Orthodontics (Invisalign)

Invisalign Lincolnshire is available at Village Green Dentistry.  Misaligned teeth make a smile imperfect. Whether front teeth overlap or are widely spaced, improper tooth position can create an unattractive smile. Crowded teeth are also hard to clean and can be prone to cavities and gum disease, which affect dental health. Braces are a solution to these problems.

However, image-conscious teens and adults may avoid conventional orthodontic braces because they’re obvious, bulky, uncomfortable, and require an investment of time for daily maintenance and regular adjustments at the orthodontist’s office. Today, you have another option: Invisalign clear, removable aligners.

Like traditional metal braces, Invisalign relies on gentle pressure to move teeth into proper position. However, Invisalign aligners aren’t attached to teeth. They area clear acrylic mouth pieces that easily slip in and out of the mouth. There are no metal wires and brackets or rubber bands, so Invisalign is comfortable. You can also remove the aligners for a special occasion or when you want to brush and floss.

Another impressive benefit, Invisalign treatment requires only 6-18 months instead of years of treatment. And no adjustment visits are required. Wear your aligners as directed, and visit Village Green Dentistry for progress checkups every six weeks. When treatment is completed, you won’t have to worry about potential tooth damage or stains, like you would with traditional orthodontic brackets. Invisalign is the clear choice for busy people who want a straighter smile.

If you want a straight and beautiful smile, and you’d like to experience contemporary, customized patient care, it’s time to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sokol at Village Green Dentistry. Our Lincolnshire dental office is conveniently located for patients who live in the Chicago North Shore suburbs of Lake Forest, Buffalo Grove, Vernon Hills, Libertyville, and surrounding areas.

Invisalign treatment usually takes less than 18 months, but traditional orthodontics often requires treatment for two years or more.
