Invisalign® in Kankakee IL 60901
Invisalign is a teeth-straightening system without the need of metal brackets or rubber bands. With the use of a series of custom, clear aligners to shift their teeth into the correct position, patients can achieve the perfect smile. As the teeth straighten, patients progress to the next set of aligners in the series. The ability to remove the aligner trays at any time makes brushing, flossing and eating easy.
How Does the Invisalign Process Work?
Dr. Raffi will start by holding a consultation with you to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. Once you have made the decision to proceed, Dr. Raffi will take impressions of your teeth and send the impressions to a dental laboratory, where your aligner trays will be made.
Over the course of your Invisalign treatment, you will insert a new set of aligners every two weeks until you have achieved the desired results. The aligners should be worn at least 20 hours a day. You can remove your aligners to eat, brush, and floss.
Why Choose Invisalign Over Traditional Braces?
Correcting crooked teeth with Invisalign is easy, discreet, and comfortable. Below are some of the biggest advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces:
- Invisalign aligners are clear and comfortable. You don’t have to worry about painful wires or unsightly brace brackets.
- Unlike with braces, you can remove Invisalign aligners to brush, floss, and eat. This makes it easier for you to maintain proper oral hygiene.
