I had braces when I was in junior high, big metal braces. You know the kind, where you get to choose different colored elastics for them each month. Cool right? I mean, who wouldn't want to draw more attention to their braces?
When you have braces you learn how to not draw attention to your mouth. I learned how to not smile so big, my husband who had braces in high school learned how to cover his teeth with his lips when he smiled so his braces wouldn't show.
If you don't know about Invisalign, it's a new alternative to braces. Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth over time. Invisalign has straightened over 2 million smiles and counting. Check out the advantage of Invisalign over braces for yourself. I hope to convince my husband to get me Invisalign in the new year.
I love that Invisalign can treat crowded teeth, which I have a problem with. I love that you can brush and floss your teeth just like normal. Flossing with braces was so frustrating and hard. I love that I can still whiten my teeth with Invisalign. After getting my braces off I remember seeing spots and discoloration on my teeth. And don't get me started on the canker sores I would get from braces.
Now I want to know, have you used Invisalign? What do you think?
