We get excited to talk to our patients about our Invisalign services because we have seen the incredible difference this has made for so many others. Invisalign is a non-intrusive way to straighten your teeth without braces. At Dr. Brain Valle P.A., we offer consultation and treatment services to get you the straight smile you’ve always wanted, or maybe had and lost as you got older. If you want straighter teeth without the trouble of braces, Invisalign may be the perfect solution.


Why Invisalign?

Invisalign is a popular teeth-straightening solution, especially among adults, because it can’t be seen. The clear aligners that Invisalign patients wear are nearly impossible to see. This allows working professionals to feel confident in meetings and work events without the heavy appearance of metal brackets. The aligners can be taken out when eating and drinking, which removes any fuss that regular braces have about what you should and shouldn’t eat. This also means that you can brush and floss without having to work around metal wires and brackets. The combination of convenience and appearance is what makes Invisalign such a great option for many people. 


Getting Started

First, we will have you in for a consultation to ensure Invisalign is the right solution for you. Even though Invisalign works for most tooth straightening needs, there are cases when, unfortunately, traditional braces will be better. We will never recommend a straightening treatment that is not what we believe is best for your teeth, gums, and jaws. 

Next, we will get a 3D image of your teeth. The process works by making gradual changes to your teeth with different aligners over time. You will wear several aligners over the course of the treatment, each one moving your teeth one step closer to perfectly straight teeth. This 3D scan makes it possible to map out the number of aligners needed to reach that end result and the length of the overall Invisalign treatment. 

After your first aligner is prepared, you will come in and see us. We will sit down with you and make sure that the aligners fit well and that everything looks as it should. We can also answer your questions and help you know how to navigate your new life with Invisalign. This will include specific instructions on when to take them out, how to clean and care for them, and anything else you need to know to have a good experience. 

Depending on your teeth, your treatment could be shorter or longer. Treatment can be as short as six months or as long as two years. The nice thing is that you are able to start noticing and enjoying the results within weeks. Because you can see your teeth completely, especially when the aligners are out, you can enjoy your progress and get more excited about what is to come. 


After Invisalign

Like traditional braces, you will need to wear a retainer after your Invisalign treatment to maintain the results. We can consult with you on retainer options. Many options can have the same clear and simple benefits that your Invisalign retainers had. Whatever you decide on a long-term retainer solution, we will be by your side to help you maintain your new smile. Please book a consultation with us today to get your questions about Invisalign and the right straightening solution for you.
