Are you suffering from a bite that’s misaligned? What about gapped teeth? Crooked teeth? Well, you might have already thought about getting yourself some braces at Urban Smiles Dental in Chicago. However, as an adult, there are quite a few reasons you may not want to go through with getting braces.
You might think you’re just too old to wear braces or you might hate the idea of having a mouth full of metal or ceramic. You could just hate the way it looks! No matter what your reasonings are for avoiding braces, there are other options for getting a beautiful smile here at Urban Smiles Dental.
Invisalign® is one of these options, and they sure are a great one. 3-D modeling and the advanced computer technology that’s available these days create aligners that will begin slowly adjusting your teeth from the position they’re currently in into a straight smile. That’s why in Chicago, it’s becoming a pretty popular option.
Just like the name suggests, they’re almost completely invisible in your mouth, so you don’t have to worry about the way your mouth looks while your teeth are getting straightened.
This isn’t the only reason for considering Invisalign® though! You’re also going to be saving yourself a lot of time. Normal braces are known for taking forever to work. You can cut four years of braces down to just nine to twelve months when you choose Invisalign®. It depends, of course, on how much work your mouth needs.
Wearing traditional braces are a full-time endeavor. They’re attached to your mouth using wires and braces. This is where Invisalign® stands out once more. You can take them out whenever you want. So, you’re not forced to eat with them, brush your teeth with them, or floss with them. Just remember that even if you can take them out, it doesn’t mean you should. Following your dentist’s recommendation is extremely important. Otherwise, you might not get the fastest, and most efficient treatment.
While having a gorgeous smile can build confidence and make you feel better, that’s not the only reason for straight teeth. They can also help you speak better, chew better, and feel better overall. Talk to your dentist about Invisalign® as an alternative to traditional braces.
