Invisalign in Elmhurst, IL

Ever dreamed of that perfect, magazine-worthy smile without the metal fuss of braces? You might just be in luck! At Cottage Hill Dental Care, Dr. Mohammad Al-Asadi and our team have something that might make those dreams come true: Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Think of Invisalign as the modern way of straightening those pearly whites. They’re clear aligners, custom-made for your teeth. What makes them stand out?

  • Near Invisible: These clear, plastic aligners are shaped to your teeth.
  • Removable: Got a date or a big event? Pop them out and pop them back in afterward.
  • Comfortable: No pokey wires or metal to cause discomfort.

Is Invisalign Better Than Braces?

Now, we’re not throwing shade at traditional braces — they’ve been the orthodontic hero for ages! But Invisalign does have its perks:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: They’re clear and hard to notice.
  • Eat What You Want: Pop them out to eat, and brush your teeth as normal.
  • Fewer Office Visits: Meaning you get more time for anything else you want!

However, it’s essential to chat with our dentist, Dr. Al-Asadi, to see what’s best for your unique dental care needs.

Got Alternatives to Invisalign?

You bet! While Invisalign is amazing, it’s not the only player in the game. Depending on your teeth and what you’re comfortable with, there are other orthodontic treatments available. It’s all about finding what’s right for you.

Walking Through the Invisalign Process

Let’s break it down:

  1. Consultation: Pop into our office and have a chat with Dr. Al-Asadi.
  2. Custom Plan: We’ll take impressions of your teeth and map out a custom plan.
  3. Get Your Aligners: Once they’re ready, you’ll start wearing them, only taking them out to eat, brush, or for special occasions.
  4. Regular Check-ins: Every so often, you’ll come in for a quick review and to get your next set of aligners.
  5. Reveal That Smile: After your treatment, show off that brand-new smile!

How Long Do I Need to Wear Invisalign Retainers?

Honestly, it varies. On average, most adults wear them for about 12 months, but it depends on the complexity of the alignment needed. But don’t fret! Dr. Al-Asadi will guide you on the best duration for optimal results. Once the treatment is done, you’ll then be given a set of retainers to keep your teeth in the desired position. Dr. Al-Asadi will instruct you on how long to wear those retainers so that your straightened teeth don’t slide back to their original positions.
