Why choose Invisalign?
Many patients desire a straighter, healthier smile, but don’t want their braces to be noticeable. Village Orthodontics offers Invisalign and Invisalign Teen to children, teens, and adults. Instead of traditional metal brackets and wires, Invisalign is a set of clear aligners that patients wear for about 2 weeks at a time before moving on to the next set of clear aligners in the series. Invisalign is nearly invisible and completely removable for enhanced aesthetics and convenience.
As a top Invisalign provider, Dr. Jeff offers Invisalign and Invisalign teen to his patients at all three of his practice locations: Arvada, Centennial, and Greenwood Village. If you are interested in improving your smile, we encourage you to contact Village Orthodontics to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Jeff.
How does Invisalign work?
No matter which type of orthodontic treatment you have in mind, every patient begins their smile journey with a consultation appointment with Dr. Jeff. When you meet with Dr. Jeff, he will take the time to get to know you, understand your oral health goals, and answer your questions. Keeping your preferences in mind, he will formulate a treatment plan that is right for you.
Village Orthodontics utilizes the latest 3D imaging technology to create digital impressions of your teeth and jaws. This helps Dr. Jeff to design a comprehensive treatment plan and allows you to see what your treatment will look like. A virtual treatment plan even provides you with a sneak peek of your new smile from day one!
The Invisalign system works by wearing a series of custom-made aligners in a specific sequence. The force and timing of each tooth movement is carefully mapped out: not all teeth move at once, but instead certain teeth move with each tray. Each aligner is worn for about 2 weeks before moving on to the next aligner. Since Invisalign is completely removable, you will be given specific instructions regarding when you will wear each aligner.
How long you will be wearing Invisalign will be determined by your specific treatment plan, which will be discussed with you during your consultation appointment. In general, the treatment time for most Invisalign patients is nine to fifteen months. You can expect to go through a total of 18 to 30 aligners during treatment.
Many patients prefer Invisalign because the aligners are clear and easily removable. This means minimal impact on patients’ daily routines and appearance, and it allows patients to eat and drink the foods they like and brush and floss with ease. Also, because there aren’t any brackets or wires, many patients find Invisalign to be a more comfortable experience.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is a popular choice for children, teens, and adults. There are many reasons to choose Invisalign:
- Aligners are virtually invisible
- Invisalign is removable. This means that you can continue to eat the foods you enjoy without worrying about damaging appliances.
- Invisalign successfully treats several orthodontic conditions including dental crowding, overbite, underbite, open bite, cross bite, and gapped teeth.
- No metal brackets or wires means that there is no risk of loose or poking wires, which can be irritating to the mouth.
- You can view your virtual treatment plan—including what you smile will look like after treatment—from the very first day.
- Many patients are candidates
