At our orthodontic practice, Las Cruces Orthodontics, our top-notch orthodontist is Dr. Keith Coombs. Dr. Coombs has been a preferred Invisalign provider since 2015. Invisalign is an exciting new way to treat orthodontic problems without having to wear traditional metal braces. Patients enjoy using it because the treatment is very discreet. The Invisalign tooth straightening system is actually a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn sequentially for two weeks each. These aligners are virtually invisible when they are being worn. This allows our patients to attend work and social situations in total confidence because they are not embarrassed by the fact that they are wearing metal braces. In fact, no one is even able to detect that they are having any orthodontic treatment done at all.
There are also many treatment benefits. To begin with, treatment time with Invisalign takes about the same time as treatment with traditional metal braces. Our patients enjoy the fact that they are able to eat just about anything they want during the complete treatment time. This is because the Invisalign clear aligners are worn all day except they are removed for eating and for dental hygiene. This means that our patients can eat virtually anything during treatment without having to worry that they will hurt the aligners or have food stuck in their teeth that cannot be easily removed. The aligners are also removed for daily tooth brushing and flossing so when you finish treatment your teeth will be as bright and as beautiful as the day you started. The Invisalign aligners are perfectly comfortable to wear except you may feel a slight pressure for a few days when you switch to a new aligner – every two weeks. This will help you realize that your teeth are slowly being moved into their new proper positions.
