Discover the Beauty of Straighter Smile With Invisalign

If you are looking for Invisalign in Tucson, AZ, you may have some questions about the treatment. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Manuel Rodriguez, specializes in providing personalized, discreet, and effective orthodontic solutions to patients of all ages. If you’ve been searching for an alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign may be the perfect solution for you. 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic system that uses a series of clear, removable, and custom-made aligners to straighten your teeth gradually.

Developed by Align Technology, Invisalign has transformed how we approach orthodontic treatment by offering a virtually invisible solution for correcting a wide range of dental issues, such as crowding, spacing, overbites, and under and crossbites.

Benefits of Invisalign

Choosing Invisalign comes with numerous benefits, including:

  • Discreet Treatment: The clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to undergo orthodontic treatment without traditional braces’ noticeable brackets and wires.

  • Comfortable and Convenient: Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, BPA-free plastic, reducing the risk of irritation to your cheeks and gums. The removable design makes it easy to maintain your oral hygiene and enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions.

  • Customized and Precise: Each aligner is custom-made for your teeth using advanced 3D digital technology, ensuring a precise fit and effective tooth movement.

  • Faster Treatment Time: Depending on your specific needs, Invisalign treatment typically takes 12-18 months, which is often shorter than the time required for traditional braces.

  • Fewer Dental Appointments: With Invisalign, you’ll require fewer visits to our Tucson, AZ office, as adjustments can be made by simply switching to the next set of aligners.

Invisalign Treatment Process

Here’s a step-by-step guide to the Invisalign process at Dental Wise:

  • Initial Consultation: Schedule a consultation with Dr. Rodriguez to determine if Invisalign is right for you. He will perform a thorough examination, discuss your treatment goals, and develop a customized treatment plan.

  • Digital Impressions: We will take digital impressions of your teeth using state-of-the-art 3D technology. This allows Dr. Rodriguez to create a precise treatment plan and visually represent your anticipated results.

  • Custom Aligners: Your Invisalign aligners will be custom-made using advanced digital technology, ensuring a comfortable and effective fit.

  • Wearing Aligners: You will wear each set of aligners for 20-22 hours per day, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. You will typically switch to a new set of aligners every 1-2 weeks, as instructed by Dr. Rodriguez.

  • Progress Checks: Periodic appointments at our Tucson, AZ office will be scheduled to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments.

  • Completion and Retention: Once your treatment is complete, you will transition to wearing a retainer to maintain your new smile. Dr. Rodriguez will provide you with guidance on how often and for how long you should wear your retainer.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

As you consider Invisalign in it’s essential to understand the differences between Invisalign and traditional braces:

  • Aesthetics: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, while traditional braces are more noticeable due to the use of metal brackets and wires.

  • Comfort: Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic, reducing irritation to the soft tissues in your mouth. Traditional braces can cause discomfort due to the metal components.

  • Removability: Invisalign aligners can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Traditional braces are fixed in place, making oral hygiene and dietary restrictions more challenging.

  • Treatment Time: In many cases, Invisalign treatment can be completed in a shorter time frame than traditional braces.

  • Dental Visits: With Invisalign, you will typically require fewer visits to our office, as no wire adjustments or bracket repairs are needed.
