||One of Naperville’s favorite dentists, Dr. Chiann Gibson, is the founder and namesake of Smiles by Dr. Gibson. Utilizing high-tech dentistry and years of experience, Dr. Gibson has become known for crafting a smile fit for Hollywood royalty.
When most people think of braces, says Dr. Chiann Gibson, they imagine metal brackets overwhelming a person’s smile, making simple things like eating awkward until they are removed. But the Naperville dentists at Smiles by Dr. Gibson provide patients a great alternative to traditional braces: Invisalign® clear braces.
With Invisalign®, the Naperville dentists explain, a person can achieve a winning smile without the need to meticulously clean food from between brackets. Invisalign® also allows adults who might otherwise be self-conscious about wearing braces to receive the benefits of braces without anyone hardly knowing they’re wearing them, the Naperville dentists at Smiles by Dr. Gibson add.
Using clear, acrylic liners, Invisalign® can help shift teeth back into place in a matter of months, according to the Naperville dentists. The great thing about Invisalign®, say the Naperville dentists, is that they may be removed at any time. This allows wearers to fully clean their teeth during the time they’re wearing Invisalign®. According to the Naperville dentists at Smiles by Dr. Gibson, a patient need only remove the liners, brush, and put the liners back in place to resume straightening.
When a patient visits Smiles by Dr. Gibson, the Naperville dentists will take an impression of the patient’s teeth. That impression will be used to create a digital image that will then be used to make a custom set of braces to achieve the desired smile. The work doesn’t stop there, however. The Naperville dentists will continue to create customized liners until your desired smile is achieved.
Not every patient is a candidate for Invisalign®, caution the Naperville dentists. The ideal Invisalign® candidate only needs minor work to achieve straightening, Naperville dentists say. More extensive work will need to be accomplished with traditional metal braces, according to the Naperville dentists at Smiles by Dr. Gibson. However, problems like under bites, overbites, and tooth overcrowding are usually ideal for Invisalign®.
Smokers may be poor candidates for Invisalign®, according to the Naperville dentists, since smoke can easily stain the liners. Also, removing the liners many times can be counterproductive to the retainers’ purpose. Younger children are also not good candidates for Invisalign®, the Naperville dentists state, since their mouths are often still growing. Once the second set of molars has completely come in, your Naperville dentists can set up a consultation to begin discussing your options.
