Thanks to modern dental technology, having straight teeth is a goal within your reach. Many people looking for straighter teeth turn to traditional braces to help them achieve their smile goals. However, metal braces are not an ideal option for everyone. Many adults do not want to use traditional braces because of their appearance or the amount of time they must wear them. Some just associate traditional braces with those awkward teenage years. Thankfully, Dr. Mazar Shuaipaj and our amazing Alsip Dental Center team offer another option. This fantastic treatment option is called Invisalign. Invisalign straightens teeth without the use of traditional wires and brackets. It’s also quick and effective. There are other advantages to choosing Invisalign which include:
- Time | Invisalign can straighten teeth more quickly than traditional braces. In some cases, Invisalign straightens teeth in just six months. Compared to traditional braces, which must often be worn for about two years, Invisalign is downright speedy.
- Appearance | Invisalign is made of a high-quality, clear material that’s strong enough to gently straighten your teeth while appearing nearly invisible to those around you. Because it is a clear straightening system, you don’t have to worry about how others will perceive you while your teeth are being straightened.
- Convenience | Invisalign is a convenient form of teeth straightening because the aligner trays are removable. This means that when you want to brush or floss, it’s as simple as removing your Invisalign aligners, cleaning your teeth, and popping the aligners back in. Eating is also easier, with no dietary restrictions because you take the aligners out when you eat. It also means that if you have an important social occasion, you can take your Invisalign aligners out for your event, and return to straightening your teeth afterward!
