At Doctor Smiles Orthodontics, we want to make sure our patients have all the information they need to make informed choices about their orthodontic treatment. So for today's blog, we're going to take a look at one of the biggest buzzwords in orthodontics - Invisalign. We'll tell you all you need to know about this exciting alternative to braces, and we've got an easy-to-understand infographic to help us do it.

Invisalign with Your Tucson Orthodontist

Invisalign is an alternative treatment to braces that uses a set of clear, virtually invisible plastic trays to correct your teeth. The trays are removable, meaning you can easily take them out to eat, brush, and floss, and virtually invisible, so no one needs to know you're straightening your teeth! Invisalign is also a very convenient form of treatment: in addition to having no dietary restrictions, Invisalign requires less time in the orthodontist's chair, meaning you have more freedom to live your life during your treatment. Of the 2.5 million people who have been treated with Invisalign worldwide, a whopping 96% say they are satisfied with their treatment, making Invisalign one of the most effective treatments in orthodontics.

Invisalign can be used to treat a wide variety of orthodontic conditions:

Crowding: When the teeth are packed too tightly together
Spacing: When the teeth are too far apart
Crossbite: When the upper and lower jaw are misaligned
Overbite: When the upper front teeth jut out over the lower front teeth
Underbite: When the lower front teeth extend past the upper

The only way to be sure that Invisalign is right for you is to have an appointment with our Tucson orthodontist, Dr. Marisela Bedoya. You can request an appointment online using our convenient form, or feel free to contact us at 520-571-1756. We look forward to hearing from you!
