If you’re an athlete/ sportsperson in India or even someone who enjoys a little recreational run-around, who needs teeth straightening, then you’ve got a problem. Traditional corrective procedures, such as metal braces or even dentures, will severely curtail your activity thus, a way for you to attain a great smile without missing a beat – clear aligners for Invisalign.
The Trouble with Braces
When you wear braces, you have a decent amount of wire and metal dwelling in your mouth. That poses a problem for any type of contact sport. Get a decent shot to the jaw and your braces are likely to be seriously misaligned. In fact, almost any sport carries a risk of injury.
Because you are dealing with metal and wire in your mouth, the impact on this part of your face carries with it the likelihood of cutting your gums and lips.
Regular mouthguards might not be suggested for the long term. Braces wearers need to heat up a regular mouthguard and then bite into it to make teeth imprints. But as your teeth are realigned, the mouthguard will try to force them back into their old position. Besides, if a person wearing a regular mouthguard is hit hard enough, the force will shatter the wire brackets anyway.
In order to protect the mouth, it is possible for braces wearers to have a special orthodontic mouthguard made. But these are uncomfortable. As suggested by our specialists, orthodontists in India at The Dental Roots, highly recommend that a sportsperson should opt for clear aligners like Invisalign, and Flash to rectify one’s dental alignment.
The Invisalign Solution
Invisalign are clear, thin plastic alignment trays that are customized to fit perfectly over your teeth. Unlike braces, which feature numerous bumps and corners, they are completely smooth. As a result, they do not carry the risks of cutting the mouth that comes with facial impact to a wearer of braces.
The great advantage that clear Invisalign aligners have over braces, apart from being invisible, is that they are removable. That means that when you're playing a contact sport such as football, rugby, hockey, or kabaddi you can simply remove your Invisalign and pop in a regular mouthguard. Some people even wear a mouthguard right over their Invisalign. However, this is not advised by our experts as it may detract from the protection afforded by the actual mouthguard.
For sports where you wouldn’t normally wear a mouthguard, you can safely play while wearing your Invisalign. These sports, though they may involve limited bodily contact, generally don’t end up in whacks to the face. These may include such activities as cricket, soccer, basketball, and tennis. Activities such as athletic events, cycling, and gymnastics may impose a degree of jarring on the body, but they, too, will not overly stress your mouth area and so can be enjoyed while wearing your Invisalign.
If you play such high-impact sports as football, wrestling, hockey, rugby, or polo, simply take your Invisalign out and pop in a regular mouthguard. Just remember to store your Invisalign in their carry case – and don’t forget to floss and brush your teeth thoroughly before putting your Invisalign back in your mouth.
