Are straight teeth on your holiday wish list? They should be, especially if you’re dealing with any discomfort or self-consciousness about the appearance of your teeth. Wish upon a star, a Santa, a candle, or whatever you think gives you the best chance of getting straight teeth, as long as the solution involves Invisalign.
Here are just some of the reasons to add Invisalign to your holiday wish list:
1. They’re discreet.
You want straight teeth. You don’t want a metal mouth. Invisalign to the rescue! There is no other orthodontic solution that delivers a perfectly aligned smile under the radar like Invisalign.
If you’re not a good candidate for Invisalign, do not despair. You can still get straight teeth without drawing too much attention to the hardware in your mouth. Ceramic and clear braces are both options that get your crooked or crowded teeth into alignment
2. They’re for adults and teens.
Invisalign is customized to every patient, and it’s an excellent choice for busy adults and teens. The Invisalign Teen version of this orthodontic treatment is tweaked to include wear indicators that show your Woodinville orthodontist that the aligners are being worn as often as they’re supposed to be. Invisalign Teen is also unique because it is designed to make room for teeth that have yet to erupt, a characteristic common to many adolescents.
Anyone who is worried about drawing attention to themselves unnecessarily, or who wants to straighten their smile without a lot of fuss – adult or teen – will be delighted to discover that Invisalign is an excellent option.
3. They eliminate pain.
Sometimes, patients pursue orthodontic treatment because they’re dealing with discomfort more so than misalignment. They have a TMJ problem, or a jaw that is out of whack. Invisalign and all types of braces are designed to correct flaws like these, moving the bone into its proper place so teeth grinding and clenching is reduced and, ideally, eliminated, as well as complications with the TMJ or bite.
4. They give you healthier teeth.
It’s simple: Straight teeth are easier to clean, therefore straight teeth are healthier teeth. Of course, the important element that must fall into place in between is that you take the time to care for your teeth and gums carefully with daily brushing and flossing and visiting your family dentist twice a year for professional teeth-cleanings and check-ups.
All those pesky spots where food gets stuck? Those open contacts between a few of your molars? Invisalign closes it all up and shifts it all into alignment so food particles and plaque don’t have the opportunity to set up shop for long.
5. They’re low-maintenance.
Invisalign is a responsibility and it’s necessary to commit to this orthodontic treatment and wear and clean the aligners as instructed. However, compared to conventional metal braces, Invisalign is relatively low-maintenance, especially when it comes to eating. You remove the nearly invisible aligners for every meal and snack – so that means no food restrictions, and all you have to do is clean your teeth and aligners before putting Invisalign back in place. Easy peasy.
