What is all the hype over Invisalign? This modern system of “invisible” braces could be just what you’re looking for to improve your smile without the old method of metal braces. Nobody every really liked those anyway.
We are thrilled to offer Invisalign Orthodontics to our adult and teen patients. Dr. Wilhite personally assesses each case to determine how Invisalign can assist them. When you come in for a consultation, you will learn why we love to help others benefit from what this advanced system has to offer.
INVISALIGN is a series of clear, removable trays that are replaced on a regular schedule. Each time they are changed, the teeth are moved into a desirable position. These corrective trays may be taken out for eating or public speaking.
Some important tips why Invisalign can change the way you feel about corrective braces:
1. Eat The Foods You Love
With regular braces, you cannot enjoy all the foods you would normally be able to. The brackets and wires can easily be damaged by certain types of food, such as snacks that are too firm or sticky. With Invisalign, you don’t need to be concerned with avoiding these foods, because your tooth-straightening appliance is removable.
With Invisalign, you don’t need to be concerned with avoiding these foods, because your tooth-straightening appliance is removable.
- Sugar-Free Gum
- Whole Wheat Bagel
- Healthy Nuts
- Crunchy Carrots
- And other smile-friendly options that braces cannot handle!
2. You Can Improve Oral Hygiene Now
The best oral hygiene during your orthodontic treatment is strongly encouraged. It’s easier than ever with Invisalign. It is very important to clean teeth and aligners regularly, making sure to rinse after snacks and meals during the day, before putting aligners back in. This habit will prevent harmful bacteria and acids from collecting over the teeth throughout the day.
It’s very difficult to maintain clean teeth while wearing braces. Normally, you would need to use special floss and electric toothbrushes to complete the job. All you would need to do is brush your teeth like normal.
The trays used with Invisalign don’t require any special cleaning around wires, as with conventional wire braces.
3. Get A Healthy Smile Later On
Crooked teeth trap more bacteria, are harder to keep clean than straight teeth and tooth decay is more likely to develop. Gum disease can be avoided as well. Straight teeth aren’t just for looks – they also help create a healthier smile.
4. Boost Your Confidence
If you adored your smile, you would most likely smile more? Yes!
A surprising effect of straight teeth is an improvement in the way you feel about yourself. You will be able to smile in front of a camera without holding back. A smile makeover that will impress can be achieved by adding a whitening procedure to your Invisalign treatment.
5. Make A Great First Impression
If your smile shows up frequently, people are quick to judge others based on their teeth. Good maintenance tells others that you take pride in your appearance and that you are a more confident, friendly person to be around.
A bright, clean and straight set of teeth shows that you care about your personal appearance and health. These factors can play a major role when applying for a new job or making the acquaintance of a potential significant other. Your best accessory is your smile. It’s worth investing a little time into and your smile is something you will wear forever.
