How Invisalign Can Save You Time 

If you’re an adult with a malocclusion, there may be a number of factors holding you back from orthodontic treatment. These can range from cost concerns to worries over an altered appearance to fears about discomfort.

Procrastinating on straightening your teeth can become prolonged when you consider how inconvenient metal braces will be. Adapting your life to braces and the amount of time that takes can be enough to make you say no to a straight smile.

Compared to traditional fixed orthodontic appliances, Invisalign aligners help you avoid these seismic shifts to your life and schedule.

Instead of consuming chunks of time on meal prep, oral hygiene, and appearance concerns, busy adults will find that Invisalign empowers them to stay efficient throughout the day.

Here are a few ways correcting your bite with Invisalign can save you time:

Invisalign saves time during meals.

When you get metal braces, you’ll need to spend some amount of time navigating around your braces for leftover breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. It’s an unpleasant fact, especially if you’re a hard-working business person accustomed to taking quick meal breaks.

With metal braces, you may have to…

  • Avoid certain foods for the sake of time.
  • Spend time cutting up your food into smaller pieces.
  • Eat more slowly as many dental practices recommend chewing carefully.

The good news is that, with Invisalign, you’ll simply remove your clear aligners to eat in a normal fashion. There’s no brainstorming about what you can and can’t eat, and there’s certainly no need to plan a longer lunch hour.

Invisalign saves time spent on oral hygiene.

Mealtime isn’t the only way metal braces can take a bite out of your day. They will also lengthen the amount of time you spend caring for your teeth.

Whether you choose traditional braces or Invisalign, you’ll still need to clean your teeth after each meal, but here’s the difference…

With Invisalign, you’ll brush and floss your teeth without the obstruction of brackets and wiring. Before you grab the toothbrush, you’ll simply take out your aligners to brush normally.

However, with metal braces, you’ll need to be generous with the time you plan for oral hygiene. As you floss and brush, you’ll need to do more than avoid damaging your braces. You’ll also need to clean the food that’s clinging to them — quite inconvenient if you’re pressed for time already.

Invisalign saves time spent worrying over your appearance.

You may have never considered how worrying about your appearance can consume the precious minutes in your day. Yet if you choose metal braces to fix your dental problems, you may be faced with situations like these:

  • Instead of heading to the business meeting, you take a detour to the powder room to check your smile. You’re worried that your latest office snack is sticking to your teeth.
  • Instead of focusing on the business presentation, you’re wasting time worrying about how you look with braces.
  • Instead of confidently sailing from one social exchange to the next, you spend little snippets of time before each event, making sure your braces are acceptable.

In contrast, Invisalign allows you to rest assured that your orthodontic treatment is practically unnoticeable. You can avoid the mental gymnastics and quick trips to the mirror and enjoy confidence in your clear plastic aligners.

Avoid wasting your valuable time with the inconveniences of metal braces.

Instead, enjoy the freedom and efficiency of Invisalign for straightening your teeth.
