At Renken Dentistry, we understand that many Palmer, IL patients would rather not wear braces; that’s why we offer Invisalign. Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently shift your teeth. The aligners can be removed, so there is no need to avoid certain foods or spend extra time on oral hygiene. Even better, since the aligners are clear, they’re very discreet. Most people won’t be able to tell you’re wearing them. Invisalign also works much quicker than traditional braces, and most of our patients complete treatment within a year. If you’d like to find out if this treatment is right for you, schedule an appointment with our Invisalign doctor today!
Orthodontics is More Than Just a Straight Smile
Many patients associate orthodontics with a straight smile, but there’s a lot more to it than just aesthetics. Having proper alignment of the jaws and teeth can prevent dental issues later in life. Teeth that are crooked or crowded can make it difficult to have proper dental hygiene. Teeth that aren’t aligned correctly are more likely to trap food and bacteria, which can make them more susceptible to cavities and decay. An improper bite can also interfere with chewing and speaking. In some cases, it can also contribute to abnormal wear on the tooth enamel. Some Palmer, IL patients may also experience jaw pain or TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders.
Orthodontic treatment can yield life-changing results, like better biting, chewing, and speaking – as well as a beautiful smile. With Invisalign, orthodontics is more convenient and comfortable than ever. There are no uncomfortable adjustments needed or worries about cavities or staining forming behind fixed hardware. Since they’re removable, the aligners make it easy to brush, floss, and eat. While they must be worn at least 20 hours a day to be effective, they can be removed for special events. Invisalign treatment is suitable for most types of alignment issues. If our Invisalign doctor doesn’t feel it’s right for you, we do provide other options, like Six-Month Smiles.
