Understandably, patients who are concerned about putting their best smile forward in the workplace may be reluctant to receive orthodontic treatment that will obscure their teeth with unsightly metal appliances for many months. Fortunately, these patients can turn to Invisalign to straighten their smiles with minimal impact on their appearance and little effect on their day-to-day routines.
Invisalign Preserves Your Professional Appearance
With Invisalign, your dentist will provide you with a series of clear plastic trays that reposition your teeth by applying forces to them in the same way that conventional braces do. However, the trays are barely noticeable when you wear them, so you never have to be worried that a client or co-worker will be distracted by your “metal mouth” during an important conversation.
You also get to see the results of your treatment in real time with Invisalign rather than having to wait for months or years for the appliances to be removed. You’ll be able to tell that your teeth are getting straighter within a few months, at most. Furthermore, the treatment timeline with Invisalign is often shorter than with standard orthodontic treatment.
Convenience For Your Busy Life
In addition to preserving your smile’s appearance during treatment, Invisalign is more convenient for busy working professionals, as well. You can take the trays out at meal time, so no need for concern that food will get trapped in your brackets during an important business lunch! You’ll also spend less time coming to our office for appointments, as the dentist only needs to monitor your progress periodically regular than making regular adjustments to the appliances.
Patients take on more responsibility for the success of Invisalign treatment as a return for this increased convenience, however. You must be conscientious about wearing the trays for the recommended amount of time each day, around 22 hours. You also need to switch to new trays in conjunction with the schedule determined by your provider.
