Start Invisalign® Your Senior Year and Get Ready for College
If you are interested in Invisalign® as a way to straighten your teeth, we encourage you to call and schedule a consultation. Invisalign® is typically used for adult patients but if you have all of your permanent teeth, you could be an excellent candidate for treatment. This is by far the easiest and most discreet way to straightening your teeth and improve your smile.
Unlike traditional metal braces, there are no brackets or wires to secure to your teeth. This means that you can go about your day without your friends noticing that you are using orthodontics.
There are many benefits to straightening your teeth with Invisalign®, including:
You can eat what you want
Once challenge with braces is having to adjust eating habits. With braces, it is difficult to bite into a sandwich or hamburger since food can easily stick between the brackets. Snacking on something like popcorn or trail mix can also pose a challenge since nuts can cause the brackets to move or a wire to break.
While metal braces are still an excellent treatment option, they make eating terribly inconvenient. With clear aligners, patients can eat whatever they want since the clear aligners are removable while eating. All one needs to do is keep them in a safe place while eating and put them back in after brushing the teeth.
It is easy to keep your teeth clean
All one needs to do is brush and floss like a normal hygiene routine. We recommend that a patient carries a travel toothbrush to use after lunch but otherwise, the process does not require much else. Since aligners come off when the patient brushes his or her teeth, the patient does not need any special tools. Using Invisalign® will not increase the amount of time it takes to care for one's teeth or increase the likelihood of stains. Thus, this process makes it a more convenient option than braces.
Invisalign® is discreet
Perhaps the best thing about this solution is that you cannot see it. As long as you keep your teeth and aligners clean, they should remain virtually clear. This means that you can smile and go about your day without people noticing that you are straightening your teeth.
