Our CCOA dentists offer Invisalign® to those who are looking for an effective orthodontic solution that won't dramatically change their daily routine. Learn more about how you can go about your normal life with Invisalign.
Is Invisalign Right For Me?
People often associate Invisalign with those who are focused more on appearance than function. But that couldn't be further from the case because Invisalign treatments are more powerful than one might think.
Invisalign can help straighten misaligned, gapped, and crooked teeth. The fact that your routine will not be drastically changed to accommodate your orthodontic treatment will give you enough reasons to ask your dentist if Invisalign is right for your smile.
How your routine will remain the same
If your dentist decides that Invisalign clear aligners are the orthodontic option to try to straighten your teeth, you might be wondering how this will change your daily routine. Thankfully, Invisalign is designed in a way that won't drastically change your lifestyle.
Invisalign clear aligners are discrete and removable to ensure that you can continue to live your life as you typically would while you straighten your teeth.
Eat and drink everything you normally would
With standard braces, patients are often limited with what they can eat. Some foods will damage, or get trapped between braces. Invisalign trays are removable, which allows patients to eat or drink anything they would normally.
The only difference is that before you can put your trays back in your mouth, you will need to brush your teeth.
Your speech won't drastically change
Invisalign trays are custom-made and fit snugly over your teeth. As with any oral appliance, while you are getting used to the device, your speech may differ slightly. Don't be concerned, this is completely normal and will often go away quickly.
With a little bit of practice, you'll be able to overcome any issues you once had with speaking clearly. If the issue persists, contact a CCOA member practice
