Invisalign is a great alternative to braces that uses clear, BPA free aligners that are worn for a specific period of time to straighten crooked or uneven teeth.
The clear aligners are smooth and comfortable, and they can be removed for cleaning and eating easily.
Typically, the aligners are worn anywhere between 20-22 hours a day, and this varies per patient. Depending on the level of correction needed, Invisalign can take anywhere between 6-18 months to correct teeth.
Many wonder if Invisalign is a faster treatment compared to braces. The average time for Invisalign is right in line with the length of time braces are typically worn. In some instances, Invisalign is worn for a shorter amount of time compared to braces, so this treatment can be faster in some cases.
Our team at East Peoria Dental will meet with each patient to get to know them and discuss their goals. We want to make sure each patient is comfortable with the treatment chosen, and knows what to expect every step of the way. Molds, photos, and x-rays will be taken to help build a customized treatment plan for each patient.
We want our patients to be excited about the process towards straighter teeth and a beautiful smile.
