The way I explain Invisalign is I start with conventional, first of all. I look at conventional orthodontics fitting under a big umbrella. Under this umbrella are all the different problems that we can fix. Invisalign is just a smaller umbrella within this bigger umbrella. It is a little bit more limited. It doesn't mean it's not effective. If you choose the right patient with the right problems, it can do some beautiful work but you have to be mindful of its limitations. I always tell people about the limitations, what we can and what we cannot do with Invisalign. When we find that right patient, of course we give them the option of either conventional or the Invisalign.They definitely like the convenience of the product. They also like the aesthetics of it because you don't really see any appliance. It's more invisible so to speak. It is more patient-dependent, so if they don't follow the instructions, then they're going to get the results depending on how much effort they put into it. It does take some responsibility on the patient's side to make this successful. Otherwise, if you get all the cards in the right places, it can be a very successful experience with the patient.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that gives you straight teeth and a beautiful smile without using metal brackets or wires. The secret is in the clear plastic aligners (kind of like mouthguards) that fit over your teeth and gradually move them into the correct spots in your mouth.
You will get several aligners that you will move through. Every two weeks (or as directed by your Sierra Dental Care dentist), you will move to the next aligner in your series. At the end of your Invisalign series, you will have a straight smile that you can be proud of.
You will need to come in for a consultation before beginning your orthodontic treatment. Not all orthodontic conditions can be treated by Invisalign, and it isn’t effective for our younger patients because their dental structure is still developing. This orthodontic treatment is best for late teens and adults.

Benefits Of Invisalign
- Comfort – The smooth plastic that makes up your clear aligner trays are very comfortable. Sierra Dental Care will fit you with custom aligner trays so can go about your life as if nothing has changed, because nothing has.
- Appearance – There is hardly any evidence of your Invisalign treatment to others around you, so you can feel completely confident at work or socializing with your friends.
- Speed – Clear braces can correct your smile very quickly. In most cases, treatment is only 12 months. Get started on the one-year road to your new smile by calling today!
- Convenience – The clear aligner trays are removable. You need to wear them for at least 20 hours per day, but you remove them for your oral hygiene routine and for meals. This means you’ll brush and floss like normal, and your diet won’t change, either. Eat what you want, and then put your aligners back in – it’s that simple.
