Adults seeking options for correcting misalignment often voice reservations about traditional braces because of their obtrusive visible profile. You don’t need to rely on braces for every alignment change, though. Invisalign provides you with a low-profile option that can take care of mild to moderate alignment changes with a series of clear aligner trays worn throughout the day. Here are three reasons why you should consider this option if you have been talking to a dentist in Spokane, WA about correcting alignment problems.
- You Can Enjoy All Your Favorite Foods
The aligner trays used in this system can be removed at mealtimes, for public speaking engagements, and at other important times. They do need to be worn during sleep, though. As long as they are in place at least 22 hours a day, you’re getting all the benefits of the system. That means you can easily spare time for meals without worrying about your tray being in the way.
- Low Visual Profile, Even When Speaking
Traditional braces are known to be highly visible, and even with options like ceramic brackets, it’s not hard to see when someone is wearing them. If you’re concerned about first impressions or clarity when you’re speaking, the aligner trays are your option. No one will see them under normal circumstances, and they stay out of the way while you are talking.
- Efficient Alignment Changes
With the gentler, lower-profile approach offered through this system, you might expect the treatment would take longer than with traditional braces, but that’s just not so! Invisalign treatments work on about the same timeline as braces.
