Wanting straight, ordered teeth isn't just a vanity issue. In fact, research shows that straight teeth may have potential oral health benefits. For example, crooked teeth can be more difficult to clean, resulting in an increased risk of developing cavities and even gingivitis. Perhaps you've been investigating braces but don't want to invest in the conventional wired variety. At Patel Family Dental in DeKalb, IL, Dr. Sejal G. Patel, DDS and Dr. Frederick D. Peltz, DDS are specialized in providing Invisalign, or clear, "invisible" braces, for patients who wish to straighten their teeth with minimal alteration in their overall appearance.
Benefits of Invisalign
Aside from the fact that invisible braces work just as well as conventional braces, it should be noted that Invisalign offers some additional benefits to users. Adults, for instance, enjoy this teeth straightening option as it provides an approach that doesn't affect appearance or day-to-day activities. Additional benefits include:
- Custom fit, providing improved comfort during wear
- Clear and invisible, offering improved quality of life and self esteem
- No food restrictions
If you have mild to moderate spacing or crowding of your teeth and are looking for a comfortable, easier-to-manage approach to teeth straightening, then you may want to check out Invisalign. Our team at Patel Family Dental will assess your situation to determine if this option is right for you. For this orthodontic treatment, we utilize a computer program that allows us to generate multiple aligners, each aligner featuring small alterations that enable efficient and effective straightening.
