Explore the Benefits of Invisalign Dentistry

At Lakota Dental, we take pride in the many smile makeovers we provide for patients in our service area, including Joliet, Illinois. One of the ways we do that is through our Invisalign treatment for teens and adults. Invisalign allows our patients to straighten their teeth without displaying a mouthful of cumbersome braces every time they smile.

But the benefits of seeking treatment from a qualified Invisalign dentist aren’t solely cosmetic. The Invisalign system of using clear, removable aligner trays to gently push teeth into their proper place also delivers some valuable dental health benefits, including:

• Prevention of teeth grinding, which can lead to jaw pain as well as dental problems
• Assistance in treating periodontal disease, a leading cause of tooth loss
• Reduction in the risk for abfraction lesions, which can lead to the erosion of tooth enamel

What Does Invisalign Treatment Entail?

Dr. Mike Lakota is a highly experienced Invisalign dentist at Lakota Dental. When you receive Invisalign treatment from us, you’ll be precisely fitted with a series of clear aligner trays to gradually correct any issues like improper tooth spacing or moderate bite problems. Dr. Lakota not only has 25 years’ experience in family and cosmetic dentistry, but he also understands the importance of using the latest technology to enhance Invisalign treatment. For example, Lakota Dental is equipped to provide digital 3-D scans that eliminate the need for traditional bite impressions made with putty. These high-tech scans are less messy and more precise than using traditional putty. /span>

Once fitted, you’ll need to wear your Invisalign trays at least 22 hours a day. But Invisalign trays can be removed while you’re eating or brushing your teeth. This means you won’t have to avoid certain foods or worry that your teeth aren’t getting clean—significant perks for Invisalign patients compared to those with braces.

If you’re in the Joliet area and you’d like to find out whether Invisalign treatment is right for you, contact Lakota Dental today to schedule an appointment.
