Your Preferred Provider for Invisalign in Chicago
Invisalign is an alternative to braces that straightens your teeth without the typical bands, brackets, or wires. Forget everything you knew before about how to straighten teeth. Invisalign uses proven technology which gives you a straight smile without anyone noticing!
How does it do this? Invisalign uses aligner trays which are similar to retainers. They are made of a flexible, clear material that is customized and molded to fit your mouth. When you put it on your teeth, it fits snugly over them. These aligners will shift your teeth slightly and gradually, applying force as needed and where it’s needed, until your teeth used to the new positioning. About every two to four weeks or so, you will get a new set of aligners that will love your teeth slightly again, until you reach your ideal smile.
Benefits of Invisalign
● One of the largest benefits of Invisalign is that it isn’t painful, unlike braces. It’s a much more gradual process, so you will not feel the discomfort typically associated with braces.
● Another benefit is that since Invisalign aligners are invisible and molded to your teeth, it is much less noticeable. It’s made of clear material, so very few will notice that you are wearing it, unlike with braces, where it’s very obvious.
● Last, you won’t have to restrict any foods from your diet. With braces, there are many of foods that you are unable to enjoy. With Invisalign, you remove your Invisalign retainer whenever you eat, so you are allowed to eat anything that you were eating previously.
Essentially this allows you to continue with your normal eating habits.
