With so many exciting and beneficial advances in the orthodontic field, we offer our patients more variety in their treatment options. For example, if you prefer to not have the more traditional option of braces, we offer clear aligners at Downers Grove Orthodontics. With custom-fitted clear aligners, your smile gets straightened without the noticeable look or added maintenance that can come with traditional braces.
Clear aligners are a great choice for teen and adult patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smiles. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, these clear aligner systems are made from smooth, thin plastic and are custom designed and computer-generated to fit your smile perfectly. Not only are they discreet, but they are also comfortable. Your aligners are removable, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods as well as brush and floss with ease.
Each set of discreet aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of your teeth. As you switch sets of aligners every few weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, these clear aligner systems can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our orthodontist may recommend this low-profile treatment to correct:
