Invisalign® by North Valley Orthodontics
Invisalign® clear aligners are a great option for people seeking a straighter smile. These clear aligners are more discreet than traditional braces and are capable of straightening teeth quickly and effectively. Dr. Alyssa Levin offers Invisalign at her Phoenix, Arizona orthodontic practice.
What is Invisalign?
The Invisalign system is a series of clear aligners that straighten teeth over time. At first, the aligners are a tight fit. This is normal. The pressure will gently push the teeth into place. You will periodically receive new aligners until your teeth are straight. It’s important to hold on to your retainers even after you’ve received a new pair, in case you lose the new aligners. That way you can wear the old ones and not lose too much progress.
At North Valley Orthodontics, we offer all kinds of Invisalign. With an increase in popularity in recent years, the Invisalign system has begun offering comprehensive treatment packages and varying models. Invisalign Express® and Invisalign Lite® are intended to fix minor alignment issues quickly. We even provide Invisalign to children, if the child can commit to wearing the aligners for 22 hours each day.
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
Metal braces are better suited for patients with complex malocclusion. Dr. Levin will thoroughly examine your teeth to assess your needs. Invisalign can treat a variety of alignment issues, including:
- Crooked or rotated teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Overcrowding (teeth that overlap)
- Mild overbite or underbite
The Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is quicker and less noticeable than traditional braces. It’s important to note that Invisalign is notably faster because most patients who qualify for this service have less complicated alignment issues.
