Lovda Family Dental is proud to be a Premier Preferred Provider of Invisalign clear aligners in Hoffman Estates, which give you a clear, convenient, and comfortable option to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign works by molding clear plastic trays to your teeth and creating several sets of trays that change incrementally until they have shifted your teeth into the new, desired positions. Our Hoffman Estates Invisalign patients range from early teens to adults and they all love the almost invisible look of their Invisalign aligners.
The custom Invisalign aligners are made of Invisalign’s proprietary SmartTrack® material, which makes them comfortable, fit well, and easy to put on and take off. They fit snugly over your teeth and must be worn 22 hours each day for maximum tooth movement. The aligners are changed to a new set every two weeks.
Invisalign has many advantages over traditional braces, including fewer visits to our dental office (every six to eight weeks vs. every month) when compared to braces. You are able to take out your aligners when you eat, allowing for easier flossing, brushing, and oral hygiene. And most importantly, clear plastic aligners are much more comfortable when compared to traditional metal brackets and wires!
Invisalign is best for more mild orthodontic problems, such as moderate crowding or relapsed tooth movement. At Lovda Family Dental, all candidates for Invisalign complete a comprehensive oral examination to determine the best course of treatment. These include X-rays, photos, and a consultation. Some patients may require a dental cleaning before starting Invisalign treatment.
Ensuring Invisalign Success
At Lovda Family Dental, we understand that you are excited to show off your new smile as quickly as possible.

We’ll give you instruction on how to maintain excellent oral hygiene during Invisalign, including brushing and flossing, how often to chance your aligners, and a list of foods and drinks that can cause cavities.
