Going Wireless With Invisalign
Dr. Lowe has been practicing his special brand of cosmetic dental artistry for over 30 years. He’s seen many technologies come and go from the spotlight during that time. Certainly, one of the most welcome additions to the ever-evolving landscape of cosmetic dentistry is Invisalign.
Traditional braces were never the ideal solution to correcting misaligned teeth. So for today’s orthodontic patients, it is a huge bonus to have an alternative solution like Invisalign.
Love Your Smile During Invisalign Treatment
One of the least enjoyable aspects of orthodontic braces is the brackets and wires. Unwound wires can cause discomfort and even cuts. Plus, you’re stuck with that aesthetic and inconvenience until the treatment is complete.
Straightening your smile with Invisalign gives you options, none of which involve wires! While you should keep Invisalign in for 22 hours a day for the best results, being able to remove the tray entirely is a gamechanger. While your new smile is under construction, you can still show it off any time you’d prefer to go trayless.
Freedom to be Fully Active With Invisalign
Braces can be a nightmare if you like to participate in sports, particularly contact sports. If any forceful impact is anticipated, then the activity should be avoided altogether with braces.
Braces prohibit you from wearing the mouthguard which protects your teeth from severe damage during contact sports. Consequently, any impact will be doubly severe with a mouth full of unprotected metal, not just to the person wearing braces, but to the person colliding with them!
Because you can remove the Invisalign trays, you can also freely participate in all the contact sports you like! This means that you can wear your custom mouthguard, keeping your smile safe while you play.
If you do participate in contact sports, but don’t have a custom mouthguard yet, then we recommend checking out our blog “Why Mouthguards Are Essential for Athletes”.
With Invisalign, Save Time and Eat What You Like!
Generally, optimal dental health calls for less sticky, sugary, and starchy foods because they are tough to remove and not very healthy. And with 32 teeth worth of metal brackets and wires, these foods become exponentially harder to remove. Consequently, post-meal cleaning with braces can take two or three times longer than regular cleaning.
Invisalign allows you to enjoy meals without the hassle. You can remove the easy-to-clean trays, enjoy your food, and replace the cleaned trays after brushing and flossing.
At The Lowe Centre for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, we encourage our patients to practice thorough home care. Our blog ‘The Five Worst Foods for Your Smile’ will help you make better food choices for your teeth!
Brushing and Flossing is Easy with Invisalign
Even the most devoted brushers and flossers can hit a wall when it comes to keeping their teeth clean with braces. Braces make the basics of dental hygiene difficult and frustrating.
Not so with Invisalign! Being able to remove your sophisticated orthodontic solution is a revolution in comfort and convenience.
The removable trays are just that, removable. So whenever you need to eat, you can take out your Invisalign trays and enjoy your meal to the fullest. And brushing and flossing are no different from life without orthodontics. Simply replace your Invisalign when you’re done.
