Artisan Family Dentistry Glendale AZ


A Modern Approach to Straightening Teeth

Over one million patients have benefited from Invisalign—and the number is growing every day. Why? Because Invisalign offers the clinical outcomes your patients want, all with a removable appliance that‘s virtually undetectable when worn. It’s an ideal solution for the majority of adults and teenagers—and now the #1 brand for orthodontic patients.




1. Getting Started

Dr. Carson will take x-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth, which Invisalign will use to create a digital 3-D image of them. From these images Dr. Carson will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth. Using this same technology, Dr. Carson will even be able to show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment.




2. Getting Your Personal, Custom Aligners

Based on your individual treatment plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners are then created specifically for you. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces often do. Simply wear them throughout the day, and remove them when you eat or to brush and floss your teeth. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually begin to shift into place. And because they’re virtually invisible, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.




3. A Simple Process – With Only Occasional Checkups

Approximately every two weeks, you will begin wearing a new set of aligners, advancing you to the next stage of your treatment. To monitor your progress, you will also have occasional checkups with Dr. Carson, usually only every 6-8 weeks. At every stage, you will be able to see how much closer you are to having the smile that reflects the real you.




4. Length Of Time Until You Reveal Your New Smile

While every case is unique to each patient, Invisalign Full treatment typically takes approximately six month to a year or more for adults. Also available are shorter treatments…. Invisalign Express 5 and Express 10 offer solutions for minor tooth movement and are also more budget-friendly. For best results and a timely outcome, you should wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, throughout your entire treatment.
