We hope that your Spring is off to a great start and that you have had plenty of reasons to smile. Of course, if your teeth are in a state of disarray, you may not feel much like showing them off no matter how great things are going for you otherwise. That’s why our White Rock/South Surrey, BC general dentist’s office is pleased to be a provider of the Invisalign clear “braces” system. This forward-looking solution allows many adult patients to address their orthodontic issues like crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, in a manner that is efficient and, well, dignified. In today’s blog post, we wanted to explore the advantages of this new approach to orthodontic treatment in British Columbia. Keep reading, and then be sure to schedule your Invisalign consultation with Dr. Rogers!
Invisalign Is Subtle
The Invisalign program aims to straighten out the situation in your mouth through a sequential series of clear, nearly invisible, plastic aligners. As such, your family, friends, coworkers, etc. won’t ever have to know about the construction zone in your mouth. At any rate, there won’t be any metal showing. To keep things moving in the right direction, you will be responsible for switching out your Invisalign aligner trays for the next set in the series. You can do this yourself approximately every two weeks, which saves you a trip for an in-office hardware tune-up.
Invisalign Won’t Disrupt Your Life
Your eating habits won’t have to change since there are no dietary restrictions. You will be able to consume whatever food you want, whenever you want with Invisalign. That’s because your aligners won’t trap food like their metal counterparts. They are designed to be removable. So, you can take a break whenever it makes sense as long as you are still wearing them at least 20 hours of each day. You’d never be able to do that with braces.
For cleaning purposes, there won’t be any special tools necessary. You can just pop out your Invisalign aligners for a quick rinse under warm water. You will still need to accomplish your daily home hygiene tasks so that your mouth stays fresh, healthy, and clean during your Invisalign treatment. But that is not too much to ask, now is it?
Metal braces can be painful to endure. They can cut open the soft tissues of your mouth and induce irritation, sores, and the like for the 2-3 years you are stuck wearing them. But that won’t be your fate. We will make sure that your aligners will fit nice and snug and feel normal in your mouth.
Invisalign Works Fast
Here’s another incredible thing to consider. According to your situation, an Invisalign treatment program can potentially be completed in a matter of months (usually about 12), so you will not have to wait around for years to see results.
