Many of our patients never wore traditional braces when they were young, however, today they seek to have straighter teeth. Another pool of individuals may actually have worn braces at one time but still hope for straighter teeth. Through advanced technology at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop at Chicago, IL, custom straightening trays, such as Invisalign, can correct the teeth. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made aligner trays to gently and slowly move the teeth straight. These almost invisible fit snugly on the teeth and are worn for at least 22 hours a day. They are typically only taken off for teeth brushing, eating, and drinking certain liquids. Invisalign from our dentists at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop can effectively enhance the teeth for a dazzling smile.

"Dr. Iqbal and the team literally saved my smile a few years ago, at a time when the dentist was the last place I wanted to be going. The whole staff was incredibly patient with me in explaining every little detailand worked with me on a plan to have all of the necessary work done. I no longer dread going to the dentist and the staff continues to be helpful and kind every time I visit. I have recommended dental works to many friends and family members and will continue to do so for anyone looking to have as pleasant a dental experience as one can hope for!"- K.K. / Google / Sep 11, 2017
"I struggled to find the right dentist for a year before I found DentalWorks in the loop. I was hesitant to trust just any office to handle my root canal and tooth extraction. Dr. Shah is amazing. She's kind and patient when explaining treatment options. The staff is lovely too. I was terrified of dentists. Terrified. Now, I feel I have an office that encourages me to take care of my dental hygiene - something I had neglected for years because I couldn't find someone I trusted. Great job guys!"- S.B. / Yelp / Sep 10, 2017

What to Expect
If it is decided that Invisalign is the recommended option for teeth straightening needs, treatment begins with specialized X-rays of the mouth so that the trays can be made. Our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop show each patient how to wear and care for their aligners, and explain to the patient about the importance of making sure keep in the aligners in for 20-22 hours a day. Straightening aligners are to be worn for approximately 10-14 days before the next set of aligners are then provided. This is based on the progression of the teeth movement. At each check-up at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop, our dentists will provide the patient an accurate measure of how many more weeks they will need to wear Invisalign.
After the teeth are straightened with Invisalign, it is necessary that the patient wear an Invisalign Vivera retainer device to maintain the results. Most patients need to wear their retainer in place at night. To ensure the teeth remain straight, patients should continue to visit our dentists at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop twice a year and proactively incorporate a diligent home oral regime.
The fee to cover Invisalign will be determined based on the complexity pertaining to the orthodontic case, and the amount of sets of aligners that will be recommended. Insurance may cover some of the expense. This varies depending on the patient's coverage. The staff at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop will confirm what the patient's benefits are so that an accurate fee can be detailed by our dentists during the patient's initial appointment.
