If you’re at all apprehensive about trying traditional metal wire and bracket braces for purposes of proper positioning of your teeth, you might be a suitable candidate for Invisalign clear plastic aligners. They’re not for children, but teens and adults love them. They do the same thing as conventional metal braces for many spacing and crowding issues, but they do it in half of the time without anybody ever knowing that you’re wearing them.
Customized for You
Invisalign aligners are sized for your mouth and teeth with state-of-the-art technology. Then, they’re custom-built for you and put in place at our offices. As your Invisalign does its job, your teeth are properly positioned. As they move, other Invisalign sets are put in place. They’re typically replaced every two weeks. You’ll return to the Invisalign Evanston dental clinic every four to six weeks, and your progress is tracked. Depending on the patient and their dental condition, the Invisalign process can take up to two years. It could be three years or more with conventional braces.
One of the advantages of Invisalign is it’s built to be removed for purposes of eating, brushing, flossing and cleaning. As opposed to people with regular braces, you can eat anything that you want.
The Comfort Factor
As opposed to metal braces, there are no wires to poke your gums, lips or cheeks. The feeling of Invisalign is entirely different than that of wearing metal braces.
You’d be surprised at how many people are suitable Invisalign candidates. Given Invisalign’s convenience and efficiency, they gain in popularity with our patients every day. If you don’t like the thought of metal braces, consider the Invisalign advantage, and give our Stephens Dentistry Invisalign Evanston dentists a call at 847-864-8151 for an examination and evaluation.
