The Benefits Of Invisalign

There is nothing new about wanting perfectly aligned teeth and a beautiful smile, but there is something new in the way dentists approach getting these results. The most significant advancement in orthodontics is by far the introduction of Invisalign in Chicago. Since Invisalign was first introduced over 17 years ago more than three million patients worldwide have used it to straighten and align their teeth.

Invisalign has numerous benefits over traditional metal braces:

Comfort and aesthetics:

Invisalign aligners are produced from a smooth, clear plastic material; they are extremely comfortable to wear. Traditional braces have wires and brackets that can abrade the inside of your mouth and cut your tongue and lips, this is not an issue with Invisalign. As suggested by the name, Invisalign is virtually invisible, this is a wonderful plus point for those who are concerned about their appearance or are self conscious about wearing braces. Traditional braces, once fitted, are there for the duration of the treatment plan; Invisalign aligners can be removed while eating and cleaning.

Dental hygiene:

It can be extremely difficult to clean teeth that are fitted with metal braces; as a result there is a real chance of decay taking hold. As Invisalign in Chicago can be removed for a couple of hours a day it is far easier to brush and floss; there are no special tools required as there is with conventional braces. Cleaner teeth equal less staining and less decay.

Realigning the teeth:

When braces are used to realign teeth it is necessary to visit the dentist and have him or her tighten the wires, this happens about every six to eight weeks. The Invisalign in approach is very different. At the beginning of the process a complete set of aligners are produced, every two weeks a new one is used. Through slight pressure, the teeth are slowly realigned.

Invisalign in Chicago is a revolutionary way to straighten and align teeth. If you are unhappy with your smile, the solution is waiting for you at Dental Professionals of Lincoln Park.
