Chicago IL Dental Explains Invisalign, Clear Aligners to Enhance Your Smile
Dentistry has dramatically advanced and has given patients the smile that they’ve always wanted for many years. Technology has provided for patients of all ages the ability to have a healthy, strong smile in ways that we may not have thought possible! One of the most progressive areas of dentistry has been orthodontics, where patients used to have to wear large amounts of metal around their heads to have an improved smile. But today, your Chicago IL dental discusses Invisalign, a simple but improved way to straighten your teeth.
Braces have been the traditional way being used by patients who want a straighter smile. Their treatment requires wires and brackets, difficulty eating, and a longer treatment time. With Invisalign, patients don’t have to worry about the way their smile looks with braces because they won’t have to wear them! The aligners are clear, barely visible, and don’t change the way your smile feels.
With these aligners, patients have to wear them for a majority of your day, averaging about 20-22 hours a day. You can even wear them in your sleep! The only time that patients take their aligners off is when they want to eat and when they want to brush their teeth. They work slowly over time, but the treatment period is much shorter than if a patient were to wear traditional metal braces.
No two treatment plans are the same! These aligners are custom-made to fit over your teeth and shift them slowly over a period of time into the smile that they’ve dreamed of!
