If you have crowded, gapped, or crooked teeth, eating food can be difficult. So can smiling and laughing. At Windy City Dental Implants, we believe that everybody deserves to have access to teeth straighteners. That’s why Dr. Ogbara offers clear braces in Chicago, IL.
With these custom-printed clear aligner trays, you can straighten your teeth in as little as six months. Simply visit our conveniently located offices every few weeks to pick up new sets of aligners and wear these clear braces for at least 22 hours each day. This invisible orthodontic treatment will gradually bring your smile into proper alignment. Your friends and family may not notice the trays, but they’ll certainly notice the results!
Using traditional bracket-and-wire braces as teeth straighteners, you can expect to spend hours in your orthodontist’s chair every few months. You also won’t be able to eat many foods, from corn on the cob to sticky candy. With clear braces, you can eat your favorite foods, whatever they are. All you must do is remember to brush and floss your teeth after you eat.
Because Dr. Ogbara custom-prints aligner trays based on detailed scans of your mouth, clear teeth straighteners are far more comfortable than their traditional counterparts as well. Being able to change the trays more frequently than braces wires makes for a less achy jaw and greater overall satisfaction.
The first question most of our patients ask is how much clear braces will cost. The exact answer to this question depends on a variety of factors, including the type of treatment you need and the number of aligner trays you will use. However, clear orthodontic aligners are often less expensive than bracket-and-wire braces. In addition, the Windy City Dental Implants team works with multiple third-party dental financing companies as well as with your dental insurance company to make your orthodontics as affordable as possible.
