Living with crooked teeth is embarrassing and can make you feel self-conscious. The good news is that with Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth with dsicretion and ease.

Invisalign in Oakbrook Terrace also offers several other advantages you may not have considered.

#1 Complete Invisibility

Invisalign uses clear aligners instead of metal brackets and wires to straighten your teeth. The aligners offer the utmost discretion, and no one will ever know you're straightening your teeth when you're wearing them.

#2 Easy and Comfortable to Wear

Invisible braces with Invisalign are made of clear, smooth aligners that are comfortable to wear. You won't have to endure pokey brackets and wires.

#3 A Simple, Straightforward Home Care Routine

Because your aligners are removable, you'll be able to take them out for easy brushing and flossing.

#4 No Diet Restrictions

Since you can remove your clear aligners for meals, there are no restrictions to your diet like traditional braces.

#5 Time Saving

Invisalign saves you time at the dentist because you can switch your aligners at home. Your dentist will only need to see you periodically to check in and ensure your smile is progressing as planned.

How Invisalign in Oakbrook Works

If you're interested in straightening your teeth with Invisalign, the first step is to schedule an evaluation with our dentist. Then, if you proceed with treatment, Dr. Rivera will create a customized treatment plan for you with 3-D imaging. Invisalign uses this treatment plan to make your aligners, and you're all set to start.

Most patients are in treatment for 12 to 18 months, depending on their needs. Being compliant about wearing your aligners at least 22 hours every day and changing them every two weeks ensures you stay on track and can start enjoying your new smile on time.
