Uncorrected alignment issues with your teeth can leave you with an unappealing smile and a mouth at risk for dental dysfunctions, like enamel attrition and dental fractures. One of the easiest ways to improve the position of your teeth without the use of traditional braces is to be fitted for Invisalign® at Red Mountain Family Dental.

These are removable aligners that are custom created from a durable, clear, plastic material. While you’re wearing them, the casual observer will struggle to even notice you are wearing Invisalign.

Each set of aligners is designed to move your teeth one step closer to your final alignment goals. At two week intervals, you will need to switch out to a new set of clear, plastic aligners. Each new pair is tuned to bring you one gradual step closer to your final alignment goals.

While you have Invisalign in your mouth, you can drink and speak normally. Yet, you should abstain from eating, chewing gum, or using tobacco products. If you need to remove the aligners, you should keep them in the case provided. Improvising with a napkin or a plastic bag is inadvisable.

After your treatment, Dr. Scott Josephson and Dr. Timothy Yu will likely fit you for a clear, plastic retainer. This is a simple, removable dental appliance that is made from a similar clear, plastic material like the Invisalign aligners. Wearing it for a few weeks during the prescribed times will help ensure that your teeth will remain in their new positions.

If you live in the Mesa, Arizona, area and you need to have minor corrections made to the alignment of your teeth, you should call 480-641-4165 to set up an Invisalign consultation at Red Mountain Family Dental.
