Invisalign Trematment in Worth, IL

Are you considering visiting All Smiles in Worth, IL for Invisalign? Invisalign is a fantastic tooth straightening method that many Worth, IL residents are using with great success. Here are four things you need to consider when determining if Invisalign is right for you.Clear Aligners

1. When Do You Want a Beautiful Smile?

Both traditional metal braces and Invisalign will give you an amazing smile - the difference is how long it will take until you can reap the benefits. With traditional metal braces, you have to suffer through a mouth full of metal while you wait. Invisalign aligners from All Smiles in Worth, IL are practically invisible, however, so you don't have to make your smile look worse before it looks better.

2. How Crooked Are Your Teeth?

For extremely crooked teeth, you may want to choose metal braces, which have been shown to be slightly more effective. If your teeth are only a little crooked, however, Invisalign is a great option to get them in line.

3. Are You Committed to Wearing Your Aligners?

In order for your Invisalign aligners to work, you have to commit to wearing them approximately 18 to 22 hours a day. Are you sure you can keep this up? Forget to wear your aligners or cheat on your time and your teeth can start moving back into their original positions fairly quickly. If there's a chance you might not wear them enough, traditional metal braces may be the best way to go.

4. Can You Keep Track of Your Aligners?

Furthermore, are you the forgetful or responsible type? If you are constantly losing things, you may want to opt for traditional metal braces, which can't be lost since you never take them out of your mouth.

While many All Smiles patients choose and love Invisalign, whether traditional metal braces or Invisalign aligners are right for you is a question only you and your dentist can answer. Call All Smiles in Worth, IL and set up an appointment for an Invisalign consultation today!
