Our team at Advanced Dental of Las Cruces, NM is genuinely concerned about the oral health of our community. More than that, we really want you to have a smile that makes you happy at any age.
It doesn’t take a psychology degree to know that if you do not have a smile you are willing to share with the world, you may be self-conscious about your appearance, and also lacking in self-confidence.
Unfortunately, you might even be putting yourself at risk for more serious health issues in your mouth if you don’t look into solutions.
The good news is that, if you have misaligned, crooked or crowded teeth, our team has a viable solution for you, adult orthodontics.
Adult Orthodontics Are A Viable Solution
We offer adult orthodontic treatment at Advanced Dental, including the increasingly popular Invisalign technique.
This is one of our best options for helping you get the smile you have always longed for and it comes without the all the clunky intrusions of traditional metal braces.
Invisalign Is The Clear Choice For Discreet Treatment
Invisalign first appeared on the orthodontic scene in the late 1990s as a sleek and modern alternative and has radically improved the possibilities and experience of wearing braces ever since.
The process, though brilliant, is really pretty simple and user-friendly and it all begins with a consultation in our office.
During your preliminary Invisalign consultation, our Advanced Dental team will secure digital impressions of your teeth in order to have custom molds designed for the clear aligners that will do the work previously done by metal wires and brackets.
Treatment doesn’t actually begin until these custom built aligners are ready to wear, usually within the week following your visit.
As it happens, throughout the Invisalign process, you will wear a series of aligners, and each one will be designed for a specific two-week time period.
The aligners are necessarily shaped slightly differently so that they can gradually straighten your teeth. That is why, after each two week increment, you will move to the next set of aligners and continue until your desired treatment results are achieved, usually 12-18 months after starting the process.
Convenience Is The Key
Because the Invisalign system relies on clear, nearly invisible trays, no one will ever have to know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. This is a huge plus to our adult, professionally active patients.
These patients can tell you that there is even more good news for those considering Invisalign.
It used to be that, while wearing braces, whatever you ate ended up trapped in the intricate web of metal that had overtaken your mouth. As such, keeping deluxe tools and other accessories for cleaning on hand was just part of the deal.
With this more modern orthodontic approach, however, your regular activities won’t have to be modified in any way, including your tendencies and preferences related to taking meals.
This is because Invisalign aligners are designed to be removable. You are allowed to take them out when it seems appropriate (like at dinner time). To clean them, you just pop them out, rinse them under warm water while they are outside of your mouth, and then pop them back into place.
