Premier Invisalign Treatments For Gurnee & Vernon Hills Area Adults & Teens
At Affiliated Dental Specialists, we offer a variety of treatments at our Vernon Hills and Gurnee, IL orthodontics offices. Our orthodontists Dr. Richard Port and Dr. Gary Klein have the experience and are well equipped to provide you with the personalized, unique care that you deserve. For those teen and adult patients who desire straighter teeth without the use of brackets and wires, we proudly offer the Invisalign system. We are also pleased to let you know that Dr. Port is one of a few select orthodontists with Invisalign Preferred Provider status in the state of Illinois.
Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. They are virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.
How Invisalign Works
Once the decision is made to use Invisalign, advanced 3-D computer imaging technology is used to transform your impressions into a series of clear, custom-fitted trays, or aligners. A set of aligners is worn day and night for about two weeks at a time, and is removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Instead of setting semi-monthly appointments with our Gurnee and Vernon Hills orthodontists to have your brackets adjusted and tightened, after two weeks you can simply replace your aligners with the next set in the series. You may have as many as 48 aligners or as few as 12 over the course of treatment, depending on your treatment plan and the severity of your orthodontic problem. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will gradually move toward their final, straight positions.
Your office visits are no more frequent than with traditional braces. Invisalign invisible braces allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly without hassle. The Invisalign system straightens teeth just as effectively as traditional metal braces, provided that you follow all of the guidelines outlined by our orthodontists.
The Many Benefits of Invisalign
- Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. You can straighten your teeth and perfect your smile discreetly and without changing your lifestyle.
- Unlike traditional braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. You can also brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
- Invisalign trays are comfortable. There are no metal brackets or wires with the Invisalign system that could cause irritation to your mouth.
- With Invisalign, you can view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when treatment is complete!
