Invisalign Aurora, IL
Forget unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces and let Dr. Young H. Kim straighten your teeth with Invisalign. Made of soft, smooth, clear plastic, Invisalign aligners can be removed to eat or brush your teeth and won’t irritate your mouth and gums. And the best part—they’re nearly invisible. Lincolnway Dental Center is a leading provider of low cost Invisalign in Aurora, Naperville, North Aurora, Sugar Grove, Yorkville, Montgomery, and Oswego, IL.
Invisalign treatment at Lincolnway Dental Center in Aurora begins with scheduling a personal consultation with Dr. Kim. First, Dr. Kim will assess your individual case and determine whether Invisalign is right for you. She will explain the Invisalign process, treatment costs and dental insurance coverage, and answer any questions or concerns that you might have.
Custom-Made For You
If you and Dr. Kim in Aurora decide to move forward with the Invisalign treatment, Dr. Kim will then take pictures, X-rays and impressions of your teeth. Lincolnway Dental Center will send the pictures, X-rays and impressions to Invisalign so that 3-D images of your teeth can be generated.
Dr. Kim in Aurora will use the 3-D images to develop a personal treatment plan that maps the precise shifts your teeth will undergo during the course of treatment. Dr. Kim can even use the images to show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will straighten over time. Dr. Kim will send these specific plans to Invisalign, which will use Dr. Kim’s plan to build custom-made clear aligners for each stage of treatment.
The aligners are made of a soft, BPA-free plastic. You’ll put in a new aligner approximately every two weeks, and Dr. Kim will schedule periodic checkups to monitor your progress. Most treatment plans for adults take a year to complete. For teens, the process time is comparable to braces, which for many young adults can take up to three years.
Because they are made of smooth plastic, the aligners won’t irritate your mouth like metal braces do. They also can be removed to eat, brush or floss. For best results, Lincolnway Dental Center recommends that you wear your Invisalign aligners for 22 to 24 hours per day.
