If you’ve been thinking about getting orthodontic treatment, Invisalign may be at the top of your list when it comes to treatment options. Invisalign from Dr. James Martin of LIFE Dentistry has a number of fantastic benefits.
Treatment times are fast, Invisalign is nearly invisible, and the price is about the same as treatment with traditional braces. However, if you’re still not sure that you’re ready to pull the trigger on Invisalign, here are a few signs that it might be right for you!
1. You’re an Athlete Who Enjoys Contact Sports
Invisalign is a great choice for any athlete. This is because, unlike braces, Invisalign can be removed. Braces can pose a serious problem for athletes who play sports like soccer, football, hockey, lacrosse, or any other sport where they may be hit by the ball, a stick, a racket, or another player.
This is because the metal used in braces can poke and scratch the inside of the mouth, even with a store-bought mouthguard. In addition, a serious impact to the mouth can be very painful if the braces have been adjusted recently.
Invisalign can be removed before the game, ensuring you can comfortably use a custom mouthguard and protect yourself from damage while playing your favorite sports.
2. You’re “too old” for Braces
People of any age can get braces, but they are the most effective during adolescent years when the mouth and body are still developing. In addition, there is an unfortunate stigma attached to adult with braces, especially in the world of white-collar business.
Invisalign offers a great alternative. Because the aligners are transparent and do not affect speech, they can be worn anywhere, at any time. In addition, Invisalign is equally effective for most patients at any stage of development.
3. You’ve Got an Important Life Event Coming Up
Graduation, a wedding, a big life-changing event may be a good reason to get Invisalign, especially if you know that photos will be taken at the event and that you’ll look at them for years afterward.
Weddings are a particularly great opportunity to correct your smile. Because Invisalign only takes about a year, you can easily get the treatment you want after your engagement, and have a beautiful, picture-perfect smile by the time your special day rolls around!
4. You’re Worried Braces Might Affect Your Oral Health
Braces can make oral hygiene difficult. Flossing around braces is difficult, and even brushing may be somewhat painful after the braces have been tightened. Some patients can even have issues like inflamed gums during treatment with traditional metal braces.
Invisalign can be removed for both brushing and flossing, so you can keep your mouth healthy throughout the entire treatment process.
