Invisalign aligners have become an incredibly popular orthodontic treatment. They’re remarkably discreet, and their removability means that you can enjoy all the same foods that you could before you started the treatment.
However, with Valentine’s around the corner, you may be wondering how Invisalign can affect the impression you make on a first date. If you’re curious, here are a few things you should know about dating with Invisalign.
Your Aligners Are Discreet
When you meet someone for the first time, especially someone you’re trying to impress, you may not be able to shake the feeling that they’re looking at your orthodontic appliance. The fact of the matter is that this is almost certainly untrue. Your Invisalign aligners are incredibly hard for someone to notice, especially if you don’t point them out.
Even if your romantic partner knows you’re wearing them, your aligners are far from distracting. As soon as the conversation shifts, just about anyone would forget they’re looking at them.
Your Dinner Plans Could Change
If you’ve been wearing your aligners for a while, you’re probably already used to taking them out before you eat, and cleaning them after meals. In that case, you already understand the biggest part of keeping your aligners safe.
However, going out to eat while wearing Invisalign can pose some interesting challenges. If you don’t want your partner to see you take out your aligners, you can always find time to excuse yourself to the bathroom and remove them there.
Speaking With Invisalign
If you’ve just recently gotten your aligners, you may have noticed a little bit of trouble speaking while wearing them. Not everyone will experience this, but it isn’t that unusual to have a little bit of a lisp when you first start wearing your trays.
This will naturally go away with time, but if you have a big date coming up you might do some speaking practice to ensure that you’re speaking the way you should. Record yourself reading aloud from your favorite book and listen back to how you sound, focusing on words you have trouble pronouncing.
Ultimately you don’t have to worry much about how Invisalign will affect your love life. Keep these tips in mind, and you can still make as good of an impression as ever.
