Invisalign in Oak Park

Invisalign

The clear, non-invasive orthodontic solution

Even with the best oral hygiene, there’s not a lot you can do to ensure your teeth grow in perfectly. If you have misaligned teeth or an asymmetrical smile, we have an orthodontic solution for you. At the office of Dr. Wise, we recommend Invisalign for all our patients, young and old. The clear aligner can correct crooked teeth, occlusion, and bite alignment without drawing unwanted attention. Best of all, the prosthetic is completely removable, so it wont disrupt your daily routine.

The Benefits of Invisalign

  • Treats multiple issues - Invisalign helps with crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, and gaps between teeth.
  • Nearly invisible - Invisalign uses thin, durable plastic that is fully transparent and virtually unnoticeable. You can undergo the treatment without anyone having to know.
  • Nondisruptive - You won’t have to change any of your eating or cleaning habits with the aligners. Just take them out when you need to and reinsert when you’re done.
  • Comfortable and unobtrusive - Because the aligners are molded to your teeth, they fit snugly. There are no sharp edges or uncomfortable wires. You may even forget you’re wearing them!

The Invisalign process

If you’re interested in Invisalign, book a consultation with our office immediately. Together, we'll decide if Invisalign is best for you, and then begin the treatment process right away. To start off, we'll take scans of your mouth and promptly ship them to the Invisalign lab. There they will create your custom aligners and send you the first couple sets.

Upon starting the treatment, it’s important to remain disciplined. You’ll need to wear the aligners close to 22 hours per day, only removing them for cleaning or eating. Every two weeks you can swap out your current set for the next pair, which will continue to gentle straighten your teeth. A check-up should be scheduled with our office every six weeks, to ensure that you’re remaining on track with the treatment. If all goes well, you should only need around 20-30 sets of aligners over the full extent of your treatment. For most patients, their smile will be picture perfect in a little over a year!

The basics of Invisalign

Invisalign is an orthodontic solution that uses transparent plastic aligners to straighten teeth over time. The prosthetics are almost completely non-invasive and are customized to fit your teeth, so they do not stand out while being worn. Over time, the aligners will gently shift your teeth towards their correct placement. The treatment lasts a little over a year and is completely discreet. No one has to know you’re going through the process.
