Las Cruces Invisalign® Clear Braces
If the word braces calls to mind a mouth full of metallic brackets and wires, you’re not alone. Most patients who visit us think that these traditional braces are their only treatment option if they want to have a straighter smile. At Painted Skies Dental Center, we’re happy to offer a comfortable, cosmetic alternative to traditional orthodontics – Invisalign clear braces. Drs. Ramon and Natalie Ortiz both have extensive experience and training straightening patients’ smiles using the Invisalign system, and we’re happy to help adults and teens alike determine whether Invisalign is the right solution for their smiles. We’ll start by scheduling an Invisalign consultation to determine whether Invisalign is the right option for your smile alignment. If we determine Invisalign is an option, we begin planning treatment right away, and typically, we complete alignment using the Invisalign system in ten to eighteen months. Contact our team to schedule your consultation or keep reading to find out more about the Invisalign treatment process.
Straighten Your Smile with Invisalign
The Invisalign process is fairly straightforward. Our dentists start by capturing images of patients’ current bite and determining what the ideal alignment will be for their smile. Then, a series of alignment trays are designed. Each set of trays represents one stage closer to the patient’s final goal. Patients wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. At the end of this time, they simply exchange their current aligners for the next in the series. Every four to six weeks, patients check in with our team to ensure their smile is progressing according to plan. We are able to intervene and make adjustments throughout the course of treatment to ensure patients achieve their desired end result. Best of all, there’s no need to make drastic changes to your diet or oral hygiene routines. Simply remove the comfortable alignment trays while eating or cleaning teeth.
