Invisalign in Chicago

Making the choice to straighten your teeth affects not only your appearance, but your lifestyle. As an adult, you may look to Invisalign to improve your smile for business and social reasons, or for a special occasion, such as your wedding day. A teen or a parent of a teen may look to Invisalign as an efficient and effective solution as opposed to metal braces. Dental Professionals of Lincoln Park provide Invisalign services in Chicago that administer a simple way to accomplish your teeth-straightening goals without having to put your life on hold.

Benefits for Adults

As an adult, it is understandable that metal braces are not a choice you are willing to consider, even for straighter teeth. Invisalign provides an easy solution that offers convenience and the flexibility to continue on with your life without the hassle associated with other types of treatment. The invisible plastic that Invisalign aligners are made of make it almost impossible to notice that there is anything on your teeth. You do not need to feel self-conscious about how you look because it is barely noticeable. There are no irritating brackets or wires to worry about and no food restrictions, so you can maintain your normal eating habits. You do not have to go to the doctor as often for check-ins, Invisalign fits conveniently into your busy schedule. Invisalign also allows you to continue to brush and floss as normal because the aligners are removable, making it possible for you to maintain your oral hygiene.

How Can Invisalign in Chicago Help my Children?

Teens today are facing many challenges when it comes to their self-esteem. The Invisalign Teen Confidence Survey helps display how metal braces are a major cause of low self-esteem for teens across the country and why Invisalign clear aligners are the right choice over braces. Here are the truths:

  1. When it comes to wearing metal braces, 92 percent of teens feel that it would keep them from fitting in with their peers.
  2. Teens wearing Invisalign clear aligners are two times more likely to have a boost in self-esteem while in treatment than teens that have metal braces.
  3. In the hands of a trained professional, Invisalign can be just as effective as metal braces.
  4. Invisalign cost about the same as metal braces and are included under most dental insurance policies.
  5. Teens wearing Invisalign are 68 percent less likely to be teased than those wearing metal braces.
  6. Orthodontists tell us that teens are more reliable in wearing the aligners than adults are, they are wearing their aligners for 21 hours per day, just as recommended.

Promotes Self-Confidence for Teens

Invisalign Teen aligners are made of smooth, clear plastic that is basically invisible. Most people will not even notice you are wearing them. You do not need to be afraid to smile with a mouth full of metal braces because your Invisalign is barely noticeable. Metal braces can be restricting on your diet, with your dental professional advising you not to chew gum or eat popcorn and whole apples. Invisalign is completely removable and allows you to eat any food you want whenever you want. You can also easily brush and floss your teeth to keep up with oral hygiene. Metal braces can hold you back from playing sports or a musical instrument, it is hard to perform at your best when you are afraid of getting hit in the mouth with a ball or cut your lip trying to hit the right note while playing the trumpet. Invisalign allows you to do all of your favorite activities worry free.
