New Year’s resolutions incite personal growth and aspiration, especially when it comes to personal health. While many people consider quitting smoking, exercising more, travel, and changing diet to be the more typical choices for the new year, many people tend to forget how a person’s smile and their teeth affect the way they look at the world around them. If you have a less than perfect smile and wish to change the way you view yourself, Invisalign braces can help align your teeth with ease and simplicity.
What can Invisalign do for you?
Traditional metal braces that while have been steadily improved in appearance and comfort level, still remain attached to the roof and gums of your teeth for a significant amount of time, not allowing you to brush your teeth as well, avoidance of certain foods, and can be uncomfortable at times. While braces can overtime fix complex teeth issues such as closing gaps and align teeth, Invisalign is specifically designed to straighten teeth over time, improving your smile and your oral health. Designed to be nearly invisible, Invisalign is an aligner that’s formed to shape your teeth while also aligning them over time. As your teeth gradually move into position, each week is replaced with a new version of your Invisalign. It also has little maintenance, as you can take it out as you please, eat food and drink, and clean your teeth without having to work around metal braces. Invisalign won’t irritate the gums or cheeks and are custom designed to fit the wearer’s needs. Checkups for patients with Invisalign usually happen every 8 to 12 weeks, as Invisalign focuses on the small, significant changes that happen with your teeth and must be continuously replaced and worn for improvement.
Why you should make it a New Year’s resolution?
Invisalign offers a discreet way to correct and align your teeth without the huge, semi-permanent commitment. However, just like any resolution, using Invisalign every day is the only way that you can align your teeth. Overall progress for Invisalign can take from 8 months to a year, which is the perfect opportunity for you to complete your resolution and impress your friends with a perfect, gleaming smile. However, for some people, Invisalign may not always work or be an option. For those with complex dental issues, Invisalign may not be able to realign the teeth. However, for most people with imperfect teeth, Invisalign is an excellent way to achieve a New Year’s resolution.
