Proud to Be Your Local Invisalign® Provider in Homewood, IL
Have you always wanted straighter, even teeth but have the inconveniences of metal braces always held you back? Homewood-Flossmoor Dental Care is an Invisalign® provider in Homewood, Illinois. Thanks to modern advances in dentistry, Invisalign® is a revolutionary way to straighten your teeth without the noticeable wires and brackets used by traditional metal braces. Using clear plastic aligners that gradually guide your teeth into perfect alignment, Invisalign® is customized to suit the needs of every patient.
When you come in for your Invisalign® consultation with our dentist, tooth impressions will be created. From those impressions, Invisalign® develops customized aligners that will slide directly over your teeth. Aligners are typically worn full-time (except when eating or drinking) for 12-48 months. Aligners are replaced approximately every two weeks, as your teeth shift into their new alignment gradually.
The Benefits of Invisalign® over Traditional Metal Braces
Many of our Homewood-area patients have recently discovered the many benefits Invisalign® offers when compared to traditional metal braces, including:
- Convenience – Invisalign® aligners may be removed when eating or drinking. Say goodbye to dietary restrictions and go on eating the foods you love (nuts, popcorn, candy, corn-on-the-cob, etc.). Embarrassing food particles won’t get stuck between your braces, and you’ll find that Invisalign® aligners are much easier to clean for improved oral hygiene.
- Comfort – Invisalign® aligners don’t have any annoying metal wires or brackets to continually chafe against your gums, causing irritation and sometimes cuts inside your mouth. Metal braces sometimes caused noticeable lisps, but Invisalign® won’t affect your speech.
- Aesthetics – As their name implies, Invisalign® aligners are practically invisible to offer a discreet method for straightening teeth. Most people won’t be able to tell you’re wearing them!
