Want a way to correct your crooked teeth but hate the thought of wearing braces? Try Invisalign! Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic method for correcting crooked or misaligned teeth. It involves the use of clear, plastic aligners that are replaced every two weeks. The aligners are custom made, and gently work to correct the problem of crooked teeth. DeWitt Dentistry of Elmhurt, IL, under the direction of William E. DeWitt, DDS, can provide you with this treatment as part of their family dentistry plan.Invisalign
Benefits of Invasalign
There are several benefits of undergoing an Invisalign treatment. Dentists and orthodontists, alike, agree that oral health goes hand in hand with overall health. The greatest benefit, therefore, would be the health benefits that stem from having corrected, properly-aligned teeth. Teeth that are out of line often cause headaches, jaw discomforts and difficulties with speaking and eating. Crooked teeth can also lead to tooth decay and gum disease due to the fact that the teeth cannot be properly cleaned. Tooth decay and gum disease can lead to a host of health issues such as heart disease and cancer.
Other benefits of an Invisalign treatment include the following:
Convenience: Compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners can be easily removed for proper tooth cleaning.
Cosmetic: Aligners are invisible and look just as good as they work in transforming your smile.
Pain-free: Inviisalign aligners can be worn up to 24 hours and are virtually pain free.
No food restrictions: Unlike metal braces that have you watching what you eat, Invisalign aligners allow you to eat whatever you fancy.
Another tremendous advantage of Invisalign usage would be a boost in your self-image. Although braces have been around a while and have been seen by virtually everyone, there are still negative connotations that go along with having a heavy strip (or two) of metal in the mouth. Invisalign wearers gain confidence along with a beautiful smile.
