Clear braces may be the answer if you are tired of living with your less than perfect smile. With clear braces, those two crooked teeth or that gap that has been driving you crazy for years will be history.
Invisalign® is the solution for slightly tipped, crooked, rotated, or gappy teeth. In less than two years, you can have a beautiful new smile without wearing uncomfortable wires and brackets.
What is Invisalign®?
According to Chicago Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi, Invisalign® is a patented system that uses clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into position. Depending on your customized clear braces plan, you will be given anywhere between 11 and 31 sets of comfortable aligners that you will swap out every seven to 14 days. Every time you wear a new set of aligners, you are one-step closer to the perfect smile.
What is the Invisalign® Treatment Plan?
Regardless of your prescription, you will need to wear your braces 20 to 22 hours every day. The only time you remove your invisible aligners is when you eat, brush, and floss your teeth. Because Invisalign® is removable, you will not be as susceptible to tooth decay or gum disease. Wires and brackets are attached to your teeth making you more prone to oral problems, as it is impossible to clean under the braces.
Advantages of Invisalign®
More Attractive-Invisalign® looks better than wires and brackets. Unlike conventional wires, the only person that will know you are wearing braces is Dr. Ivan and his team from his cosmetic dental practice in Chicago. Invisalign® is nearly invisible.
Comfort-Because your aligners are removable, unlike conventional wires and brackets that must stay in place for the duration of the treatment, you can remove them when you like. However, you must wear your aligners between 20 to 22 hours every day; otherwise, you will delay your progress.
Safety-Clear braces reduce the risk of gum and teeth damage. Conventional braces can scratch or even puncture your gums, the inside of your mouth or your tongue. Clear braces are made from comfortable and safe plastic that reduces damage that is usually caused by metal braces, including tooth decay and gum disease.
Treatment Duration-The average Invisalign® treatment is between 12 and 18 months, however, some of Dr. Ivan’s patients have seen results in less time. Old school wires and brackets can take up to two years or longer.
