The aligners are custom-made using advanced 3-D computer imaging technology. Invisalign aligners are worn for a couple of weeks and move the teeth incrementally into position until they achieve the final desired correction.
Invisalign's advantage and appeal are that it uses clear aligners that are more cosmetic, more comfortable, and more convenient than other orthodontic appliances and operate with minimal interference. Without worrying about breaking their orthodontic appliances or sharp poking wires, teens and adults can eat all of their favorite foods and engage in sports with Invisalign. Furthermore, because the aligners are completely removable, there is no need to clean between any brackets or wires that are attached to the aligners, so tooth brushing and flossing are much easier.
With Invisalign Chicago patients can notice several advantages over traditional braces, including:
Oral Health: Invisalign eliminates the use of metal brackets and wires, reducing the risk of cuts or damage to surrounding oral tissues. Additionally, the removable aligners allow for better and more regular cleaning of the tooth's surface, minimizing the chances of decay and promoting optimal oral hygiene.
Aesthetic Appeal: While traditional braces have improved over time, Invisalign provides a clear advantage in terms of appearance. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing individuals to undergo orthodontic treatment without drawing attention to their braces.
Treatment Time: In many cases, Invisalign can yield faster results compared to traditional braces, despite requiring a similar financial investment. The advanced technology and customized treatment plans of Invisalign contribute to more efficient and timely teeth alignment.
Comfort: Invisalign aligners offer a higher level of comfort compared to traditional braces. Their smooth plastic surface reduces irritation and discomfort often associated with metal brackets and wires. Moreover, since the aligners are removable, there is more flexibility for adjustments and an overall more comfortable experience.
By choosing Invisalign Chicago patients, visiting Strobel Dentistry, can enjoy improved oral health, a discreet treatment option, potentially faster results, and enhanced comfort throughout their orthodontic journey.

If you decide you want to see exactly what your Invisalign treatment would look like, we will start with a records appointment. This takes 50 minutes; during this visit, we collect all the necessary impressions, x-rays, and pictures to send to Invisalign. They then give us back a computer program that the doctor can manipulate to achieve the exact desired movement. The records appointment is $300, and that cost is put towards the total cost of treatment if you move forward with Invisalign within 90 days of the case viewing visit.
After records, you come back to see the doctor in 3 weeks to view your case. This is when you get to see exactly what your course of alignment would look like, get a definitive cost and length of treatment, and make your decision. Treatment cost includes the following:
A set of Invisalign aligners is worn for two weeks, and you only take them off to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Every time you replace one aligner with the next, your teeth will move - gradually, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position your doctor prescribes. Approximately every six weeks, you will visit our office to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. The average treatment time is between 9-15 months, and the average number of aligners worn is between 18 and 30, but both will vary depending on the individual.
Join the ranks of hundreds of thousands of satisfied teens and adults who have achieved incredible smiles with the Invisalign system. The process is simple and easy to follow:
Wear Aligners: You will wear the custom-made aligners for 22 hours each day, only removing them for eating, brushing, or flossing. The aligners exert gentle pressure on your teeth, gradually guiding them into the desired position.
Aligner Changes: Every two weeks, you will transition to a new set of aligners. Each new set is specifically designed to continue the progress of your tooth movement, bringing you one step closer to your desired smile.
Regular Check-ins: Approximately every six weeks, you will have a progress report appointment with your doctor. During these visits, your doctor will monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to ensure your treatment is on track.
Treatment Duration: The length of your Invisalign treatment depends on the extent of tooth movement required. On average, the treatment lasts around 11 months, but it can range from as short as five months to up to 2 years.
It does vary, but a typical Invisalign treatment averages $4700. If you have insurance, they may cover a portion of that cost provided there is no break in coverage during treatment; this is something we help you determine before you begin.
