Effective Invisalign® Clear Aligners in Lincoln Park

Straightening your smile as an adult shouldn’t be a hassle. At our Lincoln Park dental practice, Invisalign® makes achieving your dream smile a simple, straightforward process. Our Lincoln Park dentists Dr. Katie Shackleford, Dr. Kirsten Galayda, and Dr. Thomas Collins are here to ensure that your orthodontic experience is as successful as possible. 

Why Choose Invisalign®

Invisalign® offers a revolutionary approach to correcting misaligned, overcrowded smiles as well as tooth relapse from prior orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional metal braces which relies on wires and brackets to straighten teeth, Invisalign® uses a series of custom-fit clear aligning trays. As treatment progresses, these trays are continuously swapped out and replaced with other trays, which gradually move teeth to the proper position.

There are a number of advantages that accompany this clear braces solution. One of the most sought after benefits of Invisalign® is the convenience of treatment. As Invisalign® uses removable trays instead of brackets and wires, patients do not need to visit our Lincoln Park practice to stay on top of their treatment plan. Instead, we give patients up to three aligning trays at a time to be changed out at home according to their unique Invisalign® plan. Worn for two weeks at a time, patients visit The Dental Clinic for check-ups and treatment evaluation every six to eight weeks. 

Given the convenience of care, Invisalign® is an especially patient-oriented treatment. With this alternative, patients are responsible for following their unique treatment plan. This typically requires wearing the aligning trays for around 22 hours per day and removing them before eating. While this can sound intimidating initially, many patients find Invisalign® to be comfortable and easy to wear. Often, many forget that they’re even wearing their aligning trays. 

One of the greatest advantages of Invisalign® is that it is virtually invisible. For adults and teens, this is especially valuable as it allows them to correct their smile without having to wear bulky metal braces. With Invisalign®, patients can continue about their daily routine without feeling self-conscious about their appearance.
