American adults have a confidence problem. A 2016 survey revealed that 36% of American adults feel they lack the confidence to participate in major life events like speaking at a wedding or giving a presentation for their job.
That same study revealed that after weight, Americans are most concerned with how their teeth look. These insecurities tend to stem from insecurities we had as teenagers.
The good news is it’s a bit easier to get straight teeth than it is to lose weight. That’s especially true if you use Invisalign.
With invisible braces, you won’t only feel confident after your treatment is completed, you’ll also feel confident during treatment, too.
Keep reading to learn more about how Invisalign braces can boost your confidence.
Better Oral Health
Brushing and flossing can be hard when your teeth are out of alignment or too close together. This creates the perfect environment for bacteria to grow, causing bad breath.
Not being able to brush and floss properly can lead to tooth decay and gum disease in the long run.
When you straighten your teeth with invisible braces, it’s easier to thoroughly clean between your teeth. This will lead to better breath.
When your breath is fresh and clean, you feel more confident instead of having to constantly pop breath mints.
No Brace Face
Having braces as an adult can be really embarrassing. In many cases, adults would rather have crooked teeth than get traditional metal braces.
Perhaps the best part about Invisalign for many dental patients is that no one can tell when you have the braces in. You can correct your alignment without ugly metal brackets.
Watch the Magic Happen
Perhaps one of the most gratifying things about invisible braces is you can really see the progress your teeth are making. With each new tray you get from your dentist, you’ll see how straight your teeth are and how much straighter they’ll become.
This progress can be harder to notice with metal braces since your orthodontist will make adjustments to your braces without taking them off.
Invisible braces are more comfortable in a couple of ways.
The first is that the trays are simply more comfortable. You have durable plastic trays straightening your teeth rather than metal brackets.
The second is you feel more comfortable and confident in social situations with invisible braces. You won’t feel held back from going to important social events or giving big presentations.
The Final Reveal
After months of invisible braces, nothing will make you feel more confident than taking them out for the last time. Nothing says I have amazingly straight teeth like flashing a big smile.
Showing a big smile makes you exude confidence and makes you seem friendlier.
Invisalign Gives You More Reasons to Smile
You’ll feel impossibly happy and confident after using Invisalign braces.
Not only will your oral hygiene improve, but you’ll end up with a straight smile that will make you feel great about yourself. You also won’t have to go through the arduous ordeal of having metal braces.
