Invisalign Clear Braces in Palatine
At Palatine Complete Dental, we know that excellent oral health and a beautiful smile contributes to a better quality of life for our patients. Knowing you look your best gives you the self-assurance to interact easily with friends and business associates and share your smile with everyone meet.
One area in which many adults struggle, however, is with crooked or crowded teeth. They know their smile could look better but don’t want to spend years in braces to achieve it.
For these patients, Dr. Michael Unti is pleased to offer orthodontic treatment with Invisalign clear aligners at our Palatine dental office. Instead of using brackets and wires to move your teeth, Invisalign uses clear, comfortable plastic aligners.
As part of Dr. Unti's commitment to continuously expand his skills and knowledge in dentistry, he has had advanced training in orthodontics, including Invisalign. You can be confident that you will receive the highest standard of treatment from friendly, caring professionals who want to help you achieve your goals.
Steps for Getting Invisalign
Once you and Dr. Unti determine that you are a good Invisalign candidate, the first step is an evaluation where he takes photos, x-rays, and impressions of your teeth. Using this information, he utilizes advanced software to develop a step-by-step treatment plan to create a three-dimensional digital model that maps out how your teeth will move through each stage of Invisalign treatment.
An Invisalign lab customizes several sets of aligners that are designed to move your teeth sequentially according to your treatment plan. Wear one set for two to three weeks, then switch to the next set we provide as your teeth and watch as your teeth start to move closer to the desired, straight position.
We will see you every 4-6 weeks at our Palatine dental office to check on your progress and give you your next sets of aligners. Invisalign treatment is complete when you have worn all your aligners, and your teeth are beautifully straight and aligned.
Benefits of Invisalign Treatment
There are many reasons why adults in Palatine choose Invisalign clear aligners to straighten crooked teeth.
- Comfortable: Invisalign aligners conform snugly to your teeth, and the smooth plastic surface won’t irritate the inside of your mouth as metal braces can.
- Convenient: You should wear your aligners at least 22 hours a day to see the best results in the shortest amount of time. But you can remove them so you can brush and floss easily and continue to eat all your favorite foods.
- Discreet: Invisalign is perfect for adults who don’t want everyone to know they’re having orthodontic treatment. The crystal-clear aligners are virtually invisible, and most people won’t notice you’re wearing them.
Are You a Good Invisalign Candidate?
Many adults who want to straighten crooked, crowded, or overlapped teeth are good candidates for Invisalign. But some bite and alignment issues respond better to traditional orthodontics, and at Palatine Complete Dental, we offer those too.
We would love to meet with you to review your situation and determine if Invisalign treatment is the right solution to help you achieve your smile goals. Please call our Palatine dental office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Unti to get started.
