Are you looking for providers for Invisalign in Belvidere, Illinois? Belvidere Dental Design offers the Invisalign system as an alternative to metal braces. No wires needed. Invisalign is the #1 dentist-recommended clear aligner treatment.
Invisalign’s system consists of a series of customized clear dental appliances, called aligners, that straighten teeth to the desired position. Each aligner is custom-fitted to the patient’s mouth during each phase of the alignment process. Patients have the added convenience of removing Invisalign for brushing, flossing, eating, and drinking.
Is Invisalign Right For Me?
Dental conditions helped with Invisalign include:
Crowded teeth- overlapped, twisted, and bunched together due to a lack of room at the jawline.
The top teeth overlap the bottom teeth. Most people have a small overbite, which would be ideal at about 5% to 25%. However, more pronounced overbites can cause worn teeth and jaw pain.
The bottom teeth are in from of the top teeth.
Open bite. The top teeth and the bottom do not meet.
Some of the teeth sit inside the lower teeth, and some sit outside.
Gapped teeth- extra space between two or more teeth.
Invisalign straightens teeth more predictably and more comfortably. Invisalign is the most advanced clear aligner available. With 20 years of research, the largest 3D printing operation, and over 900 patents behind the creation of this alignment system, patients can trust their mouths and the mouths of the whole family with Invisalign.
Is There an Advantage to Using Invisalign?
The first step is a 3D scan of the patient’s teeth; a quick scan replaces goopy teeth molds.
Dr. Thakkar then uses the ClinCheck software to map out each tooth shift needed to straighten the entire set of teeth. The Clincheck software produces a futuristic image of the patient’s teeth to show what they will look after the whole course of treatment.
SmartTrack material ensures each mold is specially engineered to each patient perfectly. After manufacturing, trimming occurs for better fit and comfort, then inspected before shipment to the dentist’s office.
Affordable, Comfortable Invisalign in Belvidere
Invisalign in Belvidere improves the patient experience; you'll experience fewer restrictions from foods and activities. The patient removes the aligners for eating and drinking, followed by brushing and flossing their teeth before reinsertion of the aligner. Brushing and flossing remain the same, so you won't have to make big changes to your dental hygiene routine; simply rinse and brush aligners every evening before sleep while adhering to your normal regimen. The dentist will go over the cleaning system before starting with the first set.
- No wires or brackets to irritate soft tissue.
- Treatment is optimal at 20 to 22 hours per day with each set of aligners worn for one to two weeks, as prescribed by the dentist. The first few days of a new set may be slightly uncomfortable, but that is normal.
- Checkups scheduled approximately every four to six weeks for monitoring progress and changing out old aligners for new.
- Invisalign's nearly invisible profile ensures your discretion
