Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign clear aligners provides a solution for people who want a less noticeable path to straight teeth. The obvious benefit of Invisalign clear aligners is the ability to straighten your teeth without people knowing. However, there are other reasons why patients love treatment with Invisalign.
Continue to Eat the Foods You Love
Going through orthodontic treatment doesn’t necessarily mean you have to limit the foods that you enjoy. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners are removable, allowing you the freedom to enjoy all of your favorite foods. Without having any food restrictions, patients can continue to eat hard or sticky foods, such as popcorn or candy.
After you’re done enjoying these treats, you’ll have to give your teeth the thorough cleaning they deserve. The ease of removing your clear aligners makes brushing and flossing a breeze, meaning that your oral care routine is as easy as it was before you started treatment.
Enjoy Fewer Appointments
Thanks to Invisalign’s advanced technology and your orthodontist’s knowledge and skill, all the movement of your teeth from start to finish is programmed into your Invisalign clear aligners. This makes it so patients aren’t required to visit the orthodontic office as often as with traditional braces. It also means that Invisalign treatment can often be completed faster than treatment with braces.
As a bonus, Invisalign patients can enjoy their treatment without a need to worry about emergency appointments due to broken brackets or pokey wire. Because of the ability to remove these aligners, these orthodontic emergencies simply do not happen with Invisalign treatment.
More Comfortable Than Braces
For most patients, Invisalign clear aligners provide a more comfortable treatment compared to braces. Invisalign typically involves more gradual tooth movements than braces which leads to significantly less tooth soreness. Additionally, the absence of brackets and wires means less rubbing and poking on the lips and cheeks.
Getting the Most out of Your Invisalign Treatment
To get the most out of your orthodontic treatment with Invisalign, there are a few things you definitely want to do:
- Wear Your Aligners: For your Invisalign treatment to be a success, you have to wear your aligners consistently. They should be in place for at least twenty-two hours per day – which means all the time except when you’re eating and brushing your teeth. Although this will take some getting used to at first, the results will be well worth it. When aligners are worn regularly, your aligners will fit better, be easier to wear and provide the effective tooth movement you need.
- Take Photos: Taking regular photos of your treatment progress allows you to visibly notice the changes and take pride in the fact that the treatment is working. Invisalign treatment is gradual, and like anything that’s gradual, you may not notice the progress that you’re making. Monitor the changes in your smile, and see the results for yourself.
- Keep Your Teeth and Aligners Clean: Wearing dirty aligners is not fun. Practice a consistent oral care routine, including cleaning your aligners. Invisalign aligners are easy to clean and there are plenty of soaks and rinses available to help you keep them in great condition.
Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is an amazing way to create the healthy smile you deserve. Maximize the enjoyment of your treatment experience by wearing your aligners consistently and monitoring your progress. Share these photos with your friends and family and smile brighter than ever before.
