It’s true that metal braces are commonly used to straighten teeth and resolve uneven bites, however, many people don’t want to use them. Braces require you to change your daily habits, such as your diet and your oral care. They often tend to be associated with teenagers as well, which could be detrimental to your image as a working professional. With Invisalign, there’s no need to make sacrifices to your day-to-day habits or appearance. To learn how, call our office and we’ll go over the process in more detail!
If you are an older teen or adult, chances are Invisalign is right for your needs. However, it is not recommended for younger patients whose smiles are still developing. If you are a teenager or someone who is working professionally, especially with customers directly, and you have mild to moderate levels of misalignment, crowding, or an uneven bite, you can likely benefit from Invisalign. We’ll be able to better confirm if Invisalign is right for you during your in-person consultation.
Choosing Invisalign over traditional methods means you don’t make nearly as many compromises along the way. For one, clear aligners are designed to be removed so you can eat and perform brushing and flossing. That means there’s no need to buy new tools or relearn your oral care to meet the accommodations of metal brackets and wires. You’ll also be able to eat your favorite foods without worry of them getting stuck inside your oral appliance.
