Clear Aligners in the Belvidere/Rockford Area

Fast Orthodontic Treatment Without Pain and Embarrassment

Orthodontic treatment is often necessary for a straight, healthy smile. Straight teeth are easier to clean and less prone to causing oral health issues such as decay, gum disease, and further misalignment. Individuals who experience dental misalignment can have it corrected by undergoing orthodontic treatment, but treatment with metal braces is known to be uncomfortable and slow acting, often taking at least two years to achieve the desired smile.

Fortunately, patients of Chapko & Shah Modern Dentistry have the option of a fast acting, comfortable, and discreet alternative to metal braces called Invisalign.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an advanced orthodontic system that uses clear aligner trays instead of metal brackets and wires to straighten smiles. The trays are made of patented SmartTrack® material that guide your teeth into place over time. Best of all, Invisalign aligners can be easily removed when eating and drinking as long as they’re in for at least 22 hours each day.
