Brace Yourself: A Beautiful Smile Sans Metal

Very few of us are lucky enough to be born with a dazzling smile. Proper oral hygiene and dental cosmetics take hard work. You can whiten, you can clean, you can be cavity-free—but you still might have some things to straighten out. No one particularly likes the idea of braces; we associate this heavy-duty orthodontic treatment with discomfort and inconvenience. 

Fortunately, there are other options that exist to get your teeth on track. Invisalign, the most well-known clear aligner brand, offers a solution to many annoyances braces can present us with. Braces don’t only hold your teeth back, they can hold you back from being your most confident self. Are you ready to pull a ditch and switch? We can remove your metal braces and use Invisalign for the final part of your treatment.

Opting for Invisalign for the end of your orthodontic treatment is sort of a no-brainer. The pros that come with this orthodontic option are pretty clear (pun intended).

  1. No more food fights (between you and your teeth). Metal braces restrict you from eating some of your favorite snacks and they hold tight onto food that sneaks between brackets. Gone are the days of missing out on delectable dishes and mouth-watering meals. You no longer have to choose between straightening your teeth or sinking them into something delicious. 
  2. Nearly unnoticeable. Invisalign’s design boasts a clear retainer that is barely visible to others. With invisible aligners, you will no longer have to worry about people noticing your metal braces before they notice you. The design allows patients to feel confident smiling in photo-ops for big events like a wedding, senior pictures, or interviews. You no longer have to keep putting things off until your metal is removed. Stop hiding your smile and feeling uncomfortable during some of the most memorable times of your life by making this simple change.
  3. A clean routine. Since Invisalign retainers are removable, brushing and flossing goes back to basics. You won’t have to worry about any more sticky situations in getting food out of a bracket and a hard place. Cleaning your teeth is no longer a chore and Invisalign is easy to remove and place back in your mouth. Taking out your aligners to brush and floss allows you to take a peek at your progress and eliminate worries of staining or discoloration. Go back to the good old days of your brush, floss, and rinse routine.
