Invisalign Aligners

Kenilsworth, IL – Invisalign is an appealing orthodontic treatment option. Who doesn’t want to move their teeth using an almost invisible device that is also touted to be comfortable and removable? No more metal mouth and no worrying about food getting stuck in brackets and wires – that sounds great!

When Invisalign first came on the market, it was really only best used in patients with minor malocclusions. Over the years, the company has made improvements and now Invisalign is marketed as an ideal option to rival standard metal braces. But is that really the case – has Invisalign improved and become more efficient at moving teeth?

If you have spent an entire lifetime with a less than ideal smile, and are making the decision to move forward with orthodontic treatment, chances are good you may be considering Invisalign. Invisalign has been gaining in popularity since it first came on the market, in part because it is marketed as invisible, comfortable and removable – all things adults considering orthodontic treatment love to hear. But, can it really provide the best results possible?

Dear Dr. Stosich,
I just got Invisalign, and after less than a day, these aligners are annoying! I had a button put on for use later when I need rubber bands to help move my teeth better, and the button is a bit cumbersome when taking the aligner trays in and out. It’s also taking a really long time to brush and clean my teeth and trays – is it always going to take me close to 10 minutes every time? That’s a lot of time spent cleaning! I read all about how amazing the aligners are, but I wasn’t prepared for the reality of them. Do you have any suggestions for how I can get used to my aligners?

Kenilworth/Wilmette, IL – Chances are good that you’ve seen an advertisement or two for Invisalign. The clear aligner therapy is hyped as being quick, easy and comfortable. But does it really provide the results that it claims, in the way that it claims to?

According to many patients, the marketing hype may be just that – hype. One former patient recently shared her Invisalign journey with Dr. Michael Stosich.

“Like many patients, she saw an advertisement and thought Invisalign sounded like the perfect solution to her smile problems,” says Dr. Stosich, who treats patients in the Chicago area. “But unfortunately, many patients finish Invisalign treatment with smiles far from what they had envisioned.”

Dear Dr. Stosich.,
My teenage daughter needs braces, and has her heart set on Invisalign or iDentity Clear Aligners because she doesn’t want to draw attention to her mouth during her treatment. But I’m worried the treatment will be too expensive and we won’t be able to afford it. How does Invisalign or iDentity Clear Aligner treatment compare to metal braces?
