The many benefits of Invisalign aligners


Invisalign isn’t just a state-of-the-art orthodontic option that can change your smile and life – it’s an investment. An investment in yourself and your oral health, with the potential to enjoy a spectacular smile that lasts a lifetime.


Aesthetics aren’t the only thing at stake since your aligners can fix a number of orthodontic issues that could otherwise cause serious problems down the line. Whether your teeth are overcrowded or harbor gaps, Invisalign treatment can correct misalignment and prevent it from wrecking your dental health.


Your Invisalign aligners are also virtually painless compared to traditional metal braces because they only move your teeth by fractions of a millimeter at a time. You’ll receive a new set of aligners routinely, yet even this is more convenient, as you won’t have to come in for as many in-office check-ups. Plus, it goes without saying that Invisalign treatment is so discreet that people are unlikely to notice you’re even wearing them.


This massive elimination in discomfort and self-consciousness does not mean the effects are any less stunning. Quite the opposite, in fact, your results can come 25% more quickly with Invisalign treatment and can significantly cut down treatment times. However, your specific timeline will depend on multiple factors, including your dental status and the specifics of your "Dr Diagnosed" personalized treatment plan. (Beware of "imposters"!! (Like TV DIY no Dr "fake" companies.)


Should you sleep in your Invisalign aligners?


To fully enjoy all the benefits of your revolutionary Invisalign treatment schedule, which includes significantly expedited results, you will have to wear your aligners TWENTY-FOUR-SEVEN!!! Remove them ONLY to eat for FIFTEEN MINUTES MAXIMUM!!!. This also means that you won’t have any food restrictions since you can take out your aligners for meal times and continue eating all the foods you love.


You can also remove your aligners daily for proper hygiene purposes, helping you avoid dental decay and its associated complications in multiple ways. First, by correcting a common problem, overcrowding, you’ll be able to clean the surfaces of your teeth properly. Second, during your Invisalign treatment, you’ll be able to remove your trays to more easily and effectively brush and Waterpik, something that was impossible with the stifling, cumbersome painful old metal braces of the past.


Reap the rewards of cutting-edge orthodontic treatments


With so many advantages over the outdated orthodontic treatments of days past, there’s no reason to hesitate. The sooner you act, the sooner you or your loved ones will enjoy the transformative effects of Invisalign aligners. In addition to improved dental health, Dr. Douglas D. Durbin would love to help you achieve a long-lasting, head-turning smile with as little discomfort and inconvenience as possible!


So, contact us today at Kentucky Orthodontics & Invisalign to schedule an appointment at one of our Kentucky offices in Lexington, Georgetown, Winchester, Mount Sterling/Owingsville, Richmond, and Nicholasville; or in Boynton Beach, FL.
