Invisalign Near Me – Adults in Tucson AZ

If you’ve been struggling with the embarrassment of having a smile with crooked teeth, perhaps because you don’t want to draw more attention to yourself with traditional metal braces, then you should know that there are some options in modern orthodontics that allow you correct such issues discreetly, like Invisalign. 

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that has increasingly grown in popularity across the globe due to its many benefits that include:

  • Nearly invisible aligners – Ability to straighten your teeth without other people noticing – 
  • Removable aligners – Ability to continue enjoying your favorite foods and drinks and maintain good oral hygiene normally  
  • Clear expectations – with 3D Invisalign treatment planning, you can view your own virtual treatment plan before it starts. You know what to expect at the end of your treatment. 

Adults of any age with strong healthy teeth that only have minor to moderate orthodontic issues such as crookedness, overcrowding, misaligned bite, overbite, underbite, or wide spaces between the teeth can be suitable candidates for Invisalign treatment to improve the function and appearance of their teeth and smile. For severe bite problems, your dentist may recommend interdisciplinary treatments, whereby Invisalign is used with other techniques for teeth straightening.

Planning Your Invisalign Treatment

The necessary procedures will be determined when designing your orthodontic treatment plan. If Invisalign is right for you, the dentist will proceed with your treatment planning using 3D computer imaging technology to design the complete treatment plan from your current teeth position to the final desired position. 

This plan will then be used to design a series of custom-made aligners, so that each set is worn for two weeks, within which time it will move specific teeth incrementally towards the desired position. After 14 days, you will switch out that set of aligners with the next one in the series to continue moving your teeth. This process will continue until the final teeth position is achieved at the end of your treatment.
