Roselle Invisalign

Roselle Invisalign

Getting straighter teeth can be a pleasant experience with our Roselle Invisalign. Boasting features that are not possible with traditional metal braces, we at Lake Street Dental are pleased to offer them.

Ultimately, what matters most is how effective your braces are in repositioning your teeth. And our Roselle Invisalign can be counted on for that. In addition, they are virtually unseen. The clear plastic is see-thru and so you can go about your normal routine without anyone else knowing that you have anything on your teeth, so you won’t feel awkward or self-conscious. For some people, that’s the only reason for wanting this revolutionary system, but we can provide some additional ones. How about greater comfort? Metal braces may cause you soreness or irritation, but not plastic. It’s a pleasure to wear. Speaking of which, although you should essentially keep your aligners in 24/7, there are a few times when they should be removed. Take them out when you eat, brush, and floss. That means you can eat all your favorite foods during the course of your treatment. With metal braces, you cannot remove them and you have to avoid crunchy items that could damage them, as well as sticky or chewy ones that may get stuck in them. Our Roselle Invisalign represents freedom. And that extends to the fact that you won’t have to come in as often as you would with metal braces. There are no adjustments required. You will wear a new set of aligners every two weeks, with each set perfectly calibrated to perform its role in the overall strategy.

Find out if Invisalign is the right choice for your orthodontic needs. Just reach out to our office now and we will set up a time for you to come in for a consultation and examination. Say goodbye to crooked and poorly positioned teeth for good.

At Lake Street Dental, our Roselle Illinois dentist specializes in orthodontics and orthodontic appliances. Orthodontics help patients have straighter teeth through the use of methods such as braces. We offer patients the luxury of both traditional and invisible braces in a relaxed atmosphere. Traditional braces use hardware and retainers, as where invisible braces use clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth and are invisible for the most part. Both types of braces take anywhere from a year or more, depending on the level of straightening needed.

We also offer orthodontic retention. Orthodontic retention is an important part of the treatment phase after getting braces removed. The retention phase helps keep teeth in place even after braces are off. The phase lasts for at least 6 months and the final result of your orthodontics treatment depends on the retaining phase. This 6 month phase helps for growth and settling, and helps keep teeth and jaws stable. Because teeth move over time due to many different circumstances, such as force exerted by lips, tongue and aging, retainers are important. The only way to maintain the alignment after braces is with permanent or lifetime retention. Our Roselle Illinois dentist can tell you more about retention treatment after braces.

Our Roselle dentist recommends coming in for beginning treatment before your braces are put on as well. Initial evaluation should start if there are problems, and should start no later than age 7. Early treatment and evaluation gives us a chance to detect problems early enough to prevent them from getting worse later on or from turning into a more serious issue. Interceptive treatment can help to create room for crowded teeth, create facial symmetry and reduce the need for tooth removal.
