Invisalign in Colorado Springs
Having a confident smile can change everything, and with Invisalign you can easily have the straight smile you’ve always wanted.
Invisalign straightens your teeth without the need for braces in a much more patient friendly process. A series of clear plastic aligners are utilized to create tooth movement. Invisalign is best suited for those who have mild crowding or spacing and is a better alternative than braces for such cases. They are virtually undetectable, easy to use, and comfortable to wear.
What does Invisalign do different from braces?
Invisalign is very different from braces. Primarily, they are removable and invisible, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are business as usual. They are also formfitting and very comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions or damage to your inner mouth. The lack of wires also means less time in the office for adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan on our computers so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Your teeth then start to shift — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Guerra has prescribed. You’ll visit Dr. Guerra about once every 6-8 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Looking for More Information on the Invisalign system?
The Invisalign system is a modern, high-tech approach to orthodontics by using a series of clear, comfortable and removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth without metal braces. Invisalign is a patented system that uses 3D modeling software and cutting-edge manufacturing technology to provide a removable and virtually invisible solution for straightening teeth.
Invisalign uses 3-D computer imaging technology to design the complete treatment plan, from the initial teeth positioning to the desired final positioning. This 3-D imaging allows you to preview the final positioning of your teeth before you start treatment. Custom-made aligners are created based on the imaging information. The Invisalign aligners are made of a strong, BPA-free medical-grade plastic that can correct spacing, crowding, and bite problems with great precision.
Invisalign straightens teeth, which leads to not only a more attractive smile, but a healthier one as well. Straight teeth mean healthier gums, easier cleanings, improved chewing and speech, and decreased risk of tooth trauma and wear.
