Tinley Park Invsialign Dentist Explains How Invisalign is Used to Treat Different Dental Problems

Written by Dr. Zaibak on Aug 4, 2014

Many patients have avoided perfecting their smiles because they didn’t want to deal with the hassle of braces for months of even years. Braces are not only unattractive, they’re also uncomfortable to wear and can hurt your cheeks and gums. The good news is that now our Tinley Park cosmetic dental office has a better way to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

Invisalign is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that uses clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. With Invisalign you can get the straight smile you’ve been dreaming of without the harsh, unsightly metal braces you want to avoid. Invisalign oral appliances are so unobtrusive that they’re virtually invisible when worn!

When patients use Invisalign, they will be given a new dental aligner every two to three weeks. Each aligner brings you closer to your ideal smile. This system is more attractive and more comfortable than traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are smooth, flexible, and custom-crafted to fit your mouth.

But Invisalign can do more than just straighten crooked teeth. Invisalign can actually be used to correct a number of cosmetic and functional dental problems. For example, with Invisalign we’re able to adjust and perfect misaligned bites. This means if you suffer from and underbite, crossbite, or overbite, you may be able to achieve a comfortable, attractive, and functional bite with Invisalign.

Invisalign can also be used to close large gaps between teeth. Your Invisalign aligners will be crafted to gradually move your teeth closer together—filling large spaces in your smile.
