You don’t have to sacrifice the appearance or the health of your smile during orthodontic treatment. There are new treatments—like Invisalign—that can straighten your teeth without marring your smile with metal. Our Orland Park cosmetic dentist office uses Invisalign to help patients get the smiles of their dreams while maintaining clean, beautiful teeth.
No metal wires and brackets
Invisalign aligners are made completely of clear plastic resin. This means that they are virtually invisible when worn—you don’t have to hide your teeth for months to get the treatment you want. Plus, b the plastic resin is smooth and polished—no metal to scratch your gums and teeth!
Easy to clean
You’ll actually take your aligners out completely to clean them and your teeth twice a day. You’ll be able to brush, floss, and use mouthwash as usual, so you won’t have to worry about food particles being stuck in your smile. To clean your aligners you can use Invisalign Cleaning Crystals or a soft, gentle toothbrush. Never use hot water to clean your aligners, as this can damage the structural integrity of the plastic resin.
Each aligner that you wear builds on the aligner that came before it. Every two to four weeks, you’ll receive a new aligner that moves your smile even close to its ideal position. Because these aligners are incremental, the Invisalign process is comfortable and you can actually see your smile improve over time!
These are the basics of Invisalign treatment. This revolutionary option is the attractive, comfortable, and hygienic way to get the smile you want! If you’re interested in perfecting your smile, you should schedule your own consultation with our Orland Park Invisalign dentists. During your consultation, we’ll be able to assess your smile and determine if Invisalign can address your needs.
