Invisalign Clear Braces in Denver, CO
At Pearl Dentistry, our team understands how difficult the journey towards achieving a straight smile can be. After all, while a mouthful of metal braces may be fine for middle school students, they can be an embarrassing burden on adults in the professional world. Thankfully, Invisalign is available as an alternative here at our Lower Highlands neighborhood practice. This revolutionary orthodontic solution can help patients achieve the same beautiful results they’ve been dreaming of in a much more seamless fashion.
How does Invisalign work?
After taking impressions of your smile and sending them to the Invisalign lab, our team will receive a set of personalized aligners made from clear, comfortable plastic. Each one is designed to represent the arrangement of your teeth as they slowly move towards their ideal alignment. Patients just need to wear each aligner for at least 20-22 hours a day and then remember to switch to the next one after a couple of weeks of use. Additionally, brief check-ups with Dr. Jayme Glamm or Dr. Stefanie Walker every four to six weeks will allow to us to check your progress and confirm that the treatment is going along smoothly.
Invisalign offers patients several benefits when compared with traditional metal braces, which include:
- Like the name suggests, the aligners are virtually unnoticeable when worn, allowing patients to remain confident and enthusiastic when it comes to showing off their smile.
- There are no uncomfortable wires or brackets to worry about – the tough plastic of the aligners is customized to fit comfortably in your mouth.
- Their removable nature means that you can still enjoy all your favorite foods and practice oral hygiene at home like normal. Just make sure to put the aligner back in your mouth when you’re finished!
- Invisalign treatment usually requires around 8-18 months, which is a big improvement over the two or more years traditional braces can often require.
