What do you think about the alignment and appearance of your teeth when you look in the mirror? Many patients want to improve their smiles by straightening their teeth, but they don’t want to go through the discomfort of wearing traditional braces. Invisalign’s clear aligners offer an alternative that can straighten your smile without the need to wear wires and brackets.
Our team at Lisle Family Dentistry offers Invisalign – giving you access to a modern solution for a straight, beautiful smile. Request an appointment today for a consultation with our Invisalign dentist to see if they are right for you.
Do you find that you often hold back a smile because you are self-conscious about what other people will think when they see your teeth? Then you should consider Invisalign’s clear aligners as a way to improve the overall appearance of your smile.
This dental treatment uses invisible aligners to move your teeth into the ideal position. You might be a good candidate if you have minor to moderate misalignment and you don’t want to wear metal brackets and wires. Invisalign offers a discreet solution for straightening the smile and boosting your self-confidence at the same time.
With the Invisalign system, you receive custom-designed trays that fit over your teeth. These invisible aligners, which are like invisible braces, are created in a specific series, moving your teeth closer and closer to the desired position over time. You wear each tray for a predetermined amount of time before switching out for the next tray in the series.
One of the most significant advantages of Invisalign is that you can remove the invisible aligners when you want to enjoy a meal. That will allow you to eat all of your favorite foods without limitations. Plus, you can skip the need to visit the orthodontist to tighten wires and braces every few weeks.
Since the trays are clear, they are virtually invisible while in your mouth. Also, you can talk to other people throughout the day, wearing your invisible aligners at work and in social activities.
Your out-of-pocket expenses for Invisalign are similar to the cost of traditional braces. The overall cost varies from patient to patient, depending on the complexity of your case and how long you will need to wear the aligners. By scheduling a consultation with our Invisalign dentist, you will know all the information you need to get the smile you desire.
These clear trays are simple to clean. When you remove them from your mouth to brush your teeth or eat a meal, simply use a toothbrush and toothpaste, then rinse them in warm water. Never put Invisalign trays in hot water because the high temperature might warp the plastic.
These aligners are designed with your comfort in mind, and many patients find them much more comfortable compared to traditional metal braces. Fair warning: you might experience minor discomfort when using a new aligner set in the first few days.
