An Improvement from Traditional Braces

Advantages of Invisalign®
Along with being a discreet, removable orthodontic treatment, Invisalign® clear aligners offer additional advantages for our patients, including:
Designed specifically for your smile, your clear aligners will fit right over your teeth, ensuring comfort and delivering the smile of your dreams.
Using patented SmartTrack® material, Invisalign provides a treatment process that is nearly two times faster than traditional orthodontics.
During your consultation, you can see a close prediction of how your smile will look after treatment, allowing you to feel confident in the decision you make.
The clear aligners are nearly invisible.
How The Invisalign® Process Will Go
When you visit Dixon Family Dental for your initial consultation, Dr. Daniels-Dixon will sit with you to discuss your smile goals and review the expected process. She’ll also examine your mouth with our dental technology to create a digital image of your smile so we can send it to the Invisalign® lab where your aligners are made.
Throughout your treatment, you’ll receive a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks. You’ll need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day to achieve optimal results. The trays should only be removed for eating, cleaning, and brushing your teeth.
Generally, Invisalign® treatment takes about 12 to 18 months. Many of our patients will even start to see results within just a few weeks. Dr. Daniels-Dixon will regularly check your progress throughout the course of your treatment and make any adjustments to your plan if necessary.
Once we’ve completed your treatment, you’ll be able to exude newfound confidence from a healthy, beautiful smile.
