Why You Might Opt For Invisalign As An Adult

Many people got the chance to have braces put on their teeth when they were little. If you didn't, for one reason or another, now might be your chance to finally straighten your teeth. Maybe you were scared of the dentist as a child or you were afraid of what those metal braces would look and feel like. Well, now you are an adult and there is a better option for you than those metal braces, and that is Invisalign. Sure, you can still get the metal braces if you want, but you might want to opt for the Invisalign instead. Here's why:

People Will Barely Notice Them

One of the things that holds a lot of adults back from getting braces is that they do not want everyone to notice them. Whether it is a matter of insecurity or simple privacy, if you don't want everyone to notice that you are in the process of having your teeth straightened out, you will want to use Invisalign. This is because it is a clear plastic tray that you trade out for another tray every few weeks, as your teeth adjust. When they are slipped on over your teeth, they are hardly noticeable. Someone would have to get real close and personal and look directly at your teeth in order to notice that there is something different.

You'll Have An Easier Time Cleaning Your Teeth

One hassle that a lot of people with metal braces have is that it can be hard to get all of the food cleaned off of the metal brackets. When you are using Invisalign, you actually remove the plastic tray in order to eat. Then you can brush your teeth and put the tray back in after you are done eating. As you can imagine, keeping your teeth and the plastic tray clean is a lot easier than trying to keep metal brackets, wires, and the exposed sections of your teeth clean. You also won't have to worry about the stains that can usually occur when using the typical braces, as the exposed portion of the teeth come in contact with more food and drinks than the parts that are covered by metal.

You will want to make an appointment with your dentist so you can begin to discuss getting Invisalign for your teeth. He or she will examine how much adjustment work needs done and will discuss payment options with you.

Tips to Help With Pediatric Dental Anxiety

My child's first visit to the dentist was the stuff that nightmares are made of. She kicked. She screamed. By the end of the visit, she and I were exhausted. After talking to the dentist in a separate consultation, I learned some useful tips for helping her to prepare for her next visit. The dentist assured me the next visit would be better and it was. I started this blog to help other parents whose children are dealing with dental anxiety. With useful information from my dentist and other parents, you can learn techniques to make the visit to the dentist more exciting for your children.
