Many patients are hesitant to begin orthodontic treatment because they don’t want to commit to having metal brackets and wires in their mouths for a year or more. If this is what has been holding you back from straightening your smile, you’ll be happy to know that we offer a discreet and more comfortable alternative made just for you. Invisalign® in Aurora is popular among teens and adults because they’re able to preserve the appearance of their smile while undergoing treatment.
Invisalign clear aligners are created from a digital scan of the patient’s teeth. Approximately every one to two weeks you will change out the aligners allowing for your teeth to subtly shift into place without the need for braces. Invisalign custom trays can easily be removed, allowing you to eat and drink whatever you please; along with being able to brush and floss without working around brackets.
Your custom trays will be created using a BPA-free plastic. Each set of trays will gently shift your teeth a little bit at a time. For the best results, we encourage our patients to wear their aligner trays for a minimum of 22 hours each day.
During your first appointment, our highly trained staffed will take photos, x-rays, and conduct a thorough dental exam. We will use this information to create a 3D model of your teeth and create your custom treatment plan. This treatment plan will show how your teeth will adjust over time, allowing you to see the projected result before beginning treatment. This plan will determine the frequency of visits, how often you need to switch aligner trays, and how long your treatment will last. At your next appointment, we will give you the custom-made aligner trays and review the proper way to care for them. Most patients only need to see us every other month to monitor tooth movement to ensure they are on track. Most treatments last nine to twenty-four months.
Both adults and teens are candidates for Invisalign treatment, and our teen aligners have a blue compliance indicator, so parents are assured they are being worn for the recommended hours. You will never feel self-conscious about your smile again while straightening your teeth. Even the most complicated cases can now be done with Invisalign clear aligners. Our Doctors have undergone additional training to be able to handle difficult cases. We are committed to achieving the results you are seeking while matching your lifestyle.
Invisalign Teen is a clear aligner system providing a nearly invisible way of straightening teeth using clear, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teen’s teeth. These aligners replace the wires, brackets, and bands that traditional braces use.
Invisalign Teen is every bit as effective as traditional braces for most common teeth-straightening cases, but only when worn the recommended 22 hours a day, every day. Many parents worry that compliance will be an issue, but a clinical study showed that teens wear their aligners more responsibly than most adults! If you’re still not convinced, we’ve got you covered: each Invisalign Teen aligner has a blue indicator that will fade over time when used as directed. This allows both doctors and parents to track the patient’s progress and compliance.
Invisalign Teen can successfully treat most mild to moderate cases of underbite, overbite, overcrowding, and gaps between the teeth. Our teen aligners have a blue compliance indicator, so parents are assured they are being worn for the recommended hours. Even the most complicated cases can now be done with Invisalign Teen. Our Doctors have undergone additional training to be able to handle difficult cases with Invisalign to provide you options that were not possible before. We are committed to achieving the results you are seeking that fits your lifestyle!
