Straight teeth are important for more than just a confident smile, they are also vital to promoting your oral health. When they are properly aligned, they are easier to clean, reducing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. To make an investment in your self-esteem and dental health, you are ready for Invisalign in Colorado Springs. As a discreet and sophisticate treatment, the clear aligners have quickly become the preferred orthodontic system. To make the most of your journey to a straight smile, there are some additional facts about life with the aligners that you should know about.
1. You can whiten your teeth while using Invisalign.
When aligning your teeth, you look forward to a beautiful smile. You do not want tooth discoloration to dull your results. You can reserve stains while using Invisalign because the aligners are removable. With a professional whitening treatment, your teeth will become several shades whiter to help you achieve the smile that you have always wanted.
2. There is an Invisalign diet.
Many patients have come to prefer Invisalign because there are less restrictions than that of traditional braces. Since the aligners are removable, you can still eat or drink anything that you like; however, you should never have anything except water while wearing them. In fact, it is encouraged that you drink plenty of water to cleanse the mouth to help prevent staining.
3. Cleaning your teeth will take a little longer.
Living with Invisalign is far easier than that of traditional braces, especially when it comes to caring for your teeth and gums. You will not have any brackets or wires to brush of floss around but be prepared to spend a little extra time caring for your smile. You will need to clean the aligners every day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and clear antibacterial soap. This helps to remove bacteria accumulations to protect your oral health and the translucent appearance of the aligners.
4 No one is too old for Invisalign.
Despite what you may have heard, you are never too old for braces—especially Invisalign. In fact, nearly 4 million adults in the United States have already made the choice to correct the alignment of their teeth and bite with Invisalign. Now, you can join them by choosing the most preferred solution among adults.
