Get Invisalign at Our Dental Office in Skokie, IL
If you are looking to straighten your teeth but want to avoid metal brackets and wires, Invisalign from the experts at North Dental Professionals may be the perfect option for you. Invisalign straightens your smile without the wires and brackets typically used with braces. Instead, Invisalign employs a series of clear, custom-crafted, removable appliances called aligners. The benefits of Invisalign aligners are numerous, including:
- Discretion – The clear aligners are virtually invisible, which means hardly anyone will know you are straightening your teeth.
- Comfort – No wires or brackets means no chafing against the inside of your mouth. The smooth plastic material of Invisalign ensures you remain comfortable throughout your treatment.
- No lifestyle changes – While braces may require you to change your eating habits, wear specialized mouthguards during sports, or relearn how to play some musical instruments, Invisalign allows you total freedom to enjoy your daily activities. Simply remove your aligners while you eat or play, and pop them back on again when you’re finished.
- Improved dental health – Unlike braces, Invisalign doesn’t have extra nooks and crannies to trap dangerous bacteria in your mouth. Invisalign also doesn’t require any special brushing or flossing techniques to keep your teeth healthy. Just take your aligners out to brush and floss as normal.
Who Is a Candidate for Invisalign?
If you don’t have structural problems with your teeth and jaws and only need to correct mild to moderate misalignment, Invisalign may work for you. Our expert can determine if clear aligners would work for your case. If your case is more severe but you still want discretion, you may be able to opt for clear or ceramic braces, which are less noticeable than silver braces.
How Does It Work?
You’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks, taking it out for eating, brushing, and flossing. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will gradually move into their final alignment prescribed by our specialist.. Invisalign is not for everyone, but we can determine if it is right for you. Contact North Dental Professionals today to learn more, or to schedule an appointment at our Skokie, IL, office.
