Metal mouth is a nickname of the past when you choose to get clear braces in Naperville.


Crooked, crowded or gapping smiles can affect your appearance and your self-esteem (not to mention, it can make cleaning teeth much harder). If you want to get a straighter smile, but think you are too old to sport metal braces, then you need to talk to our Naperville dentist Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi about Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-fitted trays (known as aligners) that fit over the top or bottom set of teeth to help move your teeth to correct common dental problems. This includes crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, crowding and a variety of different malocclusions like overbites and underbites.

How does it work?

Our Naperville dentist, Dr. Zomorrodi, designs each aligner in your treatment plan so that they move specific teeth a certain amount until your smile becomes straighter. Each aligner is worn for about 20-22 hours each day for two weeks, after which they are replaced with the next set in the series. Each new set will fit tighter to provide the right amount of controlled force to move your teeth.

What are the benefits?

When you get clear braces you know you’ll enjoy getting the same results you would with traditional braces without other people noticing your clear aligners. This means you can enjoy talking to those around you, or conducting a presentation for work, without feeling self-conscious about your treatment.

These clear, plastic custom-made aligners are also notoriously more comfortable than traditional braces. The metal can be irritating to gums and once the brackets are applied to your teeth they are permanently attached until the treatment is over. Invisalign aligners, on the other hand, can be removed during mealtimes and while brushing and flossing. This not only makes it more comfortable but also more convenient.

Adults who opt for Invisalign will also enjoy a shorter treatment plan than with traditional braces. The average length of treatment for Invisalign is about one year for adults.
