Barbara’s Invisalign Experience – Orthodontics Then Vs Now

Barbara is more than just our patient coordinator – now that she is using Invisalign to straighten her teeth, she is also a patient! Her Invisalign treatment is helping her make corrections to misaligned teeth. What you might not realize is that this is NOT Barbara’s first experience with orthodontic work. Back when she was in fifth grade, Barbara had traditional metal braces. At 26, she is using Invisalign to straighten teeth, and to fix her overbite. While the braces she had as a child made it harder to eat, and clean her teeth, Invisalign avoids interfering with these habits. In fact, her last hygiene appointment showed that she is keeping her teeth in great shape. Using clear plastic aligners also means Barbara can greet patients throughout the day, and have no worries about how her orthodontic work is affecting her smile! 

Invisalign Makes It Easier To Eat, And Clean Your Teeth

Invisalign can be a popular choice because they will not cause problems with a patient’s smile. However, this is hardly the only benefit. One notable advantage is that your Invisalign aligners can be removed whenever you eat, and when you clean your teeth. That makes it easier to keep your smile healthy, and it means avoiding potentially awkward situations when you try to enjoy certain foods.
