Invisalign – A Clear Way to Straighten Teeth


Image frame 3
Dr. Stosich was specially trained in Invisalign in his orthodontic residency at the leading digital orthodontic institution in the world (they wrote the book on it!). During Dr. Stosich’s time at Temple, a close collaboration was formed between the two institutions to harness the technology to its full potential. This special training distinguishes him with a mastery level knowledge of Invisalign and now he is a highly experienced Grayslake and Chicago Invisalign provider. Invisalign is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces. Using a series of virtually invisible aligners, you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing and you can still eat and drink what you want. Because there are no metal wires or brackets, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Many of our patients had never considered traditional braces, but are now happily and comfortable improving their smiles with Invisalign.
