Eat, Sleep, Work, Repeat: Everything You Can Do With Invisalign
Our Wolverhampton dentists are huge advocates for Invisalign braces. Why? Because as well as Invisalign being a leading orthodontic treatment that’s helped millions of patients around the world, it’s also one of the most flexible options for teeth straightening. Here’s everything you can do with Invisalign and why you should give these fantastic braces a chance.
Clear braces explained
Before we get into the details, our Wolverhampton dentists go over what Invisalign braces are and how they work. Made of a clear acrylic material that’s strong and durable, Invisalign uses aligners to move your teeth into position step-by-step, over some time. Each small adjustment needed is matched to an aligner, so you’ll have to cycle through the sets during your treatment. At the end? You’ll have Invisalign’s very own Vivera retainers to keep your teeth in their new positions.
Eating with Invisalign
People with braces can find it difficult to adjust to wearing them, let alone eating with them. But with these clear braces, you can take out your braces at any time. This means you can eat as normal, without having the aligners in your mouth. Be warned that eating while wearing your Invisalign braces could cause damage or staining to them, or could hurt your mouth.
Sleeping with Invisalign
Most dentists, like our team in Wolverhampton, recommend wearing your clear braces for 20-22 hours per day. This means you’ll have to wear them overnight while you sleep. However, Invisalign is known for being extremely comfortable as no wires or brackets are needed, unlike fixed braces – and once you’re used to wearing them, you’ll probably barely notice you have your braces in.
Working with Invisalign
Because they are clear braces, Invisalign makes for extremely discreet treatment. This means you can wear them out and about, on a date, to school and even at work without other people even knowing you have them in. If you’re shy about your smile or nervous about treatment, this is a huge bonus
