As the inconspicuous alternative to metal braces, millions of people from around the world are turning to Invisalign as a hassle-free way to straighten their teeth. The dental office of Dr. James Maragos, located in LaGrange, IL, offers Invisalign to their patients, and the following information can help you determine if you're the right candidate for the treatment.
1. You Have Orthodontic Issues
Invisalign treatment improves the appearance of your smile by correcting different types of orthodontic issues including crooked, gapped, or overcrowded teeth as well as overbites and underbites. Invisalign works by using a series of custom-made aligners that gently and continuously move your teeth in small increments.
2. You're a Teen or an Adult
Invisalign is a great solution for teenagers and adults looking to straighten their smile discretely. Children, unfortunately, do not qualify
3. You Prefer Clear Braces
Wearing metal braces can be a difficult and emotional problem for many people, luckily, you can now straighten your crooked smile without a mouthful of metal. Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible—no one will even notice you’re wearing braces!
4. Comfort is Important to You
Invisalign aligners are made of a thermosoftening plastic material created exclusively for the treatment plan. The aligners are very comfortable to wear, so you will be able to wear them all day without effort. Traditional metal braces are an effective method of straightening teeth, but metal brackets and wires can be uncomfortable to wear.
5. You Want the Best Oral Health
One of the advantages of Invisalign is the ability to remove your aligners to floss and brush your teeth daily, a task much harder with traditional braces. Additionally, it's difficult to clean between teeth that are crooked or misaligned, increasing the chances of tooth decay and gum disease—straightening your smile can also result in better oral health.
