braces in chicago

Invisalign is one of the most popular, modern, and cutting-edge orthodontic treatments for straightening your teeth. A great alternative to metal braces and other orthodontic treatments.

Invisalign has recently gained popularity as it can easily be taken on and off, unlike other dental braces. It is almost transparent; hence an aesthetic appeal is also associated with Invisalign.   

Invisalign Basics:

Also referred to as clear aligners, they are made from safe BPA-free plastic. They are far more convenient than metal braces as you can easily wear them and take them off without any hassle before eating, brushing, and flossing. This makes their maintenance effortless compared to metal braces. 

Let’s look at how our qualified orthodontists in Chicago help you with this journey.  

  1. We’ll have an initial consultation session with you to explain the entire process and possible solutions best suited to you.
  1. Through proprietary scanning, we’ll produce a 3D model of your teeth. This and other necessary details will be sent to Invisalign labs, where custom aligners will be crafted for you. This 3D model will, in most cases, be able to predict how your teeth will look after the treatment.
  1. On your next visit, we will test your customized aligners for the correct size and whether these aligners need further adjustment.
  1. One of the best things about Invisalign is the comfort and ease you’ll get. However, for best results, you’ll need to wear these for most of the day. It is common for most people to feel a little discomfort initially; however, if such irritation persists, the best course of action would be to consult us. Our orthodontist will make sure that the required adjustments are made.
  1. Usually, it takes up to a year for the treatment to be complete. Based on the individual examination and the 3D model of your teeth, we can determine how long the treatment will take in your case.

Advantages of Invisalign:

Although clear aligners like Invisalign are an expensive procedure, the benefits surely outweigh the cost.

  1. Since Invisalign is transparent, it would not be easy for others to notice whether you are wearing Invisalign aligners. 
  1. You would save a lot of time and money compared to metal braces as this treatment does not require as many dental appointments.
  1. You’ll love how easy it is to take care of these aligners and maintain your oral hygiene. Also, unlike metal braces, where you will have to restrict certain types of food, you won’t have to worry about that with these aligners. You can remove these before eating or brushing your teeth.
  1. Most importantly, the comfort you’ll get with these is alone worth the money you will spend on Invisalign treatment. They are gentle on your teeth and do not cause irritation.
