For those who are the right candidates for Invisalign, we’d like to go over our top reasons why this method can be more convenient and just as effective as braces. At Bedford Dental Group we understand that it’s not always desirable to have your mouth full of brackets and wires, which can poke and irritate the mouth. Metal braces will often come with several strings attached. Sure, Invisalign requires its own unique set of instructions to maximize the efficacy of your oral transition. But here are a few reasons why Invisalign is an excellent choice for the right candidates. We’ll start with the obvious reason:
Invisalign Is Virtually Invisible
I mean, if somebody is shamelessly encroaching upon your bubble, yeah, maybe they’ll notice that you have your Invisalign tray in. But do you really want people in your life like that, anyway? Well, regardless of your answer, braces tend to be cumbersome and highly noticeable, though they are certainly far cries from the bear-trap-like hardware from the old days.
No Food Restrictions!
Of course, it’s generally a good idea to avoid chewing on hard candy and limiting your intake of food and beverages for the sake of your teeth, so that rule or guideline is still germane here. But you don’t have to worry about the consequences of eating nuts, pretzels or sticky foods. You don’t have to go on a hardcore mashed potato and banana diet to appease your oral health. Feel free to bite into harder foods that you normally couldn’t with braces.
There’s No Intricate Brushing Procedure to Worry About
You can take your trays out and brush as you normally would. Though we still think waterpicks are great, it’s not completely necessary to the Invisalign process. You don’t have to worry about working around the nooks and crannies of your braces.
We could go on, but we don’t want to take up too much of your valuable time. If you think that Invisalign is the right choice for you, then we’d be happy to go over your options and help you devise a plan for your beautiful smile. It’s more achievable than you think.
