Have you long had a wish for straight teeth but absolutely no desire to walk around as a metal mouth? Invisalign makes it possible for adults to get a perfectly aligned smile without the hassle of metal braces. Not convinced that braces in any form are right for you? Here are five reasons why you should choose Invisalign.
1. Invisalign is practically invisible.
One of the main reasons that adults drag their feet about pursuing orthodontia is because they’re embarrassed about how they might look wearing braces. But Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that straighten your teeth on the sly. No one needs to know that you’re wearing an Invisalign aligner unless you share that information with them.
2. Invisalign doesn’t affect speech.
Invisalign aligners are so thin and fitted so snugly to your teeth that they won’t affect your speech or interfere with your life. These facts can ease the minds of busy professionals who find themselves often speaking in front of a crowd, a board room, a judge, customers, or students.
3. Invisalign wearers don’t have to change their diet.
Popcorn and caramel lovers, rejoice! While traditional metal braces require that you give up certain foodstuffs to avoid damaging your brackets and wires, Invisalign makes no such demands. Invisalign aligners are not permanent and, because they’re easily removed, you have the freedom to eat and drink whatever you like. You don’t have to sacrifice what you love to eat to get the perfect smile.
4. It’s easy to maintain good oral hygiene when wearing Invisalign.
Braces-wearers can have a difficult time cleaning their teeth properly. It’s quite a challenge to get in between all of those brackets. With Invisalign, you can remove the aligners whenever you want to brush or floss your teeth or clean the aligner trays.
5. Invisalign is comfortable.
The brackets and wires of traditional metal braces can protrude and easily scratch or scrape the gums, tongue, and cheeks. The smooth, clear plastic aligners of Invisalign do not have any sharp edges to catch on the delicate skin of your mouth.
Misaligned or crooked teeth are difficult to clean properly and their position can lead to chipped or cracked teeth. It isn’t necessary to suffer through unattractive or uncomfortable metal braces to get a straight smile. Make your appointment for a consultation with Dr. Ken Cirka at Philadelphia Dentistry to find out if you’re a candidate for Invisalign braces.
