If you have misaligned or crooked teeth, you aren’t alone. However, it can be embarrassing to smile or laugh, but it can also make it harder to clean the teeth properly. The risks from improper cleaning can include gum damage, tooth loss, bone damage and periodontal diseases. Therefore, it’s necessary to straighten those teeth by wearing braces. However, most people dislike the annoyance of wearing them, because they can’t eat whatever they want and have to clean them all the time. They can also be painful when they are adjusted. However, there is another option. Invisalign braces in Lincoln Park are a variation of traditional metal ones and can offer many benefits over traditional options.
Clear braces have an added benefit that allows you to remove them when you need to. This means you can take them out to brush your teeth and take them out overnight when sleeping. It can be a lot more comfortable to remove them when you need to instead of trying to clean around them or having them in all hours of the day and night.
Because you won’t have large amounts of metal in your mouth, and the braces are clear, you will have a nicer appearance while your teeth are being fixed and repositioned. While they can be slightly noticeable, they are much less so than traditional metal, and you won’t have to worry about food being caught between the metal pieces.
Because metal braces can contain protruding metal bits and wire, they can scratch and puncture the teeth and gums. This can be somewhat problematic, but with clear braces, you won’t have to worry about punctures and scratches. They are completely smooth and comfortable to wear and won’t include protruding edges or sharp edges.
Most teens and adults will have to wear traditional metal braces for up to five years, which is an incredibly long time to deal with the hassle and discomfort. However, Invisalign braces in Lincoln Park will only take up to one year of treatment, though it could take up to a year and half total. That is over half the time for the same treatment.
Because everything is computerized, there are no surprises and problems. You’ll know exactly how long you’ll be wearing them and what to expect throughout the situation.
