Invisalign clear aligners

Deciding you’re ready to transform your smile is an exciting step. But finding an orthodontic treatment option that fits your lifestyle can seem overwhelming. At Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics, we try to make this choice simple for you by offering Invisalign clear aligners, the clear alternative to braces that lets you see your smile as it transforms.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic method which straightens teeth without the use of braces. It combines powerful technology with your orthodontist’s expertise to shape your new smile using sets of clear aligners. After capturing a digital scan of your teeth, your aligners are custom-made from clear medical-grade plastic to help move your teeth into position.

At Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics, we have been recognized for our expertise in providing exceptional results for our patients using Invisalign. Doctors Mattingly, Howell & Oliver are Invisalign top 1% providers and are highly experienced in this treatment method.

How does it work?

With Invisalign, you’ll wear each set of aligners for one to two weeks, keeping them on for at least 20-22 hours per day. The only time you’ll remove them is to eat, drink, brush and floss, allowing you to keep going about your day with ease. As you replace each set of aligners with the next in the series, you may feel a little pressure, which is totally normal and means your teeth are shifting into position little by little, week by week.

Total treatment time varies for everyone, but it typically averages 9-15 months. The average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but can vary from case to case.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign has significant benefits for our patients. These include:

  • Discreet treatment – the aligners are virtually invisible so no one will be able to tell you’re wearing them.
  • Removable – Because the aligners are removable, you can take them out to eat and drink.
  • Confidence – You can take the aligners out for important occasions such as a business meeting or a family wedding (not that you’ll need to because no one will be able to tell you’re wearing them anyway!)

Invisalign

  • Oral hygiene – Keeping your teeth clean is
    no problem with Invisalign. Simply remove the
    aligners and you can brush and floss as per normal.
  • Comfortable – Because the aligners are custom-made for your teeth, they are comfortable to wear.  The plastic won’t cause mouth abrasions during treatment either like metal braces can do.
  • Fewer appointments - No metal and wires means fewer adjustments are needed so fewer visits to see us. That’s convenience!
  • See into the future - Invisalign allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.
