There are many advantages to having straighter teeth as an adult.
Studies have found that when you meet someone, they construct a first impression about you in 0.3 seconds, and if that person is a potential business partner, you really need to smile in order to make good working contact. Not so easy when you have misaligned teeth!
Indeed, it has even been found that people are more likely to listen to you if you have a straighter smile, they are more likely to treat you better and will often be more engaged with you. What’s not to like about that?
But while you may be thinking that having a straighter smile as an adult will mean wearing metal braces, this is no longer the case! Thanks to Invisalign Wagga, you can get the straighter smile you want without attracting unwanted attention.
Are there any other benefits of wearing Invisalign? Read on to find out!
Better oral health
With traditional braces, there is the disadvantage of not being able to brush your teeth effectively. And if you do not attend your hygienist appointments, this can equate to poorer dental health in the long-term.
As Invisalign in Wagga is removable, you are able to take it out to follow your regular dental routine, equating to better oral health.
As mentioned before, this invisible brace is removable, meaning you can take it out for dental appointments or when you are brushing your teeth.
However, you can also take it out when you are eating food, so you do not need to limit your favourite foods when you undertake this aligner. Just make sure you put it back in, as your dentist will probably give you a minimum wear time of 22 hours per day to get the best results.
Another advantage almost all invisible braces have is that they offer a faster treatment time.
Indeed, with this particular brand of invisible braces, the average turn-around time is about 6 months, meaning you can start treatment ahead of any important events that you want to look your best for.
Be aware, however, that this is the average treatment time. Your’s may differ depending on the severity of your misalignment and your dedication to sticking to the wearing guidelines as laid down by your dentist.
OK, so these braces are clear and that offers better discretion in day-to-day life.
It also offers other advantages; it allows you to easily detect any missed debris that may be caught underneath them. Similarly, as they are made from clear plastic, they are easy to wash compared to metal braces. Simply rinse them under a tap and pop them back in! Do not use mouthwash to clean them, or run them under hot taps as this may stain and warp the plastic.
With an over 96% success rate long-term, this brace has proven itself to be reliable at helping people get the smiles they want! What more could you want? Speak to your Invisalign dentist in Wagga.
