From Braces to Beautiful

Invisalign® in Nashville

When to Choose Invisalign ® for Clear Aligner Therapy

Invisalign ® was created in 1999 as a response to the growing number of adults opting for orthodontic procedures. They were originally designed to treat mild cosmetic dental corrections. Now, that is no longer the case. Invisalign can be used to correct overbite, underbite, crossbite, gapped teeth, overcrowding, and many of the other common issues that call for orthodontic work.

Another interesting quality about Invisalign® is that they are made with their own patented material called SmartTrack®. SmartTrack® is FDA-approved and made out of thermoplastic that is free of BPA, BPS, gluten and latex. SmartTrack® was developed after 8 years of research and testing nearly 300 different materials to find the most effective one.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

Invisalign® offers a variety of treatment plans. Invisalign Full is the most common and focuses on treating the entire mouth. Invisalign Lite is a shorter treatment option that is best suited for mild malocclusion cases. Invisalign Express 10 is designed for less complicated treatments. Lastly, Invisalign Express 5 and Invisalign i7 are meant for minor crowding and spacing issues. We will examine your orthodontic needs and decide on the best option for you.

Invisalign® is not right for everyone, and at our orthodontic practice, Braces By Dr. Ruth, we will work with you to determine if they are right for you. In the meantime, those who are thinking about Invisalign in Nashville should take these factors into consideration.

Benefits Unique to Invisalign®:

  • Invisalign® aligners are durable and sturdy, which means they tend to be slightly thicker than other options. If you lead an active lifestyle, this quality can help keep your aligners intact. If you do not, you may prefer one of our thinner options, like ClearCorrect®.
  • Invisalign® was the first brand of clear aligners and is often what comes to mind when people think of “invisible braces.” This means that Invisalign® has had many years to evolve and perfect the treatment.
  • Once you begin Invisalign®, your account stays active for five years. This means that if you must stop treatment, you can restart at no additional charge while your account is active.
  • With Invisalign®, we will use their company-designed iTero scanner to track the progression of tooth movement. It takes initial impressions, progress tracking as the process continues, and time lapses to help detect which teeth have shifted.
