Straighten Your Smile with Invisalign®, instead of Braces
Braces don’t need to cover your beautiful smile with metal brackets and wires when you visit Drs. Rollins, Petersen and Larson for Invisalign®. Our orthodontists offer these clear, smooth aligners because they help you retain confidence during treatment. Contact our Rollins & Petersen team if you want to benefit from Invisalign in Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Globe and Queen Creek, Arizona.
Choosing between Invisalign® and metal braces
Invisalign® is a great option for our patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign® system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your smile. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will be gradually and gently guided to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, Invisalign® can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our orthodontist may recommend Invisalign to correct:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite
What to expect when starting Invisalign®
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign®. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign® aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed in order to eat, brush, and floss. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign®.
