Many Invisalign wearers have concerns about how their treatment might interfere with all the fun and important things in their life. Rest assured, this clear aligner option is specifically designed to be discreet, comfortable, and unobtrusive. When Halloween rolls around, you will not feel inconvenienced by this dental appliance. Here are 4 reasons Invisalign won’t ruin your Halloween fun…
1. You can eat whatever you want.
You already know as an Invisalign patient that there are no food restrictions. You can dig into any meal without worrying about your trays because they will be out of your mouth and carefully stashed away for safekeeping. The same goes for Halloween candy. When you’re ready to indulge, just pop out that aligner and pop in your favorite sweets.
Your only limitations will be your comfort level in eating certain sweets. Some might be tougher for you to manage than others since your teeth are shifting and could be sensitive. Stick to the soft stuff that melts and you’ll be in good shape. Just remember to brush and floss before putting teeth and aligner back together. You don’t want any sugar and bacteria sticking around to haunt your tooth enamel and cause cavities.
2. There will be no costume interference.
Unless you were planning to sport a set of glow-in-the-dark vampire fangs for Halloween, Invisalign will never interfere with the costume you have planned. The trays are slim, clear, and blend right into your smile so they’re completely unnoticeable. Just make sure on this buy and festive day of the year that you still wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours.
3. You are less likely to overindulge.
If you’re someone who cannot handle the temptation of candy all October long, you’ll be delighted to have the excuse of Invisalign to keep you in line. The trays must be removed for all meals – and snacks. You’ll find yourself asking if that mini bar of chocolate is worth the effort of taking out your trays then cleaning up before putting them back in. Probably not. Chances are, what you’re craving now will pass. Not only will your oral health thank you, your waistline will, too.
4. You’ll want to be in every photo.
If you’ve been living with crooked or misaligned teeth for a long time, you’ve probably spent years hiding in the background of photos, closing your mouth so no one sees your teeth, or avoiding pictures altogether. Invisalign blends in with everything, and you’ll notice a shift in the look of your teeth after only a few weeks of wear. Your confidence will grow and you’ll be so ready to share your smile with everyone. This will be a Halloween to remember, as will every October 31 to follow.
