Having a big Hollywood smile can help you look and feel great. However, for many people, getting to that point takes some help from an invisalignorthodontist. Luckily, straightening your teeth no longer requires traditional metal brackets and wires. With Invisalign, you can straighten your smile discreetly, eat the foods you love, and more. Learn more about Invisalign with your dentist at All Smiles in Worth, IL.

How does Invisalign work? 
Rather than using traditional metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic and comfortable aligner trays. Patients wear each tray in the series for about two weeks. Worn one after the other until the end of treatment, the trays place pressure onto the teeth to slowly move them into their new positions. Most Invisalign treatments last about a year though the length of treatment varies from patient to patient.

Why choose Invisalign over traditional braces?

  • Removable: Invisalign’s trays are completely removable. This means that, if necessary, patients may remove Invisalign for a big event like public speaking or prom. Traditional metal braces require wearers to avoid certain foods for fear of breaking or damaging the wires or brackets. Simply remove Invisalign’s trays before eating and enjoy all the foods that you love.
  • Appearance: Invisalign makes the term “brace face” a thing of the past. With virtually invisible trays, you can rest assured knowing that your look doesn’t have to change with your smile.
  • Easy Care: Traditional braces require the use of special threading floss and water picks to floss between and under every wire and bracket in your mouth. This time-consuming process may not fit well in your daily routine. However, Invisalign makes caring for your smile during orthodontic treatment easy. Simply remove Invisalign trays before brushing and flossing to keep your teeth healthy during treatment.
  • Know Your Results: Before beginning treatment, Invisalign’s laboratory sends your Worth dentist a video containing the route on which your teeth move during treatment. The video involves your final results. Traditional metal braces keep your end result a surprise.

Dentists recommend Invisalign for teens over the age of 12 and adults with a strong at-home oral care routine and a commitment to wearing their trays for at least 22 hours a day.
