Planning for Your Child’s First Dental Appointment

October 1, 2015 ADManage

Today, patients who require dental treatment to straighten their teeth can choose between two effective methods: Invisalign and conventional metal braces. Invisalign clear plastic aligners are comfortable to wear and completely inconspicuous, so many patients prefer them. You will switch out your current aligners for a new set every two weeks; over time, your teeth will realign to give you a great smile. Invisalign is a proven treatment for a wide variety of oral problems, including overbite, underbite, and crowded teeth.

However, Invisalign is not suitable for all patients’ mouths. Conventional metal braces remain a highly effective means of straightening teeth, and they are suitable for patients of all ages. They require less time and fewer visits than Invisalign; you will visit your dentist’s office in Park Ridge every 4 to 6 weeks for minor adjustments. If you are interested in learning more about methods for straightening your teeth, contact your orthodontist today.
