Advantages of Invisalign®
Invisalign® has revolutionized orthodontics by providing you with a way to improve teeth malalignment without letting others know you are undergoing treatment. Advantages of Invisalign® include:
- Clear, virtually invisible teeth aligners
- Aligners are removable for eating, drinking, and daily dental hygiene routines
- Less maintenance required during treatment
- No brackets or wires
- Reduced need for office visits
- Greater comfort
- When compared with traditional orthodontic techniques, less time is often necessary to achieve optimal results
What to Expect from the Invisalign® Procedure
After you have been evaluated by one of our dentists and it has been determined that Invisalign® is a good option for your needs, the procedure will begin by creating a dental impression of your teeth. Dr. Mabry performs iTero digital impressions at the practice here in Scottsdale – a more rapid, more accurate, and more comfortable method of creating a precise model of your teeth to ensure the correct fit for the aligners.
Once the digital impression is made, a system of Invisalign® clear teeth aligners will be custom-designed for your treatment process. These aligners will be given to you to take home, and once you have worn the first set of aligners for about two weeks, you will replace them with the next set in the series. Each set of aligners is slightly modified from the one before, making it possible for Invisalign® to gradually move your teeth into a straighter position.
The aligners are virtually invisible, and can be removed while eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. The entire Invisalign® process typically takes about 7 to 15 months to achieve optimal results.
