Contact Oakbrook Orthodontics for Invisalign® in Hinsdale, IL
In case you’re not familiar with this dental treatment option, Invisalign® is an increasingly popular alternative to traditional metal braces, providing both comfort and near invisibility, with no wires and metal brackets on your teeth.
When you make an appointment at Oakbrook Orthodontics, you can be assured you’re in good hands with Dr. Neal LaRoia and his associates at our clinic. At Oakbrook Orthodontics, our primary goal is to provide you with straight teeth and a radiant, dazzling smile that will make you feel comfortable in any personal, social, or professional situation
The Invisalign® Process Explained
Briefly summarized, Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic aligners or trays, rather than traditional metal braces, to straighten your teeth.
At your initial consultation, x-rays and photos of your teeth will be taken in order to assess your alignment issues and determine if Invisalign® is an appropriate therapy for you.
If it is, at Oakbrook Orthodontics, we’ll use our advanced 3D computer imaging technology to create a series of custom-fit aligners designed just for you. All aligners are made of medical-grade thermoplastic, and during your treatment, you won’t have to deal with the metal brackets, wires, and rubber bands that are part of the more traditional approach to teeth straightening.
Your entire treatment time will take between 9 to 15 months, and during that time you’ll have somewhere between 18 to 30 different sets of aligners. You’ll wear each set of aligners for several weeks before they’re replaced by the next set in the series.
During the process, the aligners will gradually move your teeth into their new, permanent position, leaving you with the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
The Benefits of Invisalign®
Here are just a few of the benefits Invisalign® provides compared to traditional metal braces.
Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible. That makes Invisalign® a great choice for older teens, young adults, and older adults who want to avoid wearing traditional metal braces.
When it’s time to brush and floss your teeth, you can easily remove the aligners, brush and floss your teeth, and brush the trays with your toothbrush. In no time at all, both teeth and aligners are clean, and a clean mouth is a healthy mouth!
Because they’re made of plastic, Invisalign® aligners tend to be far more comfortable than metal braces. All aligners are custom-made to fit your mouth, and there aren’t any sharp edges to cause discomfort.
With Invisalign®, you’ll only have to come to the dentist’s office about every six weeks. In contrast, other treatment options often require more frequent dental visits.
Invisalign® trays can be removed at any time, making everyday activities like brushing your teeth and eating much easier compared to traditional metal braces.
With more traditional orthodontic treatments your food options are often limited. Some foods are just off-limits.
That’s not the case with Invisalign®. Since the trays are removable, you can eat whatever you want without restrictions. After you’ve finished, you can rinse your mouth out or brush your teeth, and put the aligners back in your mouth.
