Whether you have gaps between your teeth, a misaligned bite, or crooked teeth, visiting a skilled orthodontist will help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. At Renken Dentistry, we provide several modern and effective orthodontic options that are far more comfortable, convenient, and discreet than traditional metal braces. Our goal is always to help you feel good about your smile and improve your overall health! If you’ve been searching for an “orthodontist near me,” contact us today for a consultation to discuss which of our orthodontic treatments is right for you!
In the past, going to the orthodontist meant braces – uncomfortable metal braces with wires and metal brackets that were difficult to thoroughly keep up with oral hygiene. Using modern dental technology, it’s easier than ever to have a beautiful straight smile. We offer two very effective orthodontic treatments that our Morrisonville, IL love: Invisalign and Six Month Smiles. At your consultation, your orthodontist will evaluate your smile and discuss the best treatment plan to fit your needs and lifestyle.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign are clear, removable plastic aligners that are barely visible. While they must be worn for most of the day, they’re far more comfortable and unobtrusive than traditional metal braces and can be easily removed for easier eating, drinking, and dental hygiene. Since they’re removable you’ll never need to worry about food getting trapped the way they do with metal braces, and you can easily remove them if you have a special event like a wedding or prom. You also won’t need to deal with the uncomfortable adjustments like those with traditional metal braces; Invisalign gently shifts your teeth into alignment using a series of aligners, and most patients finish treatment in about a year.
Six Month Smiles are sometimes referred to as “invisible braces.” They are similar to traditional metal braces as they use brackets and wires to gently shift your teeth, however, they are more discreet. Many patients love the aesthetic value of having braces that can quickly align their teeth without being bulky and noticeable. Six Month Smiles are easier to keep clean than traditional braces and have the added benefit of straightening Morrisonville, IL patients’ teeth in as little as 6-9 months.
