What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners are an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Unlike traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires, Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth, transparent plastic material that fits snugly over your teeth. Each aligner is made from SmartTrack® material, which is flexible, durable, and BPA-free.

What Do Invisalign Clear Aligners Treat?

Invisalign clear aligners are a versatile orthodontic treatment option that can address a wide range of mild to moderate dental misalignments and bite issues. Our office is ready to provide quality care to straighten your smile. We offer treatment for:

  • Crowded Teeth: When there isn't enough space in the jaw for all your teeth to fit properly, they may become crowded or overlapped, causing a crooked appearance. Invisalign clear aligners gradually shift your teeth into alignment, creating space and improving their position.
  • Gapped Teeth: Gaps or spaces between teeth can be closed using Invisalign aligners by gently moving the teeth closer together.
  • Underbite: An underbite is where the lower teeth protrude past the upper teeth when your mouth is closed. Our dentist uses Invisalign treatment to shift your lower teeth backward or upper teeth forward to correct an underbite.
  • Overbite: An overbite occurs when the upper front teeth overlap the lower front teeth. We correct an overbite by moving the upper teeth backward or the lower teeth forward.

Benefits of Invisalign Clear Aligners

Besides straightening your teeth and giving your smile a more aesthetic appeal, our Invisalign clear aligners offer many benefits to enhance your orthodontic treatment. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible during treatment, providing a more discreet approach to your care. During your alignment treatment, you can remove your aligners to comfortably drink or eat and properly brush your teeth without worrying about cleaning around metal or brackets. Our Kirtland invisible braces also allow fewer visits with our dentist than traditional orthodontic treatments.

Our Treatment Process

Our team begins by scheduling a consultation for you with our dentist, where we will assess your oral health and determine if Invisalign aligners are right for your situation. If you're deemed a good candidate for invisible braces, we'll take detailed impressions of your teeth and then send them to a lab where they will create your new aligners.

Once we receive your aligners from the lab, you will return to our office to pick up the first few aligner sets, along with instructions on how to wear and care for them. You'll wear each set of aligners for two weeks, and each set is designed to apply pressure on your teeth to move them into their new position.

You will stop by our office every few weeks to pick up your new sets of aligners and have our dentist assess your progress. Once you have completed treatment, our dentist will provide you with your Vivera™ retainer, made of materials similar to your Invisalign aligners. We will finish your care with a free whitening treatment to brighten your smile.

Invisalign Clear Aligners FAQ

Our team understands you may have questions before receiving Invisalign treatment. We aim to make the process as easy and convenient as possible, answering any questions you may have. Common Invisalign clear aligner questions we receive include:

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

The duration of Invisalign treatment can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the case and your specific orthodontic needs. However, on average, Invisalign treatment typically takes 9 to 18 months to complete.

We recommend cleaning your aligners with a soft toothbrush and clear, non-abrasive antibacterial soap. Also, you can always use Invisalign's official cleaning solutions. It's important to never use hot water to clean your aligners, as the hot water could damage them.

Proper use of your Vivera retainer will prevent your teeth from shifting back out of alignment. You should always follow the aftercare instructions provided by our dentist on proper retainer wear to maintain your results.
