Spark Clear Aligners and 7 Brooklyn Lifestyles

One of the biggest questions we get from patients is how their braces or clear aligner treatment will change their day-to-day. This is an especially common question from our adult patients.​​ That’s why Dr. Khanna and the Fresh Orthodontics team have put together this list of seven Brooklyn lifestyles, highlighting how an orthodontic treatment like Spark™ Clear Aligners will integrate into these different routines. Spoiler alert: you’ll find them quite easy and convenient!

1. The Busy Park Slope Mom or Dad

Our immediate community of Park Slope is known for its family-friendly and community-oriented vibe. Here, moms and dads with hectic schedules are all about multitasking, managing home and careers, self-care and community participation.

For many busy parents, orthodontic treatment should disrupt life as little as possible, and that is why Spark Clear Aligners is appealing — it’s a seamless solution that doesn’t change your daily schedule that much. One of the most significant benefits of clear aligners is their near-invisibility, making them less noticeable during school runs and work meetings than braces. Plus, you don’t have to modify your eating habits (unless you’re also trying to eat healthier, in which case, we say go for it!) since you simply remove your clear aligners when eating or drinking anything other than water. Lastly, easy maintenance of clear aligners means your oral hygiene routine remains almost the same.

2. The Work-From-Home Creative

Are you a work-from-home creative? These days, you’ll find many Brooklyn creatives enjoying the flexibility of working from their home offices or studios. Spark aligners fit perfectly into this relaxed yet productive lifestyle. With their renowned comfort and less frequent orthodontist visits than traditional braces, clear aligner treatment like Spark Clear Aligners allows you to focus on your projects. You also don’t have to worry about clients and collaborators getting distracted by your braces on Zoom when you’re presenting work or joining a meeting.

3. The Side Gig Musician

Brooklyn has a lively music scene and is an inspiring place for musicians to live and play. However, traditional braces can be an issue for musicians, especially for those who play wind or brass instruments or sing. In these cases, Spark Clear Aligners are an appealing alternative to braces. They’re less likely to hinder musical performance and less irritating to the inside of your mouth. The ability to remove your teeth straightening appliance also can allow for better sound control and comfort during rehearsals or performances.

4. The C-Suite Executive

For the C-suite executive commuting between Brooklyn and Manhattan, efficiency and appearances are high on the priority list when it comes to choosing between braces vs. clear aligners. As your orthodontist in Brooklyn, we consider Spark Clear Aligners an ideal option because clear aligners are less noticeable than traditional metal braces, preserving your professional image.

Spark aligners require minimal maintenance, which is ideal for executives and corporate professionals on a tight schedule. Clear aligners also require fewer check-in visits to the orthodontist, meaning less time away from the office.

5. The Foodie

It’s no secret that Brooklyn is a hotbed of must-try restaurants, cafes, and food purveyors. The Fresh Orthodontics team thinks food lovers will be drawn to Spark Clear Aligners for straightening their teeth. Why? First, the necessity of removing the aligners during meals facilitates uninterrupted enjoyment of Brooklyn’s diverse culinary offerings—from comforting Taiwanese dumplings in Williamsburg to Mediterranean-influenced dishes with a view in DUMBO. With clear aligner treatment, you don’t need to worry about the food do’s and don’ts associated with traditional braces.

6. The Sports and Fitness Enthusiast

For fitness and sports enthusiasts, Spark Clear Aligners take the worry out of damaging your teeth straightening appliance when you’re active. Whether it’s a yoga session in Prospect Park, a bike ride across Brooklyn, or rec league soccer, clear aligners offer durability and comfort without the risk of injury that metal braces might pose when you’re working out or participating in sports. And removing them means you can continue to consume those often-needed electrolyte drinks or energy bars.

7. The Social Media Content Creator

Brooklyn’s distinct urban charm offers neverending inspiration for digital content. And it’s not a stretch to say that your appearance — including straight teeth and an appealing smile — can be everything for social media content creators. Spark Clear Aligners offer a barely visible treatment that can significantly enhance your on-camera confidence. Unlike braces, which might distract followers or impact your speech clarity, Spark aligners are so clear they’re hardly noticeable and fit so snug against your teeth that your speech remains normal.
