Very few people are born with what will eventually be a perfect smile. Having to live with unsightly teeth, teeth that are crooked or misaligned can really have a detrimental effect on a person’s self confidence. In the past, people that wanted to straighten their teeth really only had one solution and that was to be fitted with metal braces. Metal braces are still popular today but more and more patients are turning to the new alternative; Invisalign in Gold Coast Chicago. For those not comfortable with wearing braces, they can now opt for a series of unique plastic aligners that are almost invisible.
Let’s look at the benefits of Invisalign over conventional braces:
Practically invisible: Of all the benefits this is the most obvious. As Invisalign aligners are made from a special dental grade clear plastic they are very hard to see while they are being worn. This feature is especially of benefit to adults that are often involved with the public.
Easy to remove: Although you must wear your Invisalign in Gold Coast Chicago at least 22 hours a day, for 2 hours you can take them off. This feature makes brushing and flossing so much easier than it is when braces are fitted. The fact that you can remove them at will also means you do not have to eliminate any of your favorite food out of your diet.
Comfortable: Invisalign are very smooth, there are no sharp edges as there is with metal braces. There is no feat that the inside of your mouth or your lips will be cut.
Fewer visits to the dentist: Invisalign is a system; you will wear a new aligner every two weeks. If your program is set to last one year, you will get 26 different aligners; each one gently moves your teeth to the desired position. You can make the changes at home, with braces you have to return to the dentist for frequent adjustments and tightening.
There are many advantages to the Invisalign system, the cost is comparable to metal braces and there sure is a lot less aggravation. When the program is over you will be left with a smile that you can be proud of.
