Invisalign Clear Aligners
While many people dread wearing metal braces, many patients are excited about the prospect of wearing Invisalign invisible braces. It is a popular orthodontic treatment that dentists believe can help a significant portion of patients who have relatively minor orthodontic problems. It is a treatment that’s available at Dental Arts Center in Northeast Colorado Springs, CO.
The Invisalign Way
Almost everyone wants a perfect, straight and beautiful smile. In fact, A Kelton Global survey discovered that the most positive first impressions occur due to an
attractive set of teeth. With Invisalign, crooked or misaligned teeth are straightened using clear plastic trays instead of metal devices. Invisible aligners are as effective as braces in repositioning the teeth to improve the appearance of your smile.
How Does Invisalign Help?
Invisalign aligner trays are designed to gently force your teeth to conform to their shape over a specific period of time—usually six to 12 months. Once the first tray does its job, it’s time to wear the next one—this process continues every two weeks or so. After Dr. Golomb, your Colorado Springs dentist, confirms that the treatment is complete, you’ll use the final aligner tray as your retainer every night while sleeping.
Why Do People Prefer Invisalign
There are a few key reasons why dental patients specifically ask for Invisalign over metal or ceramic braces. Explore whether these reasons apply to your unique case:
- They are working professionals who are required to speak often at business meetings and conferences (the trays can be removed at will)
- They want to be able to enjoy their favorite foods that aren’t easy to eat when wearing permanent braces (like corn on the cob)
- They don’t want to experience the discomfort that is common in the early stages of wearing metal braces
- The treatment period for Invisalign is usually shorter compared to traditional braces
Put Your Smile First
Many people put off orthodontic treatment because they don’t think it’s a priority. But countless smile surveys have confirmed the importance of a straight, beautiful smile in your professional and social life.

Upon initial exam, your dentist decides if Invisalign is right for you. An impression is made of your teeth, and submitted to Invisalign. Dr. Golomb's instructions are translated into a series of precisely customized aligners, using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology. You then wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth gradually. Length of treatment and number of visits is similar to that with braces.
