Your smile is the first thing people notice about you, it is a reflection of your personality, your spirit. A beautiful smile not only enhances your overall appearance and improves self-confidence, but also positively impacts your personal, social and professional relationships. In today’s aesthetically conscious society, people are looking for options to improve their smile and appearance, look younger, and feel more confident. Traditionally, smile makeovers with porcelain veneers were the quickest way to an instant smile makeover. However, porcelain veneers are not only much costlier, but in many cases significantly more invasive as well.
That is why many adults are now turning to less expensive, non-invasive smile makeover options such as Invisalign clear braces and teeth whitening to enhance their smile. Invisalign clear braces is a modern, high-tech solution to straighter teeth, which is preferred to traditional metal braces by adults. Now your Invisalign treatment is faster than ever – 50% faster. So you can have a stunning smile just in time for that important occasion – a wedding, reunion or, graduation.
The Invisalign system is a modern, high-tech approach to orthodontics by using a series of clear, comfortable and removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth without metal braces. Invisalign is a patented proprietary system that uses 3D modeling software and cutting-edge manufacturing technology to provide a removable and virtually invisible solution for straightening teeth. The Invisalign aligners are made of a strong, BPA-free medical-grade plastic that can correct spacing, crowding, and bite problems with great precision. Each Invisalign aligner is worn for approximately 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little until they have straightened to the final position. Invisalign straightens teeth, which leads to not only a more attractive smile, but a healthier one as well. Straight teeth mean healthier gums, easier cleanings, improved chewing and speech, and decreased risk of tooth trauma and wear.
Its easy to see that a straight, well aligned smile looks beautiful and feels great. But that kind of smile often means its also a healthy smile. So put yourselfin a healthy stae of mind, and take a look at the many benefits of a properly aligned smile with Invisalign
Easier cleanings + healthier gums
Signs of periodontal disease, such as swollen gums and redness, can surface due to teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Clinical studies have shown that when teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit tighter around the teeth, which can lead to better periodontal health. Since the Invisalign systems greatest advantage is its ability to align teeth, your gum health will improve after Invisalign treatment. And since you can brush and floss normally with Invisalign, unlike with traditional braces, you can more easily prevent tooth decay and related periodontal disease. One of the Invisalign systems best qualities is that it uses no metal bands, brackets, or wires that may trap food and plaque like traditional braces do. And since the removable nature of Invisalign allows you to maintain good oral hygiene habits, you may also reduce chances of plaque buildup, tooth decay, and periodontal disease.
Improved chewing + reduced wear
Improperly aligned teeth can lead to premature wear of tooth enamel and dental restorations. Because tooth wear is such a slow process and often without noticeable symptoms, most people don’t notice conditions until there is a significant loss of enamel or fracturing of teeth, dental fillings and porcelain crowns. When you leave incorrectly positioned teeth and jaws untreated, it can lead to speech difficulties and uncomfortable chewing issues. Invisalign treatment can improve both of these problems by giving you better-aligned teeth and jaws.
Overall health + wellnesss
Think of your mouth as a window to the health of your body. Your teeth and gums – and how they look to others when you smile – say a lot about your overall health. If you’re taking good care of both, you’re probably taking good care of the rest of you. Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by bacteria. Left untreated, they can cause mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath, and possible tooth loss. Studies by the American Dental Association have shown that oral infections can also lead to other more serious ailments such as heart disease, stroke, pneumonia and diabetes. Invisalign aligners make daily oral hygiene easier, thus reducing the risk of possible problems. And correctly aligned teeth can also alleviate the issues that can be caused by an improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems, and increased wear on the tooth enamel. Invisalign effectively addresses all of these orthodontic issues, so you’ll have the confidence of a great smile and increase the likelihood of improved oral health.
ORA Dental Studio is Chicago’s #1 Invisalign provider and was the first dental group in Chicago to offer the Acceledent System revolutionary new orthodontic technology that helps Invisalign aligners work 50% faster. The average Invisalign case takes about 10 to 12 months and with the accelerated treatment time can be cut in half to only 5 to 6 months. The Acceledent is a lightweight oral appliance, similar to an athletic mouth guard, which is worn for only 20 minutes per day to help Invisalign treatment work significantly faster. It accomplishes this by generating small vibrations called ‘micropulses’ to gently accelerate tooth movement by stimulating a biological response of bone, as the Invisalign aligners guide the teeth. These micropulses also makes the Invisalign experience even more comfortable from start to finish as patients have reported significantly less tooth tenderness and discomfort.

But a confident smile isn’t the only benefit of correcting your dental issues with custom-made Invisalign aligners your health can be positively impacted as well. Learn more about several common issues below that an experienced Invisalign expert at ORA Dental Studio can work with you to correct. Invisalign clear braces is effective at treating a wide variety of orthodontic issues including – crowded teeth, spacing between teeth, overbite, underbite, deep bite, and an open bite.
Typically due to abnormal continued growth of the jaw bone. When teeth are missing, this can also be caused by the surrounding teeth shifting due to extra space. Spacing issues can lead to gum problems, periodontal pockets, and increased risk of periodontal (gum) disease.
This occurs when there is simply a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can get worse over time. Crowding also leads to greater plaque accumulation, gingivitis, tooth decay and increased chance of gum disease.
What people refer to as an “overbite” is known to dental professionals as “overjet”. It occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It’s typically caused by genetics, bad oral habits, or overdevelopment of the bone that supports the teeth. Typically leads to worn, chipped teeth.
This occurs when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and the sides of the mouth. This can lead to abnormal tooth chipping and wear, gum recession, and tooth mobility.
Occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth and is caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both. This can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars, which can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems (TMJ).
