Invisalign®

Welcome, all from Centennial, CO. When it comes to delivering high-quality service, innovative solutions, and efficient orthodontic treatment, you can’t go wrong with Sloss & Carpenter Orthodontics. Truly, you’ve come to the right place to find the ideal solution for your orthodontic treatment without the usual worries that come from traditional metal braces.

 

What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Well, unlike the conventional bracket and wires used for stainless steel braces, or even clear ceramic braces, Invisalign® straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you; these smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible non-BPA plastic trays gradually and safely move your teeth.

A big difference with braces, from a specialist’s point of view, is that these aligners will only push your teeth in one direction at a time with the pre-programmed biomechanics for each tray you use throughout the entire treatment time.

We create a full model of your mouth to know where all your orofacial structures are, send the information to the lab, and we give you your tray sets to start the treatment. Get in touch with our team to learn more about everything you can do with Invisalign.

There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life.

Why Would You Choose Invisalign?

We know you want to know why Invisalign is such a great choice. You may have already heard great things about these clear aligners, thanks to some friends and family. So let’s recap why Invisalign is so good.

Better Oral Hygiene

Because the trays are removable, you can take them off when it’s time to brush or floss your teeth. Furthermore, you won’t have to deal with maneuvering around wires and brackets to keep your teeth clean. Cleaning your aligners is just as easy with the Invisalign cleaning kit. Or you can simply brush and rinse them in lukewarm water. That’s it! Achieving that great smile couldn’t be easier!

Removable

That’s right! You can remove your clear aligners whenever you need to. This is perfect for adults and teenagers alike, as the patient can simply pop off their trays during mealtimes, a quick selfie, or their regular oral hygiene routine.

Clear

One of the biggest boons is that the materials used to manufacture the trays are translucent and won’t attract any unwanted attention when you smile. Most people won’t even notice you’re wearing clear aligners.

Playing Sports

For those who are active in contact sports, Invisalign allows you to continue wearing your aligners without having to worry about any sharp brackets cutting your mouth. If your sport requires wearing a protective mouthguard, simply remove your aligners, and you’re good to go!

Faster Treatment

Many patients report noticeable results in a couple of months instead of having to wait several years for their treatment to end.

Is Invisalign Right for You?

You should get in touch with your orthodontist. We are available to answer any of your questions because each treatment poses unique considerations. Invisalign may not solve all the cases of severe orthodontic problems, but it really does help solve most problems we come across.

When you consider that the price difference is not too great, the choice becomes simple for many patients. So, who is Invisalign good for?

Invisalign for Teenagers

Teens have a unique advantage. Their bones and teeth are still growing. Your orthodontist can leverage this natural process and make treatment as efficient and comfortable as possible. Teenagers won’t have to undergo lengthy treatments when they start early enough.

Invisalign for Adults

Adults don’t have to worry about age limitations when it comes to orthodontics. Invisalign is also an ideal solution for adults who have busy schedules; after all, you won’t spend too long with adjustments as you only need to replace the trays, and you can wear your aligners without people noticing you have them on.
