Straighter Teeth, Better Quality of Life, More Smiles: Invisalign

Get straighter teeth with Invisalign

Why You’ll Love Your Invisalign Smile

Invisalign is more than just a clear braces orthodontic system that gives straighter teeth to older teens and adults. The technology and design behind the system have made it one of the most efficient orthodontic solutions for treating the majority of common malocclusions. Additionally, Invisalign has several inherent advantages that can yield powerful, life-changing results.

Here’s how your oral health and overall lifestyle can benefit from Invisalign.

Treatment is ultra discreet in more ways than one.

Pursuing orthodontic care as an adult is an empowering experience, but many people prefer to keep their decision discreet, especially in corporate settings or the public eye. The high demand for Invisalign is largely attributed to the discreet nature of the clear aligners. They don’t noticeably change your appearance or the way you speak. Your orthodontic journey can be your little secret, unless you decide you want to share the news with others.

Another element of Invisalign’s unobtrusive treatment advantages is the minimal impact the clear aligners have on your lifestyle. Since the aligners are removed before meals, you won’t need to change your diet habits or worry about missing culinary experiences because of your orthodontic treatment.

As long as you wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours per day, you’ll maintain excellent progress with your predicted treatment plan. 

Clear aligners are as effective as they are comfortable.

Anyone who wore metal braces in childhood can recall how awkward they felt. It wasn’t always the pressure that was uncomfortable, but rather the feeling of abrasive brackets and pokey wires against the inner lips and cheeks. Invisalign makes it possible to receive orthodontic care with an emphasis on comfort.

Aside from the minor and temporary discomfort when you graduate to a new, tighter set of aligners, Invisalign treatment is a very easy process overall. The aligners are smooth and sit fairly flush with your natural teeth because of the material and contoured shape. Most people grow accustomed to wearing Invisalign rapidly and hardly notice them after a week or two adjustment period. 

Dental care is a breeze, now and in the future.

Invisalign treatment is a valuable oral health investment. It’s also a smart choice when it comes to achieving and maintaining optimal oral health with minimal difficulty.

Caring for your smile during treatment is easy because there aren’t any obstructions to work around. You’ll remove your aligners, floss and brush as usual, and replace them afterward. Best of all, most minimally-invasive forms of restorative or cosmetic dental care can take place easily during your treatment. If you have a cavity that needs filling, or you want to brighten your teeth with a professional whitening session, those can happen without any fuss.

The oral health advantages continue after Invisalign. Straight teeth aren’t automatically healthier teeth, but they will minimize your risks of tooth decay and disease when coupled with excellent dental care habits.

Food debris and plaque are more likely to get stuck in the nooks and crannies of crooked or overlapped teeth. When teeth are straight with properly sized gaps, your floss and toothbrush will be able to clean your teeth and reach just under the edge of the gums much more effectively.

Proper bite alignment eases strain and bruxism.

A bad bite (malocclusion) impacts more than your smile’s appearance. Poor bite alignment strains your jaw, specifically the temporomandibular joint or TMJ. It can lead to pain and limited mobility in the jaw, and the discomfort can expand to chronic headaches and neck pain

Malocclusion can also trigger or exacerbate bruxism, a behavior characterized by grinding, gnashing, and clenching of the teeth. Bruxing can create uneven wear on the teeth and eventually cause chips or cracks. Severe bruxism with extreme force may even cause a weakened tooth to break.

Invisalign guides teeth into a healthy alignment based on your unique facial and jaw anatomy. You won’t have teeth rubbing against one another abnormally or experience strain on your TMJ. Although you may need additional therapeutic care to fully recover from severe TMJ or bruxism behavior, straightening and realigning your teeth with Invisalign is a crucial first step.

Self-confidence soars, and so do the opportunities.

Your smile isn’t the only thing that transforms with Invisalign treatment; so does your self-confidence and the presence you display around others.

Many malocclusions can inhibit your self-confidence to a surprising extent. Crooked, uneven teeth or an overbite can make it difficult to chew food easily or speak in a way that flows naturally. You could even be subconsciously smiling or talking in a way that hides your teeth, which could give the impression of timidness or apathy.

Before your Invisalign treatment is even complete, you’ll start to notice an increase in your self-confidence. You’ll no longer feel like you have to hide your teeth when you smile, laugh, and interact with others. This inner confidence transfers to your body language. It can completely change how assured, welcoming, and trustworthy you appear in meetings with colleagues or when interviewing for a new job or casting role.
