Oftentimes, children and adults do not feel comfortable wearing traditional braces to straighten their teeth. Now patients can achieve the results they desire by using an alternative called Invisalign. Invisalign utilizes clear aligner trays vs. traditional metal brackets to straighten teeth. The Invisalign system allows Greg G. Pitts DDS to provide patients a beautiful smile without the metal brackets at his American Fork, Utah practice.

With Invisalign, patients have a nearly invisible method of straightening teeth with custom aligner trays instead of brackets and wires. These trays are made of clear, smooth, comfortable plastic that is practically undetectable when patients are wearing them. They can be removed for brushing, flossing, eating, and drinking. 

Who should get Invisalign?

The Invisalign treatment is an effective and proven alternative to conventional orthodontics, offering patients straighter smiles without brackets and wires. This makes it an appropriate treatment for anyone that has misaligned, crowded, or crooked teeth that does not want brackets and wires.

How does Invisalign work?

This system uses computer imaging technology to predict tooth movement. Using a series of custom created aligners that are made specifically for a patient, the teeth are repositioned over several months with progression through the tray series. 

New aligner trays are given as you progress through the treatment during appointments that take about 20 minutes every 8-12 weeks. Unlike traditional metal braces, which use brackets and wires that can irritate the mouth, restrict the foods you eat and make regular dental hygiene difficult. Invisalign with Greg G. Pitts DDS relies on a series of comfortable, smooth aligners that gently and gradually straighten the teeth.
