How Does Invisalign Treatment Work?

Invisalign aligners are clear plastic trays that use carefully targeted pressure to shift your teeth into an ideal alignment over time. Your Invisalign treatment starts with a visit to our comfortable dental office. Dr. Rutledge analyzes your bite to check whether you're an ideal candidate for this particular teeth straightening treatment. Clear aligners are most effective at treating mild to moderate bite and alignment issues, such as crowding, gaps, and crooked teeth.

After confirming that aligner treatment would benefit you, our Oro Valley Invisalign dentist uses digital imaging and x-rays to thoroughly map the inside of your mouth. Using our iTero scanner, we can show you a preview of your expected results during this initial appointment. After your visit, we send the set of digital images to the lab so they can begin crafting your custom-fitted plastic trays.

On average, you wear each aligner for two weeks before moving to the next set of trays. We’ll schedule regular checkup appointments to make sure your treatment is moving along as planned. As the treatment progresses, you'll be amazed at how your smile changes!

5 Reasons to Choose Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign is an incredibly popular orthodontic treatment, and you may be considering undergoing this teeth straightening process for several reasons.

  1. A subtle treatment method: Clear aligners are relatively unobtrusive and may not even be noticeable to the people around you. Many patients elect this treatment over traditional metal braces because the aligners are significantly less visible.
  2. No lifestyle sacrifices necessary: When you choose Invisalign treatment, it's easy to continue enjoying your favorite snacks, meals, and drinks. Simply remove your aligners during meals and you can continue your day-to-day life with few changes!
  3. An enhanced smile: Aligning your teeth amplifies the natural beauty of your smile. At the end of your treatment, you have an aesthetically pleasing smile that you can take pride in.
  4. Improved oral hygiene: It's easier to brush and floss straightened teeth. By improving your ability to practice good oral hygiene, you reduce your chances of developing gum disease in the future.
  5. An effective retreatment process: Your teeth can shift out of alignment over time despite previous treatment, particularly for patients who do not regularly wear their post-treatment retainers. Invisalign is an efficient retreatment option that can bring your teeth back into position and restore your smile.

Invisalign as Part of a Full Smile Makeover

A full smile makeover combines multiple dental treatments to sculpt your concept of a perfect smile. Invisalign is a critical component of many multi-treatment processes. We may use dental crowns to restore damaged teeth and clear aligners to straighten your smile. Our team can also correct the alignment of your teeth with Invisalign before using a dental bridge to replace multiple missing teeth.

Getting the Most Out of Your Teeth Straightening Treatment

Invisalign works best when your aligners exert constant pressure on your teeth. When you fully invest in the process, you'll be satisfied with the final results.

Should you misplace a set of aligners, please continue wearing your most recent set of trays until we can fabricate a new pair for you. Doing so prevents your teeth from shifting back and protects the progress you've already made. Please contact us with any questions regarding your treatment at any time!
