About Teeth Aligners
Some men and women did not require or weren't able to have braces in their youth, but they now have some spacing or crowding problems that do not allow them to have a straight, pretty smile. Clear teeth straightening trays are tight fitting covers for the teeth created with see through acrylic, and sometimes plastic material that delicately repositions teeth into a straighter look. Using various sets of aligners over a specified course of time, clear teeth aligners are able to transform moderately crowded teeth and spacing issues for straighter, healthier teeth. Clear aligners are typically preferred by adults over traditional orthodontics since they are unnoticeable and can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Irving Park in Chicago, IL discuss teeth straightening alternatives, including clear teeth aligners during regular appointments.
What to Expect
Each tray of clear aligners are uniquely fitted depending on the individual's present teeth alignment. Each tray of aligners are made based on impressions, X-rays, and images. The patient will take home 3 - 4 sets of trays at their appointment and our dentists will verify that the initial set fits as they should so that modifications can be made. Our clients need to wear their aligners as much as possible. The trays should be removed for brushing and flossing, as well as eating. Within a few weeks, a new set of trays will be provided during a brief appointment at DentalWorks - Irving Park.

The estimated timeframe needed is usually discussed by our dentists at the consultation. the aligners will be worn daily until the teeth are straight. Progression checks at DentalWorks - Irving Park will be given at each appointment so that the straightening can be assessed. Our dentists will reassure patients so they have a full understanding of the ongoing progress.
