Invisalign® New Lenox FAQ
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® technology utilizes a series of removable, clear and comfortable set of aligners that no one will be able to tell you are wearing. Made with a state-of-the-art 3D computer imaging technology, Invisalign® is an effective and easier solution than traditional orthodontic treatment.
Why Would I Need Invisalign®?
For adults, teens, and everyone in between that have always wanted straighter teeth–Invisalign® is the perfect solution. Not only are Invisalign® aligners invisible, but also they are completely removable–allowing you to eat and drink whatever you want. Invisalign® is also extremely comfortable, with no metal to cause uncomfortable mouth abrasions and less time needed in the dentist’s chair for adjustments.
How does Invisalign® Work?
The process for Invisalign® is incredibly efficient and simple. After your initial consultation and fitting, you will be given a set of aligners to wear for two weeks, removing only to drink, eat, floss and brush. As you move along in the series of aligners, your teeth will begin to move slowly until they reach the final, desired position.
You will be asked to visit the team at Atrium Family Dental once every two months in order to ensure that your treatment is working as planned. Invisalign® typically takes an average of nine to fifteen months, but this will vary for each patient.
