People often fantasize about having that perfect smile, like those actors and actresses we all see on TV. Conventional braces are one way to achieve that perfect straightness, but they require metal brackets and wires that sometimes poke the inside of patients’ cheeks causing irritation and mouth sores.
There are many foods that orthodontists recommend not eating while wearing conventional braces because they can get stuck or break the wires and brackets. Apples, peanuts, taffy, bagels, corn on the cob are examples of foods on the restricted list. And when it comes to brushing and flossing, patients must be prepared to put in more effort than usual because there is always something getting stuck in conventional braces.
Deciding to straighten your teeth is a major choice that influences your appearance, as well as your way of life. As a grown-up, one may wish to enhance their smile for business or social purposes, or for a special event such as a wedding. Or maybe you’re a youngster, or the parent of one, who is searching for an alternative to metal braces. Invisalign and Invisalign Teen can straighten your teeth without putting part of your diet on hold.
Invisalign has many advantages over conventional braces. Invisalign aligners are made from a smooth plastic, so they are virtually invisible when worn. They are also simple to remove for easy cleaning. But the very best thing is that you can still eat whatever you want!
