Orthodontic treatment can be seen as a rite of passage for kids and teens, but there are adults who may need to correct misalignment that are too embarrassed to receive braces. They can be seen as inconvenient and a hindrance on both their personal and professional life. But with the help of Grady Dental Care, we can provide patients with Invisalign, a popular solution for all ages!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a way to straighten your teeth without the use of braces. Instead, patients wear clear aligners that are removable, virtually invisible, and efficient! They’re custom-made to fit your teeth so there is no discomfort or irritation, you can eat whatever you’d like, and your treatment plan will be drastically improved!
Why Choose Invisalign Over Braces?
While both Invisalign and traditional braces work the same way, these clear aligners provide several social and personal benefits for patients who want to correct their smile. With regular braces, patients may feel moments of pain and discomfort, struggle eating certain foods that they were able to eat before, and consistent upkeep. On the other hand, Invisalign allows patients to eat whatever foods you’d like because you have to remove them to eat, straightens your teeth without anyone noticing, and requests minimal changes to your daily routine.
What Else can Invisalign do for Me?
Invisalign makes it easier to clean, brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis. The aligners are worn throughout the day and night except for when you eat your meals and when you brush your teeth. The aligners are easily removable and can be taken off and put back in place in no time! You don’t have to worry about struggling to clean around brackets and wires like you would with traditional braces.
This treatment can also help better your diet—since you’re only to remove the aligners during your main meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner), it will remove the urge to snack throughout the day, so you can avoid chips, candies and chocolates. Not only will your teeth be thanking you, but so will the rest of your body!
