The Benefits of Invisalign

If you’re considering straightening your teeth, chances are you’re not only looking for better oral health. You likely also want the boost in self-confidence that can come with knowing your smile is perfect and you don’t have to hide your crooked teeth anymore.

The question is, what’s the best way to get that great smile?

More than 9 million people have found that answer with Invisalign®. In most cases, the clear plastic aligners from Invisalign work as well or better than braces. With Invisalign, you get multiple sets of clear aligners, each set slightly adjusted, to take your teeth from the alignment you currently have to the smile of your dreams.

Read on to learn just a few of the benefits of Invisalign, courtesy of the expert team at Millennium Park Orthodontics in Chicago.

Easier to maintain

One of the biggest advantages Invisalign offers is ease of maintenance. You don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your brackets, wires randomly popping off to poke you in the cheek, or developing sores in your mouth from metal braces.

Because the aligners are removable, you just slip them off before you eat. And you just brush your teeth before reinstalling your aligners. Cleaning the trays is simple as well. You just brush them with your toothbrush in lukewarm water and mild dish soap.

Fewer office visits

With Invisalign, you’ll make fewer trips to your orthodontist than you would if you had traditional metal braces. Metal braces require frequent office visits to adjust wires and rubber bands. With Invisalign, you take home several weeks worth of trays at once and change them yourself every week or two.

You’ll pop into the office a few times during your treatment just to make sure everything is proceeding smoothly, but you won’t go in nearly as often as you would need to if you had traditional braces.

Less noticeable

One of the biggest reasons many people choose Invisalign is because the system is much more discreet than regular braces. Because the trays are clear and slim, most people won’t even know you’re wearing them unless you tell them.

Invisalign works great for people who prefer to stay out of the spotlight. Your dental treatment is your business, not the whole world’s.

Treats many dental issues

None of these reasons would mean anything if Invisalign didn’t give you a great smile. But, as mentioned earlier, the system works as well or better than braces in most cases. Invisalign can safely and effectively fix numerous dental issues, including the following:
