All About Invisalign

Modern dentists use modern ways of tackling dental challenges. Invisalign is a modern way of dealing with crooked teeth.

How it works
3D computing technology is used to determine the current position of your teeth and the desired final position. The information from the results is used to custom-make clear aligners. As each aligner positions your teeth closer to the final desired position, your teeth become more aligned.

Benefits of Invisalign
They are clear in color so you do not have to fear that people will notice them. Since you can remove the Invisalign, you can brush and floss your teeth and you can enjoy eating anything. Lastly, your mouth does not feel irritated as the braces do not have wires or metal brackets like traditional braces.

Can any dentist carry out the treatment?
No, dentists have to receive more training to be able to carry out the procedure.  After the training, the dentist attains a ‘preferred provider’ title. Only dentist with such accreditations are professionally qualified to work on Invisalign. Make sure the dentist you choose is a preferred provider.

Can anyone use Invisalign?
No, it is not suitable for people whose second molar have not yet erupted and those with their baby teeth. Talk to your dentist to determine if you are qualified for Invisalign.

Is the procedure painful?
No, it is not. It is a painless way of aligning teeth. Traditional braces are painful but Invisalign are painless. While receiving the aligners, you will feel a bit of discomfort but not a lot of pain. The discomfort simply means that procedure is working.

People who use Invisalign in Elk Grove Village enjoy all kinds of food as they can simply remove the aligners when eating. Smoking and chewing gum discolor Invisalign so you should not use hem when wearing your aligners.
