It’s common for patients to put off orthodontic treatment mainly because they would rather not have metal brackets and wires placed inside their mouth for a year or longer. Thankfully, there is an alternative treatment available for straightening smiles that is more discreet and comfortable than traditional methods. Invisalign at Grand Dental – Sycamore is not only popular among teens, but adults can take advantage of treatment as well! If you’d like to preserve your smile’s appearance while you undergo orthodontic treatment, please call us today to learn more about Invisalign in Sycamore, IL!
Invisalign clear aligners are made using a digital scan of a person’s smile. Every 1 to 2 weeks, you’ll need to swap out your current aligners for the next pair in your series. This pushes your teeth into their straighter position, slowly yet effectively, and without braces. They are easily removable, which means eating and drinking is simple. You’ll also be able to brush and floss without worry of intrusive metal hardware.
Invisalign’s custom trays are created using a BPA-free plastic. Every pair of trays gently shifts teeth millimeters at a time. If you want the best results and quickest treatment time, wear them for at least 22 hours a day.
At your first appointment, our trained team members will capture photos and X-rays as part of their thorough exam. This information is provided to our Invisalign software, which creates a 3D model of your teeth to develop a personalized treatment plan. In this plan, we can highlight how your teeth will move over time. This makes it easy to see what your final results will look like before you even start! The plan also confirms how many times you’ll visit, how often you should switch aligners, and the treatment length. At your second appointment, we’ll provide you with the custom-made aligner trays, then give tips on at-home maintenance. In most cases, you’ll visit us once every other month to examine the movement of your teeth and make sure they’re on track. Typically, treatment will fall between 9 and 24 months.
While teens are optimal candidates for Invisalign, adults can take advantage of them as well. The blue compliance indicators are found in teen aligners so parents can make sure they are being worn for long enough. Since they are transparent, you’ll never have to worry about feeling self-conscious during your orthodontic treatment. In many cases, both simple and complicated cases can be addressed via Invisalign! Thanks to their additional training, our doctors can handle these difficult cases. Our dental office is dedicated to helping you achieve the results you’re looking for, all while accommodating your lifestyle.
Invisalign Teen is a separate clear aligner system that makes the process of straightening teeth practically unnoticeable. This is done using transparent, removable aligners customized to fit your teen’s teeth exactly. As a result, no wires, brackets, or bands are necessary.
