Learn how our dentists in Gurnee, IL, transform smiles with this invisible orthodontic solution.
A Closer Look at Invisalign
An alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign treatment can correct a range of misalignment issues using a series of custom aligners. Unlike braces, however, this orthodontic alternative is nearly undetectable while worn, making it an ideal solution for teens and adults alike. Depending on your unique needs, treatment can take anywhere between six and 18 months.
Why So Many Patients Choose Invisalign
When you think of orthodontic treatment, you may picture bulky wires and brackets that irritate the inside of your mouth. Invisalign aligners, however, are crafted from smooth, flexible plastic that won’t bother your tongue or cheeks.
Many patients may feel self-conscious about smiling while wearing braces. Fortunately, these clear aligners are virtually imperceptible against teeth; no one is likely to notice you’re even wearing them. With Invisalign, you can smile confidently in photos, at work, and beyond.
Removable trays make it easy to practice good oral hygiene: you won’t have to brush and floss around wires and brackets that trap food particles. With aligners, you won’t have to change your oral hygiene routine or give up any of your favorite foods, like you might with traditional braces.
Are You Ready for a Straighter Smile? Take Advantage of Invisible Orthodontics
Misaligned teeth aren’t just a cosmetic issue — they can take a toll on your overall dental health by making it more difficult to clean your teeth properly. If severe enough, orthodontic issues can also lead to jaw pain and headaches.
You don’t need to visit an orthodontist and get braces to address these concerns: our dentists in Gurnee have helped many patients straighten their smiles with this sleek, comfortable solution. To learn more about if Invisalign is right for you, get in touch with Delany Dental Care or call:

Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign? Factors to Consider
While this incredible innovation in orthodontics has helped many, it’s not the best solution for every patient. Our dentists will check a few things to determine your candidacy for Invisalign and develop a customized treatment plan.
Severity of Misalignment
Invisalign is ideal for those with mild to moderate bite issues. If you have more severe malocclusion, you may need traditional braces that apply more pressure onto teeth. Even if aren’t quite sure if you qualify for aligners, it’s worth exploring your options with our dentists at a consultation.
Your Current Oral HealthTooth infections, decay, and gum disease must be addressed before starting Invisalign. Fortunately, our team is skilled in all aspects of general dentistry and will do everything needed to get you ready for this orthodontic treatment.
Dedication to Treatment
To get transformative results in a timeframe that you’re happy with, you need to have the discipline to stick to the treatment in full. Patients will need to wear their aligners 20-22 hours a day to get the results they’re after. Those that are diligent about wearing their custom aligners see results in the shortest amount of time.
What to Expect
From This Orthodontic Treatment Process
Invisalign can straighten your smile in six to 18 months, depending on your unique case.
Get the Most Out of Invisalign Tips for Maintaining Results
With proper care, you’ll be able to enjoy a straight, symmetrical smile for years.
Practice Good Oral Hygiene
Continue to brush twice daily and floss once daily after your Invisalign treatment wraps up to keep plaque and bacteria buildup at bay.
Wear Your Retainer
It’s crucial to wear your retainer at night after you’ve completed your Invisalign treatment. This helps preserve the work all of the aligners have done. Not wearing your retainer regularly can cause your teeth to shift out of their new position.

We consider ourselves your smile partner; after treatment, make sure to visit us at least every six months so we can perform routine dental cleanings and prevent oral health issues from developing.
