6 Reasons to Be Thankful for Invisalign

Thankful for Invisalign Day Dr. Alana Macalik

November is the month to be thankful for everything in your life and for many people that thankfulness includes Invisalign. This orthodontic alternative is life-changing for everyone who wears it, giving them a beautiful, healthy smile. If you’re still on the fence about whether this innovative treatment is right for you, it’s time to learn more about the perks of Invisalign.

1. The trays are nearly invisible.

One of the most appealing characteristics of Invisalign is that it’s almost impossible to see the aligners on the teeth. The trays are clear and slim and fit snugly. As long as you clean them properly and don’t eat with them in, you’ll avoid stains and discoloration and keep each set of aligners clean and clear for the two weeks you wear each set.

2. You can eat whatever you want.

Wearers of traditional braces have restrictions. They can’t eat chewy, gummy, hard, or crunchy foods easily, if at all, without potentially damaging the hardware of their braces. When you wear Invisalign, a hard and fast rule is that trays must be removed for meals and snacks. That means you’re not limited to any foods – eat whatever you want, as long as your shifting teeth don’t feel too tender to handle it.

3. Treatment is fast.

Compared to conventional metal braces which take about two years to complete, Invisalign treatment takes about half the time. Some patients may even be able to squeeze in their treatment in six months to one year. This length of time will depend on how complex your misalignment is and whether your entire mouth is being realigned or whether just a few gaps or crooked teeth are being corrected.

4. They work for adults and teens.

Patients can qualify for Invisalign at any age. Teens who are ready for orthodontic treatment may be great candidates for Invisalign Teen, which makes room for erupting teeth and includes wear indicators so your Arlington, TX, Invisalign provider knows the trays are being worn as instructed. Adults are thrilled because they can finally get the straight teeth they’ve always wanted without anyone noticing their treatment.

5. It’s easy to clean your teeth.

One of the biggest complaints wearers of conventional braces have is how difficult it is to clean between their wires and brackets. All you have to do with Invisalign is brush and floss normally and clean your trays daily as instructed. And, of course, you’ll keep up with regular dental cleanings and exams at your Arlington dentist.

6. You can pay for them using your HSA.

The end of the year is an excellent time to get Invisalign treatment started. You have reached a point where your health savings account has either been drained or has funds remaining. Don’t let those use-it-or-lose-it benefits go to waste. Pay for a portion of your Invisalign treatment up front and reduce your credit card payment or financed monthly payments.
