What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign is a clear aligner treatment that is an alternative method for transforming a smile. Like traditional braces and brackets, these aligners help guide teeth into the proper positions through gradual force. Our aligners use a durable plastic material, and we mold them to fit the patient’s mouth perfectly.
At Oro Valley Dental Group, we use Invisalign because this product has several advantages over other clear aligners. For one, these aligners extend over the gum line to help apply additional force with more leverage. This design makes for a more comfortable and less intrusive straightening process.
The Benefits of Using Invisalign®
Invisalign is an excellent choice for anyone who doesn’t care for metal braces or who has had past treatment and wants to make minor corrections. Many clients also prefer using clear aligners over traditional wires and brackets for other reasons.
- Removable: Removing the aligners is easy, so the patient won’t have to change eating habits. The patient also won’t have to deal with wires that trap bits of food and get in the way of proper flossing.
- Discreet: Even with clear braces, the metal wires can still be visible. With clear aligners, the patient can speak and smile naturally without anyone noticing the aligners.
- Comfortable: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners feel more comfortable because their material prevents crevices from catching the patient’s soft mouth tissue.

Like every teeth straightening implement, clear aligners are unique to every patient. We start the process by taking an impression of the patient’s teeth, and we send the impressions to the lab that will produce individualized aligners.
The patient wears these aligners for only a couple of weeks before they are replaced with a new pair after every appointment. Every pair of aligners acts as a different phase of alignment, and each one is designed a bit differently, so the teeth slowly move into the correct position.
The treatment can take from a few months to a year, depending on the original position of the teeth as well as on the patient’s smile goals. Throughout this process, we conduct regular checkups to ensure the aligners’ effectiveness and address any issues the patient might be experiencing. Learn more about our ClearCorrect clear aligners.
