Getting a straighter smile with traditional metal braces comes at the price of some of your day-to-day freedoms. You’ll need to restrict your diet, spend more time on brushing and flossing your teeth and deal with having a mouth full of metal. Thankfully, not all orthodontic treatments come with the proverbial ball and chain of metal wires and brackets! With Invisalign, you can feel free to enjoy your life to the fullest while straightening your smile. Here are five unique freedoms you can expect to enjoy with Invisalign that you simply can’t get with metal braces.
1.) Eat & Drink Whatever You Want
Thanks to the removable nature of Invisalign aligners, you don’t have to give up any of your favorite foods or drinks during your treatment. All you have to do is take your aligners out before you eat or drink anything besides water, then give your teeth a quick brush before popping them back in. As long as your aligners don’t come in contact with any foods or beverages (other than water), you won’t need to alter your daily diet at all.
2.) Straighten Your Teeth Comfortably
The metal wires and brackets of traditional braces are notorious for rasping painfully against the tongue and the inside of the lips and cheeks. With Invisalign, you won’t have to worry about this at all. Since these clear aligners are made of smooth, biocompatible plastic, they should glide effortlessly past your soft tissues. Instead of investing in orthodontic wax to protect your mouth, you can enjoy a much more comfortable straightening experience with Invisalign.
3.) Keep Brushing & Flossing Easily
Invisalign aligners makes it much easier to maintain great oral hygiene during treatment than traditional braces. Just remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would every morning and evening. Then, rinse your aligners off or clean them with a specialized Invisalign cleaning system or solution.
4.) Enjoy All Your Favorite Activities without Worry
Metal braces can get in the way of enjoying some of your favorite hobbies and activities. On the other hand, Invisalign aligners are designed to blend in with your busy lifestyle so you can keep living your life to the fullest! Once you remove your aligners, you should have no problem playing your brass or woodwind instrument, participating in sports like football or basketball or enjoying any other activity where traditional braces would typically get in the way.
5.) Feel Free to Smile Confidently
While it’s undoubtedly true that metal braces are a reliably effective means of treating nearly any orthodontic issue, the mouthful of metal can take a toll on your confidence. With Invisalign clear aligners, you can achieve a healthy, beautiful smile without sacrificing your appearance in the meantime. You’ll be free to smile confidently all throughout your treatment knowing that your practically invisible aligners aren’t distracting from your pearly whites.
Invisalign doesn’t require you to give up your freedoms to get the straightened smile you deserve. Give your dentist a call today to see if this unique orthodontic treatment is right for you!
