In the not too distant past, if you had crooked or misaligned teeth you only had one option; metal braces. This is no longer the case, fortunately for many patients a new solution is available; Invisalign. Invisalign in Chicago are clear plastic aligners that are comfortable and discrete. Although Invisalign aligners are not suitable for every patient, if your dentist deems that you are a good candidate there are numerous benefits over traditional braces.

   * Comfort: Once metal braces have been fitted they are kept in place until the treatment has been completed, this can last two years or more in some cases. Invisalign aligners can be taken out for up to two hours a day, this allows the wearer to eat properly and clean their teeth without problems.

   * Safety: Traditional metal braces contain brackets and wires that can cause irritation to the gums and the inside of the mouth. Invisalign aligners are smooth, comfortable moldings; they do not have any sharp edges or protrusions that can cause injury.

   * Treatment length: With Invisalign in Chicago you know from the outset exactly how long the process will take. You will be given a series of aligners, every two weeks the one you are using is discarded and the next one in sequence is used; two weeks later the process is done again. The quantity of aligners that are needed to correct the problem are known in advance as the program is determined by a complex computer program.

   * Invisibility: As the name implies, Invisalign are virtually invisible when worn. This benefit is especially important to those that want to correct the alignment of their teeth but they are reluctant to wear very noticeable metal braces.

Although Invisalign in Chicago may be marginally more expensive than traditional metal braces it is a price well worth paying. Invisalign are comfortable, safe and discrete and you will see your new smile faster.

If you are unhappy with your smile because of crooked teeth you should ask a dentist about the possibility of wearing Invisalign in Chicago. You are invited to make an appointment with Dental Professionals of Lincoln Park.
