Is Invisalign right for me?

Invisalign® clear braces are comfortable to wear, effective, and nearly invisible, making them a go to a treatment option for teen and adult patients looking to correct their orthodontic concerns. Clear aligners are a preferred alternative to the traditional bulky and often embarrassing metal braces of your youth. Invisalign is an ideal treatment for adults experiencing orthodontic relapse or who have been putting off ortho treatment.

Invisalign can correct:

  • Straighten misaligned teeth
  • Close Gaps between teeth
  • Correct overcrowding
  • Overbites
  • Cross-bites
  • Underbites

Arlington Heights, IL cosmetic dentist Dr. Brent Engelberg can help you determine if Invisalign is the right solution for correcting your mild to moderate orthodontic dental concerns. We provide comprehensive exams of the teeth and bite. Dr. Engelberg will present all of your treatment options so that you can make informed decisions about improving your oral health.

Do I Qualify For Invisalign?

Every patient has unique oral health needs and personal cosmetic goals. At AH Smiles we treat each of our patients with a personalized basis and provide dental care tailored to their specific needs in order to achieve their optimal results. To determine if you are qualified for Invisalign, Dr.Engelberg will examine your overall oral health and spend time reviewing your personal goals and budget.

Are you experiencing an orthodontic relapse?

Adult patients who had orthodontic treatment in their youth often experience a relapse later in life. For some, orthodontic relapses are a result of not wearing the proper retainer or device after their ortho treatment. Teeth may also shift as a result of tooth loss, bone loss, or aging.

Invisalign is an ideal treatment option for patients with orthodontic relapse. The clear aligners will not distract from your professional or personal life. Aligners are comfortable to wear and make little to no impact on your speech. Many adult patients report that their peers can not even notice that they are wearing their aligners.

What Are The Benefits of Invisalign?

  • Comfortable: The invisible aligners are made of a smooth hard-soft plastic material that reduces irritation of soft tissue.  Unlike metal braces, clear aligners do not cut or agitate the gums.
  • Removable: Invisalign aligners are removable for daily oral hygiene. Patients experience lower rates of tooth discoloration and tooth decay often associated with metal braces. Patients are also able to enjoy a diet without any restrictions during treatment.
  • Discreet: Clear aligners are barely visible to others. Patients enjoy a sense of confidence knowing that others can not tell they are wearing braces. Patients are able to conduct their normal activities without disruption.
