National Taffy Day is coming up on May 23rd, and although sticky candies like taffy are notoriously bad for your teeth, we think it’s OK to enjoy them every once in a while. If you are getting ready to receive braces, then you should prepare to give up some of your favorite foods—like taffy—because they can get stuck in your wires and pull your brackets off.

But, what if you could straighten your teeth while still enjoying your favorite foods? You’re in luck, because Invisalign® is a popular orthodontic appliance that does not come with wires, brackets, or any dietary restrictions. The clear aligners can be easily popped out any time you want to indulge in a sticky sweet treat. Just remember to keep sticky treats to a minimum for the health of your teeth and visit your dentist in Thousand Oaks, CA, for regular dental cleanings.

Invisalign® Benefits

In addition to giving you full dietary freedom, Invisalign® also offers the following benefits:

  • Comfort: No need to worry about getting your cheeks or lips caught on sharp bracket corners. Invisible aligners have smooth, snag-free surfaces that won’t cause any oral discomfort.
  • Appearance: Clear braces don’t stand out like metal brackets, so you can smile with confidence knowing that most people won’t even notice you’re wearing braces!
  • Treatment Duration: Invisalign® is a quick treatment option that can straighten teeth in as little as one year or less.
  • Better Oral Hygiene: It can be really difficult to take care of your oral hygiene when you have to work around wires and brackets. With invisible aligners, you can simply remove your aligners whenever you need to brush and floss.

Once you are familiar with the many benefits clear aligners offer, it’s easy to see why they are preferred by many patients over traditional braces.
