Invisalign: Your Better Version Of Braces!

We all crave for an evergreen smile! There are many people who feel awkward with crooked or crowded teeth. One of the most demanding treatments for the orthodontic issues is to wear braces, but with the emerging rise in the need for teeth straightening, there is yet another option available called Invisalign.

Aligners are a clear set of tight-fitting customized hard plastic mouthpieces that slip over the teeth. It can be used by individuals who have mild to moderate crowded teeth or have minor spacing troubles. It can also align your bite. Patients with minor overbite, crossbite, or underbite issues can be a candidate of Invisalign treatments. Since they are tight fit, it’s apt for adults or teens.

Invisalign is the biggest producer of clear aligners, but this is not the only brand. Well, clear or “invisible” aligners aren’t always meant for everybody. Your orthodontist or dentist will analyse you and decide what’s perfect for you.

How will your dentist treat you in New Lenox, IL?

In Lenox, IL, when your dentist or orthodontist examines you whether you are an apt candidate for Invisalign treatment, they’ll make a plan for moving your teeth. Then the dental team will work to complete a series of 3D digital impressions. These impressions are sent to the Invisalign laboratories where a precise set of trays will be built that will benefit the patients through the method of developing their smiles.

This is performed by wearing the trays for a minimum 20 hours a day. The trays are easily removable, which enables patients to continue their oral hygienic practices like flossing and brushing and even eating. The number of trays in patients’ series may differ as it is based on how serious your misalignment is. You’ll get a fresh aligner after each few weeks to continue moving the teeth into the desired position.


  • Easily removable trays to straighten the teeth.
  • You get a camera-ready smile without having to hide behind metal appliances.
  • As trays are removable, therefore patients find comfort and ease in maintaining their oral regimen.

How much do Invisible Aligners cost?
