Invisalign Centennial

Straight teeth can improve your smile and enhance your appearance. More importantly, orthodontic treatment improves your oral health and can prevent serious problems later in life. Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces offered by Dr. Tran at Centennial Smiles.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a completely different kind of orthodontic treatment that consists of clear plastic aligners you wear over your teeth. The aligners are removable and you typically change to a new set of aligners every two or three weeks. Aligners are made from computer-assisted designs based on a mold of your teeth. Each is slightly different and designed to move the teeth a little more with each change in aligners. Because they are almost invisible, adults in high profile jobs or media-related occupations often prefer this treatment to conventional braces.

What's Different About Invisalign?

The most significant difference in Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. They must be taken out to eat and to perform oral hygiene. Because they are removable, you need not modify your diet, and oral hygiene is much easier than with traditional metal braces. The aligners are made from smooth plastic, so you are less likely to have sore spots from a broken wire or a bracket that rubs on the tissue. Finally, the clear plastic aligners are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces.

Who Can Wear Invisalign?

Both teens and adults are good candidates for Invisalign. Invisalign cannot be used in younger teens or children because their teeth are still growing. As the aligner must fit the teeth, it is not practical to keep making different size aligners as the child's teeth grow. Adults and teens also are more likely to have the necessary self-discipline to wear the aligner for the recommended minimum of 22 hours a day. Invisalign is used by our centennial dentist for problems like gaps between the teeth, cross bites, crooked teeth, and most overbites and underbites. Severe malocclusion – teeth that don't match properly because the jaw is too large or too small – usually cannot be treated with Invisalign.

What's Invisalign Treatment Like?

Like any dental appliance or orthodontic braces, you'll need to get used to wearing Invisalign. Generally, patients find the aligners comfortable, although there may be a sensation of pressure as the teeth move. The aligners are made to conform to the teeth and fit tightly enough that they cannot be dislodged during speech. Occasionally, people will notice a slight difference in their speech when the aligner is in place. You'll see your orthodontist about once every six weeks; you'll also get a new series of aligners about every three months. Depending on your orthodontic problems and response to treatment, treatment will take one to three years.

Like any orthodontics centennial treatment, success with Invisalign depends on the original problem, how your teeth respond to treatment and how well you follow your orthodontist's instructions. Please contact us if you have questions or want to schedule an appointment with Dr. Tran.

I'm usually pressed for time in the mornings, and I appreciate how Invisalign doesn't slow me down. I just pop out the aligners, brush my teeth and pop 'em back in.

Testimonials

★★★★★ I highly recommend the dental team at Centennial Smiles! I just recently had a few of my old silver fillings break and urgently sought out help from Centennial Smiles's providers. Visiting the dentist and knowing you need extensive dental work done can be very daunting, and that's where a friendly, professional front desk staff made all the difference. The office at Centennial Smiles is also extremely flexible and accommodating when booking appointments. They make sure their patients are comfortable and never left waiting. I would recommend Centennial Smiles to any of my own friends and family and cannot imagine getting my dental work done anywhere else.

★★★★★ I highly recommend Centennial Smiles. The entire staff was friendly and professional. I'm generally anxious going to the dentist, but Dr. Chris a nd Angel (dental assistant) made my experience so pleasant, and they took pride in the ir work and explained everything step by step as it was happening. MJ (manager) was so efficient. She explained my benefits and took the time to call my insurance to make sure the procedures were being covered. I'm so happy that I'm finally in good hands. Thank you so much!

★★★★★ If you are in Las Vegas and need work done, this is the place to go. I was visiting family members and had a dental emergency. The staff was friendly, helpful, and gave me a same-day appointment. Though my insurance did not cover it, their price for the service was very reasonable. It's too bad I live in California.
