In the pursuit of your perfect smile, invisible braces are known to provide you with a better look by removing the wire and brackets from your teeth. But did you know that invisible braces might be able to provide a quick fix for some of your common bad habits?
I’m sure you know the saying, “Old habits die hard”, and if you’re someone struggling with these bad habits, invisible braces may be able to solve them for you or even change your lifestyle for the better.
Many of us are guilty of this! When you turn on your favourite TV show, you immediately crave for a snack to munch on. So, your brain switches to auto pilot mode and starts grabbing whatever tidbits you can find, sometimes even when you are not hungry. However, this snacking cycle can be tamed with invisible braces. The hassle of taking out the aligners and putting them back is a real mood killer which would probably make you think twice about eating snacks. Hence, you will start to reconsider your choices about what and when to eat.
2. Biting nails
I don’t think you are able to find a way to bite your nails while wearing invisible braces. Besides, with your focus set upon your dream smile, would you rather be keeping those aligner trays on as instructed or take them off just for your nail biting pleasure? The choice is pretty obvious. Grab this chance to finally get long, strong fingernails and start painting them to become your gorgeous self that you were meant to be!
3. Excessive consumption of caffeine or alcohol
Drinking alcohol or hot, coloured beverages with invisible braces in your mouth may cause the plastic to stain and change shape. If you don’t want to risk the chance of sabotaging your perfect smile, you will surely start cutting your alcohol or coffee intake. Drinking from time to time is alright, but remember to be cautious and take out your invisible braces trays before consuming.
Smoking while wearing your invisible braces may cause discolouration and stain them in the long run. To make matters worse, if the tobacco manages to get into the trays, there is a chance of causing tooth decay. That would not be a pretty sight and may even ruin your whole smile transformation journey. Take note fellow smokers, become invisible braces may be able to help you kick your smoking habit once and for all.
5. Chewing pens
Similar to nail biting, chewing or biting on pens is a form of a habit that would be detrimental to health due to the exposure of bacteria from the pens. Moreover, there is a possibility of causing your teeth to chip or crack due to excessive biting. With invisible braces, your bite should start aligning properly after wearing it for a few months and the urge to bite or chew a pen should resolve itself.
As with all new experiences, wearing invisible braces takes certain adjustments but it will be worth it when you can enjoy your new smile while breaking your bad habits!
