Male: Are you uncomfortable with your smile or is there something you wish you could change about it? Well thanks to a new teeth straightening technology called Invisalign enhancing your smile is easier and more convenient than ever. One of the premier providers of this technology is the Mitchell Dental Spa located in Chicago's Water Tower Place. Dr. Mitchell: Invisalign has a number of advantages over traditional metal braces. Male: Invisalign is especially good for correcting problems with overly crowded teeth and with widely spaced teeth as well. First and foremost the aligners are virtually invisible. Very few people will realize you even have anything on your teeth. Invisalign aligners are also relatively comfortable to wear. Tooth movements are done more gradually than with metal braces potentially resulting in less pain and sensitivity. And there are no metal bands or wires to irritate the inside of your mouth. Another big plus is that the aligners are removable. You can eat and brush your teeth as you do normally since there are no metal brackets cemented to the teeth. Finally, Invisalign does not cost more than regular braces. In fact, Invisalign in some cases can actually cost less. Dr. Mitchell: Invisalign is not for everyone though. Male: Invisalign is not meant for difficult or extreme cases requiring extensive tooth movements. The severe cases are best handled with traditional metal braces. In addition, Invisalign is not meant to be used on children due to problems with patient compliance. However for the patients Invisalign is meant to treat the results can be phenomenal.
