Sandra, a patient currently using eon Aligners to correct her malocclusion, shared with us some benefits from using eon Aligner that we found unexpected and surprising. Here's what she says:
One of my favorite foods is tabbouleh, a finely chopped salad made from parsley, tomatoes and bulgur. If I've chosen metal braces instead of my transparent aligners, it would take ages to clean chopped parsley out of my dental brackets, especially during lunches with my colleagues! My teeth would probably look like the hanging gardens of Babylon. With clear aligners, I can eat what I want, whenever I want. Which brings me to my next point:
One thing that my orthodontist recommended to do is flossing and brushing my teeth after every meal before putting my transparent aligners back on. That means that in addition to teeth brushing at night and in the morning, I additionally brush them 2-3 times a day. It's not a big sacrifice in comparison with wearing metal brackets and use special brushes for teeth cleaning, or to be shy sharing a meal with people in public places.
I have to admit that I used to drink the occasional Coca-Cola or two a day. But since wearing my eon aligners, I reduced my intake of the fizzy drinks significantly because my orthodontist told me to remove my aligners every time while eating or drinking any non-clear drinks. So, the surprising benefit I got while wearing my aligners: I have managed to lose a few inches around my waistline.
Well, my journey with eon Aligners is not over yet. However, I feel myself very optimistic about future results, as my orthodontist shown me the video how my teeth would rotate in the beginning, and how many sets of eon Aligners I need. So, I'm following the steps, still eating the food I like and getting a few healthy habits with my aligners experience. I'm also happy the braces are transparent, so I feel confident as an adult because nobody can notice that I'm wearing eon Aligners. I hope the advantages I've mentioned, and my overall orthodontic experience will help you to make the right choice.
