Why there is no need to keep the Gloucester smile hidden with Invisalign braces

Misaligned teeth may cause adults and teenagers to feel self-conscious when laughing or socializing. They may daydream about their ideal smiles, yet worry about the appearance of traditional metal braces. Whether they live in Gloucester or another community, Dr. France Chevalier can provide Invisalign treatment at her Ottawa dental practice. This innovative orthodontic solution involves clear aligner trays and can be an ideal alternative to traditional metal braces. With Invisalign, there should be no need to keep the smile hidden. Dr. Chevalier can explain reasons her patients can smile confidently throughout Invisalign treatment.
  1. Invisalign aligners are generally comfortable. One of the primary concerns of patients is the comfort of treatment. Patients understand metal brackets and wires can irritate the cheeks and gums. The Invisalign system includes clear professional grade, smooth plastic trays that are changed every two weeks. They can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. We recommend wearing them at least 20-22 hours per day to achieve optimal results.
  2. The Invisalign system can afford more flexibility than traditional orthodontics. If there is a special event at work, a reunion, or wedding, the aligners can be removed. Oral health regimens do not need to change to accommodate Invisalign. Patients brush and floss their teeth as they normally would. There are also no food restrictions, so patients can bite into apples, snack on popcorn, or chew gum. They do not have to worry about food becoming trapped between the teeth and wires.
  3. Patients can enjoy playing sports and instruments throughout Invisalign treatment. Adults and teenagers do not have to worry about being hit in the mouth with a ball while wearing traditional metal braces or cutting their lip while playing the trumpet.
