Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Grimley at our Naperville dental office can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

Dr. Grimley is a Preferred Provider of Invisalign, which means he has many years of experience and has completed numerous cases with spectacular results. It also reflects his dedication to continuing his education in the field. In addition to Dr. Grimley's expertise, we have a wonderful relationship with our Invisalign lab expert, with whom we work closely to ensure that each patient receives the best treatment plan possible.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after.

Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective to treat crowded teeth, underbites, overbites, jaw problems, and tooth misalignment. More than 70% of dentists and orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign, including Dr. Grimley.

Why would I want Invisalign?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. The aligners are also comfortable with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.

No metal and wires usually means you spend less time in Dr. Grimley’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How does Invisailgn work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks and remove them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Grimley has prescribed.

You’ll visit our Naperville, IL dental practice about once every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts nine to 15 months, and the number of aligners is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case.
