Straighten Your Teeth Discreetly and Restore Your Smile
Crooked teeth and bite problems can do more than interrupt your smile. They can cause gum disease, create tooth wear, increase risk for tooth injury, trigger chewing difficulties and jaw pain, cause bad breath and impair cardiovascular health. More immediately, crooked teeth can damage your day-to-day confidence.
According to the American Dental Association, straightening your teeth can significantly benefit your overall dental health. When teeth are properly aligned, gums fit more securely around teeth, protecting against plaque buildup and gum disease. Furthermore, your smile is one of the first things people see. Invisalign® can make that smile an attribute.
If you want straighter teeth, a better bite and a healthier mouth without metal wires and brackets, Invisalign® may be the right option for you. Invisalign® is made of smooth, comfortable and nearly invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. It efficiently corrects dental problems from crooked and protruding teeth to malocclusions, bite problems and tooth gaps without interfering with your life or your self-esteem.
With Invisalign®, straightening your teeth isn’t a chore.
The aligners’ removable design allows you to:
- Eat what you want. With other teeth-straightening methods, eating can be annoying and painful. With Invisalign®, you remove the aligners each time you eat. This means you can continue to eat all the foods you love without any restrictions or food getting stuck in your braces.
- Engage in your regular sports and activities. Invisalign® allows you to continue your favorite activities without worrying about damaging your orthodontics or your mouth. Simply remove the aligners as needed and resume your active life.
- Clean your teeth without hassle. Because the aligners are easily removable, you can continue to brush and floss your teeth without obstruction or inconvenience. Since there’s no metal to work around, Invisalign® lessens the chance of plaque retention, gum disease, tooth decay and stains. Invisalign® treatment also comes with a cleaning kit, allowing you to easily and quickly clean your aligners.
Invisalign® is discrete, comfortable, convenient and affordable.
What to Expect From Invisalign® Treatment
Invisalign’s® clear, durable plastic gently and gradually shifts your teeth into place—often with less pain than regular braces.
Invisalign® requires a new set of pre-molded, ready-to-wear aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. Treatment time is comparable to, and in many cases less than, that of traditional braces. An average course takes between 5 months and a year. We recommend wearing your Invisalign retainers between 20 and 22 hours per day, removing them when necessary for cleaning, eating, sports and other activities.
Treatment with Invisalign® also requires fewer office visits than braces. While some braces patients have to schedule monthly or even bi-monthly checkups, with Invisalign® you can plan on seeing Family & Cosmetic Dentistry of the Rockies only every 6-8 weeks for an evaluation and to pick up your next set of aligners.
