Invisalign involves a type of orthodontic treatment that can straighten teeth, close gaps or separate crowded teeth without the necessity of metal braces, wires, and brackets. Invisalign braces are made of clear plastic. They’re individually custom-fitted aligners that work day and night to shift a patient’s teeth into proper position. Many people have ruled out metal braces over the years simply because of the way that they look, but now, they’re wearing Invisalign. They’re more comfortable than metal braces, and users don’t experience the poking and irritation of the gums, cheeks, and lips that wearers of metal braces suffer through. With Invisalign, other people don’t even realize that the patient is wearing anything.
They’re Removed Every Day
Invisalign aligners snap in place over your teeth. You can remove them when eating, brushing your teeth, flossing and cleaning the aligners. Every two weeks, you put new aligners in place. They work to slowly and gradually align your teeth into proper position.
See Your Future Smile
Not everyone is a suitable candidate for Invisalign, but if you’re interested, all it takes is a dental exam and assessment for Invisalign in the South Loop. Afterward, you can make an informed decision on how you wish to proceed. With the 3D-imaging technology that Invisalign dentists use, you can even get a preview of how your smile will improve over the course of your treatment. That projection is a terrific incentive for anybody who is contemplating Invisalign.
You will be wearing your aligners for about 22 hours a day. After you begin your Invisalign treatment, you’ll need to visit the dentist once every six weeks or two months for purposes of monitoring your progress. Don’t wait to be examined and evaluated for the smile that you always wished you had.
