Personal health has become one of the most popular choices for new year’s resolutions. Some people quit smoking, exercise more, travel across Europe and Asia, and changing their eating habits. Many though tend to forget about their teeth, as dental care may seem like a minor issue. Smiles have a huge impact on the way people perceive themselves, but most people tend to forget about how their smile can improve confidence, self-esteem, and assiduity through life. If crooked or less-than-pearly white teeth have got you down, then Invisalign may be an excellent solution.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a clear, plastic aligner designed to straighten teeth over time, focusing on steadily improving appearance without the sacrifice of comfort. While most traditional metal braces attach to the roof of the mouth and the gums of the teeth for support, Invisalign forms to the shape of your teeth and progresses with your growth. As your teeth move into position, each set is replaced with a newer, updated version of your Invisalign. While traditional braces don’t have the luxury of removability, Invisalign can easily be removed from the mouth so that the person wearing them can eat, drink, and brush your teeth without worry or struggle. Their simplistic design won’t irritate the gums and cheeks, are custom-fit to the wearer’s needs, and can help fix issues such as small gaps and misaligned teeth.
Why choose Invisalign as a New Year’s Resolution?
Metal braces usually focus on steady improvement over time, which means that the wearer might have to wear their braces for more than a few years depending on the condition of their teeth. Invisalign can improve the appearance of your teeth within a year, which allows you to achieve your goals of having beautiful teeth within a reasonable time. With Invisalign, you can complete your new year’s resolution with little to no hassle, because all Invisalign requires you to do is wear them at least 12 hours a day. You can take them out, care for your teeth, and sleep peacefully without the feeling of metal in your mouth. On an important note, Invisalign works for those with minor teeth issues. Those with more complex dental issues, Invisalign may not work due to the specific process in how it functions. However, if you wish to improve the look of their teeth over time and believe that Invisalign might be a good option, then contacting your dentist about the costs and procedures involved will be an excellent start to your new year’s resolution.
