Good oral hygiene is crucial to every human. Orthodontic procedures are often correlated with adolescents, but not everyone receives the care they deserve when they’re young.
More than a half-million people above the age of 18 are currently undergoing orthodontic care. The reasons adults want to improve orthodontic treatment range from cosmetics to necessary for healthy oral health.
The first and most apparent justification for someone to have a brace is presentation. Straight, white teeth will allow you to have faith as you smile. Not only can be distorted and cramped teeth look unpleasant, but they are even more challenging to keep clean. If you can’t brush your teeth correctly, other issues will continue to arise. Tooth decay will damage the teeth and lead to severe jawbone issues if not treated early.
Crooked teeth are just the beginning of the process. Other brace issues can be fixed:
- Disabilities of the jaw or jaw location
- Nausea or earaches caused by misaligned jaws
- Difficulty with chewing
- Problems with speaking
Alternatives of Adult Braces: Invisalign
Invisalign Kanata is the most common alternative to standard metal braces for adults. The procedure consists of transparent plastic trays that fit over your teeth replaced every two weeks with a new one. To do this, we’ll take a visual x-ray of your whole mouth and schedule your procedure from start to finish.
The BPA-free, food-grade plastics aligners are transparent, so they are nearly invisible. This is a significant benefit for adults who deal with the public and need to perform at their absolute best.
Some people don’t really know that you’re wearing braces until you notify them because they’re not seen in photos. Some teens don’t like wearing braces, then that’s all right, but if they don’t want to do it because of threats or bullying, Invisalign may be the response.
The plastic trays can be removed. This is another tremendous advantage over conventional braces. This ensures that you can usually brush and floss to make oral hygiene better.
Brushing and flossing with conventional braces is a significant undertaking that has to be completed properly, or the teeth will be affected. You may have tooth erosion or white streaks on the enamel that never go down.
With Invisalign, detach trays to eat or drink something other than water. Chocolate, tea, wine and flavoured juices are going to stain the trays, meaning you don’t get that perfect white smile until you get your new tray.
It may seem difficult to remove a tray in a cafeteria, but you’ll find a way to do it privately or discreetly. Since you just need to wear the aligners 22 hours a day, you will pull it off to attend a special event.
If you mistakenly miss one, please email us directly so that you can get a substitute as soon as possible. Going outside without an aligner will prolong the duration of your medication. This isn’t a concern for conventional braces because they don’t get out until therapy is finished.
You can eat anything you want without any dietary limitations, but after each meal, you have to wash and floss. Some people are taking a portable toothbrush with them. Others find that they eat less much and earn a weight loss bonus.
The trays are very comfortable. Plastics are soft, and there are no metals to prick your jaw or tongue.
Benefits of Invisalign
There are a variety of benefits to Invisalign care. Patients enjoy the fact that this procedure does not require metal brackets or metals that can disturb the mouth. It’s also a quick procedure since the trays can be withdrawn for feeding, sleeping, and other brief periods.
This ensures that you can eat and drink whatever you want and comfortably keep up with your teeth’ daily brushing and flossing. Best of all, Invisalign is an intangible therapy. You’re not going to think about the look of braces. In fact, most people will never understand that you are receiving dental treatment.
