Lifestyle Effects of Invisalign

Lifestyle Effects of InvisalignInvisalign, famous provider of invisible braces for those who feel stigmatized by traditional metal braces, is geared toward fast and active people. This may include corporate types using Invisalign to mend dental relapse after past orthodontic treatment, or kids using Invisalign Teen. Invisalign is a product meant to encourage you in your appearance, no matter how social you are.

Can I Play Sports With Invisalign?

Parents interested in Invisalign for their teens always ask about sports and physical activity. Invisalign is recommended for the athletic teen, as the plastic aligners don’t have the cutting risk of braces. These aligners are highly durable, and won’t break on impact.

Can I Eat and Drink with my Invisalign aligners?

Diet is a major difference between Invisalign and traditional braces. With the latter, the patient is stuck eating through metal for the full treatment cycle. Invisalign is removable, so you should take them out for meals and snacks. In fact, meals and snacks are the only times it’s really okay to take out your aligners. The recommended daily wear time is between 20 and 22 hours. (Yes, you should sleep with them in.)

Do People Notice?

Invisalign built its reputation and literally its name on near-invisibility. Generally, this is true. People on the street won’t notice, and only intimates may be aware you have the aligners in.

Invisalign is made of a translucent polymer that fits the teeth perfectly while maintaining the coveted low profile.
