For years, people have been weighing their desire for a straighter smile and a healthier mouth against the restrictions and aesthetics of braces. While the modern version of traditional metal braces has come along way, we know some people are looking for a more discreet option. Invisalign is the perfect choice for those who want to achieve the smile of their dreams with a nearly invisible corrective treatment. No matter what life stage you’re in, Invisalign may be the perfect option for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that are created to fit the shape of the wearer’s teeth and adjusted until the perfect smile is achieved. The beauty of this treatment is that the clear aligners are nearly undetectable to those who don’t know you’re wearing them. This no-metal option is appealing to many who want the result of braces without the look of them.
Invisalign is a removable option that gives patients more freedom and discretion than previously available. They can eat what they like and remove their aligners whenever the occasion arises. Due to the detailed process of printing and cutting, many patients say that these aligners are so comfortable they forget they are wearing them. Around every two weeks, patients will receive a new set of aligners that will further them along the process to achieving their dream smile.
To create a set of aligners that perfectly fit your mouth, we use something called an iTero® scanner. The iTero takes a 3D image of your teeth, and we then use that image to have the aligners printed. Dr. Brent also digitally determines each tooth’s movement that Invisalign then uses to create your custom aligners. It is a very detailed process, but the scanner can capture every groove and curve to ensure the results are not a one-size-fits-all aligner. The aligners are then printed using SmartTrack® thermoplastic, a revolutionary material created specifically for Invisalign with a focus on comfort and efficiency. These are no ordinary clear aligners; they are just the right size to deliver a beautiful smile that is uniquely yours.
Every aspect down to the material and cut of Invisalign is considered to create ultimate comfort for patients. The desired smile is projected using state-of-the-art technology and a series of aligners are created to achieve that smile. Invisalign is among the best that modern-day orthodontics has to offer, and we pride ourselves on being an authority in the matter. Our Peach Orthodontics teams stay up-to-date on all of the latest processes and improvements so that we can guarantee that you are getting the best of the best, from appliances to in-office care.
Benefits of Invisalign
The biggest draw for Invisalign is the flexibility it gives patients. If you want to take a picture without them or take them out to enjoy a treat, then you can do so. They are easily removable so you don’t have to make any changes to your diet or worry about any injuries while playing your favorite sports. Along with taking them out for leisurely activities, you also can remove Invisalign when it comes to your oral care routine. With braces, it takes more effort to floss around brackets and wires, but with Invisalign you can easily remove your aligners to maintain your current routine.
Another benefit of this treatment is less time spent in the orthodontist’s chair. While we love seeing your smiling face, we know you have a busy schedule that could benefit from one less appointment. With a new set of aligners given to you every two weeks, there is no need for appointments to tighten wires or fix brackets. The appointments that you do have will be much more brief than if you were wearing braces.

Invisalign is a popular option among patients of all ages for the flexibility and freedom it gives while delivering stellar results.
