Learn How Invisalign Can Help You

Traditional orthodontic treatment has proven to be effective at improving your bite, straightening teeth, and fixing problems with overcrowding and gapped smiles. However, the metal wires and brackets can leave a patient feeling as if there is a shining spotlight on their teeth. Fortunately, there is an alternative solution that uses clear aligners to treat orthodontic problems – Invisalign. At Esplanade Dental, Dr. Albert and Dr. Snow can examine your smile and set you up with a truly unique solution. Apart from its virtually undetectable aligners, the benefits of Invisalign in Downers Grove are endless. Contact us to schedule your consultation today.

Faster Results

Whether you’ve worn traditional braces in the past or are learning about the differences between metal braces and Invisalign, you know that it can take two or more years to achieve desired results with metal brackets and wires. Who wants to wait that long when you can straighten teeth in Downers Grove in as little as 12 months with Invisalign? Considered to be one of the quickest orthodontic treatments available, the clear aligner technology makes it possible for you to receive treatment faster as well as reduce the amount of time you must spend in the dentist chair.

Maintain Your Appearance

Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic that is virtually transparent, making it almost impossible for anyone to notice that you’re receiving treatment. Your trays will remain clear as long as you take care of them. That means, using a toothbrush, clear soap, and lukewarm water to remove any stuck-on saliva or harmful bacteria. You’ll also need to remember to brush your teeth after eating anything that could stain your teeth and cause your aligners to become more apparent.

In choosing to wear Invisalign aligners, you can maintain a professional appearance while at work and feel confident about your smile when it’s time to take photos at a special event.

Improved Comfort

One of the greatest aspects of Invisalign is there are no metal wires or brackets to irritate the soft tissues of your mouth. Unlike traditional braces that can rub against your cheeks, lips, gums, and tongue, Invisalign is made of smooth plastic and custom-designed to fit your smile comfortably. It’s important that these trays fit properly, especially since you are required to wear them 20-22 hours each day.

No Food Restrictions

If you asked individuals who wear Invisalign what their favorite aspect is about treatment (apart from the invisible aligners), they would probably tell you it’s that there are no food restrictions. With traditional braces, it can be difficult to enjoy many of the foods you love because of the possibility that it will get trapped in the brackets and wires, but with Invisalign, all you need to do is remove your trays prior to eating, allowing you to eat whatever you want! Just remember to place your trays in a protective case to prevent damage.
