Crooked teeth, misaligned jaws, a bite problem– are all issues that can be easily treated by an orthodontist.
If you are an athlete or play any sport, it is important that you let your orthodontist know that fact. Chances are that they will recommend an Invisalign treatment for teeth straightening in your case. Invisalign are aligners made up of transparent plastic material. They are a great choice of athletes as they do not have metal wires that can be injurious in case of contact injuries.
Following are the top 4 benefits of Invisalign treatment for athletes instead of traditional braces.
Safer Option for Contact Sports
If you are into contact sports, traditional braces are risky for you. A blow or impact to your mouth can be fatal for conventional braces and your jaws. Your mouth can be injured if the brackets and wires will pop out.
Invisalign is custom-made for your gums and teeth. Chances of them getting damaged or coming out because of a blow or fall are lesser. On top of this, you can remove your aligners before the game and wear them again afterward.
Flash Your Winning Smile Without Hesitation
Victory is a moment of glory for every athlete. You would want to celebrate it with cheers, smiles, and probably a victory dance! But the visibility of your metal braces can make you conscious in front of a cheering crowd and your teammates.
Invisalign braces are mainly designed for negligible visibility. Your teammates and crowd won’t know that you are wearing braces. Young athletes are more concerned about their appearance. Thus orthodontists prefer to prescribe Invisalign for teens and young athletes.
No Extra Expense on Customised Mouth-guard
You will need to get a custom-made mouth-guard to keep your braces safe because the typical sports mouth-guard might harm your traditional braces. Therefore you need to spend an extra amount on mouth-guard if you opt for teeth straightening with traditional braces.
With Invisalign, you don’t need to worry about the fitting of the mouth-guard. You can remove the aligners before playing high-impact sports. You can put on the traditional mouth-guard on your teeth and play with peace of mind. After your game or practice is over, you can put on the Invisalign again.
No Need to Rush to the Orthodontist
If your metal braces get even slightly damaged or disturbed during the game, you will need to leave the game and rush to the orthodontist. You will need an emergency appointment as damaged braces can be painful. Also, delaying the visit to the orthodontist can cause more damage to your braces and jaws.
This kind of emergency won’t arise with Invisalign. You can remove them before the game to prevent them from getting damaged due to high impact or fall. It won’t make you run to the hospital. This is another benefit of Invisalign being removable braces.
These are a few reasons to choose Invisalign as your teeth straightening treatment. You can know about its other benefits in your next visit to the orthodontist.
