receive new aligners in the mail. Some patients even say that the Invisalign treatments work just as well if not faster than traditional braces.
