Sponsored by Invisalign – a clear alternative to braces
First, if you’ve seen any of my videos, you can clearly tell that I’ve never worn braces.
I was close to getting braces when I was 18 years old, but due to unforeseen circumstances, it didn’t happen. I literally had the appointment scheduled to have them put on my teeth but ended up not going through with the appointment.
Now that I’m older, I would still love to have straight teeth, but I don’t want braces.
Instead, I’m interested in a more sophisticated option known as Invisalign – a clear alternative to wire braces. I’m actually interested in Invisalign for my kids, too. When the time comes to think about straighter teeth for them, I think Invisalign Teen, which is available for teens and pre-teens, is going to be the answer. The only thing that teens and pre-teens need in order to get started with Invisalign is all of their adult teeth.
A few weeks ago, I had the chance to sit in on a talk with a lot of other moms to learn more about the benefits of getting straighter teeth with Invisalign verses traditional braces.
The benefits of going through the process of getting your teeth straight with Invisalign definitely seems to outweigh the benefits of getting them straight with wires and brackets.
Out with the old, in with the New
Invisalign is the newer, more comfortable way to align teeth. Just look at all the benefits over traditional braces.
Other benefits of Invisalign that I took note of during the talk:
- They aren’t food traps.
- They aren’t bulky and don’t irritate the tissue like wire braces sometimes do.
- Hygiene is relatively easy. It’s easier to clean and brush your teeth, too.
- Aligners are BPA-Free.
- The aligners fit intimately and snuggly over the teeth.
- There are less food restrictions.
- Convenience is key. There are less office visits to go to.
- Invisalign Teen has features specially designed with teens in mind.
- Invisalign may be covered by your dental insurance!
- Kids can play sports with Invisalign. They can actually put a mouth guard over the aligners.
Braces then, Invisalign now. I’m loving this newer, cleaner-looking way to straighten teeth.
