Clear Aligners

Clear aligners at Wicker Park Dental Studio provide a modern, nearly invisible solution to teeth straightening, combining convenience with effectiveness for our Chicago patients.

How Do Clear Aligners Work for Teeth Straightening?

Clear aligners use a series of custom-made, transparent trays that fit snugly over your teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make incremental adjustments to the position of your teeth, gently guiding them into the desired alignment over time.

What Are the Benefits of Choosing Clear Aligners?

Benefits of clear aligners include:

  • Discreetness: Nearly invisible, they allow you to straighten your teeth without noticeable braces.
  • Comfort: Smooth plastic aligners without metal brackets or wires.
  • Convenience: Removable for eating, brushing, and flossing.
  • Customized Treatment: Tailored specifically to your dental alignment needs.

How Long Is the Treatment Process with Clear Aligners?

The duration of treatment with clear aligners varies depending on individual needs but generally ranges from 6 to 18 months. Regular dental visits are required to monitor progress and receive new sets of aligners.

What Lifestyle Adjustments Are Needed When Using Clear Aligners?

While clear aligners offer flexibility, certain adjustments are necessary:

  • Wearing aligners for 20-22 hours a day.
  • Removing aligners while eating or drinking anything other than water.
  • Maintaining good oral hygiene to prevent staining and decay.
