Every smile tells a story, and we want yours to be a happy one. Maybe even an exciting one, featuring a superhero with teeth standing straight and tall in the face of adversity, with a smile so charming that your worst enemy is suddenly singing your praises and doing your bidding. Where would we start?
Well, every good superhero needs a magic cape that bestows amazing powers on its wearer. An invisible cape would be good, so no one would know about your transformation. It would give crooked tooth the power to stand up, turn around, and arrange themselves in a neat row. Maybe it could even zap that pesky overbite, for an infallible winning smile. If that sounds good to you, we have some great news – someone has already invented it, and named it Invisalign.
Invisalign is truly invisible orthodontics, straightening teeth with clear plastic aligners, and no metal. That is by far their most popular feature; most people just don’t consider metal braces a fashion statement (at least not a good one). However, this is only one of many benefits that Invisalign has to offer. Less talked about, but equally important, advantages include:
- Convenience – Metal braces are attached to your teeth, and they stay there until your dentist removes them. Invisalign aligners can be removed any time you need to eat, brush, pose for a photo, or replace it with a new tray.
- Comfort – Thin, flexible plastic vs. bulky metal that can be sharp if broken. You do the math.
- Food – Anyone who has worn traditional braces will tell you that their orthodontics came with a long list of forbidden foods. With Invisalign, you can eat anything you want.
- Oral health – Braces increase the time needed for oral hygiene, and the risk of getting cavities, because it is so difficult to get all of the food particles and plaque out from behind them. Invisalign gives you, and your dentist, free access to your teeth.
You’ve waited your entire life for a beautifully straight smile, and Invisalign leaves you no reason to wait any longer. Call Big Smile Dental at 773-772-8400 and schedule a consultation to find out if you are a good candidate.
