Looking to exchange overlapping, overcrowded, or crooked teeth for a straight, aligned smile? Invisalign treatment from your family dentists at Arizona Smile Designers may be just what you are looking for! No matter which common orthodontic problem you have, the friendly team at Arizona Smile Designers can likely provide a solution with the Invisalign clear aligners system. We’ve been providing Invisalign to our Sedona area patients for decades and they love the convenience and the invisible look of the clear aligners. We love watching their confidence grow when they show off their new, straightened smile. Learn more about how Invisalign can help your teeth gradually shift into an aligned position.
The Invisalign System works with no metal brackets or wires to worry about like traditional metal braces. Instead, your family dentists will utilize 3-D imaging technology to create a series of upper and lower clear, plastic trays that you will wear over your teeth. Every few weeks, you’ll begin wearing a new set of trays. Each new set of trays helps gently move your teeth into their corrected, straight position. The trays are removable so you can eat and maintain good oral hygiene by brushing as you normally would. Before you know it, you’ll have a newly created smile – and the process is so discreet that no one even notices it’s happening!
Your Arizona Smile family dentist will use Invisalign to straighten your teeth without brackets and wires. A patient will first visit our Cottonwood office so we can evaluate your teeth and make sure Invisalign is a good fit for you. If it is, we’ll take pictures, x-rays, and impressions of your teeth so that we can create 3-D images of them. Then, our Invisalign experts will use advanced computer technology to create a sequence of finely calibrated, customized aligners – as few as 12 or as many as 48. These clear plastic aligners are molded to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. For each stage, there will be an aligner for the upper set of teeth and one for the lower set. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and taken out only when you eat, brush, and floss. You’ll return to Arizona Smile Designers’ office every 8 – 10 weeks for treatment. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth gradually move until they’ve reached their ideal position – then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!
While there are many orthodontists out there who specialize in orthodontic treatments, we’d like to recommend considering us for your orthodontist during this procedure. As your Cottonwood and Sedona, AZ dentist, we’ll have a much better picture of your overall dental health, having treated you as our patient for a while. We’ll be able to combine our dental expertise and our orthodontics in order to give you a more efficient treatment.
Also, during your orthodontic treatment, you’ll need to visit the orthodontist multiple times to see how your treatment is progressing. In addition to that, you’ll still need to make your visits to the dentist twice a year. By coming to us for your orthodontics, you’ll be able to save time since you won’t need to make extra trips to both the dentist’s office and the orthodontist’s office.
