Glenn Dental is proud to be recognized as the High Deserts #1 Provider of Invisalign brand clear aligners. Invisalign has been offering its clear aligners for the purpose of orthodontics since 2000. They are constantly innovating and improving their product. The advantage of Invisalign is that it allows for practically invisible orthodontics. Invisalign does away with wires and brackets that can cause self-consciousness and anxiety for some people who are correcting positioning problems with their teeth.
Another advantage with Invisalign is that since there are no wires or brackets, wearers are better able to maintain their hygiene while in treatment than patients using traditional wires and brackets. The key to Invisalign is patient participation. Patients in treatment with Invisalign must wear their trays 22 hours a day. Basically you take them off for eating and for oral care (brushing, flossing) then put them back in. These trays, in conjunction with buttons that are attached to the teeth, put a light, but steady pressure on the teeth that causes them to move, a tiny bit, with each tray. Therapy involves changes from tray to tray. Patients typically receive several trays and are appointed for visits at specified intervals to determine tracking and progress. Invisalign is also compatible with accelerated orthodontics, which if utilized, can dramatically reduce the movement phase of your treatment, and can reduce pain and sensitivity that often can accompany orthodontic treatment.
