Invisalign® Treatment - Chicago and Hoffman Estates
Through the Invisalign® system, many of our patients can enjoy effective orthodontic treatment without the need for traditional metallic braces. In the past, when faced with wearing metal braces, many people simply chose to live with their crooked teeth. Today, our patients no longer have to. Instead, through Invisalign® virtually invisible braces at our Chicago and Hoffman Height offices serving Norridge, Park Ridge, and other areas of northwest Chicago and its suburbs, these individuals can obtain straight teeth and health smiles. Adults considering orthodontic treatment many times wonder how metal braces might be perceived in the professional setting. With Invisalign®, most people will not even realize you are undergoing orthodontic treatment, unless, of course, you decide to tell them.
The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Each aligner is designed to apply the appropriate pressure necessary to move teeth into a more beneficial position. Each Invisalign® aligner is worn for about two weeks, and overall treatment time is about the same as traditional metal braces. Aligners are worn 24 hours a day, except during meals. The revolutionary nature of Invisalign® has opened the door to high quality, effective orthodontic treatment for many. Our staff serving patients from Hoffman Estates, Norridge, Park Ridge, and other areas in and around Chicago, can help you determine if Invisalign® virtually invisible braces are right for you.
