Hundreds of people in need of orthodontics may be avoiding this due to not wanting to wear metal braces on their teeth either because of the look or because they believe wearing them may be uncomfortable. Due to advances in technology, one of the solutions for these people may be Invisalign®, a virtually invisible alternative to metal braces.

Very Caring and professional staff! Most definitely the best dentists I have ever been to.

What is Invisalign®

Invisalign® are custom-made plastic aligners comfortably worn on the teeth. The aligners are changed every two weeks as your teeth adjust to their new fit. While you wear Invisalign® aligners 24 hours a day, they can be removed for meals, special occasions when you don’t want others to see them, or even just brushing your teeth. This is much different than having to wear traditional metal braces all the time for years on end. Also, because Invisalign® aligners are clear plastic, most people may never know you even wear something to correct your teeth.

Custom-made in Gurnee, Illinois by the Invisalign® specialists at Delany Dental Care, this treatment can correct overbites and underbites, widely spaced teeth and overly crowded teeth.


The advantages of using Invisalign® to correct these problems are numerous. The aligners are custom-made for comfort and usually only need to be worn for about a year. Traditional braces need to be worn for two or more years. Though each aligner is switched every two weeks, you do not need to make an appointment twice a month. Simply pick up your new aligners at the Delany Dental Care office and get back to your busy life. Your official visits will only be every four to six weeks. Because you may remove the aligners any time you wish, you do not have to worry about food getting stuck in them, and do not have to go through brackets that must be screwed or unscrewed.

If there is any discomfort, it is most likely with patients who have sensitive teeth and gums when switching aligners. If you use Invisalign® the way the doctors at Delany Dental Care recommend, you will see your teeth, and your smile, improve in no time.
