Get Great Results Without Braces Using the Invisalign System
Most people are happy with their straighter smiles after traditional orthodontic treatments. They aren’t crazy about wearing uncomfortable metal and wires for years. At our office, you could change your teeth faster with Invisalign clear aligners instead. Before you begin your treatment, you can even preview your future smile with the Invisalign Outcome Simulator.
Invisalign clear aligners offer some benefits over traditional braces, such as:
- Convenience – Invisalign aligners are easy to change as needed. They are removed during meals, so you won’t have to give up your favorite foods during your treatment.
- Comfort – The aligners are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic and gently move your teeth a little at a time.
- Clarity – Wearing transparent aligners gives you a discreet way to improve your smile.
- Speed – Invisalign takes about 12 months on average to straighten teeth, but many of our patients have seen their straighter smiles in as few as nine months!
If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, we will take detailed measurements and impressions of your teeth. This data is used to design aligners specifically for you. You’ll wear a custom aligner for about a week, then switch to the next one in the series. This keeps your teeth moving in the right direction. You’ll need fewer checkups with Invisalign than you would with traditional braces; every six weeks or so, you will come to our office so we can monitor your progress.

At Highlands Ranch Smiles, we offer Invisalign treatments. And so Invisalign is a series of clear plastic trays. Each one is custom-fit to you and moves your teeth just little, little by little, in order to get your optimal results. The technology on Invisalign has just really improved. Year after year, they they come out with new things, and we are seeing treatment times half of what they used to be. Our average patient typically gets their results with Invisalign within 12 months, which is much faster than it used to be, and they are very difficult to notice since they are the clear plastic, and as compared to traditional braces, they're much more comfortable.
They are still moving your teeth, so yes, there is still some pressure, but you don't have the brackets, the wires to kind of catch around the tissue. And it is a more controlled movement since you basically get a mini adjustment every week with a new updated tray instead of just going in once a month for an orthodontic tightening. We just tend to see in general that it's a lot more comfortable to go through your Invisalign treatment and that it has been much, much quicker in recent years.
If you're looking for a way to straighten your teeth that is discreet and quick and much more comfortable than traditional braces, we'd love to chat with you here at our office and see if Invisalign is the right fit for you.
Orthodontic care can be combined with other cosmetic services to give you a complete smile makeover. Our own Dr. Michelle Haynes has focused her postgraduate training on cosmetic and orthodontic dentistry, including Invisalign.
