Carol Stream's Invisalign Experts
If you're looking for a way to straighten your teeth without the hassle and discomfort of traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners may be the perfect solution for you. At Razi Orthodontics, our expert team has years of experience creating beautiful, healthy smiles for patients of all ages in Carol Stream and surrounding areas.
How Invisalign® works
Invisalign clear aligners are designed to gradually move your teeth into their proper positions over time. Our team will create a custom treatment plan just for you, using advanced technology like digital impressions and 3D imaging to create a precise, personalized set of aligners.
One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign is that the aligners are virtually invisible, so you can straighten your teeth discreetly and confidently. You can also remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss, making it easy to maintain good oral hygiene throughout your treatment.
It's also important to understand that no two people are the same. Every person is unique and every smile is unique, so every patient will respond to their treatment differently. Clear aligners like Invisalign® work in a slightly different and less invasive way than traditional braces to straighten teeth. That makes it harder to determine how long it may take with your aligners before you see results. The average is somewhere between 6 and 18 months, but it can vary from one patient to the next.
When it comes down to it, your estimated treatment time is going to be based on how well you follow our recommended guidelines. You're going to need to wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours every single day throughout the course of your treatment. You have to stick to the program, because straying from the routine even a little bid can add extra time to your treatment time with us. There's a good deal of personal responsibility involved with this method of orthodontic treatment.

Benefits of Invisalign®
When it comes to orthodontic treatment, many people are interested in Invisalign clear aligners because of their virtual invisibility. But Invisalign offers more than just discreetness; it also provides a range of other benefits over traditional braces.
No Uncomfortable Wires or Brackets
With traditional braces, metal wires and brackets can be uncomfortable and even painful for some patients. Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic material, so you won't have to worry about cuts or irritation on the inside of your mouth. The aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth, and they won't shift or move around like brackets can.
No Food Restrictions
One of the biggest frustrations of traditional braces is the food restrictions. Sticky, chewy, or hard foods can damage the brackets or wires, leading to longer treatment times. With Invisalign, you don't have to worry about any food restrictions at all. Simply remove your aligners before eating, and put them back in when you're finished.
Fewer Appointments Needed for Adjustments
Traditional braces require regular adjustments to tighten the wires and keep the treatment on track. With Invisalign, you'll need fewer appointments overall, since you'll receive several sets of aligners at once. You'll switch to a new set of aligners every one to two weeks, and each set will gradually shift your teeth into the desired position.
Less Discomfort During Treatment
The wires and brackets of traditional braces can cause pain or discomfort for some patients, especially after adjustments. Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic material, so you won't have to worry about any discomfort during treatment. The aligners are designed to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position, without any sudden or painful movements.
