Invisalign

Nashville Invisalign

Instead of metal braces, many patients prefer Invisalign® – a cosmetic dental procedure that straightens and aligns your teeth using clear and removable trays. These trays are comfortable and changed approximately every other week to gradually shift the position of your teeth over time. Through Invisalign®, you can perfect your smile without ruining your existing one, and in the process, avoid the discomfort that sometimes comes with tightening braces and metal brackets.

During your initial consultation, your orthodontist will address your concerns, discuss the financial and medical implications of your treatment, and tell you if and how Invisalign® can help you get the beautiful smile you deserve. The orthodontist will also conduct a series of exams, take some X-rays and make a tooth impression to get a 3-D image of the inside of your mouth.

These steps combined will allow your doctor to make a personalized treatment plan and as a result, design your clear customized Invisalign® trays. As a rule, these aligner trays are to be worn at all times and only removed when you are eating or need to clean them. Approximately, every two weeks you will replace these trays and every six weeks you will come back to our office for a checkup. This process will continue until your teeth have fully shifted into their proper place.

While traditional braces and Invisalign® both produce similar results, Invisalign® does provide the following benefits:

  • You can straighten your teeth without the appearance of unsightly metal braces and brackets
  • Your usual oral health regimen can go on uninterrupted
  • You have no eating restrictions
  • You can visit the orthodontics office less than if you had metal braces
  • You can rest assured that your treatment will be comfortable, and you won’t have irritations to your gums or cheeks
