Your Experience With Invisalign [BLOG]

You deserve to love your smile just like anyone else, no matter how old you are.

That’s why our team at Patrick Stuckey, DDS thinks you should know about the alternatives to traditional orthodontic treatment!

Today, we’re giving some attention to Invisalign , a clear aligner therapy that can straighten crooked teeth faster and more comfortably than standard braces!

Your Experience With Invisalign

Making the decision to get orthodontic treatment is a tough one for adults because at this point, you don’t want to make the same kind of sacrifices for straight teeth that you were willing to as a kid.

So it may be helpful to imagine your orthodontic experience using Invisalign from our Ruston, LA practice rather than traditional metal braces!

*Your Results With Invisalign*

Regular braces are great for straightening crooked teeth, but they’re more appropriate for patients who also have more serious bite alignment issues.

Invisalign is a great alternative for others who have mild alignment problems and minor issues with the position of their teeth.

With this strategy, you change from one customized set of clear, plastic aligners to another over about a twelve month period until your teeth are beautifully straight!

In other words, with Invisalign, you get results!

*Your Level Of Comfort With Invisalign*

Your lips and cheeks may suffer from time to time when you wear standard braces.

That’s due to wires that have sharp edges or how the brackets brush against the inside of your mouth as you get used to them. You can avoid irritation using a special orthodontic wax, but with Invisalign, you don’t have to fool with that.

The aligners are smooth against your delicate cheeks and lips, not to mention the pressure that pulls your teeth into the right position is much gentler with this method, as well, as opposed to tightened wires.

*Your Appearance With Invisalign*

Don’t you think you’ve already paid your dues when it comes to those awkward, pre-teen years?

Then why would you opt to revisit them with a mouth full of metal braces?

You can avoid any changes to your appearance since Invisalign uses clear trays instead of visible brackets and wires bonded to your teeth. Unless you make it known, it’s possible that people around you won’t be able to tell you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment!

*Your Diet & Oral Care Routine With Invisalign*

Eating with brackets and wires in your mouth can be problematic for two reasons.

First, it’s so easy to get all sorts of food stuck in your orthodontia. From bread to lettuce to noodles, you name it. Just about everything you eat will require extra time and effort after meals to clean your teeth.

Second, you’ll have to stay away from certain treats entirely just to keep your brackets and wires safe from damage, like gum, certain candies, and even harder, healthy foods.  

Since you can take your aligners out with Invisalign, you don’t have to change your diet or your brushing and flossing routine!
