Invisalign

If you have ever looked in the mirror and wished your smile was straighter but shuddered at the thought of braces, you might want to consider treatment with Invisalign or Spark. We will conduct an initial examination free of charge; this visit will be used to determine if you are a candidate for clear aligner treatment.

Invisalign®: Highly Effective and Virtually Undetectable

Perhaps you have postponed orthodontic treatment because you are worried about the look of braces. The Invisalign® system offered at our Montgomery, AL, practice is a discreet, comfortable way to achieve a straighter smile. If you undergo Invisalign® treatment, Dr. Trulove will design a set of aligner trays made from clear, durable plastic. The trays will gently reshape your dental arches, correcting both cosmetic and functional issues. In most cases, Invisalign® can be just as effective as traditional braces. Contact our office to find out if you are an Invisalign® candidate.

Personalized Treatment to Straighten Your Smile

Invisalign® involves a detailed planning process. The first step will involve Dr. Trulove taking digital impressions of your teeth. Using advanced computer simulation techniques, he will use these impressions to design a series of aligner trays. The software will forecast the gradual movement of your teeth, and our treatment team can even show you what your teeth could look like after treatment!

Our laboratory will fabricate your aligners according to these designs. The trays will gently align your teeth and reposition your dental arches as needed. Each aligner will have a slightly different shape, and you should begin a new aligner approximately every two weeks. You should only remove your aligners to eat and brush your teeth. You should also clean the trays as instructed, especially after meals. Treatment time can vary, although it will typically take 18 to 24 months. Just as with other forms of orthodontia, you will need to wear a retainer after your treatment is complete.

The Benefits of Invisalign®

There are a number of reasons to consider Invisalign®. It's a discreet option for patients looking to improve their smile without putting their life on hold while in braces. The aligners have a smooth surface and each tray provides a gentle movement, which makes for a very comfortable treatment experience throughout. Since they are removable, Invisalign® treatment doesn't require any dietary restrictions and makes for very easy brushing and flossing.
