Invisalign vs. Traditional Orthodontics

Traditional Metal Braces

Probably what you imagine when you hear the term "braces," traditional orthodontics uses metal brackets, bands, and wires to straighten the teeth. These appliances are visible, but they can address a wide range of mild to severe orthodontic problems.

Clear Aligner Therapy with Invisalign

The Invisalign system also straightens teeth over time. But instead of using metal components, your Scottsdale, AZ, dentist uses clear, thermoplastic removable aligners. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately one week before upgrading to the next set.

See How They Differ

This video breaks down the main differences between Invisalign and metal braces.

What Conditions Can Invisalign Address?

One of the best things about Invisalign is that it can treat many of the same orthodontic conditions as traditional braces. Clear aligners can correct:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded or overlapped teeth
  • Gaps or spaces
  • Rotated teeth 
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites

But Is Invisalign Right for Me?

During your initial appointment, we can discuss similar cases and show you before and after photos. We'll also discuss your concerns, goals, and health history. Aligner therapy may be right for you if you have:

Good Oral Health

Before moving the teeth, we must ensure that you do not have extensive tooth decay, gum disease, or other serious problems.

Mild to Moderate Misalignment

While clear aligners can correct the majority of orthodontic problems, complex cases may require traditional orthodontics.

A Commitment to Treatment

To be effective, aligners must be worn a minimum of 22 hours every day. They should only be removed to brush, floss, eat, and drink.

Invisalign Treatment Timeline

Invisalign treatment takes about 12 to 18 months to complete. It may take shorter or longer depending on your specific case. Here are some general steps to expect during the treatment process:
Treatment can often be completed in as little as 12 months.
Treatment can often be completed in as little as 12 months.

X-rays

First, our dental team takes x-rays and scans. This will confirm that your teeth and gums are healthy enough to undergo treatment with the Invisalign system.

Impressions

Next, your dentist takes impressions. These are sent to Align Technology, where a skilled lab technician will use them to fabricate your clear aligners.

Fitting Your Trays

Once the Invisalign lab creates your aligners, they will be shipped to our Scottsdale, AZ, office. Dr. Sielicki will try in the first set to ensure they fit properly.

Active Treatment

You will be given instructions for daily wear. Your clear aligners must be worn for 22 hours every single day. Dr. Sielicki will let you know when to move up to the next set.

Retention

Once your teeth have been moved into their proper positions, you must wear a retainer to keep them from shifting back. We will provide you with detailed instructions.
