We want you to love your braces. But we comprehend why you might prefer the less visible version over the metal wires and brackets–we all have enough things in life to worry about without adding braces into the mix! That’s why we’re certified Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® providers.
Love and orthodontics don’t always go hand in hand. When you’re wearing Invisalign, however, you will adore how beautifully and surreptitiously your teeth are moving into alignment. And you won’t be shy about showing your love to others.
While the Benefits of a Straight, Healthy Smile Are Endless, Here Are Just Top Eight Reasons You Can Fall in Love with Invisalign.
#1 Clear – The Aligners Are Practically Invisible.
Who doesn’t love an opportunity to improve their smile without anyone noticing? Invisalign allows you to go about your life – professionally and personally – without drawing attention to your orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is a great option for adults and teens alike who don’t want their braces to be as visible. Show your teeth off with confidence during your treatment, knowing all along that you have a beautiful smile just weeks away!
#2 Removable – Clean Your Teeth Easily.
With Invisalign, you’ll wear a set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, and floss. While it is essential to wear Invisalign for 20 to 22 hours a day, you can of course remove the aligners to clean them. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little until they have reached the final position your doctor has prescribed. Since they’re removable, that means you can eat and drink whatever you want! No worrying about breaking a bracket or losing a rubber band. Care, brushing, and flossing are also a lot easier to navigate. No special tools are required to get between brackets and wires like is needed for metal braces.
Invisalign aligners are comfortable and durable, so they fit in with your extracurricular activities. Whether you’re tossing the football around or playing the clarinet with the school band, you won’t have to worry about your braces getting in the way! Even better, no metal and wires means you’ll spend less time in the doctor’s office with adjustments or even orthodontic emergencies.
Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology that is proven effective. You’ll visit Fordham Dental Office, Bronx about once every six weeks to make sure the transition is going smoothly. Treatments typically last around nine to 15 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment can range from 18 to 30, depending on your specific case. You can also view your own virtual treatment plan from the start to keep track of your progress. And, as a unique feature for teens, Invisalign clear aligners contain compliance indicators that fade from blue to clear to help gauge wear time.
#5 Eat Whatever You Like
Craving chewy pizza crust? Want to enjoy that cob of corn? Just can’t say no to taffy at the beach? You don’t have to turn down any foods when you wear Invisalign. Pop out your aligners and dig into the tastes that are calling you.
#6 Boost Your Confidence
Who doesn’t love having a little secret that makes you feel better about yourself? When your teeth begin to straighten out thanks to Invisalign, you will smile more and be far less self-conscious about your teeth. Invisalign is practically invisible so you can go about your day at work, school, or home feeling supremely confident in yourself and your appearance.
#7 Avoid Constant Irritation
Orthodontic treatment isn’t working if it doesn’t create some discomfort in your mouth. However, with Invisalign you get used to the feeling of slight pressure as you change to each new set of aligners. With metal braces, you continually endure jabs and pokes from brackets and wires. Your gums, lips, and cheeks can suffer greatly from broken hardware.
#8 You Could Lose Weight
While Invisalign isn’t necessarily a recommended weight loss method, you may discover that you make better choices about snacking when you have your aligners to consider. Losing a few pounds could be a delightful side effect of wearing Invisalign.
#9 Break Bad Habits
You may not consider your ongoing cup of coffee or love of soda to be a bad habit. However, you do your teeth no favors, and put them at risk of developing tooth decay, by sipping on anything throughout the day (unless it’s water). Since Invisalign can be easily stained by food and drink, you can’t ingest anything but water while wearing the aligners.
#10 See Your Dentist Less Often
No matter how much you adore your dentist, the less time you have to spend in the dentist’s chair the better, right? Unlike traditional metal braces which typically require monthly dental visits for tightening and repairs and check-ups, Invisalign appointments are only about every six weeks. Make an appointment with Dr. Nishita Gandhi’s Dental Office 2 convenient locations in Fordham Road & Morris Ave. Bronx, NY to find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.
