Invisalign® Clear Aligner Therapy
in Ridgway, CO
Invisalign clear aligner therapy is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that is used to straighten teeth. At River Peak Dental, we are a proud provider of Invisalign because we understand how important it is for our patients to feel good about their teeth during and after the straightening process!
Invisalign offers a level of comfort that is uncommon in most orthodontic treatments. For years, the only option available for orthodontics was traditional braces with metal brackets and wires. These brackets are notorious for irritating the lips and cheeks, and they require frequent adjustments that leave the mouth sore for days at a time. Invisalign clear aligners work by using comfortable, clear retainer-like aligners that gently move the teeth into their correct positions. Throughout treatment, a series of progressive aligners shift the teeth at two-week increments. Every two weeks, patients receive a new set of aligners to move the teeth closer to their final destination.
Benefits of Invisalign
Wondering if Invisalign is the right choice for you? This orthodontic treatment offers an array of benefits of patients, including:
- • Subtle Appearance—The clear aligners are barely noticeable.
- • Removable—You can take them out to eat, brush, and floss.
- • Fewer Appointments—We provide a few sets of aligners at a time so that you don't have to come to our office very often.
- • Increased Comfort—The smooth, plastic aligner trays are gentle. They won't irritate the cheeks and gums.
- • Healthier Teeth & Gums—Since the trays are removable, you can properly clean your teeth and gums throughout your orthodontic treatment.
