I am being treated with Invisalign by Sonoran Dental Design. Dr Sielicki and her assistant Kelly used a digital scanner to create a 3D model of my teeth and showed me a rendering of the exact movements my teeth would make during treatment. The process was simple and easy. Dr Sielicki and her team clearly have the best technology, team, and clinical skills. I am looking forward to all my future visits!

Invisalign vs. Traditional Orthodontics

Traditional Metal Braces

This form of 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 Treatment With Invisalign

The Invisalign system also straightens teeth over time, but it uses a series of clear, removable plastic aligners to achieve results. Each set of aligners is typically worn for one or two weeks before switching to the next set.

See How Invisalign Differs From Traditional Braces

This video breaks down the main differences between Invisalign and metal braces. If you have questions about your treatment options, our team in Scottsdale is happy to speak with you. Feel free to contact us at any time.

What Common 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? Determining Your Candidacy for Invisalign

During your initial consultation, we can discuss what Invisalign can do for you and show you before-and-after photos of real patients. We'll also discuss your concerns, smile goals, and health history. Aligner therapy may be right for you if you have:

Good Oral Health

Before straightening your teeth, we must ensure that you do not have extensive tooth decay, gum disease, or other serious problems. We can treat these issues at our office.

Mild to Moderate Misalignment

While clear aligners can correct the majority of orthodontic problems, complex cases may require traditional orthodontics. We can put you in touch with an orthodontist in the Scottsdale area.

A Commitment to Treatment

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

Ready for a Straighter Smile?

Invisalign can transform your teeth without the drawbacks of braces. The sooner you start your treatment, the sooner you can have a gorgeous new smile to share with those around you. Call (480) 419-9595 or write to our Scottsdale team to request your consultation today. 

Keeping Your Invisalign Treatment Affordable

Many insurance plans cover Invisalign the same way they would cover braces. Our Scottsdale team will work directly with your provider to seek maximum benefits on your behalf.

If you need help with any out-of-pocket costs, we accept CareCredit®, which is a third-party financing option that allows you to pay for your treatment in monthly installments with little or no interest. 

The Typical 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 few as 12 months.
Treatment can often be completed in as few 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 have you try on 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 on to the next aligner set.

Retention

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