Having a winning smile full of straight, even teeth can give you confidence in social situations. Invisalign continues to grow as a popular option for adults with minor alignment issues that want to improve their smile in as little as six to eight weeks.

The aligner trays are made from a clear durable plastic material, that makes it hard for the casual observer to even notice you’re wearing them. To effectively realign your teeth, you will need to wear Invisalign for at least 20 hours each day. Each set of aligners is designed to gradually adjust your teeth one step closer to your ideal alignment goals.

To be fitted for Invisalign, our dental professionals will need to examine your mouth and take a few X-rays. This helps define your alignment goals and the number of aligners needed to give you the winning smile you’ve always wanted.

Every two weeks or so, you will switch to another set of aligners that are designed one small step closer to your ideal alignment. Many of the people that have Red Mountain Family Dental fit them for Invisalign meet their alignment goals in as few as three or four sets of aligner trays.

While wearing Invisalign you can talk and drink normally. However, you will need to remove them before eating. You should also avoid smoking or chewing gum while the aligners are in your mouth. When you are not wearing the aligners you should keep the aligners in the case provided.
