How to Know If Invisalign is Right for You
- Posted on: Sep 15 2015
If you’re an adult but need some sort of teeth straightening like braces, but are frightened of being THAT adult wearing metal braces, then it’s time to consider Invisalign. By using custom-made aligners, or trays, you can get straight teeth without having tot worry about the inconvenience of metal brackets. Each aligner is designed to adjust your teeth a little bit every few weeks, but you won’t likely notice the difference. Every two weeks you will switch out your aligner for a new one and will continue that process until you have straight teeth.
You Are An Adults or Teen
Invisalign is designed for adults and teens whose jaws have grown to capacity, and is not suitable for children who are under a certain age. If you are an adult or teenager who is concerned about your appearance when it comes to metal braces, then Invisalign is the right tool for you. With each tray fitting tightly over your teeth, your friends, family, and coworkers won’t even be able to tell that you’re wearing anything at all.
You Enjoy Eating Without Inconvenience
Unlike traditional metal braces where you have to avoid foods such as corn on the cob, gum, or popcorn, with invisalign you can eat whatever you want. Simply take out your aligner during each meal and rinse it off before putting it back in your mouth. Also, be sure to dental floss your teeth before you put the trays back in because trapped food can cause cavities and tooth decay.
You Want a Straight Smile Fast
Because you switch out your aligners every two weeks, the invisalign process is a fairly quick and straightforward procedure. Unlike traditional braces that require you to go into your orthodontist every month or two to tighten, these trays are quick, easy, and pain free— giving you fast results in virtually no time at all!
If you’re considering getting Invisalign but aren’t sure if it’s right for you, go through the above checklist and see if you answer “yes” to any of them.
