Invisalign Express in Queen Creek

What is Invisalign Express?

Invisalign Express is an innovative orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth using a series of clear, removable aligners. This treatment is specifically designed for individuals with minor spacing issues or slight crowding. Unlike traditional braces, there are no metal brackets or wires. Instead, patients wear a set of custom-made, transparent aligners that gradually shift their teeth into the desired position. The aligners are virtually invisible, providing a discreet solution for those seeking a confident smile. Invisalign Express is offered by Dr. Larrabee and Dr. Sharma at Advanced Orthodontics, catering to patients in and around Queen Creek.

The Invisalign Express Treatment Process

Initial Consultation

The first step to a perfect smile with Invisalign Express is an initial consultation with Dr. Larrabee or Dr. Sharma. During this visit, the orthodontist will examine your teeth and gums to determine if you're a suitable candidate for Invisalign Express. They will discuss your dental history, your orthodontic needs, and your expectations from the treatment. This is also your opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the process, costs, or results.

Custom Treatment Plan

Once you're deemed a good fit for Invisalign Express, the orthodontist will create a detailed treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. They will take digital scans of your teeth, which are used to create a 3D model. This model is used to map out the precise movements your teeth need to make to achieve the desired result. The aligners are then custom-made based on this plan, ensuring a comfortable fit and effective treatment.

Wearing the Aligners

After your custom aligners are ready, you'll start wearing them for 20-22 hours a day, removing them only for eating, brushing, and flossing. You'll switch to a new set of aligners every two weeks, each set slightly different from the last to gradually move your teeth. Regular check-ups will be scheduled every six weeks to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments.

The Benefits Of Invisalign Express

Discreet Treatment

One of the most significant benefits of Invisalign Express is its discreet nature. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth without anyone noticing. This feature is particularly appealing to adults and teens who may feel self-conscious about wearing traditional braces.

Comfort and Convenience

Invisalign Express aligners are made from smooth, comfortable plastic, which means there are no sharp metal components to irritate your mouth. The aligners are also removable, which makes eating, brushing, and flossing much easier than with traditional braces. You can continue enjoying your favorite foods without any restrictions and maintain your oral hygiene routine without any extra hassle.

Faster Treatment Time

Compared to traditional Invisalign, Invisalign Express offers a shorter treatment time. It is designed for minor dental issues and typically requires fewer aligners, meaning you can achieve your desired results in as little as six months. This makes it an excellent option for those seeking a quicker path to a straighter, more confident smile.
