Invisalign™ Clear Aligners

So clear that you can barely see them!

At this point, just about everyone know’s about Invisalign™. What many people don’t realize is that Invisalign™, and Invisalign Teen™, have lots of other amazing benefits when it comes to your orthodontic experience. There’s more than just being really difficult to see.

Some other benefits of Invisalign™, and Invisalign Teen™, are that they’re comfortable, fit your lifestyle, and they’re easy to clean. With the Invisalign™ system you can eat what you want by simply removing the trays! Because of that, they’re incredibly easy to clean – making sure your smile is bright and clear.


Invisalign™ clear aligners are designed to fit snugly on your teeth while gently correcting any issues. This custom fit combined with a transparent, medical-grade plastic construction makes them undetectable to outside observers. If cleaned properly after each meal, they are also resistant to stain and discoloration.

Invisalign™ is available at our Elmhurst Orthodontic Office as well as our Forest Park Orthodontic Office.


There are some foods that can damage traditional braces, or your teeth while you are wearing them. With Invisalign™ clear aligners, you can remove your plastic trays before eating or brushing your teeth. This will prevent discoloration of teeth or hard to reach plaque buildup, as well as allowing you to clean your clear aligners more thoroughly.


The only maintenance that your Invisalign™ clear retainers will require is regular brushing with toothpaste and warm water. Every morning and evening, as well as after each meal remove your clear retainers and brush them with warm water and toothpaste, or a similar cleaning solution recommended by your orthodontist.
