Dr. Janet Stopka is a biological dentist in Burr Ridge, IL, near Elmhurst. Her practice helps patients with a wide range of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry solutions. Patients faced with a misaligned smile may believe that traditional braces are their only option. Thankfully, with continued advances in orthodontia, patients can now use Invisalign to realign the smile without metal bracket and wire braces.
Invisalign is a tray method of aligning the teeth. When the dental arch is misaligned, it can affect the bite and wear and tear on the teeth. Addressing these issues can be achieved with Invisalign. Digital impressions are taken and sent to the Invisalign laboratory where a series of trays are made. Patients start with the first tray and wear it over the dental arch day and night for two weeks. Then, they move on to the next tray in the series and wear that for two weeks. The series progresses until patients have reached their final tray. This is when the results are achieved. Patients often continue using the final tray at night as a retainer to maintain their new alignment.
Invisalign is just as effective as other methods of orthodontia. It is also comparable in cost and allows most patients to achieve their results in approximately one year or less, depending on the severity of the misalignment.
When patients are interested in realigning their smiles, Dr. Janet Stopka is excited to introduce individuals to the benefits of Invisalign treatment. If you are ready to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign, contact her practice today at 16W289 83rd Street by calling (630) 756-5844.
