Around 4.5 million Americans wear orthodontic appliances every year to straighten crooked teeth or to correct crowded teeth. At least 80% of that number are under the age of 18 as the ideal age is 10 to 14 years of age. The orthodontic appliance, or braces, have been in use for around 110 years and really became popular after 1950. With metal brackets cemented to a tooth and a wire arch connecting all the brackets, the arch is tightened manually in areas that need to push or pull certain teeth. With regular adjustments this process usually averages
around two years. Invisalign was introduced about two decades ago and now gives you a much-improved solution or procedure to achieve straight teeth without a mouth full of metal.

Imperfect teeth will have an immediate impact on your smile. Your smile has been proven to be the foundation for your self-esteem and your self-confidence. If you aren’t happy with your smile lets do something about it.

The first step in getting your teeth straightened out and giving yourself a smile makeover is to call Dr. Dolgov at 815-939-2520. He and his staff at Bourbonnias Family Dental will evaluate your personal situation and discuss how we can get you started on an Invisalign program. Feel free to stop by our office at 498 Brown Blvd., Bourbonnias, IL 60914, if you would like to meet any of the staff before you schedule an evaluation.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the result of introducing modern technology to the dental industry. A series of clear plastic trays are created for you to put into your mouth. They have been designed to push certain teeth at certain times. By wearing the trays on the average of 22 hours a day, you replace the tray every two weeks. The new tray has been engineered to continue that pressure or to introduce pressure on a different tooth. The Invisalign process has now produced 700 patents worldwide and has now been successfully used by over 4 million patients in 20 years.

The Invisalign Process

After we have agreed together to proceed with this method, we will start with a very accurate, 3D image of your teeth with a digital scanner. This information is loaded into a CAD/CAM device. This stands for computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing. Prior to even making your very first tray we can show you a computer-generated image of your smile upon completion. No guess work. That will be your smile. The trays and the computer aided design can move your teeth horizontally, vertically and even rotate them. All with slight pressure. We will still schedule to see you to monitor progress but that is all we will need to do during those visits.

The Benefits of Invisalign

One of the leading benefits is that they are more comfortable than traditional metal braces. There is no tightening required because that is what you achieve every two weeks in putting a new tray in. Of course, they are far less noticeable. A terrific feature for you as an adult in the workplace. Invisalign has become very popular with the teenage audience because they simply are difficult to see. They are also beneficial in correcting the gaps in your front teeth and correcting an overbite as well.

Proper Care of your Invisalign trays and maintain your Good Oral Hygiene Habits

What is so great about Invisalign is that the tray is removable. Yes, you can still eat corn on the cob. Or enjoy an apple. These are foods that aren’t enjoyable with traditional braces. We will want you to continue to brush your teeth twice a day and continue to floss at lease once a day by simply removing the tray. You can brush the tray also and rinse, but the program will work best for you if you keep the tray in place for the 22 hours a day. That ever present damaging plaque will still be in your mouth and sticking to your teeth. Your good oral hygiene habits are every bit as important now as ever. An average Invisalign treatment program will be finished in 12 to 18 months. The system will generate enough trays to move your teeth to that finished computer image that you saw upon evaluation.

The Costs Involved with Your Invisalign Program and the Insurance Coverage Available

The costs that will be associated with your Invisalign program will be discussed at the time of your evaluation and consultation. There might be a few factors that might make the pricing more complex. The number of plastic trays manufactured to get you from point A to point B will be the single biggest contributing factor. The administrative staff at Bourbonnias Family Dental will inquire with your dental insurance carrier to determine the amount of coverage for the procedure. If there will be a balance due a payment plan can and will be discussed if that is your wish. We also accept all major credit cards. We may also revisit our other options if the budget is a driving factor in carrying out our plan.
