Invisalign Vs Traditional Braces

How Invisalign from your dentist in Chicago Loop, IL, can give you the straight smile you deserve

The world of orthodontics has changed. Now, there is a much easier, more comfortable way to achieve a straight smile. It’s called Invisalign, and it can work wonders on your smile. Best of all, you don’t need to see a specialist. Your dentist is an expert at Invisalign.

Dr. Samia Rageb Hempel at Park View Smiles, in Chicago Loop, IL, offers a wide range of dental services, including Invisalign orthodontic treatment to give you the smile you deserve.

The major difference which makes Invisalign unique is that it doesn’t use brackets and wires at all. Instead, Invisalign uses an easy, convenient system of appliances, known as aligners.

Let’s take a look at how Invisalign aligners stack up against traditional braces. Invisalign is:

Virtually unnoticeable, because Invisalign aligners are made of beautiful, clear plastic; traditional braces are not discreet, because the brackets and wires can be easily seen.

More comfortable, because Invisalign aligners are smooth plastic, with no sharp edges; traditional braces have numerous sharp areas which can irritate soft tissue.

Convenient treatment, because Invisalign aligners can be removed so you can brush, floss, and enjoy the foods you love; traditional braces need cumbersome tools to floss underneath the wires, and food can get stuck in the brackets.

Quick and easy, because Invisalign treatment can be completed in 9 to 15 months; traditional brackets and wires can take considerably longer.

Invisalign and traditional braces do have something in common. Invisalign can correct many of the same tooth positioning and alignment issues as traditional braces. In fact, Invisalign is a great choice to correct:

  • An overbite or underbite
  • A crossbite or open bite
  • Crowded or rotated teeth
  • Gapped or unevenly spaced teeth

Invisalign can straighten and enhance the beauty of your smile quickly and easily. To learn more about how Invisalign compares with traditional braces, call Dr. Samia Rageb Hempel at Park View Smiles, in Chicago Loop, IL. You can reach her in the office at (312) 726-5830, so call now!
