Thinking about getting Invisalign in Austin as an alternative to traditional braces, but not sure if it’s right for you? The office of Dr. Cynthia Graves will explain why Invisalign could be the best (and most convenient) way to correct your smile!
Whether you’re thinking about Invisalign in Westlake or Anderson Mill, learning how convenient and easy Invisalign treatment can be might just convince you to take the plunge.
Invisalign Can Be Removed When You Play Sports
If you love to play contact sports like hockey, football, or even soccer, braces can be a real problem. With all the potential that those brackets and wires have to pinch, poke and prod your mouth, metal braces can really take you out of the game. You’ll need to buy a custom mouthguard to protect yourself, and if you take a heavy hit after a recent braces adjustment, you may suffer from serious oral pain.
Invisalign can be removed when you play contact sports. That way, you can wear a mouthguard more comfortably during play, and just pop Invisalign back in once you’re done!
Invisalign Won’t Interfere With Your Love Life
Okay, most people won’t say it, but we will! As an adult, braces can be a real problem for your love life. Whether you’re in a committed relationship or “on the market”, braces are not ideal when it comes to romance. But because Invisalign’s clear, plastic aligners are nearly invisible, you can wear them even on a first date!
Invisalign Doesn’t Stop You From Eating Your Favorite Foods
Traditional braces have a lot of food restrictions that you should follow, in order to obtain the best results. If you eat the wrong foods, you could dislodge your brackets or compromise your oral hygiene because of stuck food.
However, Invisalign is removed for snacks and meals. That means you can munch on all the popcorn, gummy candy, and gum that you want without fear. Just remember to brush right after snacking to keep those teeth healthy, too!
Your Oral Health Won’t Be Affected By Invisalign
Brushing and flossing with traditional braces can be quite tough. It’s not easy to keep your teeth clean when brackets and wires are in the way.
Again, Invisalign helps you avoid this issue entirely. You can remove your aligners when brushing and flossing your teeth. In addition, you can even undergo teeth whitening treatments and fluoride treatments while wearing Invisalign. That means you can keep your pearly whites, white!

For some adults, a misaligned or crooked smile can be detrimental to their confidence. But traditional braces can make older patients feel juvenile or immature. This obstacle can make the smile you want seem out of reach. But it doesn’t have to be.
The Invisalign system uses clear, plastic aligners to straighten teeth without affecting your appearance or lifestyle during treatment. Austin, Texas dentist Cynthia L Graves, DDS explains how it works and how you can attain your perfect smile, no matter your age.
The Invisalign Process
Once Dr Graves has determined that Invisalign is right for you, she will take a 3D scan of your mouth. This scan will be used to create a customized series of aligners made just for you. Our office will inform you when your aligners are ready, and Dr. Graves will make sure your first set fits correctly.
From there, just wear the aligners as often as possible – at least 22 hours per day. Change out your aligners for your next set every two weeks, and keep up with your appointments every 6 weeks. Dr. Graves uses these visits to ensure your treatment is progressing and will give you your next few sets of aligners.
Why Is Invisalign Better For Adults
It’s not just an aesthetic issue. Invisalign is a more flexible option that works better for adult lifestyles.
Does not affect diet or eating habits
Whether it’s business dinners, dates, or just enjoying the foods you love, metal braces can dictate what you eat. But with Invisalign’s removable aligners, you can dine without restrictions.
Corrects bite issues
An over or underbite can have severe implications on your oral health. While traditional braces are thought to be a better solution for bit issues, Invisalign can solve these problems, too. Dr. Graves can discuss your options during your initial consultation.
Will not affect day-to-day activities
From speaking to singing to eating, Invisalign does not impede functionality. Once you get used to your aligners, they’ll feel natural to you.
Invisalign makes it easy to keep your oral hygiene in top shape. With proper brushing and flossing, your teeth will remain as healthy as they were before you started treatment. You may even see an improvement as your teeth align and allow for better hygiene habits.
