Invisalign in Lake in The Hills uses a series of clear, plastic aligners.You have a career established and even kids in their teenage years that have braces straightening their teeth, but you still haven’t corrected your smile the way you want to. If you’ve been avoiding getting the straightening treatment your teeth need because you don’t want to deal with a mouth full of metal, you’re looking in the right place. Compassionate Dental Care (formerly known as All Smiles Dental) offers Invisalign in Lake in The Hills. We can fix your misaligned teeth in an invasive, practically invisible way.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign appliances are created from smooth, clear plastic trays that gradually shift your teeth into their correct positions. They not only hide your treatment but reduce your chances of experiencing a soft tissue injury while you wear them. Each set of aligners are custom crafted to fit tightly over top and bottom teeth. Over the course of 9 to 18 months, the aligners carefully push teeth into healthier, more aesthetically pleasing positions.

Who makes the perfect candidates for Invisalign?

Your dentist in Lake in the Hills, either Dr. Welch or Dr. Stirneman, recommends Invisalign for older teens and adults. Young children typically don’t make good Invisalign candidates because their smiles are still developing and could potentially shift during the treatment. These aligners are ideal for individuals who desire a proper bite and attractive smile aesthetics but don’t want to deal with the inconveniences that braces pose. Our dental professionals will complete an oral exam, digital X-rays and most likely take impressions to send to the nearest Invisalign lab. From there, a treatment plan goes to the Invisalign lab where technicians create your custom aligners that will give you the smile you’ve ben desiring.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Besides being a modern, practically invisible orthodontic option, Invisalign aligners fit well into people’s busy lives by:

  • Having the ability to be removed for brushing, flossing, meals and special occasions (graduations, weddings, and other special events).
  • Having the ability to keep your soft tissues and gums injury free.
  • Simplifying home oral hygiene and professional cleanings at Compassionate Dental Care.
  • Keeping your diet the same so you can enjoy the same foods.
  • Simply trading our aligners for the next in line rather than painful wire tightening appointments.
