Choosing the Right Invisalign® Specialist for You

Dr. Trobough is very experienced and understands the intricate details of using Invisalign® clear braces to straighten a patient’s teeth, close gaps that are present, and correct an overbite. There are many factors to consider in order to determine if a patient is eligible for treatment with Invisalign®, and it requires attention to detail to ensure the treatments are going as planned.

What are Invisalign® Clear Braces?

There have been many advancements in modern dental treatments over the years, but one of the most popular advancements has been the introduction of clear braces. For some people, the look and feel of metal braces is not an ideal solution for straightening their teeth. They can cut the inside of patient’s mouths, and people just don’t like the look of metal braces in general.

Invisalign is an innovative dental treatment that solves many problems associated with traditional metal braces.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Working in the same manner as traditional braces, Invisalign® gently moves teeth into their preferred position. Treatment starts with a 3D image that is taken of the entire head to determine how your teeth should look when the treatment is completed. This means that the results are going to be as close to perfect as possible because the 3D imaging allows Dr. Trobough to plan for your treatment and progressive results.

The treatment system involves using aligner trays that are specially designed and fitted for your teeth. These need to be adjusted on a regular basis and you will receive a series of aligner trays over time to continue to put pressure on your teeth, making them move into the desired location.

What Steps are Involved in Getting Invisalign® Braces?

There are a number of steps involved in obtaining Invisalign® Clear Braces. These include:

  • Meet with Dr. Trobough to discuss your need for braces
  • Review the options for braces
  • Take a 3D image of your face and mouth
  • Send off your images to Invisalign Clear Braces
  • Get fitted for the aligner trays that are used to move your teeth over time
  • Continue to care for your teeth during treatments and follow-up appointments

What Can You Expect From Your Invisalign® Treatment?

Opting for Invisalign® Clear Braces means you won’t have to wear braces for as long as you would with traditional braces. What’s more, the invisible aligner trays are removable and you can take them out while you are eating, drinking, and when you brush and floss your teeth. Treatments can last between 9 and 24 months, depending on how much movement is required to straighten your teeth. As well, the time it takes to move your teeth into their desired position will depend on how strictly you adhere to the guidelines for wearing your aligner trays. It’s a collaborative effort, and Dr. Trobough provides all of the information you need to make sure you are prepared to wear your aligner trays until treatment is completed. Patients typically need 20-25 aligner trays over the course of treatment, but everyone is different so you can discuss your needs with our highly skilled team at our Northwest Las Vegas dental office.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign® Clear Braces?

In addition to seeing more rapid results, you can rest easy knowing that Invisalign® Clear Braces reduce the pain and discomfort associated with traditional braces. They work to constantly apply pressure to your teeth and because you switch out aligner trays so frequently, your teeth keep moving in the right direction. What’s more, Invisalign® Clear Braces are a great choice for people who might be self-conscious about wearing traditional metal braces. Many adults opt for Invisalign® Clear Braces because they don’t want to wear metal braces to work or in their social circles. While teenagers are frequently the recipients of metal braces, more and more are opting for Invisalign® Clear Braces to reduce the look and discomfort of metal braces.
