Invisalign Clear Braces in Aurora, IL

Having crooked teeth or a misaligned bite is never ideal for multiple reasons. An out-of-alignment smile is dangerous when it comes to both your oral health and how you feel about the way you look. 

A misaligned bite may cause feelings of insecurity about smiling and laughing, holding you back when expressing yourself. Additionally, crooked teeth come with their own set of oral health challenges that can add insult to injury when you’re already feeling insecure. 

If you’re craving a healthier and more beautiful smile, you’ve come to the right place. woman holding invisalign tray

At Prairie Dental Care, we offer an orthodontic option for adults in Sugar Grove that gives our patients exceptional results without bulky brackets and wires: Invisalign clear aligners. 

How Invisalign Treatment Works

Beginning Invisalign in Aurora, IL is incredibly simple. 

First, we take updated dental x-rays and impressions of your smile. At this time, either Dr. Christine Wang or Dr. Xiaoyu Ma will discuss treatment times, cost, and follow-up appointments. 

Next, we will send your information to the dental lab, where the clinical team will create Invisalign aligner trays that work well with your unique smile. 

Once we receive your aligners, we’ll discuss how quickly you should move through each set. Before you leave our dental office, you’ll know how to proceed with your Invisalign system so you can receive the best results. 

For general Invisalign care, you should: 

  • Wear your trays at all times unless eating, cleaning your teeth, or drinking hot liquids
  • Clean your aligners with cold water and a gentle cleanser
  • Never leave your aligners in a hot car
  • Come in for your routine dental exams so we can monitor your progress
  • Wear your retainer after treatment to prevent your teeth from shifting

Invisalign clear braces work best for Geneva patients who have all their permanent teeth and molars and can wear braces for at least 22 hours each day. 

Perks of Invisalign Over Traditional Braces

Standard braces are usually the best choice for children who aren’t worried about having a mouth full of metal and who even look forward to changing their rubber band colors to match the seasons or their favorite sports teams. However, traditional orthodontia is not typically something that adults with careers and responsibilities want to deal with. 

Invisalign and traditional metal braces are a lot alike in the sense that dentists rely on both treatments to take your smile from where it is to where it needs to be. When compared with classic braces, however, Invisalign adult braces tend to feel a little more user-friendly. 

Our Batavia Invisalign uses incremental aligner technology similar to that of metal braces to gradually move your teeth into ideal alignment, resulting in the correction of common orthodontic conditions, including:

  • Overlapping teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Protruding teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Off-center midline
  • Gaps or unevenly spaced teeth

At Prairie Dental Care, your preferences and treatment goals are important to us. Dr. Wang and Dr. Ma will welcome you to our dental office to discuss your treatment options and how Invisalign fits into your life and works hard to create a straighter smile for you.  

We fluently speak Cantonese, Spanish, English, and Mandarin, and we welcome patients from Oswego, Montgomery, North Aurora, and surrounding cities for Invisalign consultations. You can find our dental clinic West of North Orchard Road on the corner of West Indian Trail & Village Center Parkway.
