Traditional Braces vs. Invisalign

Published on October 18th, 2016

Invisalign has become a sought after alternative to traditional braces with many benefits that are worth the investment. It is important to learn about the many benefits and ensure that Invisalign is right for and fits your lifestyle. Dental Professionals of Lincoln Park provides invisalign in Lakeview where they provide more than an aesthetic improvement by not only making your teeth straighter and giving you the confidence to smile bigger, aligning your teeth help you bite, chew and speak more effectively. Straight teeth are also easier to keep clean, reducing cavities and gum disease. Click here to learn more about our services with invisalign in Lakeview.

Advantages of Invisalign

Traditional metal braces require you to get your wires tightened about every six weeks, depending on your teeth and treatment plan, and for those with little or no dental insurance, this can be extremely expensive. For Invisalign you receive new aligners many months ahead that you can replace every two weeks, making very limited trips to see your orthodontist because it is not necessary. Another benefit is no repairs for invisalign, if you lose or break your aligner it is easily replaceable. A bracket or wire can become loose in traditional braces, which force you to go back to the orthodontist and requires more money and time. Dental Professionals of Lincoln Park can ensure you will not need to make many trips back with our treatment plan for invisalign in Lakeview.

Invisalign allows you to maintain healthy oral hygiene. You are able to remove your aligner, brush and floss your teeth as your normally do and replace it in the morning and before you go to bed. Traditional metal braces are much harder to maintain, there are certain foods you need to avoid that can get stuck, there are special ways to brush to remove food and plaque from around the brackets and gum line to avoid gum disease and tooth decay. Also, at the end of your treatment you most likely need to get your teeth professionally whitened or cleaned to bring back your teeth’s natural coloring.

Other positives of invisalign include no food restrictions because you can take the aligner out at any time eat and put it back in once you are finished, it uses invisible material making those that wear it feel more confident and less self conscious, it is more comfortable with no wire tightening or bracket issues and does not affect your teeth or cheeks like metal braces can. Invisalign has many advantages and it is worth investing in if you want noticeable, positive results that will leave you smiling brighter and feeling more confident.

Dental Professionals of Lincoln Park have a skilled staff that provide invisalign in Lakeview and can help you reach the results you are looking to get. We can ensure your new smile will last a lifetime because we also encourage post-treatment care that includes wearing a retainer once your orthodontic treatment is complete. Ranging from our many services, including invisalign in Lakeview, we believe what you do after is just as important because teeth have a tendency to shift back into their original position and the proper use of a retainer will prevent this from happening. Dental Professionals of Lincoln Park wants you to always leave us flashing your beautiful smile knowing we helped your reach your results. Contact us today for more information on our services.
