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.
You can count on the training and skill of our doctors to help your family members of all ages straighten teeth quickly and comfortably without the need for bulky metal braces. We choose Invisalign clear aligners because they provide a way for us to address a variety of alignment issues, from esthetic adjustments to more involved orthodontic treatment.
- Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic, which eliminates soreness and irritation.
- Invisalign fits your lifestyle because you can remove them to eat, brush and floss, and to participate in athletic activities.
- Brushing and flossing are more effective because you don’t have to try to clean around wires and brackets where food particles can become lodged.
How Invisalign Treatment Works
The planning phase of your Invisalign treatment begins with x-rays, impressions, and photos of your teeth. This information is shared with a software program that creates a 3-D computer model of your teeth. Each step of your treatment is mapped out, and you will see a visual representation of the final results.
We send the specifications to an Invisalign lab, where a customized series of clear plastic aligners are created that gently move your teeth into proper alignment.
During treatment, you wear each set in the series for about two weeks. Then you will switch to a new set of aligners that continue to move your teeth into the desired position sequentially. You will stay motivated during your treatment because you’ll see progress each time you change aligners.
During treatment, we will have you return to our office for check-in visits every four to six weeks to monitor your progress and make any adjustments necessary.
