Some adults never consider getting braces because they worry about drawing negative attention to their teeth, or they might worry about the discomfort of having braces tightened. Still others might be concerned about how long treatment with traditional braces can take.
Thankfully, traditional metal braces aren’t the only option for you to consider. At Mount Prospect Smiles Dr. Avanti Sanghavi offers a revolutionary service known as Invisalign. With this service, patients can receive discreet cosmetic care that yields stunning results.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Unlike braces that rely on metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses custom-made plastic trays. Each tray is perfectly clear and designed specifically for your smile by Dr. Avanti Sanghavi and the Invisalign lab.
When you receive your Invisalign kit, you’ll wear each tray in it for about two weeks before moving on to the next one. As you move from one tray to another, your teeth will be brought closer to their ideal position. What’s more, there’s absolutely nothing to tighten and Dr. Avanti Sanghavi will only need to see you at her dental office periodically to check on your progress.
The Many Benefits of Invisalign
The most obvious benefits of Invisalign are that it’s discreet and uses trays instead of unattractive brackets and wire. But there’s even more for you to love about Invisalign.
Besides using clear trays, Invisalign lets you eat what you want and makes it easy to brush and floss. That’s because your Invisalign trays are removable for meals and for your daily oral health routine. You never have to give up on the foods you love just because you’re straightening your smile, and the absence of brackets and wires will make it easier to keep your teeth clean.
Compare this to treatment with traditional braces. Some foods you have to avoid completely, either because they can get caught in your braces or because they can physically damage them. Likewise, with brushing and flossing, it can be difficult to get your smile completely clean. As a result, you’re more vulnerable to cavities and gum disease.
