Invisible Braces in Orland Park, IL

Do you need orthodontic treatment but hesitate to get help because you’re worried about the way traditional metal braces will affect your smile?

At Orland Oaks Dental, we know that it can be discouraging for adults and teenagers to think about the prospect of living with conspicuous metal braces for several years. We are pleased to offer Invisalign invisible braces, a discreet adult orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth quickly and comfortably.

Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth

Alignment issues like crooked teeth, overbites, and underbites need to be addressed and corrected as soon as possible because misaligned teeth aren’t just an esthetic problem. When your teeth are crooked or crowded, you are at a higher risk for gum disease, uneven wearing of teeth, and discomfort when eating.

Our doctors have the training and skill to help patients of all ages, from teens to seniors, straighten teeth quickly without bulky, uncomfortable metal orthodontics. We choose Invisalign clear aligners because they can correct a wide variety of problems, from simple cosmetic adjustments to more complex alignment concerns.

  • Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic, which eliminates soreness and irritation.
  • Invisalign clear aligners are completely removable for eating, brushing and flossing, and athletic activities.
  • Oral hygiene is much more efficient and effective since there are no metal brackets and wires where food particles can become lodged.

How Invisalign Treatment Works

orthodontics in orland parkWe start by taking x-rays, impressions, and photos of your teeth, which leads to a detailed, three-dimensional computer model of your teeth. Your customized treatment plan is developed to take into account the desired healthy position of each of your teeth.

Then, using the 3-D models and the other information gathered at your first visit, a customized series of clear plastic aligners are created that gently move your teeth into proper alignment.

You will wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks, then move to the next set in the series. It’s easy to stay motivated throughout treatment as you see the progress each time you change aligners.

Your at-home treatment is supported by visits to our office at four to six-week intervals. During these visits, we will monitor your progress and make any adjustments necessary.
