Would Invisalign Work for Me?

Gone are the days when you were limited to using bold metal braces to fix your dental defects. Your dentists, Dr. Scott Emalfarb and Dr. Arielle Wulfsohn can fix your teeth with Invisalign at Lake View Dental Associates, in Chicago, IL, if it's right for you.

You're a Teen or an Adult 

Teenagers can still benefit from Invisalign for their dental defects.

Invisalign from your Lake View Dental Associates dentists, Dr. Emalfarb and Dr. Wulfsohn, has special eruption tabs that create room for your still growing molars. This makes them a great choice for teens who haven't had their wisdom teeth removed yet.

Older adults aren't left out of enjoying the benefits of Invisalign clear aligners. It doesn't matter if you're in your early twenties or pushing eighty. You're not too old to fix your teeth with clear aligners. These work for all eligible patients, regardless of age. 

Less Severe Dental Defects 

Most people find that with consistent use, Invisalign is pretty effective at correcting their dental defects.

If you reside in Chicago, IL, Invisalign from your Lake View dentist can fix dental defects such as:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Gap teeth

However, severe dental abnormalities might need advanced interventions. In some cases, traditional metal braces might provide more effective treatment while others might need surgery first.

Therefore, before deciding to pursue cosmetic dentistry with Invisalign you first need a consultation with Dr. Emalfarb and Dr. Wulfsohn.

This consultation lets your dentist assess your dental imperfections to determine if you'd benefit from Invisalign.

You're Dedicated 

Without your dedication and commitment to consistent use, you might not see results with Invisalign.

If you want to get the best out of your clear aligners, then you must commit to wearing them for at least 20 hours daily.

You can take them off when you need to eat or clean your teeth but you shouldn't keep them off for too long.

Remember that you'll only see results with consistent use.

You Want to Correct Dental Defects Discretely 

Many teens and adults don't like the look of traditional metal braces and would prefer to fix their dental defects without drawing unnecessary attention to their teeth.

Invisalign clear aligners provide a discreet yet effective way for you to achieve a perfect new smile.

If you're still wondering if Invisalign in Chicago, IL, is for you, allow your dentists, Dr. Emalfarb and Dr. Wulfsohn, to clear your doubts. Call (773) 472-6322 to schedule your appointment at Lake View Dental Associates.
