If you find yourself holding back when you smile because of crooked teeth, Invisalign can help you smile with confidence! Invisalign is a comfortable, discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. The treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. Our patients love Invisalign treatment because the aligners are barely noticeable and can be removed eating, brushing, and flossing. Even better, they’re often able to complete treatment within a year! If you’ve been searching for an Invisalign doctor near Spaulding, IL, contact us today to schedule your free orthodontic consultation!
Do you have crowded teeth or gaps that make brushing and flossing difficult? Orthodontic treatment can help! Crowded, crooked teeth or teeth with spacing issues are more likely to trap food and bacteria and can be hard to keep clean. This can put those teeth at higher risk for tooth decay, gum disease, and even tooth loss. Orthodontic treatment is intended to prevent these issues, and you get a beautiful, straight smile in the process! Orthodontics can also correct bite issues.
In the past, most orthodontic issues were corrected with metal braces. Many patients don’t like the discomfort – or the appearance – of braces. Beyond that, metal braces can make oral hygiene difficult. Invisalign is an innovative alternative. The removable aligners make it easy to continue eating your favorite foods, while still keeping up with your regular oral hygiene. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately two weeks, then switched out for the next set in the series. Many types of orthodontic issues can be corrected using Invisalign treatment, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Spacing issues
- Open bites
- Crowded teeth
When you visit our office, your Invisalign doctor will exam your teeth and discuss your goals. In some cases, Six Month Smiles may be a better option for you. This orthodontic treatment is similar to metal braces but is more discreet. Six Month Smiles is generally a good option for patients who want to correct the alignment of their front teeth as opposed to bite issues. Regardless of your orthodontic needs, we’ll find a treatment option that’s right for you!
