Invisalign in Boulder, CO
Dr. Jose Lopez provides Invisalign in Boulder, CO. Invisalign is a teeth-straightening treatment, similar to braces, that continues to become more popular due to its many advantages over traditional braces. As the name suggests, Invisalign is nearly invisible, unlike traditional braces with their noticeable metal parts. Invisalign is also more comfortable due to its ability to be temporarily removed whenever necessary. For example, to eat and drink. Invisalign can also be much shorter than traditional braces, reducing treatment time by years. If you’re ready to begin your journey with Invisalign in Boulder, CO, Dr. Lopez is ready to get you started.
How does Invisalign Treatment Work?
Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. During your initial consultation, Dr. Lopez will begin by discussing Invisalign and ensuring that they are right for you. If you decide to begin the procedure, he will take photographs and impressions of your teeth, which will be converted into a 3D model by Invisalign. After about four weeks, your first set of aligners will arrive from the Invisalign lab and your treatment will begin. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.
Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time to get the results you’re after with as little discomfort as possible.
When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor.
Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place.
When your treatment is complete, Dr. Lopez recommends the continual use of nightly retainers so that the results you so diligently worked for are maintained.
