Do you want straighter, more attractive teeth but don’t want to wear braces? Invisalign could be the ideal option for you. The clear plastic aligners move your teeth into position without the discomfort and possible embarrassment of metal wires and brackets.

And Downers Grove Orthodontics is an Invisalign® Certified Provider.

Invisalign Explained

Invisalign is the brand name for a series of clear retainers that are completely removable. They fit securely over your teeth, and are more comfortable to wear than typical metal braces. Our dental laboratory creates your customized Invisalign retainers after receiving your X-rays, impressions, and orthodontic treatment plan. Approximately every two weeks, you switch out one aligner with the next one in the series.  It’s that simple!

Why Invisalign is a Superior Choice

Invisalign got its name because the aligners are clear and not easily visible to others. Because you can remove the trays at any time, you remain unfettered by food or beverage restrictions during treatment. This makes brushing and flossing a much simpler task as well (just remember to rinse off and clean your aligners at the same time).

Since there are no wires or brackets to adjust, you don’t have to come to our office as often for adjustments. Your orthodontist will show you a virtual treatment plan before you get started so you can visualize what you will look like once you have worn your last Invisalign retainer.

What to Expect from Treatment

Although your aligners are removable, you should only take them out to eat, drink, and care for your teeth. Each tray in the series puts slightly more pressure on your teeth until they move into the position determined by your treatment plan. Plan on visiting us about once every six weeks so we can monitor your progress. Most people wear a total of 18 to 30 trays during treatment, which lasts an average of 9 to 15 months.
