in North Scottsdale, AZ
Do you want to straighten your teeth but have no desire to wear traditional metal braces? With Invisalign in North Scottsdale, AZ, you don’t have to. Invisalign are invisible braces that put continuous pressure on your teeth until they move into place. After a consultation and oral exam at Dr. Rick Dentistry, our laboratory technicians create a set of custom aligners that you change approximately every two weeks. The best part is that no one has to know you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment unless you choose to tell them.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign offers several benefits in addition to the ability to wear a clear aligner. These include:
- The time required to wear Invisalign retainers is just 9 to 15 months. With traditional braces, treatment lasts up to two years.
- No discomfort of having metal wires and brackets tightened.
- You can remove your aligners for eating, cleaning, and special occasions.
- Follow-up appointments every six weeks compared to every four weeks with typical metal braces.
With Invisalign, you don’t have to look like a teenager to get your teeth straightened. The clear aligners do the job just fine.
How Invisalign works
If you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, Dr. Rick takes an impression and X-rays of your teeth to aid in planning. A member of our staff calls you in for a follow-up appointment once our laboratory returns your set of custom aligners. He makes sure that your first aligner fits well and discusses how to wear and clean your aligners going forward. We provide you with a case to store your other aligners until it is time to discard and replace the current one.
Invisalign treatment is easy, fast, and pain-free. Your beautiful new smile awaits.
