Invisalign® – Chicago, IL and Suburbs

Invisalign Badge - 1st Family Dental Invisalign® is one method of orthodontic treatment that can straighten your smile through a series of invisible, removable and comfortable aligners that virtually no one can tell you are wearing. Invisalign trays are removable for cleaning and changing to a new set as your teeth move and straighten over time. As an added bonus, Invisalign trays can also be used with at-home and overnight teeth-whitening systems.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign Chicago icon - Midwest Orthodontics Center Invisalign® is an alternative treatment method to straighten teeth using a custom-made series of aligners that are created and fitted specifically for you.  These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and nearly invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you.  There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. A new set of aligners is made every two weeks or so, and you’ll pick them up and have a regular visit with your orthodontist.

What is Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen® works like standard Invisalign treatment using a series of custom-made aligners, with the understanding that as teenagers our teeth may respond differently and in some cases more quickly to treatment.  Invisalign Teen can be a welcome alternative to traditional braces treatment.  Some teens prefer Invisalign Teen® treatment because it can be removed as needed for eating, athletics and other events, and because it is virtually invisible to others.

This has been my go to dentist location since I can remember. I recently took my mom again after her crown fell off and I just can’t rave enough about this location and the dentist that helped us out! If you want the old school family vibe-this is the place to go to. No rip offs if anything they work with you and make you feel comfortable.

Emma M.

My appointment today was outstanding, from being greeted by name by the receptionist upon my arrival, through the cleaning process by Debbie and the dental exam. The equipment is all top shelf and the treatment rooms are very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend 1st Family Dental in the Burr Ridge Village Center to anyone looking for an exceptional dental experience.

I prepared myself for a life without teeth, and did not think there was anything that could be done to help me. I expected to learn to live out the rest of my years hiding my smile, and living with my digestive problems – until I found 1st Family Dental.

Before I knew it, the assistant came out to tell me they were done and she did well. I was so relieved and happy. My daughter was happy and calm. I asked her about her visit. She now has no fears, and can’t wait for her next cleaning in 6 months.

When I got home and looked at my teeth in the mirror, I was astounded with the job that Dr. Akhikar had done. The new filings were much less noticeable than my previous one. I couldn’t have been more satisfied.

The staff was friendly and one of the assistants even let me hold her hand while the extractions were taking place! The dentist who treated me was very professional and made me feel very comfortable.
