Health Concerns and Crooked Teeth

Misaligned, crooked, or overcrowded teeth undoubtedly affect the aesthetics of a smile which can make us feel less confident in our smiles. But these conditions can also impact our oral health by increasing our risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

Straighter teeth not only provide a cosmetically pleasing smile but also allow for more thorough cleanings. This greatly contributes to maintaining proper oral hygiene, which in turn, lowers the risk of harmful bacteria leading to gum disease (i.e. gingivitis and periodontitis) or dental decay.

Thankfully, a straighter, healthier smile is easy to achieve with our Invisalign treatment plans.

Getting Your Ideal Smile Quickly and Discreetly

There seem to be countless stories of traditional, “metal mouth” braces being uncomfortable and embarrassing. It’s no wonder—as they need nearly two years of headgear and constant adjustments. Such issues are a thing of the past thanks to the streamlined Invisalign clear braces.

Sleek, comfortable, and nearly invisible, Invisalign clear braces can provide a straighter, healthier smile in as little as 90 days! Not only are they nearly undetectable, but they are also removable so they won’t be disruptive to any big events or day-to-day life. Simply take your aligners out when playing sports, swimming, or on a night out.

Invisalign: Changing Lives One Smile at a Time

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are a great alternative to traditional braces. Instead of using metal brackets fastened to your teeth, Invisalign uses clear mouthguard-like trays to provide the same straight teeth without detracting from your smile during the treatment process.

The clear, slim aligner trays draw less attention, can be easily removed for eating and cleaning your teeth, and are more comfortable than traditional orthodontics.

You can achieve the straight smile you’ve been wanting without anyone even knowing you’re wearing orthodontic gear!

How It Works

Invisalign clear aligners work similarly to traditional orthodontics without the need for brackets, wires, bands, or springs. Instead, the Invisalign system uses a series of discreet clear trays worn over your teeth to gently guide your teeth into their new straight positions.

Having a series means that each set of aligners only moves your teeth a little at a time; then you’ll move to a new set of aligners once your teeth fit the current aligners. This gradual pressure creates a straight smile faster and more comfortably.

Invisalign Can Help With These Problems

These subtle little trays can fix most minor orthodontic problems. Because the aligners use use constant pressure on the entire tooth, rather than only pulling from one spot like metal brackets, Invisalign aligners can:

  • Make extra room for crowded teeth.
  • Straighten teeth.
  • Realign smiles.
  • Correct bites.
  • Close gaps.

Invisalign can correct many minor-to-moderate bite problems including overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite. For those patients who need this treatment, their trays will have little wings on the sides to move their jaw into place.

Invisalign vs. Braces

  • Eat what you want. Invisalign trays are removable, so you won’t need to adjust your diet to remove foods that can damage or get stuck in metal braces!
  • Quicker than traditional orthodontics. Invisalign usually works in a fraction of the time of traditional braces. Instead of waiting two or more years for your dream smile, get it in just 6–18 months!
  • Fewer office visits. Without the need to remove bands and adjust wires manually, Invisalign treatments require fewer office visits, giving you more time to do the things you love.

Great for Teens and Adults

Invisalign orthodontics is ideal for teens and adults alike. The slim, discreet design makes it convenient and comfortable to straighten your teeth without the appearance of traditional braces.

Adults can enjoy Invisalign because they’ll be able to get their teeth straightened without interrupting their daily routine or looking adolescent at work with obvious metal wires in their mouths.

Teens will love Invisalign teeth straightening because they’re comfortable and their friends won’t even have to know they're getting their teeth straightened.

Smile in Confidence During and After Invisalign Treatment

If you’ve always wanted a straight smile, but don’t want to wear traditional braces for months or even years, Invisalign clear braces may be the right solution for you!

Our experienced dentists can create a treatment plan that is generally much shorter than traditional orthodontics. Not to mention, the clear aligner trays are so discreet people may not even notice you’re wearing them!

Whether you’re looking for a discreet or accelerated way to straighten your smile, Invisalign aligners may be just what you’re looking for!

Invisalign Best Practices

Following these guidelines will help your treatment go smoother and last longer after your aligner schedule is done:

  • Remove your aligners for food and drink.
  • Clean your aligners daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush to prevent any bacteria buildup.
  • Store your aligners properly in the provided case to prevent loss or damage.
  • Follow your prescribed treatment schedule—Don’t move on to the next set of aligners early.
  • Wear your retainer every night after your treatment finishes to keep your alignment.

Invisalign Treatment After Traditional Braces

With Invisalign clear braces becoming more popular, many patients who have already used traditional bracket braces wonder what could have been. Good news! You don’t have to keep wondering!

You can still benefit from Invisalign clear braces even if you have used traditional braces in the past. The innovative method Invisalign treatment uses lets patients get the straight smile they’ve always wanted, addressing issues traditional braces couldn’t.

Schedule an Invisalign consultation to discover the straighter, healthier smile you deserve.

