InvisaligN® Clear Aligners in Glendale, AZ
If you have been thinking about straightening your teeth, then consider Invisalign! For older teens and adults, Invisalign is a fantastic way to quickly and simply correct mild to severe misalignment issues. The result is a beautiful smile in as little as 9 months!
The Invisalign Process
This clear aligner system is unique in that it is a custom orthodontic treatment that is made just for your smile goals!
Step one – After your initial consultation with our Paseo Ranch orthodontist, our professional and caring team will take 3D digital images of your mouth. Using our latest orthodontic technology, we can actually show you with our software exactly how your teeth will move over time with Invisalign.
Gone are the days of uncomfortable molds and gel forms! These 3D images are then sent to the independent Invisalign lab where your custom aligners are made.
Step two – Once you receive your aligners, our orthodontist will explain the process. You will wear your first set of aligners for 2-3 weeks before replacing them with the next aligner in the series. Every 4-6 weeks, you will come back to our office so we can make sure your teeth are progressing and moving into correct alignment. The exciting part is that most patients can begin seeing results in just a few weeks!
Step three – Wear the aligners. It is very important to wear these aligners for at lease 22 hours every day. Invisalign is very flexible, as you can remove the aligners while eating or during certain activities, just make sure to replace them as soon as you are finished so your progress is not interrupted.
That’s it! The process is simple and the results are incredible.
Who Should Wear Invisalign?
Patients younger than 16 should not wear Invisalign. Because they are removable, the treatment requires a high level of discipline and maturity to ensure they are worn correctly and for the right length of time every day. Most young teens and children should consider traditional metal braces instead. Otherwise, Invisalign is an excellent choice for anyone!
