In modern society, a straight smile is often considered a beautiful smile. However, very few people are born with perfectly straight the teeth and the rest have to struggle their way through dental procedures. Luckily, there is no need to resort to metal brackets and wires for straightening your teeth. Invisalign can help you do so discreetly. And while you are at it, you are likely to experience some benefits that you never thought possible.
At The Centre Of Dental Excellence, we enjoy experimenting with Invisalign in Stanmore. This almost invisible treatment is ideal for image-conscious teenagers and adults who wish to straighten their teeth without anyone knowing. But that’s not the only benefit of Invisalign.
One of the best things about Invisalign is that it is easy to use and comfortable to wear. The only thing you need to remember is to wear your aligners and that’s it. Once they are in your mouth, Invisalign aligners are relatively comfortable, do not compromise your speaking ability and can be easily removed to eat, brush and floss. However, Invisalign required a high level of commitment. If you fail to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours every day, then your treatment is likely to fail as well.
Improve your eating habits
Studies on patients who have been using Invisalign in recent years have shown that they tend to lose weight during and after the treatment. You may be wondering how this is possible, but there is a simple explanation. Invisalign aligners need to be worn for many hours throughout the day and this prevents patients from snacking all day long. As a matter of fact, most patients take their aligners out only to eat their main meals and this means that they consume less food than they usually would. Cutting back on snacking can have a positive impact on your teeth as well. Not consuming snacks high in sugar and sodium is beneficial for your health and the health of your teeth and gums.
