Why You Should Consider Invisalign

Is Invisalign the best option for straightening your smile? 

Do you look in the mirror and think, “is that gap between my front teeth getting bigger?” or “are my teeth looking more crooked than they used to?” Unfortunately, these things can happen, and the change can be so subtle that you don’t even notice it right away. If you want to do something about it your Grayslake, IL, dentist Dr. Fatima Afshar can help. Dr. Afshar offers Invisalign to her teen and adult patients.

Invisalign is easy to keep clean: Since aligners are removable, you can simply take them out at mealtimes and before brushing or flossing. That means you don’t have to worry about getting unsightly food stuck in your braces. You only need to clean your Invisalign once a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and water in order to prevent stains from forming. You should also rinse them off before putting them in after meals and snacks.

You don’t keep them in while you eat: Now you can enjoy straightening your teeth and a fantastic meal. Not having any food restrictions while wearing Invisalign is enough to make anyone happy. Just remember to put your Invisalign back in right after your meal so that you're wearing your aligners approximately 22 hours a day.

Your “braces” are clear: It might seem hard to believe that braces can be clear, but technology has come a long way since the metal bracket days. If you don’t believe it, ask your Grayslake, IL, family dentist. You can confidently wear your aligners without worrying that people are going to be staring at your teeth. Plus, you can easily snap a couple of selfies without worrying about having to remove your aligners first because they aren’t noticeable!

They are comfortable: Our Invisalign patients in Grayslake, IL, say that sometimes they don’t even think about them when they are wearing their aligners. That's because each aligner that you get is custom-fitted just for you and is made from high-quality, medical-grade thermoplastic that is smooth and comfortable.
