What is it like to have Invisalign? An Interview with Kayla at Apple Valley Dental
Not only is Kayla, one of the friendly dental assistants at Apple Valley Dental Group, she is also one of a handful of staff members who undergoing the Invisalign process.
What has been your experience with Invisalign so far?
So far, it has been great. I have had little pain and overall had a very smooth experience.
Why did you choose Invisalign over traditional braces?
There were several reasons. One was aesthetics, I felt like I was in a stage of my life where I didn’t want the look of braces. Also as a dental assistant, I knew that Invisalign would allow me to keep my teeth cleaner than traditional braces, since I could remove them to brush and floss my teeth more thoroughly.
I also appreciate not having to avoid foods that could damage braces. I can just take the Invisalign retainers off when I eat.
It was also nice to have the convenience of staying here at the practice and not having to travel elsewhere to have my teeth straightened. Because of the nature of my bite, I was a good candidate for Invisalign.
How far along are you in the process?
I am about a year into it, and should finish the beginning of next year.
