Invisalign® Clear Aligners

A uniform smile not only improves a person’s confidence, but it also supports good oral and overall health. And with advancements in technology making orthodontic treatment more discreet and efficient, it’s never been so easy to find an option that works best for you.

Dr. Richard Maguire and our friendly staff at Image Dental understand how an aligned smile can transform our patients’ lives. It’s because of this we offer Invisalign® clear aligners for a minimally invasive way to straighten your teeth. Our Edwards office is accepting new patients interested in Invisalign clear braces, so call to set up an appointment today!

The Benefits of Clear Aligners

The custom design of the Invisalign system conveniently reshapes your smile with more discretion than traditional braces. These invisible trays are barely noticeable and can be removed to allow an easier time eating, brushing, and flossing. Every two weeks, we provide a new set of trays that continue to advance your teeth into the proper position. For treatment to work effectively, it is vital to wear the aligner trays for at least 22 hours a day.

For those experiencing orthodontic relapse or not wanting to wear braces, Invisalign is a great option to straighten mildly misaligned teeth. In addition to the straightening effects, Invisalign trays can be used to apply teeth whitening gel, making it convenient for providing multiple treatments at once.

Comparing Traditional Braces to Clear Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible where traditional braces consist of metal brackets, wires, and rubber bands, which stand out in the smile. Treatment with metal braces generally takes longer than Invisalign but in complex cases, may be necessary. 

In addition to the fast and discreet way Invisalign straightens teeth, the clear and smooth design of the trays provides a comfortable fit. Many patients find this a major improvement over bulky, often uncomfortable metal braces.  

Are You a Candidate for Invisalign?

Dr. Maguire conducts a comprehensive evaluation during your first visit, clearly explaining his recommended course of treatment. Aligning your teeth with Invisalign requires you to be consistent and compliant for optimal results. Additionally, wearing aligner trays require ideal oral hygiene habits to avoid prolonged exposure to oral bacteria. Commitment to the process ensures you will experience the best benefits. 

While Invisalign is cosmetically a better choice, this treatment isn’t the perfect option for everyone. Those with more complicated misalignment, particularly around the molars, will achieve better results with traditional braces.
