Whether you’re a busy teen or working professional, our Chicago, IL practice can help you achieve a straighter and healthier smile without having to wear traditional metal orthodontics. Instead, clear aligners straighten and correct the position of your teeth with a series of translucent trays changed out every two weeks. Devoted to your wellness, orthodontics can improve the aesthetics of your smile while treating improperly aligned teeth.
Clear aligners work by applying small amounts of pressure in key areas of your mouth, nudging teeth into the desired position. As you move to the next set of trays, your invisible braces straighten your smile in the convenience of your own home. Our Chicago, IL holistic dentist will only need to see you every other month to ensure things are moving along properly and send you home with your next several sets of aligners.
Wearing clear aligners provides our patients with a higher level of comfort and convenience during their orthodontic treatment. The removable trays are easy to care for, provide freedom to eat all your favorite foods, and discreet enough that other people never have to know you’re wearing braces. Clear aligners make it possible to straighten your teeth without other people ever seeing you in braces, brackets, or wires.
Because invisible braces are translucent, you’re able to go through your everyday routine without other people seeing you in orthodontics. Brushing and flossing are simple, because there are no wires or brackets to clean around. Not only can you eat whatever you want, you’ll also enjoy fewer — and shorter — trips to the dentist’s office.
Misaligned teeth can significantly increase the risk of common oral health concerns like tooth decay, gum disease, and TMJ disorder. By correcting your bite with invisible braces, you can enjoy a smile that functions optimally and efficiently, extending the life of your teeth and existing dental work.
