Discreetly Straighten Crooked Teeth with Invisalign 

If you have crooked teeth or gaps in your smile, you may be considering orthodontia. However many patients hesitate when it comes to traditional metal braces and would prefer a more discreet alternative. Fortunately, Invisalign® offers an excellent solution. These smooth, clear aligner trays are virtually invisible, and they can address a variety of cases. As a Premier Provider of Invisalign® in Aurora, CO, since 2009, Dr. Jim Craig and the team at Summerbrook Dental Group can design a treatment plan that is entirely tailored to your needs. 

What Is Invisalign? 

Invisalign is an orthodontic system designed to address crooked teeth, overlapping teeth, gapped teeth, and several forms of misalignment. Whereas braces exert pressure on teeth using metal brackets and wires, Invisalign features a series of clear, plastic aligner trays. Each set of removable retainers shifts your teeth into their proper position, and you can graduate from one to the next about every two weeks. Retainers should be worn for 20 to 22 hours each day and should only be removed when you eat or brush your teeth. 

Explore Your Candidacy

You may qualify for Invisalign if you are struggling with:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Gaps in your smile
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite

Keep in mind that Invisalign is not right for everyone. More severe bite-related issues may be better suited for traditional braces. Your dentist can perform a thorough examination of your smile to determine whether treatment is right for you.

The Benefits of Treatment

Invisalign is becoming increasingly popular among teens and adults. It offers several noteworthy advantages, including:

Comfort
Metal wires and brackets can irritate your cheeks, gums, and lips. The smooth Invisalign retainers are much more comfortable. 
Shorter Timeline
Although the exact length of treatment will vary from patient to patient, Invisalign can often realign your bite in about 12 months. Braces can take anywhere from 18 to 24 months. 
Aesthetics
Aligners are made of advanced SmartTrack® material, which is virtually invisible. As such, you will never have to feel self-conscious during treatment.
Predictability
Treatment is mapped out digitally in the planning stage. Patients can preview the results of their treatment and feel confident in their decision to pursue Invisalign.
Better Health
Straight teeth are easier to clean than teeth that are crooked or misaligned. As a result, you can maintain a good oral hygiene routine and enjoy better health after treatment.
No Dietary Restrictions
Braces limit your ability to eat certain food, as sticky foods and crunchy snacks can break wires and brackets. As Invisalign aligners are removable, you can eat all of your favorite food during treatment.

For an even more dramatic transformation, you may also combine Invisalign with other cosmetic dental procedures, such as teeth whitening

What to Expect

The first step of treatment involves an initial consultation, during which Dr. Craig can assess the position of your teeth and the relationship between your jaws. Using an iTero® digital scanner, we can take 3-D images of your smile, which will be used to plan your treatment. Dr. Craig can map out the movement of your teeth to ensure predictable results. The scans of your smile will then be sent to the Invisalign lab where they will be used to fabricate your customized aligners. 

In most cases, patients can graduate from one set of aligners to the next every few weeks. You will need to schedule follow-up visits to our office throughout treatment so we can monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed.
