Did you know that Drs of Smiles Gentle Family Dentistry offers our Mesa, AZ patients a solution for enhancing their smile and improving the alignment of their teeth? With Invisalign clear aligner tray therapy, our dentists can help patients enjoy straighter smiles without having to undergo traditional orthodontic solutions. Many patients ask our dental team, including Drs. Scott LeSueur, Charles Dodaro, and Glenn LeSueur, about the benefits of Invisalign and to learn how they work in addressing misalignment.
How the clear braces are designed
First of all, patients often want to find out how these trays are made and how they progress through their treatment. The dentists complete a series of digital images of the patient’s smile. These images are completed using specialized intraoral camera that obtain detailed computerized results in minutes. The dentist then electronically sends these camera images to the Invisalign laboratory for the fabrication of a series of trays that take your smile from misaligned to beautifully straight! Each tray in a patient’s treatment is worn for two weeks day and night until the entire process has been completed.
What are the benefits of clear braces with Invisalign?
There are several advantages to completing clear braces with the team at Drs of Smiles Gentle Family Dentistry.
- Invisalign trays are created from clear plastic materials that are barely visible when worn. This allows patients to complete treatment without others knowing that treatment is being performed! The clear aligner trays make patients feel less embarrassed about treatment.
- Invisalign trays are smooth which enhances comfort. Traditional metal bracket and wire braces can scrape and irritate the gums and cheeks, but Invisalign trays fit precisely over the natural smile and are smooth to the touch.
- Invisalign trays are removable. The trays are removed when patients eat and drink. This also allows for patients to brush and floss easier as they are not having to work around metal appliances to keep their teeth and gums clean. Most patients with Invisalign have a lowered risk of developing periodontal disease or cavities when compared to their counterparts using conventional metal braces.
