Give the Gift of Invisalign

It’s December and that special time of the year when everyone searches for the perfect festive gift for their loved ones or themselves. The perfect gift is seen as one that will bring tremendous joy and positively impact the recipient’s life.

If you’re still thinking of a perfect festive gift for a loved one or even yourself, why not give the gift of a straighter and healthier smile with Invisalign?

Here’s why Invisalign makes the perfect gift!

The ideal gift for children, teens and adults

Your smile (which is sometimes taken for granted) can have a huge impact on your self-esteem. A genuine and wide smile reflects good self-confidence. On the other hand, for those who are not too pleased with their smile, it can bring down their self-esteem.

This is where orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign can make the perfect festive gift that will positively change one’s life.

Invisalign needs little to no introduction with its popularity and demand growing since it was introduced to the world of orthodontics. This game-changing orthodontic treatment option has various benefits that stand out and differ from traditional metal braces.

It’s more than just straightening one’s teeth when you give someone an Invisalign treatment. Its benefits go way beyond that and here are the 8 reasons:

#1 The gift of discreteness

Clear aligners such as Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment option that’s discreet. Invisalign’s clear aligners are made out of medical-grade clear plastic that will effectively shift your teeth to their ideal position, possibly without anyone knowing. Therefore, your smile will only change for the better, without you having to worry about standing out more than you would want to.

This feature is especially beneficial for adults but there is no doubt that children and teenagers can also enjoy having their teeth straightened discreetly.

#2 The gift of flexibility

Another benefit of Invisalign clear aligners is that you’re able to remove them anytime! There is almost no reason to remove your Invisalign aligners except for meal times, especially since it’s virtually invisible. However, some individuals might consider doing so if they’re attending a meeting or giving a speech as wearing the clear aligners might cause a temporary lisp.

If this is the case, you can consider removing your clear aligners but with one condition – as long as you have them on for 20 to 22 hours daily, throughout your treatment period. Adhering to this is vital to ensure that your treatment is effective and goes as planned.

#3 The gift perfect for food lovers

Unlike traditional metal braces, your dentist will not be giving you a list of foods to avoid when you’re on your Invisalign treatment. As you’re able to remove your clear aligners, you can enjoy just about anything you’re craving without having to worry about food debris sticking to your clear aligners.

Nonetheless, good oral hygiene is still important throughout your treatment. You’re recommended to brush or at least rinse your mouth after your meals, prior to wearing your aligners once again. This important step helps to prevent food debris from mixing with your saliva and bacteria as this could lead to dental issues such as plaque and bad breath. Also, don’t forget to rinse your Invisalign aligners upon removing them and prior to wearing them again. There are cleaning tools such as the Invisalign Cleaning Crystals that can help to clean your clear aligners, making it easy for you to maintain your clear aligner hygiene while you’re on the go.

#4 The gift of improved oral health

Misaligned teeth increase your risk of gum diseases and tooth decay as bacteria and food debris can accumulate in spaces between your crooked teeth.

By straightening your teeth, you’re able to brush and floss your teeth more effectively. Ultimately, this helps to improve your oral health as well as reduce the chances of the development of oral diseases. Aesthetically, this will also help to reduce teeth staining. In short, you’ll be able to improve your overall oral health simply by correcting the position of misaligned teeth!

#5 The gift of comfort

Pain is often associated with orthodontic treatment, particularly when it comes to metal braces. This is due to regular tightening of the braces as well as possible cuts and sores due to metal wires and brackets that might graze against the delicate skin in your mouth. However, when it comes to Invisalign, there is no need to worry about this. Its clear plastic aligners fit perfectly on your teeth and that makes wearing Invisalign much more comfortable than other orthodontic treatment options.

Nonetheless, it’s important to note that while wearing Invisalign is more comfortable than its counterparts, some individuals might experience slight discomfort due to the pressure applied on their teeth to help them to shift to their ideal position. Not to worry, this discomfort is mild and only temporary. It typically happens when you change to a new set of clear aligners.

#6 The gift of self-esteem

Low self-esteem can negatively affect an individual in many ways including their mental health and trigger negative feelings, which can affect their way of life and decisions.

There are many ways to boost one’s self-esteem, depending on the reason behind why they’re feeling low in the first place. If one of the reasons is due to crooked teeth, Invisalign can play a positive role in addressing the situation and help a person improve their self-esteem with straighter teeth. Just by correcting one’s smile, it can do wonders to the way a person feels about him or herself and at the end of the day, improve their life.

#7 The gift of assurance

Invisalign treatments are offered not just by any dentist but by Invisalign-accredited dentists. From the start to the end of your treatment, your Invisalign-accredited dentist will journey with you.

All Invisalign treatments are supported by technology and tools to give you the best possible Invisalign experience such as the 3D iTero Element scanner and ClinCheck software.

3D iTero Element scanner – Gone are the days where you’ll cringe at having to bite into messy putty. With the 3D iTero Element scanner, this non-invasive method will capture an accurate 3D impression of your teeth and gums through a much more comfortable process. After the scan has been completed, your dentist will be able to have an accurate picture of your mouth captured digitally.

ClinCheck software – The latter is a software that your dentist will use to design your customised Invisalign treatment plan. This is essential as your dentist will need to ensure that the right amount of force is applied on your teeth to not only give you a comfortable experience but more importantly, an effective treatment plan. Your dentist will also be able to give you a glimpse of how your teeth will look at the end of the treatment.

You will be under the care of i.Dental’s Invisalign-accredited dentists where each step in your Invisalign treatment are thoughtfully mapped out, specifically tailored to your dental needs. You will be guided on how to wear your aligners correctly, methods to remove them, and receive a specially curated Invisalign pouch by i.Dental that includes useful accessories to help you with your Invisalign journey.

#8 The gift of freedom

Invisalign can be the perfect orthodontic option, especially for busy individuals. Compared to metal braces that will require regular visits to the dentist, Invisalign eliminates this hassle. With your treatment planned out already, you will not need to visit your dentist as often. All you’ll need to do is to comply with your treatment plan and change your clear aligners to a new set when instructed. Of course, this does not mean that visits to your dentist are eliminated entirely. You will still be required to drop by the dentist to track your treatment progress but it’s not as frequent.

Also, with Invisalign, there is no need to worry about metal wires snapping or mouth injuries that may call for a dental emergency. Therefore, again, this gives you more freedom and less hassle.

Invisalign is not just a gift for adults, its treatment range includes teens and children as young as 6 years old. Make an appointment to learn more about giving the gift of Invisalign to your loved ones or yourself this Christmas!
