Invisalign for teens and adults in Libertyville, IL
Straightening crooked or otherwise misaligned teeth is common in teens, but sometimes adults need it too. At Arpino Orthodontics, we understand that when you want to improve the positioning of your teeth and the look of your smile, whether you’re in high school or you have a child in high school, you want to do it safely, effectively, and comfortably. But what about how I’ll look, you might be thinking. At our Libertyville Invisalign dental office, we’re pleased to offer you a solution that sets aside the cosmetic concerns of traditional metal braces and the associated criss-crossing wires and brackets.
Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that does a fantastic job of repositioning your teeth, while also offering you many benefits. Chief among those is that it’s nearly undetectable to the eye, unless someone is right up close (and even then, it’s far from obvious). Teens in particular can feel very self-conscious about wearing braces. In the school environment, looking different can cause social challenges. But at our Libertyville Invisalign dental office, we have a solution for that. During the process of re-aligning your teeth, you will wear between 12 and 48 aligners, each for about two weeks as it serves its role. You wear your aligner all day and all night, even while you sleep. It is taken out only to brush, floss, and eat. Oh, and that means no annoying food restrictions. Adults and teens alike will celebrate that. Other advantages of Invisalign include that it’s comfortable to wear. Unlike metal braces, it won’t dig into your gums.
Your aligners will be created using advanced 3-D computer technology. Each aligner is designed for a precise fit. Is it the right choice for you? The way to find out is to schedule an examination and consultation. Most people are good candidates for Invisalign. You’ll be able to have all of your questions answered. Teens may be skeptical, but the truth is that Invisalign will give them the straighter teeth that will instill them with greater confidence and do it without a penance to pay in the form of wearing a mouth full of metal for an extended period of time.
