Crooked or gapped teeth can cause you to hide your smile and lose confidence in your appearance.

Invisalign® can discreetly shift your teeth into proper alignment to correct minor smile imperfections and enhance your self-esteem. 

Drs. Christoper DeMille, David MacKay, and Parker DeMille offer this modern orthodontic solution at our West Valley City, UT, practice.

Invisalign treatment uses custom-made clear aligners to shift your teeth into alignment. Unlike traditional braces that use bulky wires and brackets, the smooth plastic of these aligners is virtually undetectable in your mouth. Contact our West Valley City practice to learn more about this custom treatment.

A Closer Look ​At Clear Aligners and How They Can Discreetly Straighten Your Teeth

Impressions of your teeth and bite will be taken during your first appointment at our West Valley City, UT, practice, just outside Salt Lake City. Your aligners will be customized to correct your specific misalignment issues. With their slight variations in shape, each progressive Invisalign aligner tray will exert gentle force on your teeth. Over the next 6–18 months, your teeth will gradually shift into alignment. Because the aligners are removable and clear, Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic alternative to traditional braces.

Is Invisalign Right for You?

Most patients with minor to moderate misalignment issues make good candidates for Invisalign treatment. However, there are a few factors our dentists will consider during your consultation.

Below are the characteristics of ideal Invisalign candidates.

Good Oral Health

A healthy smile is the foundation for successful treatment with Invisalign. Oral health issues like gum disease or tooth decay will need to be addressed before you can begin Invisalign.

Minor to Moderate Misalignment 

Invisalign works best for mild to moderate cases of dental misalignment. Patients with severe misalignment issues may benefit from braces or another orthodontic treatment instead.

Committed to Treatment

You must wear your clear aligners for at least 22 hours a day to enjoy the best results. Patients who want to undergo treatment with Invisalign need to be committed to maintaining this schedule. 

We Offer Invisalign Attachments for Patients With More Serious Misalignment

SmartForce® attachments are small tooth-colored additions that adhere to your teeth to help your aligners exert extra force. By providing additional pressure, SmartForce attachments can help correct misalignment issues that Invisalign alone cannot, which allows more patients to choose clear aligners over traditional braces.

In cases of severe misalignment that cannot be treated even with Invisalign attachments, we can either fit you with braces at our West Valley City practice or refer you to a trusted orthodontist while still remaining active in your treatment plan.

Subtle Methods Create Stunning Results

At our West Valley City dental practice, we can discreetly straighten your teeth using clear aligners. They provide a great alternative to braces for working professionals or those who simply want a less obvious way to achieve better dental alignment.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

Patients can expect to complete Invisalign treatment in 6–18 months. Your Invisalign time frame will depend on your degree of misalignment.
If you have crooked or crowded teeth, Invisalign can be a comfortable and convenient alternative to traditional braces. 
If you have crooked or crowded teeth, Invisalign can be a comfortable and convenient alternative to traditional braces. 

Scanning

To design comfortable and secure aligners, one of our dentists will take impressions of your teeth with a digital scanner. The resulting images are generally more accurate than standard molds, and the imaging process is much faster and more convenient. Your dentist can then manipulate the images with advanced computer software.

Creating

Through this process, our dentists can design a full series of aligner trays, each with slightly different contours. This strategy allows your clear aligners to straighten your teeth over time. The Invisalign labs will then use these designs as the technicians create your aligners from smooth, transparent plastic.

Wearing

Your Invisalign results will depend in part on your due diligence, so make sure to follow your dentist's instructions thoroughly. You should wear each aligner set for about two weeks before graduating to a new set. For optimal results, you should wear your trays for approximately 20–22 hours a day, removing them only to eat, floss, and brush. This allows a bit more flexibility than braces. You will return to our practice every six weeks for Invisalign checkups.

Tips for Invisalign Patients Keep Your Mouth and Aligners Clean

Brush and Floss Regularly

Continue to brush your teeth twice daily and floss once daily to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Clean Your Aligners Frequently

Clean your aligners every time you brush and floss your teeth. The best way to keep your aligners clean is by using a soft-bristled toothbrush and mild soap.

Avoid Extreme Temperatures

Avoid using very hot or very cold water when cleaning your Invisalign aligners. Extreme temperatures can warp the plastic and affect your treatment timeline.

Rinse Your Mouth After Eating

Aligners are worn 22 hours a day, you don't want food particles or the remnants of sugary drinks to sit on your teeth that entire time. Rinse your mouth after eating or drinking anything besides water before reinserting your aligners.

Keep Your Aligners Safe

Unlike traditional orthodontics, Invisalign trays are removable. Keep this convenience from becoming a hassle by making sure you put them in a safe place where they cannot be lost or damaged.
