Invisalign could help you or your teen achieve that perfectly straight smile.

Most of us deal with some sort of alignment issues as our permanent teeth start to erupt; however, perhaps your pediatric dentist told you to simply wait it out to see if your teeth shifted into the right position on their own and they never did. A shocking 35 percent of young adults feel embarrassed by their mouth and teeth, states the American Dental Association. Fortunately, our Glenview, IL, dentist Dr. Alexander Quezada offers a clear orthodontic system called Invisalign.

Invisalign is a set of custom-created clear aligners that fit over your upper or lower teeth to shift teeth into place. Each aligner has been created based on dental images taken of the patient’s mouth. Our Glenview, IL, dentist will use computer software to map out your treatment plan and to be able to determine which teeth will need to move around and exactly how much to achieve the results you want.

Invisalign can correct a wide range of minor to more serious “bad bites” and dental problems including,

  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowding
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites

Why People Are Choosing Invisalign

So, why Invisalign? If you are a teen or adult who is considering whether to get braces here in Glenview, IL, you’ll be happy to hear that you don’t have to wear visible metal braces to get the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign is a completely clear alternative that you can also remove, making it easier to brush, floss, and eat what you want without restriction. Plus, you can rest assured that you can wear your Invisalign aligners and still feel confident around colleagues and while presenting to coworkers.

Invisalign is also a very convenient way for our patients to straighten their teeth. Since aligners do not require any sort of adjustments, you won’t need to come into our office nearly as much for checkups. Most patients will only need to come in every 4-6 weeks to check progress and to make sure that teeth are shifting as expected.
