We all want a straight, beautiful smile. But as it turns out, most of us aren’t naturally blessed with perfectly aligned teeth. If you have dental misalignment and figuring out where to start, look no further. A Brush Above Family Dentistry in Chicago, Illinois, offers Invisalign treatment that straightens teeth without metal wires and brackets. The Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable trays designed to gently straighten your teeth with comfort, discreetness, and convenience.
Many teenagers and adults resolve to stay with misaligned smiles because they aren’t ready to commit to years of wearing train track braces. Invisalign solves this problem through minimally visible trays. These clear teeth straighteners apply controlled pressure on your teeth to move them into the desired position. This way, you don’t need conspicuous wires and brackets mounted on your teeth.
You must wear each tray for about 20-22 hours daily. You should only remove your aligners when eating or cleaning your teeth. However, you can drink water with your aligners on. In addition, each aligner tray should be replaced every two weeks with the next tray in the series that pushes your teeth closer to perfection. This pattern continues until you achieve the desired outcome.
After an initial consultation with Dr. Marcella Guzman, we digitally scan your mouth and feed the images into software that generates a 3D representation of your smile. We use these images to simulate your treatment plan. This means you can see how your teeth move during treatment and what the end result will look like.
When you and your dentist are happy with the projected results, we order your aligners from our Invisalign lab. Your aligners will arrive within one to two weeks, and you can arrange for pick up. When you come, we’ll show you how to wear your trays and give you care instructions to keep them in great shape.
Invisalign aligners are created using the SmartTrack™ material, which offers superior comfort and flexibility. Unlike metal braces, the smooth, BPA-free SmartTrack™ material doesn’t irritate your gums and cheeks.
Besides comfort, the other perks of Invisalign include:
When you opt for Invisalign, you aren’t choosing an inferior orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is as effective as traditional braces, only that it achieves results with comfort and subtleness.
