Fix crowded, crooked and chipped teeth with Invisalign
Lincolnway Dental Center in Aurora, IL offers patients variety of options that would achieve the results that they want for a beautiful Smile Makeover. We offer the choice of an orthodontic care, but many of our patients don’t like the look and feel of traditional metal braces. Invisalign is a great alternative and works great to straighten crowded teeth. Invisalign is a method of orthodontic treatment, which uses a series of clear, removable tray aligners used as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces. During the initial consultation with the patient, Dr. Young Kim will discuss in detail to determine if a patient is a good candidate for Invisalign. In most cases, crowded teeth can be straightened invisibly without braces. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, while extremely effective at moving teeth to their optimal positions. Dr. Young Kim will take x-rays, pictures and impressions of patient’s teeth, which Invisalign will use to create a digital 3-D image of them. From these images Dr. Kim will create a specific treatment plan, including the exact movements of patient’s teeth. Based on patient’s individual treatment plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners is then created specifically for the patient. Patients using Invisalign wear clear trays that gradually move their teeth into proper positions. In most cases, every two weeks, a new set of aligners are given to help patients advance to the next stage of their treatment plan. During each follow up visit, patients are able to see their progress and enhancement. Treatment plans vary for each patient, treatment takes approximately 6-12 months for adults patients, depending on the amount of correction desired.
Dr. Kim provides following recommendations to all of her patients that prefer to use Invisalign for their Smile Makeover:
- Invisalign should be wore at least 22 hours a day
- New aligner must be change every 2 weeks
- Invisalign should only be taken out to eat and brush your teeth. Patient should sleep with their Invisalign aligner.
- If all possible, avoid all other drink except for water when wearing aligners
- Brush and floss your teeth and clean your aligners after you consume anything (meals, snacks, beverages)
- Do not clean your aligner with a toothbrush, because it will scratch the aligners and make them more visible. Washing them using water only is best recommended option.
- Do not store or wrap your aligners in a napkin
