A few months ago, you may have read our blog explaining how Invisalign® clear aligners work and how they improve your oral health. In the last year or so, Invisalign’s® popularity has skyrocketed because of several reasons:

  • They’re virtually invisible
  • They’re very comfortable
  • They require less time than traditional braces
  • Their maintenance is easy
  • The results are astonishing

One of the most attractive features of Invisalign® is that the amazing dental technology used during the process will actually show you how your teeth will shift over time. Everyone’s Invisalign® journey is different; some people have beautifully straight teeth in a few months, while others may require a slightly longer period of time for their teeth to reach their optimal position for the smile of their dreams.

Regardless of how long it takes for the Invisalign® transformation to happen, the results are life-changing and long-lasting. A Las Vegas, Nevada, Invisalign® dentist can provide you with the dazzling smile you’ve always wanted without surgery, without the challenges of metal braces, and without any special accommodations that will affect your day-to-day life. 

What Can Invisalign® Fix?

The first question most people ask their Invisalign® dentist in Las Vegas is “Am I a good candidate for clear braces?” The answer is almost always “Yes,” because Invisalign® is a wonderful solution to these very common dental issues:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites

People who already practice good oral hygiene are wonderful candidates for Invisalign® because the clear aligners must be kept clean and well-maintained for them to do their job of straightening your teeth. If you’re already a regular brusher, flosser, and get regular cleanings, the addition of Invisalign® to your life will be hardly noticeable. In fact, people won’t even know you’re wearing these clear aligners unless you tell them! That is certainly a welcomed change from traditional metal braces.

How Invisalign® Works

After a thorough evaluation that includes x-rays and digital impressions of your teeth, your Las Vegas Invisalign® dentist will review the teeth-shifting journey that will occur over time. Your clear aligners are manufactured, and you gradually progress to different sets of aligners as your teeth move into their proper position according to the progression mapped out for you. 

You will be able to see images of what your teeth will look like as they shift, and the end product will amaze you. The Invisalign® clear braces system is one of the few dental procedures that allows you to see the end result before the process even begins.

What to Expect With Invisalign® Clear Aligners

When your first set of aligners is ready, you will come in for a fitting, and your Las Vegas Invisalign® dentist will make any necessary adjustments. You will wear your aligners all day, every day, except when you eat, floss, and brush your teeth.  With removable Invisalign® braces, you will be able to remove them any time you need to throughout the day (maybe at work during a speaking engagement).

Your next set of aligners will be provided, and your teeth’s movement will be closely monitored. When the last set of aligners is placed and your teeth have shifted into the desired position, your Invisalign® dentist will ensure no further adjustments need to be made.
