Consider Invisalign® to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without braces. A complimentary consultation with our doctor can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
What is it?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70 percent of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
Why choose Invisalign?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, but they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts nine to 15 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case.

Teeth straightening has long been an arduous process involving metal brackets, wires, stuck food and many uncomfortable months. It also involved multiple visits to the dentists to tighten wires and keep checking to make sure that there are no problems. All of this changed with the advent of new technology called Invisalign.
Invisalign at Lisle Dental is a very modern way for straightening your teeth. This is done using a series of aligners made of clear elastic thermoplastic material. Since each patient’s teeth are different, each aligner is custom made for the individual. The treatment usually starts with the dentist taking photographs, bite patterns, X-rays and impressions of the teeth. This is sent to technicians along with a dental treatment plan. The technicians create a 3-D model of the teeth in their current state as well as in the final stage as the doctor visualized it. The different steps in teeth movement from start to finish are modeled, and aligners are created for each step. Depending on the condition of the teeth, the number of aligners may vary. The movement of teeth is very gradual and comfortable for the patient.
Advanced Lisle Dental is at the forefront of technology when it comes to patient comfort. Contact us today to find out more about the Invisalign Lisle Treatment plan.
