If You Are Seeking a Solution for Misaligned Teeth, We Offer Invisalign Clear Aligners!

Are you looking for an answer to your misaligned teeth but wish to avoid traditional braces? If you have not heard, there is a solution made available by Dr. Nima Afzalian and the team at My Dental & Implants in Glendale, Arizona, which can correct misaligned teeth without the need for unsightly metal braces. The Invisalign clear aligner treatment system is one of the best teeth straightening aligners on the market and is great for adults looking to correct their teeth alignment. If you have not heard of Invisalign, this may be a revelation to you. 

Why Choose Invisalign

Over the past 20 years, Invisalign has provided results to those looking to align their teeth without the discomfort and inconvenience of traditional metal braces. Patients who visit our Glendale, Arizona office love Invisalign and the many benefits it brings to the table. When you choose Invisalign, we will digitally map your current smile to develop a plan and a new map that outlines how you want your smile to develop.

How Invisalign Works

Once digital images of your mouth have been taken, they will be sent off to an Invisalign lab, where a personalized set of clear aligner trays will be crafted. These aligner trays are made of dental plastic that is comfortable and, best of all, nearly invisible! You will start with the first tray and wear it for a set time before moving on to the second tray. You will gradually move through the set of aligner trays until your treatment is complete. No wires, brackets, or rubber bands are required!

You will need to wear your aligner tray for 20 to 22 hours a day for best results, taking them off when you eat or drink and cleaning them. Nobody will know when you wear your aligners unless you make them aware that you are undergoing treatment. In many cases, patients can see results in about six months. Your teeth will be transformed, and your smile will be as attractive and straight as you’ve always dreamed it would be without the inconvenience of traditional orthodontics.

Why Choose Invisalign

Benefits of Invisalign

Patients love Invisalign not only because they are discreet but also because Invisalign offers other benefits. Some of these include:

  1. Eat What You Want: There are no food restrictions with Invisalign. Simply remove your aligners when you eat and put them back on when you are finished.
  2. Invisible: The aligner trays you will wear are virtually invisible. This is a huge benefit and, for many, the number one reason they choose Invisalign. The thought of unattractive braces is something you will not have to consider with Invisalign.
  3. Length of Treatment: Traditional braces can take years to transform your smile. The Invisalign treatment system can correct mild to moderate alignment issues in as little as six months.
  4. Convenience: Those who have worn braces will talk about the frequent visits to the orthodontist so that wires can be tightened and teeth can be examined. With Invisalign, you will spend much less time with your dentist or orthodontist. Few appointments mean more free time for you!

Benefits of Invisalign

Q: What is Invisalign, and how does it work?

 A: Invisalign is a near-invisible way to straighten misaligned teeth and is a welcome alternative to traditional braces. No metal wires or brackets are required. Instead, Invisalign utilizes a series of clear aligners designed specifically for your teeth. Once you receive your aligners from your Glendale, Arizona, dentist, you will wear each set for a prescribed period, usually around two weeks, before moving to the next set in the series. Each set of aligners will gently push against your teeth to gently, yet consistently, shift them into their proper position and alignment. Once you complete the series, your treatment is complete.

Q: What are the key benefits of choosing Invisalign over traditional braces?

 A: You can expect many benefits when choosing Invisalign, but let’s stick with three:
Discreet. Because this treatment uses clear aligners, your teeth will be straightened without your friends, family, or acquaintances ever realizing it.
Invisalign is also removable, allowing you to eat and drink what you want and when you want. This benefit also makes oral hygiene easier.
Comfortable. No metal wires or brackets are required, and the plastic used to craft your aligners is designed for a comfortable fit.

Q: What are Invisalign aligners made from?

A: Your Invisalign clear aligners will be crafted from a clear, strong, and comfortable medical-grade plastic that is nearly invisible when worn. Invisalign has patented the SmartTrack plastic specifically for their aligners. This is something that no competitor can offer.

Q: Is Invisalign treatment painful?

A: When compared to traditional braces, Invisalign is quite comfortable. As with any orthodontic treatment, there will be some discomfort because your aligners are shifting your teeth into their correct position. However, this feeling of pressure is what lets you know that Invisalign is actually working!

Q: Will my speech be affected by Invisalign?

A: As with any orthodontic treatment, your speech may be temporarily impacted as your tongue adjusts to the aligners. The primary issue many Invisalign patients face is a temporary lisp. This lisp should go away as you adjust to wearing your aligners.

Q: Are there dietary restrictions with Invisalign?

A: There are no dietary restrictions. You can remove your aligners when you want to eat or drink so you can enjoy whatever you are craving. It is crucial that you brush after eating and remember to reinsert your aligners.

Q: How do I clean my Invisalign aligners?

A: The best way to keep your Invisalign aligners clean is to brush and rinse them using lukewarm water. Invisalign also offers special cleaning solutions you can ask about from your Glendale, Arizona, dentist.

Q: How often do I need to wear my aligners?

A: It is recommended that you wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day. You risk prolonging your treatment if you do not wear them for this recommended time. In some more extreme cases, your teeth could even begin to revert to their previous positioning.
