All You Need to Know About Invisalign

Posted on June 20th, 2012 by


There is good news for people whose teeth aren’t as straight as they would like them to be: Metal brackets and wires are no longer the only route to straight teeth.

Invisalign provides all the health and aesthetic benefits of straight teeth without the inconvenience of metal braces.

How it works:

Invisalign dentists use a series of invisible, individually customized aligners to straighten the patient’s teeth. These BPA-free aligners are changed approximately every two weeks, with each aligner bringing your teeth closer to their desired locations.

What it treats:

Invisalign is an effective method of treating widely spaced teeth, crowded teeth , crossbite, overbite, and underbite. Whether these malocclusions occur due to natural shifting, tooth extraction, or incoming wisdom teeth, Invisalign treatment is a proven approach to straightening teeth.

Who it works for:

Invisalign is the ideal treatment for patients who want straight teeth without the discomfort and inconvenience of metal braces. Because Invisalign requires a greater degree of patient responsibility—including switching to the next aligner in the series, wearing the appliance for at least 22 hours each day, and removing the aligner for cleaning—young children are not the ideal candidates.

What life with Invisalign entails:

Invisalign treatment lasts approximately two to 24 months; but because the aligners are practically invisible, patients benefit from aesthetic improvements at every stage of straightening. Invisalign aligners are removable; so unlike metal braces, Invisalign allows you to enjoy all your favorite foods. Aligners may also be removed to allow for brushing and flossing as normal.

What its benefits are:

A healthy smile is a huge confidence booster, and straight teeth are essential to a healthy smile. But the benefits of straight teeth go beyond aesthetics alone. Straight teeth are less likely to experience plaque buildup that can lead to gum disease. Additionally, eliminating bite problems and protruding teeth can prevent damage and allow you to speak more effectively.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
