Clear Aligners in Illinois – Clear Braces vs. Metal Braces

A patient with misaligned or crooked teeth or large gaps in their smile may need orthodontic treatment. This is often the best solution for these issues, but metal braces are not the most desirable treatment method.

Some patients may be cavity-prone, in which case traditional metal braces might worsen this problem. Adults might also feel self-conscious about wearing traditional metal braces. Clear braces are the most advanced, discreet way to straighten your teeth without the need for clunky metal braces.

Invisible aligners are clear trays that can be removed at will by the patient. They are suitable for several conditions. These clear aligners also do not come with metal wires or brackets that could break or be extremely uncomfortable.

Invisible Braces in Elk Grove Village – How Do They Work

Clear aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Schumer’s expertise and state-of-the-art 3-D computer imaging technology.

Once you are approved to move forward with treatment, impressions will be taken of your teeth. Your first set of custom aligners will be made and shipped back to your dental office. Each set of aligners will be replaced with a new one as your treatment progresses. Your teeth will shift over time until they have straightened to the ideal position.

You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. They will only be removed to brush and floss your teeth, as well as to eat and drink. This means your aligners will need to be worn for about 20 to 22 hours at a time. They should also be cleaned throughout the day before each use.

To ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned, you will visit Dr. Schumer about once every 6 weeks. Total treatment time ranges from 9 to 15 months for patients. Most people go through 18 to 30 aligners, but these numbers will always vary from person to person.

Clear Aligner Costs in Illinois

Fortunately, there are ways to save through dental insurance. Some providers do not cover clear aligners vs. traditional braces. Please contact your provider directly for more coverage information.

Why Having Straight Teeth is Important

Having straight teeth is far better for your oral health than crooked or misaligned teeth.

Straight, properly aligned teeth do not grind against each other and cause damage. Additionally, some people develop TMJ due to these issues. Luckily, they can often be fixed with braces and can relieve several problems associated with TMJ.