Extra Benefits from Invisalign

  • Easy dental hygiene. Invisalign aligners are completely removable, making cleaning your teeth simpler.
  • Comfortable orthodontics. Gentle, corrective pressure moves your teeth without the discomfort that brackets and wires can cause as they rub against the inside of your mouth.
  • New confidence. With Invisalign, you can continue to smile confidently during your entire treatment without your teeth being overshadowed by brackets and wires.
  • Better bite. Correcting your crooked teeth can also lessen headaches or jaw tension caused by TMJ disorder (TMD).

Why Should I Choose an Experienced Dentist for Invisalign Treatment?

While there are many mail-order clear aligner brands available, none of them come with the assurance a professional dentist brings. When you see a dentist in person for your Invisalign treatment, you can be assured that your treatment is uniquely designed for your exact teeth. You can also get course corrections and talk to someone you trust if something doesn’t feel right.

Our Orange Door dentists have special training to be able to offer Invisalign clear braces. They can help you get your treatment successfully and safely.

What Is The Invisalign Treatment Process?

1
Primary Design Consultation

The first step to starting your Invisalign clear aligners treatment is seeing the dentist for your initial consultation. At this appointment you’ll discuss your smile goals, go over your oral health history, and get your x-rays and digital impressions to get a 3D rendition of your smile. This will help us design your aligners and put together your unique treatment plan.

2
Custom Aligner Fabrication

Invisalign trays use the latest in dental technology to help straighten your smile. The advanced dental technology at Orange Door Dental allows us to make a thorough 3D image of your teeth. This imaging will help to create a series of custom-made aligners. Each new aligner in the series will change size and shape to gently and comfortably straighten your teeth throughout the treatment.

3
Wear Your Aligners as Often as Possible

Your Invisalign clear aligners are so easily removed it may be tempting to take them out whenever it suits you. However, if you want your teeth straightened according to your original treatment plan, it is essential to wear your aligners at all times of the day other than eating and brushing. You should be wearing your aligners for a minimum of 22 hours per day.

4
Change to the Next Aligner

Our dentist will create a treatment plan specifically for you. You’ll switch to a new set of aligner trays about every 2–4 weeks—each aligner making small adjustments that bring you closer to your ideal smile. When your teeth feel like they fit the current aligners exactly, it’s time to switch to the next set. When wearing your aligners correctly (22 hours a day), many cases can be resolved in as little as 6 months.

5
Post-Treatment Maintenance

Once the series of clear aligner trays has been finished and your desired alignment has been achieved, a custom retainer will be fitted to your new smile. This retainer will only need to be worn at night to maintain your straightened smile. If you are looking for a discreet way to correct crooked or crowded teeth or bite issues, Invisalign orthodontics could be the answer you’ve been looking for.

Your New Smile’s Results Thanks To Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign treatment provides incredible results quickly and discreetly; it is the solution for many orthodontic issues and gives you straighter teeth and a healthier smile. With the advanced imaging technology this innovative treatment uses, you can even see these results digitally during consultation.

Amazing! See before and after images, as well as watch your treatment progress in real time before treatment begins!

Common Invisalign Questions

With Invisalign clear braces addressing so many orthodontic issues, most patients wanting a straighter smile are considered prime candidates. Consider scheduling a consultation if any of the following apply:

  • You have crooked or misaligned teeth.
  • You want a straighter smile.
  • You aren’t interested in traditional braces.
  • You want quick, discreet results.
  • You are over the age of 12.

As Invisalign clear braces use precision programs to create a personalized treatment plan for every patient, side effects are both rare and mild. There may be some discomfort when you start wearing your new aligners; your mouth just needs an adjustment period.

Perhaps the most common side effect is dry mouth, as Invisalign clear braces rest atop of your teeth which can alter how much saliva is produced.

Because Invisalign aligners put even pressure on the whole tooth at once, instead of just pulling from the middle like metal brackets, Invisalign treatment generally takes less time than traditional braces. Some cases can take as little as six months to 18 months to complete.

Treatment plans are customized for individual patients and timing will vary depending on the amount of adjustment needed.

After following your scheduled treatment plan, the results of your Invisalign treatment are designed to last a lifetime. Following your treatment plan, our dentist will give you a retainer to wear at night. Continuing to wear a retainer after your treatment is the best practice to ensure long-lasting, beautiful results. With proper care, your straight smile is yours to keep!

There are similarities between Invisalign clear braces and ClearCorrect aligners, but their differences have made the former so popular. ClearCorrect aligners are thinner and designed to cover the gums, which impact their result time and give a much more noticeable “feel” when wearing them.

Providing dependable results and a more comfortable experience, Invisalign clear braces are becoming the industry standard.

Mail-order aligners are a cheap alternative to Invisalign treatment by reducing the quality of their product. Unlike the thorough method Invisalign uses to create a unique plan, mail-order aligners are created from a single impression.

Without monitoring your progress, mail-order aligners put you at risk of getting unwanted results, but also damaging your teeth that would require additional orthodontic treatments.

In most cases, the cost of Invisalign orthodontics is similar to the cost of traditional braces. Your treatment plan and the number of aligners needed will determine the cost of your Invisalign treatment.
