    How does Invisalign® work?

    As an Invisalign® Dentist Dr. Durr straightens teeth using a series of aligners. First, an impression of your teeth is taken so that a series of aligners can be created in a dental lab. The aligners themselves are made out of a thermoplastic material that is strong and at the same time flexible in order to be comfortable when worn for long periods of time. The material is virtually invisible.
    The aligners should be worn for 22 hours a day and every two weeks; they need to be switched out with the next one in the series. Over a period of months, the aligners will slowly move teeth into place, making one minor adjustment at a time that is targeted to specific teeth. This helps your teeth to be comfortable as they are moved into position at a manageable pace. Once you are done wearing your aligners, your teeth should be perfectly straight.

    Reasons for Needing an Emergency Dental Visit

    The American Dental Association reported that the number one cause of adult tooth damage every year is playing sports. This spans all types of athletics and creates the need for emergency appointments throughout Matteson IL. Most adults don’t have the time to play for an organized league, even a casual one. This means that even a backyard game of basketball can lead to a tooth being damaged or knocked out. The same holds true for kids playing sports throughout the 60443 area. There are ways to protect yourself like wearing a mouth guard but when an emergency strikes call (708) 980-0110.
    Car accidents are another leading cause of tooth injury. While the enamel on your teeth is strong, it may not be strong enough to prevent your tooth from breaking when colliding with the steering wheel. With millions of accidents a year, teeth are a common victim. We recommend that patients of Progressive Dental & Associates get examined at a local emergency room after being in a car accident, just to make sure that they haven’t sustained any physical injuries. Afterwards, patients in the Matteson IL area should call for a dentist appointment. The emergency room does not treat tooth damage, so you will need to see both types of medical providers.

    Maintaining Your Aligners

    How do I care for my aligners?

    Dr. Durr recommends that patients remove their aligner and rinse it with warm water on a daily basis. You may also want to brush them with a soft toothbrush.

    Attachments

    Some patients need to wear attachments or ridges in order to ensure that their teeth move into place perfectly. An attachment is a clear bump that is made of an enamel colored composite and secured to the teeth. Bumps on your aligners will grip them in order to hold the aligner in place. Ridges work in a similar way only an indent is created instead of a raised bump. This can be necessary for more complicated cases to ensure that a particular tooth, or several teeth, move into place like they should.

    Checkups

    Patients of will need to see Dr. Durr for checkups to ensure that teeth are moving like they are supposed to. Fortunately, since the aligners are made at the beginning of the procedure, these appointments are less frequent than if you were wearing metal braces. With traditional braces, a metal bracket is placed on each tooth, and a wire is threaded between them then held in place using rubber bands. The wires need to be adjusted on a regular basis in order to keep teeth moving in the right direction. This requires frequent office visits. For people with busy schedules and a hectic life – this is inconvenient, and any delay in appointment scheduling can prolong the timeframe that braces need to be worn for. As an Invisalign® Dentist Dr. Durr sees patients less frequently because the checkups are not to adjust anything, just to make sure that the procedure is working. This is far more convenient for patients throughout the 60443 area.

    Treatment Time

    For most patients living in the Matteson IL area, the procedure takes around twelve months. The exact timeframe will depend on your situation, and only Dr. Durr can tell you how long they will need to be worn. Overall, the treatment time can be less than with metal braces. This is in part because you don’t have to schedule appointments to keep your teeth moving. Simply pull out a new aligner.

    Finding an Invisalign® Dentist

    Not all dentists offer Invisalign®. You have to receive special training in order to provide it to patients, and Dr. Durr is one of the best Invisalign® Dentists in Illinois. To learn if the procedure is right for you, schedule an appointment with our Progressive Dental & Associates office by calling (708) 980-0110.

    How will Invisalign® impact my life?

    Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® has minimal impact on your daily life. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, preserving your natural appearance. Moreover, as they only need to be worn for 22 hours a day, they do not disrupt your eating habits. This means you can enjoy your favorite foods, go on dates, or indulge in sticky treats without worrying about food getting stuck or wires getting displaced. The flexibility of removing the aligners during important conversations or work presentations further adds to the convenience. In terms of speech, it is common for patients to take a few days to adjust to wearing aligners, but any slight lisps typically disappear as they become accustomed to speaking while wearing them.

    Staff was very friendly and professional. Dr. Durr was kind and gentle. Did not feel rushed and he answered all of my questions. He even asked permission to touch my teeth because I told him I was having pain. No dentist has ever done that. I am an extremely fearful patient and I felt comfortable and cared for during my visit. Thank you!
