How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign® clear braces are customized for each patient so as to fit their individual needs. We’ll be able to map out and plan your course of treatment by using computers to design your Invisalign® treatment plan. This system doesn’t use embarrassing metal wires or brackets like traditional orthodontics do, so it’s possible to keep your dignity intact while improving your oral health.
What Can I Expect from Invisalign Treatment?
The correction will be gradual as you wear Invisalign® clear aligners. Your teeth will slowly shift into place during your course of treatment. The average time it takes to achieve end results with Invisalign® clear aligners varies, as each case is different. You’ll wear each set of aligners for 20-22 hours every day, taking them out only to brush, floss, eat, and drink. After about two weeks, your mouth will adjust to the current set of aligners and you’ll switch to the next set. This process will shift your pearly whites into place by using low-impact technology, which will save you the pain and discomfort of having to get your braces tightened, like with the traditional metal kind. Because the aligner trays are removable, you’ll be able to take out your Invisalign® clear aligners during meals, so you can eat whatever you like!
What Issues Does Invisalign® Address?
Invisalign® in Skokie allows you to achieve a straight smile with transparent technology. It’s often used to correct the orthodontic issues listed below as well.
When teeth are too close together, they can wear each other down and weaken your smile. They also create small spaces that are difficult to clean, which raises your risk of oral health issues like tooth decay and gum disease.
Spaces Between Teeth
Not only are gaps in your smile unattractive, but they also easily trap food debris, plaque, and bacteria. As these particles accumulate, they begin to cause bad breath, yellow teeth, and cavities.
Bite Alignment Issues
If your bite is misaligned, your jaw joints are exposed to too much pressure. Eventually, the stiffness and soreness can lead to complex issues like TMJ disorder. Thankfully, Invisalign can treat a variety of bite issues, including overbite, underbite, and crossbite.
Is Invisalign® Right for Me?
Invisalign® clear aligners are a big hit with adults and older teenagers, as it’s nearly impossible to tell if you’re wearing them. Your friends and coworkers might never know that you’re improving your smile until they see the fantastic results! Invisalign® clear aligners are also preferable to traditional metal braces because you’ll be able to retain your professional, grown up appearance.
How Much Does Invisalign® Cost?
No two smiles are exactly the same, and neither are any two Invisalign® treatments. Your unique needs will determine the cost of your treatment. Some of those factors include your age, the severity of your case, and whether or not you wear your aligners for a long enough time every day. During your consultation, your Skokie cosmetic dentist will closely examine your mouth and discuss your smile goals to give you a more personalized estimate.
What Happens If I Don’t Straighten My Teeth?
It’s important to receive the orthodontic care your mouth may need. Many problems with bites and alignment can complicate other aspects of your oral health over the years. Tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease can all develop if you allow your teeth to remain uncorrected. It’s a clear choice; Invisalign® clear aligners can save your smile before it’s compromised by other issues.
