The advantage of Invisalign® at Get It Straight Orthodontics

February 9th, 2010

Part of what makes Invisalign "work" is that it's customizable for just about anybody. To find out if you are the right candidate for Invisalign treatment, the first thing our team at Get It Straight Orthodontics do is to take an impression of your teeth as they are now and digitize it. Using special software, we look at the current positioning of your teeth and compare it to the way your teeth should look.

Next we use special software to map out the exact path your teeth will take from the beginning of your treatment to the end. Based on the results, a set of custom aligners are created just for your teeth. Throughout the course of treatment, you will be required to wear these clear, removable aligners one at a time; each one moving your teeth closer and closer to their final, perfectly aligned position. And since the aligners are virtually invisible, nobody around you will even know you are wearing braces!

Did you know Dr. Warshawsky is part of the Elite 100 "Century Club?" This club is made up of the top 100 orthodontists in the world using Invisalign. If you have questions about Invisalign, or would like to find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign treatment, please give us a call.

Ask Dr. Neil: Why is it so important to have straight teeth?

February 5th, 2010

Some people wonder why Drs. Neil, Bock and Kristofor, as well as our team at Get It Straight Orthodontics work so tirelessly to give our patients straight teeth. Of course it’s nice to have a smile full of evenly aligned teeth, but did you know that straightening your teeth can keep them healthier? Straight teeth lead to better oral hygiene, increasing your chances of keeping your own natural teeth for a lifetime. Straight teeth are less prone to decay, because they collect less plaque—the sticky colorless substance that forms on our teeth and leads to tooth decay; and they are easier to keep clean!

If you’re wondering whether your teeth might cause problems because they are out of alignment, give us a call to set up a consultation. Drs. Warshawsky, Kristofor and Bock can help you decide whether or not you will benefit from orthodontic treatment at Get It Straight Orthodontics. In just one visit, you’ll soon know why Get it Straight Orthodontics is Chicago's trusted orthodontic provider.
