Illinois Invisalign Dentist
What is Invisalign?
Have you ever wondered what your dream smile could look like in real life? Fixing the small gaps or crooked areas in your smile can make a huge impact on your confidence and self-esteem. Invisalign is an advanced service in cosmetic dentistry that makes it easy to straighten your teeth without the use of bands, brackets or wires. Check out some of our before and afters from patients around Illinois.
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth.
Invisalign Can Permanently Improve Your Smile
Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution to adjust your smile and improve your bite, without letting any of your coworkers or friends know! Because they come in the form of clear, removable aligners they are easily placed into the mouth and can be removed for simple eating or cleaning. Invisalign custom aligners are a popular option for teens and adults to straighten their teeth in a fraction of the time of traditional metal braces. If you have been considering orthodontic care to straighten your teeth or align your smile, make an appointment or give us a call to schedule a consultation.
So, What makes Invisalign different from braces?
While both braces and Invisalign place pressure on the teeth to move them, Invisalign does it without any metal pieces. Instead, it uses clear plastic aligners that look similar to plastic retainers. These aligners are made based on computer imaging of your mouth and the treatment plan designed by the software and your doctor.
How does Invisalign work?
As noted above, pressure is placed on the teeth to move them. With traditional braces, this would mean having the braces adjusted frequently to change the pressure. With Invisalign, it means swapping out aligners every two weeks; each aligner changes the pressure as needed to move your teeth quickly into place.
Why Should I Choose Invisalign?
They just aren’t for everyone. Invisalign offers some benefits over traditional braces, including:
- Invisible: no one can see the aligners so you can keep your treatment a secret
- Removable: you don’t need to learn how to brush and floss around braces, nor do you need to change your diet to accommodate them
- Comfortable: the smooth plastic does not irritate the sensitive tissues of the mouth
- Adjustable: you switch the aligners out, so you make the adjustments, eliminating trips to the office.
Is Using Invisalign Difficult?
Invisalign is very easy to use, but because it is removable, you need to be very responsible about your treatment. As long as you do not keep your aligners in when eating, brushing, or flossing and you clean them several times a day, everything should go well. You need to remember to switch aligners to the next in the series every two weeks, but that is it. Just like that, you have the healthy, beautiful smile you have dreamed of.
