INVISALIGN CLEAR ALIGNERS
Would you like a straight smile fast without putting your life on hold? Us too! That’s why we offer Invisalign for our patients in the Phoenix, AZ area.
Invisalign works just like traditional orthodontics without the setbacks associated with metal braces. Using clear, comfortable aligners, Invisalign gradually moves your teeth to their appropriate position. The aligners are customized to your smile and are removable, which means you can brush, floss, and eat your favorite foods normally. The best part? The aligners are virtually invisible! Hardly anyone will know you’re receiving orthodontic treatment?
We offer Invisalign for both teens and adults. Schedule a consultation with us to see if you’re a candidate!
Here are some FAQs about Invisalign:
As with traditional metal braces, you may experience some temporary discomfort each time you place a new set of aligners in your mouth. This discomfort is usually pressure and a sign that your aligners are doing their job and moving your teeth.
How often should I visit the office for an Invisalign checkup?
We know you lead a busy life and are pleased to inform you that Invisalign checkups are every 4 to 6 weeks. They are important as they give us a chance to make sure your treatment is progressing as it should.
Will I need to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment?
If you’d like your new and improved smile to last for years to come, wearing a trainer once you complete Invisalign treatment is essential. It can help reduce your risk of relapse and ensure your teeth remain straight.
What is the ideal way to clean Invisalign aligners?
We recommend brushing them with toothpaste and water. It’s a good idea to get into the habit of doing this each time you brush and floss your teeth.
How will Invisalign affect my speech?
Invisalign is like other orthodontic appliances in that it may temporarily affect the way you speak. The good news is that once your tongue and lips get used to the aligners, you’ll be able to speak normally.
What is the typical length of an Invisalign treatment plan?
Your age and the severity of your case will determine the typical length of your treatment plan. However, most patients complete their Invisalign treatment in about 10 to 12 months.
