Benefits of Invisalign
More and more patients are choosing Invisalign to straighten their teeth or adjust their bite because of its many benefits. Invisalign is:
- Comfortable – rather than dealing with metal brackets and wires, Invisalign treatment simply consists of BPA-free plastic aligners that fit snugly over your teeth for a comfortable fit
- Removable – with fully removable aligners, you are free to eat what you want with no restrictions
- Effective – patients achieve the smile of their dreams in an average of 12 months
- Versatile – Invisalign can be used for more than just straightening teeth; for example, many patients choose Invisalign for gaps in their teeth, mild crowding issues, or can even use Invisalign for overbite, underbite, or other bite problems
The Invisalign process
Your journey to straight teeth starts with your personalized Invisalign consultation. Dr. Scott Siemen will talk with you about what you’d like to change about your smile and will evaluate your teeth and bite to ensure that Invisalign is the best choice for your oral health needs and desired results. Using digital impressions of your teeth, he can then show you what your results would look like – before you even begin treatment! The impressions are then used by the Invisalign laboratory to create your customized set of clear aligners. You wear each set for two weeks, and then switch to the next set in the series, as each set gradually shifts your teeth and bite into their ideal positions. With regular quick and painless check-ups, Dr. Siemen monitors your progress and corrects your plan as needed.

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a treatment to improve the appearance of the smile if you are not satisfied with the arrangement of the teeth.
It is a form of orthodontics that uses aligners and not braces to straighten a person’s teeth.
Who is an ideal candidate for Invisalign?
We find many patients at Paxton Dental Care, who are dissatisfied with the way their teeth look. Not necessarily the color or the shape, but they just don’t like the fact that they may not be as straight as possible.
If you have crooked teeth, overlapping teeth, or crowded or you just don’t feel like your smile is as beautiful as you want, Invisalign is for you.
What are the benefits of Invisalign aligners vs. traditional braces?
People do choose Invisalign over braces because it is far more comfortable and is more efficient. The teeth can be improved in terms of their arrangement to the crookedness quicker than braces.
The other advantage to Invisalign over braces is that the aligners can be removed and left out if a patient wants to do so.
They are far more comfortable than braces, as people don’t experience sore lips and gums. They are far less visible than braces as well.
