Will Your Orthodontic Appliance Ruin Thanksgiving Dinner?

Many people eagerly anticipate the moment they can sit down at the table and enjoy their Thanksgiving feast. You can picture a plate packed with turkey, and weighed down by all of your favorite sides. However, if you need to start orthodontic treatment, you may worry that the appliance you are provided could make that meal harder to eat. You may even worry that your Thanksgiving meal will be horribly compromised by braces. Fortunately, your Rochester, MN dentist can help by offering treatment using Invisalign aligners. These aligners can be removed by you, so you can take them out before digging in to something that might stick to braces. Your aligners are also beneficial because they are difficult to see, making them an ideal solution for people who need to look professional at work, and for image-focused teen patients who need to correct crooked teeth.

Using Removable, Hard-To-See Invisalign Aligners To Correct Your Crooked Smile

Invisalign aligners make it possible to fix problems with crooked teeth while avoiding some of the drawbacks that make people uncomfortable with metal braces. Bracket and wire braces can be frustrating because foods can become stuck to your appliance, and difficult to remove. They can also be awkward simply because they change your appearance. Invisalign aligners allow you to avoid these problems. You can smile without drawing attention to your orthodontic work, while also enjoying the ability to remove your aligner before a meal.

Other Benefits You Can Enjoy When You Use Invisalign

The benefits to Invisalign can start from your first visit. Your dentist can plan your treatment by using digital images taken with an iTero digital scanner. This takes away that uncomfortable moment where you have to bite into a plaster mold, and it allows your dentist to create an image “preview” of your smile at the end of your correction!
