3 Things You Should Know About Life with Invisalign®

When you have to straighten crooked teeth, there are countless reasons to not ignore that need. Fortunately, Invisalign® clear aligners help make the process much simpler, more discreet, and more comfortable to make addressing crooked teeth more attractive for patients. At our Newhall, CA, dentist’s office, we utilize advanced digital impression making to create highly precise clear aligners, ensuring every Invisalign® patient enjoys optimal results. This high level of personalization also makes living with Invisalign® clear aligners significantly more convenient compared to traditional orthodontic braces.

No one will notice your aligners

Invisalign® clear aligners are made from nearly invisible, BPA-free acrylic, making them almost completely undetectable when placed over your teeth. Their discretion is one of the most notable benefits of the aligners, especially for older teen and adult patients who wish to avoid the cosmetic effects of traditional metal braces. In addition to the clear acrylic that they’re made from, the aligners are made even more discreet by the fact they’re designed to conform precisely to your upper and lower teeth. As you speak and smile throughout the day, your aligners will remain firmly in place, so they won’t move and give away their presence.

No drastic changes to your diet

The appearance of metal braces isn’t always a deterrent to orthodontic treatment. However, aside from how they look, braces can also impact everyday things like what you’re able to eat. Because traditional brackets are bonded to your teeth, the brackets and wires can make it difficult to eat certain foods without damaging your braces or risking food particles sticking between them. By contrast, Invisalign® aligners can be temporarily removed before you eat to avoid any complications. You won’t have to change your diet for fear of your favorite foods interfering with your treatment.

No extra tools needed to clean your teeth

Avoiding certain foods during traditional orthodontic treatment is one way to avoid harmful food particles and oral bacteria that could lead to issues like tooth decay and gum disease. This also takes properly cleaning your teeth and braces, which often requires additional hygiene tools such as interdental cleaners to clean between brackets, wires, and teeth. With Invisalign®, however, you can remove your aligners before brushing and flossing your teeth with your regular toothbrush and floss. As long as you stick to a strict schedule of brushing and flossing your teeth every day and visiting your dentist regularly, your orthodontic treatment won’t raise your risks of developing a chronic dental health issue.
