At our Mississauga and Georgetown offices, we take immense pride in being able to help Canadians all across Ontario. Radically changing smiles with Invisalign is our favorite thing to do!
As you may have heard, it’s this year’s most popular must-have. Over 10 million people have undergone Invisalign treatments and there are plenty of reasons why – let’s explore the 5 benefits of Invisalign for teens, moms, and everyone in-between.
Invisalign Benefit #1 – They’re Pretty Comfortable!
Invisalign is the modern alternative to traditional metal braces, and when you’re a busy mom, you might not have time for the metal alternative.
As you change your aligners your teeth will slowly and comfortably move into the desired position designed by your Orthodontist. Unlike metal braces made with unsightly brackets, Invisalign appliances are made from medical-grade polyurethane resin. They’re (almost) invisible, and quite gentle on the teeth and gums.
Invisalign Benefit #2 – Easily Removed!
Invisalign aligners must be worn 22 hours a day, but, there is some flexibility there. In the days before Invisalign, your only option was traditional braces, which can trap food in the wires and brackets. This can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and unwanted cavities during your treatment. This alone can make Invisalign the better choice.
Invisalign aligners are also removable so you can take them out to eat anywhere – that’s right, even the soccer game! You’ll be able to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would, allowing you to maintain your regular level of oral hygiene consistently and without disruption.
Invisalign Benefit #3 – Designed to be Functional!
Aligners are designed to be removed so you can continue to eat and drink whatever you want, whenever you want. Taking part in sports and similar activities will continue to be a breeze.
Office lunch? Moms meet? No problem. Pop your aligner out and put it in your case until you’re done.
And unlike traditional metal wires, Invisalign aligners have smooth edges. This makes them more comfortable to wear. Unlike brackets, if you find your Invisalign aligner has a rough edge, you don’t need to rush back to your Orthodontist. You can gently file down your aligner using an Emery board and carry on with your treatment comfortably.
Invisalign Benefit #4 – A Straight-Toothed Smile is Good For Your Health!
From teens to adults who have teeth misalignments or bite problems, Invisalign is the key to having a healthy and happy smile. These clear aligners are highly effective in fixing a multitude of dental problems. Invisalign is designed to straighten your teeth and this may help your jaw alignment and sleeping habits. Having straight teeth helps with general oral hygiene by removing spaces in your mouth where plaque and food can get stuck. This will allow you to keep your teeth cleaner and feel more confident in your new smile.
Invisalign Benefit #5 – A Straight-Toothed Smile Will Boost Confidence!
It’s no secret that teens experience the benefits of Invisalign on a psychological level. Smiles that have protruding or crooked teeth are a large issue for many people, including teenagers. Those who are experiencing a lack of self-confidence during adolescence can be more susceptible to poor decision-making and feeling apprehensive about their appearance. By deciding to undergo an Invisalign treatment your teen will feel more confident with each passing day.
