Clear Aligners

Bloom Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics is Your Premier Clear Aligner Provider in Lombard

At Bloom Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, in line with recommendations from the American Academy of Orthodontics, we advise that children should undergo their initial orthodontic assessment by the age of seven. Dr. Blair can evaluate your child’s dental development and assess if there are potential future concerns related to their bite or tooth positioning. Addressing these early, while your child’s teeth are still developing, might prevent intricate treatments after their permanent teeth have fully grown in. This can also be a means of conserving both your time and money. Proudly serving families in all the western suburbs of Chicago including Lombard, Glen Ellyn, Elmhurst, Wheaton, Villa Park, Downer’s Grove, Oak Brook, and Hinsdale.

Benefits of Using Clear Aligners

Effortless Dental Hygiene — Given that clear aligners can be easily removed, maintaining oral hygiene becomes straightforward. You can clean your teeth without any hindrance, as opposed to having fixed braces.

Subtle Appearance — The transparent nature of clear aligners boosts your confidence during the treatment, as these aligners are virtually undetectable once placed over your teeth.

No Dietary Limitations — Those with traditional braces often need to be cautious about consuming certain foods to safeguard their apparatus. However, with clear aligners, there’s no need to limit your diet – just ensure they are removed during meals!

Comfort Factor — Clear aligners are crafted from a gentle, pliable material ensuring they don’t cause discomfort, making your orthodontic journey a pleasant one.

Understanding How Clear Aligners Function

Clear aligners use a blend of state-of-the-art 3-D computer imaging and the time-tested principles of orthodontics. The aligners are tailored to shift your teeth incrementally towards the final position as outlined by our orthodontist. Every aligner is meticulously designed to accommodate your mouth throughout each phase of the procedure.

To get started, visit our clinic to ascertain if clear aligners are the ideal choice for you. After our expert team outlines the detailed treatment guidelines, sophisticated computer technology crafts a series of precise aligners – ranging from as few as 12 to potentially 48. You wear each set for roughly two weeks, removing them only for meals and oral care. With the progression from one aligner to the next, you’ll witness your teeth slowly aligning until the final desired position is reached. Get ready for a radiant smile like never before!
