Most people believe that the only period you can have your teeth straightened is during your childhood, which is not the case. Adults can also have braces to straighten their teeth too. However, instead of wearing the traditional metal braces, adults can turn to Invisalign® braces in Fort Walton Beach. Not only are they custom made to enhance and fit your distinctive smile for beautiful results, they are also transparent and thin. Here are the benefits of clear adult braces.
No food restrictions
Invisalign® aligners can be removed during meals. That means you can still enjoy a piece of candy or popcorn as well as other foods that are usually forbidden when it comes conventional orthodontics. You should, however, make sure that you clean your teeth using a toothbrush immediately after consuming anything that is acidic, starchy or sugary.
If you require straightening of your teeth but are concerned about the noticeable look of traditional metal wires and brackets, then worry no more because Invisalign® aligners are there for you. They are made of clear, thin plastic and are designed to fit discreetly over your teeth. Unless you tell them, your family, friends, and colleagues won’t even know that you are using Invisalign®.
Invisalign® braces are comfortable to wear since you do not have brackets and wires irritating your gums and pressing against your teeth.
Shorter treatment periods
Your teeth are straightened in a shorter period with adult braces than traditional ones. Traditional braces take up to 5 years while Invisalign® only takes twelve to eighteen months to straighten the teeth. This is perfect for you, especially if you want to achieve quicker results just before a significant event such as a wedding.
Easy to clean
The only tools that you need to clean your Invisalign® are a toothbrush and toothpaste. You have to clean it gently though and rinse with warm water afterward. And just like that, you have your aligners in perfect condition in a few minutes.
Since Invisalign® is made of plastic, there is no way you will get hurt if you get knocked over. This is important, especially for adults who have active lifestyles. You do not have to worry about a breakage to your aligner or damage to your mouth if you accidentally bump into another player during sports.
Fewer dental trips
When wearing invisible braces, you do not have to worry about dental appointments and visits especially if you have a busy schedule. There are fewer visits required overall and they’re only needed roughly after every six weeks.
