Let this year be the year you begin on your happiest, healthiest smile with Invisalign in Homewood, IL, from Grant Orthodontics! Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that helps straighten your teeth faster and more discreetly than traditional braces.
A Smile-Changing Experience
Here’s how it works: Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligner trays that are removable – so all through your treatment, you can eat whatever you want, play any sports you want, and play whatever instruments you want.
With traditional metal braces, the brackets and wires require the daily use of special interdental toothbrushes to get between brackets and underneath wires for thorough cleaning. With our practically invisible Invisalign treatment, you only need to brush your trays when you brush your teeth and switch to a new of trays every week. Additionally, the comfortable plastic aligners mean no more mouth abrasions from poking metal wires.
What to Expect
Invisalign is truly a game-changer because it allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you even start treatment. That means you will be able to actually see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
If you are interested in starting treatment with Invisalign, one of our orthodontists will first meet with you to ensure that you are a strong candidate for this treatment. Once that has been determined, a digital impression of your teeth will be made. This impression will be sent along with your customized treatment plan to Invisalign’s lab. Invisalign then uses its advanced computer technology to calibrate a sequence of finely-tuned aligners made just for you. The total number of aligners you receive will depend upon the treatment plan developed by you and our orthodontist.
You’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks, taking it out for eating, brushing, and flossing. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will gradually move into their final alignment. You will need to visit our office approximately once every six weeks, so your progress can be checked and to receive your next aligners. Although treatment time varies from case to case, when you wear your aligners the recommended 22 hours each day, you can look forward to a beautiful new smile faster than ever before!
