Invisalign®: A Discreet, Comfortable Orthodontic Option

Elite Dental Care provides Invisalign® at our Germantown, Trenton, and Jackson, TN, offices for a comfortable and simple way to straighten your teeth. These customized aligner trays allow you to eat all your favorite foods, and never feel self-conscious about the conspicuous metal brackets and wires associated with traditional braces. Virtually invisible, Invisalign® is an effective cosmetic treatment most often chosen by patients for a discreet way to treat misalignment. During your initial consultation, your dentist will assess the state of your smile to determine if Invisalign® is right for you.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

Invisalign® uses a series of customized aligner trays created with advanced computer technology and made from BPA-free plastic. The inconspicuous and hassle-free features of this orthodontic system have contributed immensely to its growing popularity and commercial success.

To create your customized trays, one of our dentists will take a series of digital images of your teeth, which he will send to a high-quality dental lab. A skilled technician will create your custom aligners. With these digital images, your dentist can also reveal what kind of results you can expect and your estimated treatment timeline.

During a follow-up appointment, your dentist will present you with a series of custom-made trays that will fit comfortably over your teeth. You will wear each set of custom trays daily for about two consecutive weeks, before switching to the next set of aligner trays in the series. Each set of trays will gently and gradually move your teeth into optimal alignment.

Similar to any other orthodontic treatment, the length of treatment depends on the complexity of your misalignment. Your dentist will monitor your progress every six weeks. In most cases, the average length of treatment for patients is 12 months. 


Are You a Candidate for Invisalign®?

If you are concerned with a minor to moderate case of misalignment, Invisalign® may be a good solution for you. These customized aligner trays can treat a wide variety of orthodontic concerns, such as:

  • An overbite
  • An open bite
  • A crossbite
  • An underbite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crooked teeth

To qualify for Invisalign®, it is also important that you have healthy teeth and gums and are very disciplined in your oral hygiene practices. Invisalign® relies on patient compliance, and you will need to wear the trays for at least 22 hours a day. Although these trays can treat some severe orthodontic cases, your doctor can help determine if traditional braces are a better option for you.

Benefits of the Treatment Option

The dentists at Elite Dental Care are highly skilled in cosmetic dentistry and can provide you with effective care and guidance to complete your Invisalign® treatment as quickly as possible. By choosing Invisalign®, you will benefit from several treatment aspects, such as:

  • The ability to remove the trays for up to two hours a day to enjoy the foods you like
  • Easy to brush and floss your teeth and clean the aligners
  • Fewer visits to the dentist than with traditional braces
  • Virtually invisible
  • More comfortable than traditional braces

Overall, you can expect to enjoy a more attractive smile and boost in confidence at the end of your treatment.
