A bright, beautiful smile is hard to miss. Unfortunately, the same can be said about crooked, misaligned teeth. If you’re unhappy with your smile due to misaligned, crooked, or overcrowded teeth, take steps to correct these issues with Invisalign treatment. Through Invisalign orthodontic treatment, you can achieve straighter, more attractive teeth in as little as 12-18 months. A beautiful smile is well within your reach with Invisalign. If you live in Burr Ridge, Illinois, or nearby communities, contact the office of Janet S. Stopka DDS today to learn more about our Invisalign treatments.
Both traditional braces and Invisalign are effective in straightening crooked teeth. Invisalign, however, offers unique advantages that make it a more appealing orthodontic treatment.
In place of metal brackets and wires common to traditional braces, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligner trays to shift teeth into their proper position. These trays are custom-made to fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth without poking or pinching your gums or cheeks. As the aligners are clear, they’re difficult for others to see, making your treatment completely discreet. The invisible teeth straightening properties of Invisalign are perfect for adults and teens who don’t want to call attention to themselves while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Convenience is another distinct advantage of Invisalign orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are removable for brushing and eating, enabling you to continue eating your favorite cuisine without restrictions. You can also keep your gums, teeth, and aligners cleaner throughout your treatment. Remember that your aligners should be returned to your teeth promptly after eating and brushing so as not to interrupt your treatment. Your aligners should be worn at least 22 hours daily for optimal results.
Invisalign requires fewer dental visits as there are no wires or bands to tighten during your treatment. You will be given various sets of aligners to upgrade every two weeks to continue the process of gradually shifting your teeth. Dr. Janet Stopka will monitor your progress every six weeks to ensure you’re on track with your treatment.
With Invisalign, you can look forward to shorter treatment times. While braces can take several years to straighten your teeth, Invisalign treatments generally last 12 to 18 months, depending on the problems you need to fix. After a comprehensive dental evaluation and discussing the results you want to achieve, Dr. Stopka will create a treatment plan conducive to your dental care needs.
Invisalign orthodontics can correct many of the same issues as traditional braces to perfect your smile. These include:
Fixing these issues not only improves the appearance of your smile but also enhances oral health as straighter teeth will be easier to clean.
