Dr. Figuera, Dentist in Hazel Crest, IL, Offering Invisalign Treatments
Hazel Crest, IL dentist Dr. Gloria Figuera and her team are offering Invisalign to patients with misaligned, crowded, or gapped teeth. At the dental office of Artistic Family Dental, Dr. Figuera’s experienced team utilizes modern technology to help patients achieve healthy and beautiful smiles.
Unlike traditional orthodontics with bulky wires and unsightly brackets, Invisalign is a clear, removable device that you wear over your teeth for about 20 hours a day. This device makes it more convenient for you to eat, brush and floss while receiving orthodontic treatment. It is also comfortable and easy to wear.
Besides Invisalign being a convenient method for straightening teeth, it also has other significant health benefits. Teeth that are crowded or misaligned are more susceptible to excessive tooth decay because they are more difficult to keep clean and flossed. Straightening with Invisalign also helps to provide defense against periodontal issues in the future by keeping the gums firmly around the teeth. Additionally, crowding and misalignment can cause serious issues with cracking, damaging and wearing of teeth over time due to improper occlusion (bite). With Invisalign, patients now have a way to correct those issues without having to resort to traditional orthodontics.
The process of getting Invisalign is easy and convenient. It begins with a consultation at our office. Once Dr. Figuera determines if you are a candidate for Invisalign, a 3D model of your teeth will be created on the computer to ensure a step-by-step process to straightening your teeth. This allows you to see a visual representation of what your teeth can look like upon completion of treatment. Then clear aligners are custom-crafted to work with your teeth. Your clear aligners are replaced about every two weeks. Each successive aligner is made so that your teeth are slightly straighter than with the previous aligner.
Choosing Invisalign avoids most of the problems that traditional braces can cause. Invisalign involves substantially less pain, discomfort, or mouth sores that you may endure from the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces. Invisalign also decreases your chances of getting tooth decay and plaque buildup from inadequate brushing and flossing.
At the dental practice of Artistic Family Dental, we can help you achieve straight teeth and a beautiful, healthy smile with Invisalign. It is our top priority to deliver high quality care to our patients in a comfortable and convenient setting. Visit https://artisticfamilydental.com/ for more information or a consultation.
