Sometimes the most popular things are baffling. Why do so many people love Game of Thrones? How does Pokemon have such longevity? What’s so great about “tidying up”? Popularity ebbs and flows, as Keanu Reeves and cauliflower can attest. When it comes to Invisalign, however, its popularity never wanes, and there are plenty of reasons why.
Most Invisalign wearers consider the appearance of Invisalign to be the biggest benefit of this orthodontic treatment. The benefit being, of course, that you really can’t see Invisalign at all. The nearly invisible aligners are so thin and closely fitted to your teeth that they’re nearly impossible for anyone to spot. Keep your teeth and aligners clean, particularly before and after meals, and Invisalign will stay clear so it can continue to do its job discreetly and effectively.
The customized aligners are smooth and contoured so they fit snugly and your lips move easily around them. There are no brackets or wires poking into your cheeks and lips as with conventional metal braces. Sure, there will be some discomfort with each new set of aligners that you wear but that’s normal – you are moving teeth and tooth roots to their proper places, after all. There is work to be done with any orthodontic treatment, but Invisalign makes it far more comfortable than other alignment methods.
Red Bank Invisalign takes about half the time of traditional metal braces to create a straight smile. Typical treatment time is around one year, though some patients take longer and others require less time. Each set of aligners is designed to move certain teeth at certain times, so you will soon notice your smile slowly but methodically shifting into alignment.
Ask any wearer of metal braces what the biggest drawback is and, chances are, many of them will say the food restrictions. You simply cannot eat chewy and crunchy and stringy foods when you’re wearing brackets and wires. You risk damaging the hardware, plus cleaning the food out from between your teeth and braces will be a bit of a nightmare.
When you wear Invisalign, you aren’t limited in any way or restricted from eating the food you love. All you need to do is remove the aligners for every meal and snack and pop them back in when you’re done (and you’ve cleaned the aligners and your teeth).
Invisalign does not interrupt your life. It won’t get in the way of professional responsibilities – you can meet face-to-face with people, give presentations, sell, promote, repair, teach. Because Red Bank Invisalign is barely noticeable, you can smile, take pictures, speak, post selfies, attend events, and everything in between without embarrassment or self-consciousness.
You must see your Red Bank Invisalign provider about every six weeks for a check-up and to collect your next sets of aligners, but this is a small inconvenience for such a powerful, effective method for straightening your teeth.
