Getting straighter teeth can be comfortable, simple, and free of both discomfort and self-consciousness. At Advanced Dental Care, we proudly feature Invisalign, the state-of-the-art system of aligners that does the same or better job that traditional metal braces do, but without the negative aspects associated with them.
For many people, the most fantastic feature that Invisalign boasts is that due to its clear plastic construction, it is virtually undetectable to the eye. Often, patients bring up to our orthodontist in Chicago the cosmetic concern about wearing braces. It can be awkward to smile, laugh, speak, or even chew around other people. Speaking of chewing, metal braces come with a list of restricted foods. You cannot eat anything crunchy because it could damage the braces. Sticky and chewy options are out due to the possibility of them getting stuck and tangled in the braces. All of the above is eliminated with Invisalign. That’s because you take out your aligners when you eat. Enjoy all of your favorites. Take your aligners out when you brush and floss, too. And then keep them in the rest of the day and night, so that they can move your teeth into a more ideal position as prescribed by our orthodontist in Chicago. You’ll wear a different set of aligners every two weeks. Take out your old ones, and replace them with the next set. Each is calibrated to serve its unique part in the overall scheme of repositioning your teeth. The aligners are designed and made at our office using 3D computer software and cutting edge machinery. The average treatment time is 11 months, during which most patients have somewhere between 18 and 30 aligners.
