Can you imagine walking into work with a new set of metal braces on your teeth? Many people would find themselves worrying more about the reaction of their coworkers than the task at hand. Unfortunately, we live in a society that finds it strange when adults choose to straighten their teeth with metal braces. Thankfully, however, there is a solution that can straighten your teeth without lowering your self-confidence: Invisalign. Read below as your Los Angeles CA orthodontist, Dr. David Alpan, shares four benefits of Invisalign.
Perks of Invisalign
- Improved self-confidence. All types of braces can improve self-esteem in the long run by straightening teeth and closing gaps. However, patients sometimes feel a dip in self-confidence when they receive metal braces, owing to a feeling of self-consciousness about the wires and brackets. With Invisalign, though, patients can experience improved self-confidence from day one. The aligners are clear, and patients can smile widely with the knowledge that each day their smiles will be getting more and more beautiful.
- Easy homecare. One of the major perks of straightening your teeth with Invisalign is the removability of the aligners. Because the aligners can come out of the mouth, homecare is no different than it was before wearing Invisalign. Simply remove the aligner and brush and floss as normal.
- Fewer dental visits. Invisalign features a series of clear aligners, each with an alignment closer to the end goal. Patients progress to new aligners about every two weeks, and dental visits are at a minimum because the patients do not have to attend dental visits to have their braces adjusted.
- An expanded menu. When wearing metal braces, patients must avoid certain foods. However, because Invisalign’s aligners can be removed, patients can eat a wider variety of food without worrying about getting it caught in their braces.
