Are you thinking about straightening your teeth with orthodontics? Invisalign is rapidly becoming the most popular orthodontic method in Las Vegas. When compared to the alternative of traditional metal brackets, bands, and wires, Invisalign outshines dental braces as the best method for straightening teeth in many cases. Request a complimentary consultation with Dr. Mark Edington at our Las Vegas dental office, and he can determine if Invisalign is right for you. We're conveniently located in the Silverado Ranch neighborhood of Las Vegas, at the intersection of E. Silverado Ranch Blvd. and S. Maryland Pkwy.
What is Invisalign?
With your Invisalign treatment, you will receive a series of clear, removable aligners to carefully guide teeth into healthier positions planned by Dr. Edington. The best part about Invisalign? No one can tell that you're coming to us for treatment! At Modern Dental Care, we're proud to use the latest 3-D computer imaging technology to make your Invisalign, providing you with a comfortable and effective experience at our Las Vegas dental office.
Why would I want Invisalign instead of regular braces?
Invisalign aligners are fabricated with the most transparent, thin, and technologically advanced CLEAR aligner. For effective tooth movement, clear resin bumps may be attached to select teeth here at our Las Vegas dental office. These attachments are typically quite small and do not affect speech. The aligners are made of thermoplastic that covers teeth, which makes them COMFORTABLE because there is no metal protruding to scrape the inside of lip or tongue. Invisalign is also more comfortable than traditional metal braces because weekly teeth movements are programmed methodically and gradually. Metal braces are typically adjusted with torque or tension added on a monthly basis and thus may be more likely to cause discomfort. The Invisalign clear aligner system is precisely laser cut to avoid gum impingement, unlike other aligner systems. Invisalign dental emergencies are extremely rare. There are no wires or sharp objects that can break loose in the mouth. In fact, we have patients here in Las Vegas that have performed on stage while straightening teeth with Invisalign! Invisalign aligners are REMOVABLE. Invisalign can be taken out when eating and for routine dental hygiene. With braces, you would be picking food particles out of metal brackets and wires. Teenagers may adapt to the difficult hygiene of dental braces because they are forced to do so when parents choose traditional orthodontics; however, adults find the difficult hygiene and food limitations extremely frustrating. For this reason, Invisalign is the number one choice for adults in Las Vegas. Teenagers enjoy Invisalign too. The Invisalign aligners have the “cool factor” that teens enjoy showing to friends. Its funny how technology has advanced to the point where teeth straightening is so transparent that we now take Invisalign aligners out to show others we are straightening teeth! And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in our office in Las Vegas getting adjustments. At our dental office, Dr. Edington can easily show you your virtual Invisalign treatment plan when you start so you can see how your teeth will look when your treatment has finished.
How does Invisalign work?
During your Invisalign treatment, you will wear a set of aligners for about two weeks, 23 hours each day. Aligners are only removed during mealtimes and to brush and floss. With each new set of aligners, teeth will move gradually to their final positions. You'll visit Modern Dental Care about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. The average total treatment time is less than 12 months, and you will typically wear between 18 and 30 aligners, but both time and number of aligners vary from one patient to another.
