Any life-altering decision comes with a certain amount of apprehension, even when you are changing your life for the better. If your dream home, job, or wedding were suddenly within your reach, you would be excited – and probably nervous as a cat on a hot tin roof. That is exactly how many people feel when they realize that the smile of their dreams is within reach.

Thanks to Invisalign, those crooked that you've hated your entire life can be straightened without the embarrassment and inconvenience of metal braces – possibly as soon as a few months. So, what is stopping you from calling today? The answer is probably uncertainty, nerves, and unanswered questions. What is treatment like? What is involved? Will you love your new smile? Let us answer some of those questions, and put your mind at ease.

Before: How do you prepare for Invisalign? That's easy – just make an appointment at Big Smile Dental, and your dentist will do the rest! With exclusive ClinCheck software, we can “preview” the outcome before recommending treatment, so there are no unpleasant surprises.

During: You can remove your aligners for eating, oral hygiene, and even occasional special events. However, they should be worn a minimum of 22-23 hours every day. The less you wear them, the longer treatment will take, so don't cheat!

After: Oral hygiene is, of course, vital but you will find it is easier and more efficient when you don't have nooks and crannies hiding plaque. You will need to wear retainers. It doesn't matter what kind of orthodontic system you choose, your teeth can gradually return to their crooked state if you don't wear your retainer. This is a small sacrifice for a beautiful smile.

Sounds pretty simple and predictable, doesn't it? That's because it is! Unlike a “dream” home, job, or marriage – a stunning smile won't turn into a nightmare. It won't flood, fire you, or cheat on you. It won't ask too much of you, and it won't disappear from your life (unless you quit brushing and let it rot away). It's time to make a life-altering decision that you won't regret! Call Big Smile Dental at 773-772-8400 and schedule an Invisalign consultation today.
