Invisalign

Getting started with treatment in the Chicago area couldn't be easier. In fact, you can be on your way to straighter teeth and a beautiful smile within weeks of visiting University Associates in Dentistry.

Step 1: Schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Delfs

During this first step you will need to make an appointment with Invisalign® Certified Dentist, Dr. Delfs.

During the initial visit, Dr. Delfs will help you decide on your course of treatment. She will take bite impressions of your teeth and send them, along with a set of precise instructions, to Invisalign®.

Step 2: Invisalign® Makes Your Aligners

Invisalign® uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to transform your bite impressions into a custom-made series of clear and removable aligners. There may be as many as 48 in the series or as few as 12, depending on your individual treatment plan.

Step 3: You Receive Your Aligners in a Few Weeks

During your next visit to University Associates in Dentistry, you will receive your first set aligners. Dr. Delfs will most likely give you a few additional sets for you to wear before you return for your next visit.

Step 4: You Wear Your Aligners

You'll wear each set of aligners day and night for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months, but will vary from case to case. You'll visit University Associates in Dentistry only about every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

Step 5: You've Finished The Treatment

Congratulations! When you're finished wearing each aligner in the series, your treatment will be complete and you will have the beautiful smile you've always wanted.
