Oklahoma City Invisalign

Have you ever wanted to get your teeth straightened but didn't want to wear wires and brackets for two or three years? If so, Invisalign may be a great solution for you.

Oklahoma City Invisalign aligners.

How Invisalign Works

We'll begin with a comprehensive exam. Everything from the general health of your teeth to the crowding and root health will be examined. If you are a candidate for Invisalign, we'll then take a mold of your mouth. This will then be sent to the Invisalign laboratory, where they use a sophisticated computer program to design and manufacture a set of aligners that will straighten your teeth in about half the time of traditional braces.

When you get your first pair of aligners, you'll notice they don't quite fit. That is intentional. The aligners gently guide your teeth into proper alignment. In a few days the aligners will fit naturally, and after about two weeks it will be time for the next set. In about six months to a year you'll have the straight smile you've always wanted— all without anyone even knowing you were doing it.

Advantages of Invisalign

  • No one will be able to tell you are wearing braces. From a normal conversational distance, they are truly invisible.
  • You can eat anything you want. Simply remove the aligners before meals and replace them afterward. You'll never have to worry about food getting stuck in your braces.
  • Your oral hygiene is a snap. You can brush and floss normally. Simply remove the aligners when it's time to brush your teeth.
  • Your teeth will be straightened in about half the time of traditional braces. While normal wire and bracket braces may take between two to three years to straighten your teeth, Invisalign will accomplish the same thing in about six months to a year.
  • They are much more comfortable than traditional braces— Nothing to poke at you and irritate inside your mouth.

Disadvantages of Invisalign

  • They require patient compliance. Because the aligners can be removed by the patient, sometimes they don't work for teenagers or children who could lose them.
  • Because of the lab fees, they are slightly more expensive than traditional braces.

Am I an Invisalign candidate?

Most people with slight-to-moderate crowding and teeth that are fully erupted are candidates for Invisalign—but not everyone. If you would like to ask Dr. Swearingen if your are a candidate, we'd be happy to set up a complimentary consultation.

Invisalign patients have a high level of patient satisfaction. Nine out of ten patients recommend them to others.
