Invisalign Salt Lake City, Utah

Invisalign is an exciting alternative to traditional braces that does away with the metal brackets and wires. Instead, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic trays, called aligners, to straighten the teeth. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn, and they’re easy to pop out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.

Benefits of Invisalign

Thanks to their unique construction, Invisalign comes with several benefits over other orthodontic treatments, including:

  • Very Discreet: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so most people won’t even know you are wearing them, making them perfect for professional or social events.
  • Easy Oral Hygiene: Because you remove your aligners to brush and floss, oral hygiene is as easy as ever, and you’ll never have to deal with cumbersome tools like floss threaders.
  • No Dietary Restrictions: Invisalign aligners are removed before eating, so you won’t have the dietary restrictions that come with braces. This means you can still enjoy all your favorite foods during treatment.
  • More Comfortable: The smooth surface of Invisalign aligners won’t cause tiny cuts and scratches in the mouth like braces, allowing for a more comfortable treatment experience.
  • More Convenient: Invisalign aligners require fewer visits throughout treatment, no emergency visits, and, in many cases, they work faster than traditional braces.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign treatment is a relatively straightforward process, and while every patient is different, treatment typically takes around 12-18 months. For most patients, this is the treatment process:

  • During your initial consultation, we will perform a thorough oral examination and take diagnostic records to understand your orthodontic condition.
  • Your orthodontic team will use these records to construct a fully-realized 3D computer model of your mouth and bite. This model will be used to plan out your treatment and to create your custom set of Invisalign aligners.
  • Once you receive your aligners, you’ll wear them for 20-22 hours per day, removing only to eat, drink, brush, and floss your teeth.
  • You’ll wear each set of aligners for two weeks before switching to the next in the sequence. With each new pair, your teeth shift closer to their final positions.

Once you finish your last pair of aligners, your new smile is yours to keep!
