Invisalign Dentists Near MeMetal braces are no longer the only option when it comes to achieving straighter teeth. With Invisalign® clear aligners, our Jackson cosmetic dentists can help teen or adult patients correct crooked, crowded, or spaced teeth as well as fix bite issues.

The aligners contain no metal brackets or wires whatsoever and are removable for brushing, flossing, and eating.

Benefits of Invisalign

Many patients that choose Invisalign aligners for their orthodontic treatment are pleased to find that there are several unique advantages. For instance, the aligners themselves are subtle and only detectable up close by friends, family, and co-workers.

Invisalign clear aligners are also:

  • Capable of producing desired results in 12 months or less on average.
  • Removable for eating food, drinking beverages other than water, brushing, and flossing.
  • Less restrictive compared to metal braces (no need to avoid sticky or chewy foods).
  • Free from repairs or adjustments; simply put in the next set of aligners when instructed.

What to Expect With Invisalign Treatment

To create your custom clear aligners, we’ll start by taking digital impressions of your teeth using an intraoral scanner that is capable of capturing 3D images. These detailed images will then be sent over to the Invisalign lab where technicians there will produce your very own series of aligners.

Once back in our Jackson dental office, the aligners will be given to you with a protective case and general instructions. The first set that you put on will feel tight and uncomfortable but this is normal. The feeling should go away after a day or so. Each aligner set, including the first, will move your teeth gradually for a few weeks before you switch to the next.

Our dentists ask that you wear each set of aligners in your series at least 22-23 hours a day to ensure proper progress is made. That means in the few hours when you are not eating, drinking, or brushing and flossing your teeth, the aligners are in your mouth.
