If you are looking for a way to boost your confidence and straighten your smile, consider Invisalign® at our Mesa, AZ practice. Using clear aligner trays, Invisalign® can improve minor cosmetic issues, such as crooked or gapped teeth. With recent improvements, the treatment can also correct overall alignment issues like an overbite or underbite. Invisalign® uses clear aligner trays that will be virtually invisible. At Value Dental Centers Mesa, our orthodontists will work meticulously to make sure that your aligners are a near-perfect fit for your mouth. Typically more comfortable than traditional braces, Invisalign® trays are convenient and hassle-free. Most importantly, they will straighten your smile, improving your overall health and appearance.
Are a Candidate for Invisalign®?
If you are struggling with any of the following orthodontic concerns, Invisalign® may be for you:
- An overbite
- An underbite
- A crossbite

- Rotated or tipped teeth
- Slightly crooked or gapped teeth
Please note that if you have more severe orthodontic problems, traditional braces may be more effective for you.
Invisalign® is suitable for both teens and adults. However, to undergo any orthodontic treatment, you should have good oral health. Before providing receiving your Invisalign® trays, our dental staff will evaluate your health and treat any decay, weakened teeth, or gum disease.
How Invisalign® Works
During your consultation, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth. The precise digital images will ensure that your aligners are both effective and comfortable. Then your orthodontics practitioner will design your aligners on a chairside computer there in the room with you. During this process, he or she will explain the treatment progression and what you can expect when your orthodontic care is complete
When the designs are finished, technicians at the Invisalign® lab will create your tray aligners from BPA-free plastic. Every two weeks, you will wear a different tray. Each one in the series is sized differently to put a slight pressure on your dental arches. In this way, the aligners can gradually shift your teeth into healthier positions. Depending on the extent of your orthodontic issues, treatment time can vary. In most cases, however, Invisalign® takes about the same amount of time as traditional braces.
The obvious advantage is that few people will notice you are wearing the clear aligners. Their smooth design also makes treatment more comfortable, since they will not irritate your lips and cheeks. They will also place less pressure on your teeth than standard braces. Plus, since the trays are removable, you can eat all of your favorite foods, and it will be easy to brush and floss afterwards. Lastly, when you choose Invisalign®, your orthodontist will not need to adjust your braces periodically. This will cut down on your dental visits, so you will have to take less time out of your busy schedule.
