About Invisalign invisible teeth aligners

Invisalign essentially does the same thing as traditional braces but in quite a different and high-tech way. Like classic braces, this method moves teeth gradually with continuous, low-force pressure. However, it uses transparent aligners rather than brackets and wires to nudge teeth into correct alignment.

The process is simple, utilizing a progressive series of aligners, moving teeth incrementally. You will wear each aligner for the prescribed length of time, discard it, and move on to the next one. Teeth gradually straighten as you progress through the series of aligners. Meanwhile, you can eat what you like and brush your teeth with ease because they are removable.

What is Invisalign?

Hi, my name is Dr. Kevin Kellerman with Kellerman Dental in Glen Carbon. Today I want to talk about Invisalign®.

Invisalign® can be a great option for children and adults who want to straighten their teeth.

How does the Invisalign® procedure work?

Invisalign® works by utilizing a series of clear aligners. For example, if you have ten aligners, you would wear each aligner for one week.

After ten weeks, your teeth would be in the position you would want them to be in, nice and straight.

What are the benefits of Invisalign® vs. traditional braces?

Invisalign® works faster than traditional wires and brackets. It is also more gentle on your gums, cheeks, and lips than traditional braces.

A lot of people appreciate this. It is also easier to clean your teeth with Invisalign® because you can remove them to brush and floss.

Eating is much more comfortable because you take your Invisalign® out, and food doesn’t get caught in between your teeth.

Invisalign® is a great option for anyone who wants to straighten their teeth. It’s discreet, fast, and comfortable.

The benefits of Invisalign clear aligners

Why do patients choose Invisalign rather than metal braces? There are many reasons, including:

  • Cosmetic orthodontics: Aligners are transparent and formed to the shape of your smile, so they are barely noticeable when worn.
  • Accelerated treatment: Straighten your smile up to 50 percent faster with a weekly aligner change schedule.
  • Proven effectiveness: Invisalign uses SmartForce features and SmartTrack materials, which move teeth with 75 percent greater predictability, according to Align Tech data.
  • Improved comfort: Many orthodontic patients complain of metal braces being heavy, bulky, and generally uncomfortable. By contrast, Invisalign aligners are lightweight, ultra-thin, and designed for comfort. Advanced SmartTrack materials provide a better fit and greater ease in removing or replacing aligners.
  • Treatable cases: Invisalign is appropriate for orthodontic concerns ranging from mildly crooked teeth to complex issues with significant misalignment. It is available for teens and adults.

Take the first step today! Are you ready to begin your journey towards a healthier, more beautiful, straighter smile? Just give us a call at (618) 228-3100 and schedule an Invisalign consultation with Dr. Kellerman.

Invisalign at Kellerman Dental

Invisalign is something that I’m really passionate about. I think that it is a great way to not only give you function back to your teeth, but also give you a really nice looking smile. So whether or not you just have a couple crooked teeth that you’re hoping to fix, or you have issues where you’re clenching and grinding your jaw, you have pain. Invisalign is something that can help you with that, and so many people are actually able to do Invisalign rather than traditional braces, and they just don’t know it. Some of the misconceptions people have about Invisalign is that it might not work as well as traditional braces, but there’s actually so many clinical studies where it can be more effective and faster than traditional braces.

The great thing about Invisalign, it’s really for all ages. Any adult is eligible for Invisalign and even teenagers are great candidates for Invisalign. The process of getting started with Invisalign is really simple. We use a camera to take four or five photos of your teeth, and we use our digital scanner to record the position of your teeth, which we then send to the Invisalign lab. We love using the iTero scanner in our office. It’s much more comfortable than traditional goopy impressions, and the results are a lot more predictable.
