If You Are an Adult Who Is Considering Braces, Find out What Invisalign Can Offer You.
Chances are good that you’ve heard of Invisalign. After all, many patients are thrilled by the prospect that they could achieve a straighter smile with a clear treatment option that is far more discreet than traditional braces. Of course, our Newport News, VA, dentist Dr. Mark Artzer believes it’s important to understand what Invisalign can offer you so that you can determine if it truly is the best way to get a straighter smile.
Here are just some of the top benefits of getting Invisalign from our Newport News office:
Instead of getting brackets bonded to the front of your teeth, with Invisalign you’ll receive a set of clear aligners. These aligners fit over your teeth like a mouthguard and are made from medical-grade transparent plastic. This clear material makes it far less likely that people will notice your braces while you are wearing them.
It’s comforting to know that, when necessary, you can take your aligners off. Whether you are having a major job interview, a date, or any formal occasion, having the luxury to pop your aligners out right beforehand can be a relief. Of course, you should still wear your aligners as much as possible. Aside from times devoted to eating, brushing, and flossing, you should always have your aligners in. Aim to wear them 22 hours out of the day — however, if an important event arises, having the option to remove your braces is quite convenient.
Eat What You Love
With traditional braces, you won't be able to eat foods such as apples and carrots because they could damage the brackets or wires. However, since your Invisalign aligners are removable, you don’t have to worry about certain foods or drinks affecting your orthodontic treatment. Simply remove the aligners prior to eating or drinking (you can still wear your aligners while drinking water) and eat anything you want without restriction. Just remember to brush your teeth and rinse your aligners before putting them back in.
