Straight, healthy teeth have always been important. As one of the first things that people notice when they first meet you, damaged teeth invisaligncan send the wrong message and impact everything from your social to professional life and prospects. In the age of Instagram and social media, straight teeth and an attractive smile are even more important than ever. But making the decision to fix crooked and misaligned teeth can present a Catch 22 for teenagers and adults who do not want to get traditional braces. The solution to this problems is Invisalign clear aligner trays. The dentists at Elliff Dental Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Batavia, IL, recommend Invisalign for teenagers and adults looking for a discreet, minimally invasive and affordable way to get straighter teeth.

Straighter Teeth (No Braces Required) in Batavia, IL

The Invisalign system consists of a set of custom aligner trays made of high-grade clear plastic that gently and discreetly shifts your teeth into the correct alignment over time (the typical treatment period for Invisalign is approximately 15 months). The trays must be worn for 22 hours every day but can be removed for up to two hours to eat and brush and floss your teeth and each tray is worn for approximately two weeks.

In addition to being discreet and minimally invasive, Invisalign trays do not require significant changes to your diet or oral hygiene routine, which allows you to keep up with your oral health needs as your teeth get progressively straighter. With Invisalign, teenagers and adults who wish to skip traditional metallic braces no longer have to give up on the prospect of a better smile.
