Invisalign patients are well aware of the benefits of this discreet and efficient method for aligning teeth. However, if you’re on the fence about the best way to improve your smile and wonder whether Invisalign is right for you, in honor of Valentine’s Day, here are just 14 things that will make you fall in love with this innovative alignment method.
1. Invisible aligners
Invisalign aligners are clear – in fact, they’re almost invisible. Braces that get the hard work done without drawing attention to themselves? What’s not to love?
2. Sleek and slim trays
Invisalign trays are not bulky and do not demand the kind of attention and space in the mouth like brackets and wires of conventional braces. They fit snugly, are smooth, and get the job done while staying out of your way.
3. Immediate gratification
After a few weeks of wearing Invisalign, you’ll notice that your teeth are already starting to shift into alignment. Talk about motivation.
4. Weight loss
Not everyone experiences the loss of a few pounds with Invisalign, but some do. That soda-sipping habit, that mindless snacking – it all must come to a halt with Invisalign in your mouth. And that means fewer calories every day.
5. Eating freedom
Invisalign will make you more mindful about your food choices, but it certainly doesn’t limit the foods you can enjoy. Because the trays are removed for all meals and snacks, you have zero food restrictions so you can dig into all the chewy and crunchy stuff you love as long as the trays are safely housed in their case.
6. Improved confidence
If you’ve long been self-conscious about your misaligned or crooked smile, the speed with which Invisalign straightens things out will improve your confidence, and that’s good for just about every part of your life.
7. Super selfies
Want to look better in photos? You know those filters can rarely do anything to improve your teeth – but Invisalign certainly can spruce them up for great pictures from here on out.
8. Super smiles
If you’ve been hiding your teeth when you smile because you’re embarrassed about how they look, Invisalign will make you feel better about yourself, little by little, day by day.
9. Easy routine
Braces demand upkeep, but Invisalign maintenance is minimal. Just clean your aligners every day at the same time you brush your teeth using the cleaner recommended by your orthodontist. No special tools are needed to navigate among brackets and wires.
Invisalign takes, on average, about one year to complete the full treatment. This is about half the time of traditional braces, and some patients may need even less time to complete their course of Invisalign.
11. Healthier smile
Many people choose Invisalign for cosmetic reasons – they want a better-looking smile. What they quickly come to discover is that straight teeth mean healthier teeth that are easier to clean and keep free from bacteria and decay.
12. Social freedom
Dating? Socializing? Hitting the gym? Whatever you’re doing with your time, Invisalign will not get in the way. In fact, no one ever needs to know you’re wearing the trays unless you tell them.
13. Fewer check-ups
Far fewer visits to your Woodinville Invisalign provider are necessary than if you wear conventional braces. All you need is a check-up every six weeks or so and to pick up your next sets of trays.
Maybe you didn’t have braces as a teen, maybe you did and your teeth have shifted back into misalignment, maybe you have other oral health problems that necessitate the straightening of your teeth. Invisalign is possible for just about anyone. Find out if you’re a good candidate today! Schedule a consultation with Dr. Soleil Roberts, Woodinville orthodontist.
