Are you the ideal candidate for Invisalign?
It’s never too late to straighten your smile, especially when our Naperville, IL, dentists Drs. Jeffrey and Connie Onik offer more subtle orthodontic treatment options such as Invisalign. If you’ve been wondering if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, here are some of the top reasons why teens and adults get Invisalign treatment,
Eat What You Want
Most of our patients don’t want to hear that they will have to give up certain foods when they get braces. Don’t worry; this isn’t the case with Invisalign. Instead of avoiding a laundry list of hard, crunchy, chewy and sticky foods, all you have to do is simply remove your aligners prior to eating. This means enjoying that delicious summertime corn on the cob and holiday candy canes without worrying about your braces.
Easy to Care For
Who wants to tack on minutes to their oral care routine? We didn’t think so. That’s why many teens and adults turn to our Naperville, IL, family dentists for Invisalign. The aligners are easy to keep clean and you can brush and floss your teeth just as you normally would without braces. Your oral care routine doesn’t have to change with Invisalign.
Fewer Trips to the Dentist
Our dentist will need to monitor your treatment’s progress, but we also know that running back and forth to our office can also only add to your already busy schedule. The good news is that our patients with Invisalign don’t need to come in as often for quick checkups (only about every 4-6 weeks).
Provides Fast Results
Who doesn’t want to be able to show off their perfectly straight smile in a matter of months? If you are an adult you may see results in as little as 6-12 months, depending on the type and severity of the malocclusion (“bad bite”) you’re dealing with.
Snap Photos with Confidence
While this might not be a major benefit for everyone, we know our teen patients want to feel confident in their appearance even when sporting braces. They want to snap selfies and prom photos without worrying about the way they look, and Invisalign won’t show up in pictures. Invisalign can help them feel confident during those teen years while still getting a straighter smile. It’s a win-win!
