Discretion, Comfort, & Customized Convenience
If you wish to improve symmetry in your teeth, Invisalign can give you that dazzling smile you have always wanted in as little as six to 18 months. Virtually unnoticeable and completely comfortable, Invisalign trays gradually guide your teeth into their proper alignment. During your free consultation, our orthodontist will determine if Invisalign clear aligners from our Chicago, IL dental office will help meet your oral health and appearance goals.
Why Choose Pure Dental Spa For Invisalign®?
How Does Invisalign® Work?
The process is simple. First, Dr. Rutkowski will make molds of your teeth and mouth. These molds will be made into custom clear plastic aligners using state-of-the-art technology. The digital molds will also allow us to map out your entire treatment, so you know exactly what to expect throughout the process.
During treatment, you’ll wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day and stop by Pure Dental Spa to pick up new aligners each time you need to swap them out for the next set in the series. Once you complete your treatment, you will likely be required to wear a retainer to help keep your teeth in their new position until they are permanently in place.
Indications For Invisalign®
If you struggle with any of the following dental problems, you’ll be pleased to know that Invisalign is capable of treating all of these and more:
If your oral health is suffering because your teeth sit too close to one another, it’s time to consider Invisalign. Brushing and flossing are pivotal if you want to reduce your risk for tooth decay, gum disease, and cavities, so when it’s impossible to accomplish because of overcrowding, you can turn to clear aligners for help. By shifting your teeth over time, they will begin to realign and create the necessary space, making it easier to maintain a healthier smile.
Gaps Between Teeth
Gaps between teeth are equally as detrimental to your oral health as crowded teeth because they often trap harmful bacteria and food particles. But by choosing Invisalign, the aligners can gently move your teeth closer together, eliminating the gap and making it possible to clean your teeth and gums properly. This, in turn, minimizes your chances of developing serious gum disease and tooth decay while also giving you a smile you can be proud to show off.
If your bite is even slightly off, you’ll begin to notice it in the way you eat and speak. You may even discover that your teeth appear more worn, and you feel more pain within your jaw joints. If left untreated, this can lead to bruxism and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). But with Invisalign, these bite alignment issues (i.e., overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite) can be remedied to improve your overall quality of life.
The Benefits Of Invisalign®
Invisalign offers more than just a discreet way to straighten your teeth. Patients who have entrusted Pure Dental Spa with their clear aligner treatment also experience these additional benefits:
- Less irritation because there are no brackets or wires to rub against soft oral tissues (i.e., cheeks, gums, lips, tongue)
- Often quicker results as opposed to traditional braces (i.e., 6-18 months vs. 2-3 years)
- A flexible solution that allows you to remove your trays before eating, which eliminates the frustration of removing food from between brackets and wires
- An easy-to-clean orthodontic treatment that only requires a soft-bristled toothbrush, clear soap, and lukewarm water
Understanding The Cost Of Invisalign®
The cost of Invisalign clear aligners will not be the same for every patient. Because there are many factors that our dental team must consider before providing an estimate, it is necessary that you schedule an initial consultation with your dentist. We understand the price tag may seem as if Invisalign is out of reach, but the reality is that your dental insurance may help cover some of the cost. You’ll need to review your policy or have a member of our team do it for you to determine if you have available coverage. No matter the result, we are also pleased to provide additional financing to help lower your out-of-pocket expenses.
