Colorado Springs Invisalign®

Colorado Springs Invisalign®

Invisalign® technology is a fantastic alternative to braces for those seeking to hide their braces while still achieving a beautiful smile. It begins with a series of clear, plastic aligners that are custom made for your teeth. These aligners look much like a mouth guard or night guard, although not as bulky. You will need to wear the aligners for a minimum of 20-22 hours a day, but they may be removed in order to eat or clean your teeth.

Unfortunately, Invisalign® cannot treat all orthodontic cases. If bite or jaw correction is needed, traditional braces may be the recommend treatment option. Invisalign® is known as a cosmetic corrective procedure, which means that it is limited to correcting and aligning your visible teeth. Sometimes it is necessary to correct the alignment of a tooth's root structure or overall bite structure, which will require traditional braces. To find out which orthodontic treatment is right choice for you, Dr. Rhoda Lockett will meet with you and discuss the pros and cons of each procedure, and what you can expect with each outcome.

Advantages Of Using Invisalign®:

  • The number of appointments required is significantly less with Invisalign® than with traditional braces.
  • The length of an appointment is much shorter.
  • Your oral hygiene routine will not be affected by the brackets and wires, which can reduce the ability to reach the nooks and crannies of your mouth.
  • Invisalign® aligners may be removed so brushing and flossing will remain normal. With traditional braces, you'll need to spend extra time after each meal picking foods out of your brackets.
  • Invisalign® is a fast, comfortable, and invisible alternative to traditional metal braces. In fact, it’s so well hidden that you might have to mention to your friends that you're wearing braces for them to even notice!
  • For active teens and young adults, Invisalign® is smooth and comfortable, enabling you to continue to play football, soccer, basketball, lacrosse, or whatever sport you’re into, without having to worry about getting your lips or cheeks cut on the wires of traditional braces.
  • Traditional braces have restrictions on dietary consumption, since some foods will break or destroy traditional braces. Since Invisalign® trays may be removed, you can eat foods without restrictions. After eating, your trays and teeth can then be easily cleaned.
