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.
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.

Summerbrook Dental goes above and beyond. A friendly and talented staff, paired with a comfortable setting combine for an excellent experience.
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.
Invisalign is a fantastic orthodontic solution for many patients. If you are ready to transform the appearance of your smile, find out how you can benefit from Invisalign. Please contact us online or at (303) 693-1215 to schedule a consultation at Summerbrook Dental Group.
