Many patients wish they could straighten their teeth without sacrificing their appearance; they worry that metal braces could negatively impact their professional and social lives. At Southwest Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics with Adult Dentistry, our dentists and staff want you to feel confident with your smile. We believe you should feel good about your smile during and after the treatment process. That’s why we offer an effective solution to helping you straighten your teeth: Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a clear braces system that uses BPA-free aligners to gently shift your teeth into alignment. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without compromising your aesthetic. Most of your peers won’t even recognize that you’re wearing braces!
Invisalign is Easy to Use
With Invisalign aligners, you can maintain your daily diet and normal oral hygiene routines. Simply take out the aligners when you’re ready to eat or clean your teeth. It’s that easy!
Your Invisalign Consultation
At Southwest Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics with Adult Dentistry, during your consultation, our in-house orthodontist, Dr. James Urbaniak, will examine your teeth to see if you’re a candidate for Invisalign. If you qualify for Invisalign, our staff will begin the process of fitting you for your aligners.
The Invisalign Process
We use special computer technology to map out the specifications of your mouth, so that we can give you a secure and snug fit for your aligners. Then, we’ll send off the 3D images to a lab. Once your BPA-free trays are ready, we’ll have you come back to the office to make sure they fit comfortably. You’ll wear this first tray for 1-2 weeks, then rotate to the next tray in the sequence. After 6-8 weeks, you’ll come back to our office for your next set of aligners. This process will continue until your teeth are set in their ideal positions!
