Why many patients choose Invisalign to enhance the smile and realign the teeth
While traditional metal bracket-and-wire braces are a great way to realign the teeth, they are not the only option. Teeth straightening has come a long way since conventional orthodontia, and now patients seeking a less noticeable method of improving the smile will want to discuss the benefits of a treatment known as Invisalign. At Eco-Friendly Dentistry in Oak Lawn, Illinois, our team is pleased to offer Invisalign as an alternative to conventional straightening methods recommended by orthodontists.
What is Invisalign?
Dr. Ahmed Mataria, Dr. Suh, and Dr. Santos of Eco-Friendly Dentistry describe Invisalign as a way of realigning the teeth using clear aligner trays instead of brackets and wires. Patients wear their customized trays for two weeks before moving on to the next, allowing the teeth to gradually reposition into their proper places. Invisalign trays are made of clear plastic and are extremely thin, fitting precisely over the dental arch and practically indistinguishable from the teeth. Invisalign aligners are to be worn for at least 20 hours a day and can be removed for brushing and flossing.
Why might I consider teeth straightening using invisible braces?
Invisalign may be a good option for you if you’re considering teeth straightening. Invisalign is a unique treatment that utilizes clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Because the aligners are nearly invisible, people won’t even know you’re wearing them.
You may want to consider Invisalign over traditional braces for several reasons. First, you can remove Invisalign aligners, so you can eat and drink whatever you want without worrying about damaging your braces. You can also brush and floss your teeth normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
Another benefit of Invisalign is that it’s often more comfortable than traditional braces. The aligners put less pressure on your teeth and gums, making you less likely to experience discomfort.
