Your teeth may not be naturally straight, but no one has to know Big Smile Dental intervened to correct those crooked chompers. Think of Invisalign as a modern-day alternative to traditional braces.
Conventional braces were as obvious as they were uncomfortable, what with their metal wires and brackets. The power of straightening with Invisalign comes from plastic trays designed to fit your mouth. This custom design assures patient comfort and precise straightening. One of the complaints long associated with conventional braces is that the metal rubs up against delicate tissues. The aligners’ smooth plastic reduces the discomfort and irritation caused by hard, rigid wires and brackets.
Arguably one of the biggest benefits of Invisalign is you get some respite from straightening. Unlike fixed braces, Invisalign trays may be removed for eating and cleaning. It is recommended that these aligners be worn for at least 20 to 22 hours daily. Not wearing the aligners as prescribed by Big Smile Dental can jeopardize the effectiveness of treatment.
The ability to brush and floss freely without wires and brackets getting in the way also eliminates potential setbacks caused by poor hygiene during orthodontic treatment. Do you remember friends or family members who struggled to keep up with proper brushing and flossing because it was such a challenge to clean conventional, fixed braces?
They may have experienced additional problems during orthodontic treatment caused by poor oral hygiene. These problems transcend crooked teeth and bite issues, and include tooth decay and tooth loss.
Big Smile Dental wants to assure you have the best experience possible. Another benefit of Invisalign is no one else needs to know you are straightening. Since the aligners are clear, your secret is safe with us. You don’t feel self-conscious and anxious that everyone is staring at your orthodontics.
Childhood decay or habits such as thumb sucking may have caused your teeth to grow in crooked. Perhaps a less-than-perfect bite is in your genes. Whatever the case may be, you can achieve straight teeth in Chicago. A straighter smile has never been easier to get, thanks to modern orthodontic treatments like Invisalign.
