Elmhurst Invisalign Dentist Discusses Advantages of Clear Braces

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Apr 16, 2024

The Invisalign system corrects nearly any alignment issue you may have with your teeth. Our Elmhurst cosmetic dentists are approved Invisalign providers, and our patients have chosen the system to correct the following issues:

  • Overbites/Underbites
  • Spaces/gaps in teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Crooked teeth

The Invisalign Process

The process begins when we take an impression of your mouth in order to create a clear thermoplastic aligner. This custom-made aligner fits your teeth similarly to a mouth guard. However, the Invisalign aligner is designed to gently realign your teeth.

Every two weeks you will remove your current aligner and move to the next aligner that has been carefully calculated to shift your teeth to the next phase in the straightening process. It will take approximately a year for your aligners to gradually move your teeth to a straighter and happier smile.

Benefits of Invisalign

Discreet: Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. The casual observer won’t even notice any difference when you’re wearing your aligner.

Removable: You can remove your aligners when you eat, brush your teeth, or any other time that it is essential to have the aligner removed.

Comfortable: Since Invisalign aligners are made of a soft, flexible material, they are much less likely to create any irritation to your mouth.

The Invisalign system is a perfect choice to fit into your busy lifestyle while providing the straight, beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of. Contact our Elmhurst Invisalign dentists to learn more!
