Straightening Your Teeth With Invisalign

The majority of the misaligned, protruding, or crooked teeth problems that people have can be corrected using Invisalign. Fast becoming the alternative to traditional orthodontic solutions, it can effectively move teeth to the right position in a short time.

If you’re interested in this novel orthodontia procedure, you can consult with Dr. Samia Rageb Hempel here at Parkview Smiles in the Chicago Loop, IL, if Invisalign will work for you. In the meantime, here’s how Invisalign straightens your teeth.

How Invisalign Works to Give You a Straight Smile

How can a simple-looking plastic aligner tray be as effective as traditional orthodontia at moving your teeth? Basically, wearing a series of aligner trays is what makes the Invisalign treatment efficient. Molded from computer imaging software, Invisalign is designed to predict the movement of your teeth. Using advanced technology, each set of plastic tray aligners is designed to move your teeth to a specific location within a particular timeframe.

Every set of aligner trays builds on the gains of the previous set. This is why it is extremely important to wear your aligner trays for the duration specified by your dentist in the Chicago loop if you want to get the results that you need within the target treatment period.

How Long Will It Take for The Invisalign Treatment to Work?

Many factors must be considered to provide an accurate assessment of how long you will be on the Invisalign treatment, according to your Chicago Loop dental team. You need to take a look at the condition of your bite as well as the status of your teeth. You also have to take into account that every condition is unique.

Adults on average can complete the Invisalign treatment anywhere from one to two years at the most. This is, of course, considering that you wear your aligner trays about 20 to 22 hours daily for the entire treatment. So consistency and discipline will play a huge role in how fast the Invisalign treatment will work for you.

Compared to other teeth straightening treatments, Invisalign is perhaps the easiest to use. This is part of the reason why it remains the top choice for those who want to straighten their teeth. Being virtually painless, comfortable, and non-invasive, it is easy to understand why Invisalign is one of the top choices.
