You may be ready to improve your dental alignment, but as an adult you do not have the time required to care for braces and you want to maintain a professional appearance at work or in social settings. Our dentists may have the answer. Call Advocate Dental of Palatine at 847-359-8732 and schedule your appointment with Dr. George Skoog for more information about clear aligners in Palatine, Illinois.
Clear aligners are a great option for patients who want to avoid bulky and unsightly metal braces. This orthodontic option is especially popular among teenagers and adults who are looking for virtually invisible treatments. When you visit our office for your initial consultation, our dentists will examine your mouth and discuss your smile goals with you to determine if clear aligners are the best treatment for you.
Clear aligners are made from smooth, thin plastic and are custom designed and computer generated to fit your smile perfectly. Not only are they very discreet, but they are also very comfortable. Your aligners are removable, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods as well as brush and floss with ease. You will switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks as your treatment progresses. Each new set of aligners will make small changes to the alignment of your teeth, gently guiding them into their proper positions to give you a straight, healthy, beautiful smile.
As your aligners are made from clear plastic, they will need to be cleaned regularly. If you do not clean your aligners frequently, they may cause your teeth to appear yellow, gray or stained.
