Treatment That Fits Your Lifestyle
Consider Invisalign® to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. Schedule a free consultation with Dr. Brady so you can find out if Invisalign is right for you.
Invisalign are clear acrylic aligners that fit over your teeth and are designed to straighten your smile. They are removable, making it easier to eat, drink, brush and floss.
Invisalign is much more comfortable than traditional metal bracket braces and can give you stunning results.
We'll take photos and X-rays to create a 3D image of your mouth. We make your first set of custom-fitted aligners from these images, and then you begin the process of straightening your teeth.
You’ll probably wear Invisalign aligners for 9–15 months, and will typically use 18–30 sets during your treatment. Plus, you'll only need to see us in the office once every 12 weeks.
You wear the trays for about 22 hours a day but can remove them for brushing your teeth and eating. Based on your individual needs, you will wear several sets of trays throughout your orthodontic treatment and will start to notice a change in just a few months.
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth. It uses a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth.
Wearing the aligners will gently move your teeth into place little by little, based on the exact movements your orthodontist plans for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners about every two weeks, until your treatment is complete.
Dr. Brady and his team are top-notch. While I had braces as a teenager, we weren't told back then the importance of wearing retainers. Needless to say, my teeth shifted. After a consult with Dr. Brady for Invisalign, in which he took the time to explain how the process would work and showed me a 3D image of how my teeth could look after the process was done, I decided to move forward with the treatment. I am happy with the results and would highly recommend Dr. Brady and his team to anyone (children and adults)!-Brandy T.
The Clear Choice
You’ll get a great smile without a treatment that gets in the way of your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
This nearly-invisible option to straighten your teeth is truly changing the way people see orthodontic treatment.
We're excited to offer this technology to our Winnetka braces patients. Dr. Brady has a lot of experience treating patients with Invisalign, and we're happy to offer it to you.

Differences Between Invisalign & Braces
Unlike traditional braces, smooth plastic Invisalign aligners don't have metal components that can irritate your mouth. Because they’re removed when you eat, you won't have to watch what you eat like you would when wearing braces – bring on the popcorn and peanuts.
In fact, the aligners must be removed for eating and for drinking anything other than water. You need to make sure you’re willing to do that before you decide on Invisalign clear braces.
To prevent staining, you’ll need to clean your teeth before putting the aligners back on.
Of course, brushing and flossing are much easier than with traditional braces, since you don’t have to work around any brackets and wires.
While Invisalign costs a little more than braces, the price difference isn't that much.
It’s important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day for them to do their job and straighten your teeth. But, with Invisalign, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, you will generally need to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
Invisalign may not be recommended for some complex alignment or bite issues, or for those who have bridgework; Dr. Brady can advise you about what options are best for you.
