Braces have long been used to correct a multitude of oral imperfections. While braces are still utilized by many people of all ages to get a straight smile, advancing technology has introduced Invisalign into the mix as well. Invisalign is a series of clear aligners gradually shift your teeth into the proper position. Our dentist in Skokie will provide you with a new set of trays once every 2-3 weeks depending on how fast your teeth are shifting.
What Problems Can Invisalign Treat?
You may be under the impression that Invisalign cannot fix the same problems that braces can, but this is not the case. Gaps, overbites, underbites, open bites, crowded teeth, or a need for generally straighter teeth are all treatable through Invisalign. If you have specific questions about your smile and whether or not Invisalign is the right choice for you, please schedule a consultation with our team.
One of the main complaints patients have about braces is that they cannot continue to eat the foods that they did before getting braces. Invisalign trays are removed while eating, allowing patients to indulge in all of their favorite foods. You also take our your trays while you are brushing and flossing your teeth, allowing you to reach areas of your mouth that you could not if you had braces.
Who says getting straight teeth has to be an uncomfortable process? While shifting teeth may make your mouth sore, you won’t have to deal with metal braces rubbing against your lips. Invisalign trays are smooth, and you will barely notice that you have them in!
Confidence is an important factor when it comes to deciding whether or not Invisalign is right for you. With braces, you may be embarrassed to flash a smile full of metal. But with Invisalign, the trays are subtle and hassle-free.
