Everyone wants a beautiful smile they can showcase to the world. For some, the idea of having a mouthful of braces is even worse than the idea of crooked teeth. If this sounds like you, you might be a good candidate for Invisible Braces. Dr. Elizabeth Haynes is a highly esteemed orthodontist who is prepared help you reach your full potential.
Here are some reasons why others have opted for invisible braces over the traditional path:
1. AS EFFECTIVE AS TRADITIONAL BRACES
Invisible Braces are a great option because they are as effective as traditional braces, without the metal in your mouth. Underbites, overbites, overcrowding, and gaps between teeth are all things that can be addressed when using Invisible braces. You will be fitted for several versions of retainers that make slight adjustments to move your teeth over the treatment time.
2. YOU DON’T HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR EATING HABITS
We all know that traditional braces come with a wide array of food restrictions. Luckily, Invisalign is removable so you do not have to bid adieu to your favorite foods. Do you like candy? Popcorn? Raw carrots? Just pop your invisible braces off and enjoy.
3. DECREASE SELF CONSCIOUSNESS
The idea of walking around with metal braces can be anxiety inducing for some, especially adults who work in a professional setting. Some fear that their braces are unsightly, or make them look young. Invisible Braces are so discreet that no one will even know you have them in.
4. YOUR DENTAL HYGIENIST WILL APPRECIATE IT
Invisible Braces make brushing and flossing a breeze. This helps maintain proper oral hygiene. When teeth are cooked or cluttered they are harder to clean giving bacteria a playground in your mouth. Once your teeth have moved the instruments the hygienist uses are more effective. You may spend less time in the dentist chair getting your teeth cleaned.
5. CAN BE USED AS PROTECTIVE GEAR AND MOUTH GUARD REPLACEMENT
Wearing them while at or participating in sporting activities can give your teeth more protection. Using Invisalign as a protection for the teeth when doing Things Mountain biking playing group sports gives you an added layer of security. You can use your retainer as a mouth guard protecting your teeth from grinding while you sleep. Along with this you can also use your retainers to whiten your teeth.
