How Invisalign from your dentist in St. Charles, IL, can straighten your smile

Do you want a straight smile? Have you been procrastinating about orthodontic treatment because you don’t want to wear brackets and wires? If so, you need to discover Invisalign, a very popular, very discreet way to achieve a straight smile. Dr. John Isbrandt at Dean Street Dental in St. Charles, IL, offers Invisalign treatment to give you a beautiful, straight smile easily and comfortably.

So, how does Invisalign work? Invisalign is revolutionary because there are no brackets and wires. Instead, Invisalign uses a system of plastic trays, known as aligners. The aligners are:

  • Discreet, because they are clear plastic, which is virtually invisible to people around you
  • Comfortable, because there are no sharp metal parts to irritate your soft tissue
  • User-friendly, because you can remove the aligners to eat the foods you love and brush and floss your teeth

You receive your first set of aligners, which you wear for two weeks. You progress to a new set of aligners, which you wear for another two weeks. You move to a new set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth move gradually and comfortably into proper position.

You will visit Dr. Isbrandt every few weeks so he can monitor your progress. In most cases, Invisalign treatment takes between nine and fifteen months, compared to years for conventional orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign can correct many of the same issues as conventional brackets and wires, including:

  • Overbite or underbite
  • Crossbite or open bite
  • Poor tooth or jaw alignment
  • Spaces between teeth or tooth overlap
