Invisalign in Gallup - Orthodontics, Inc.

Invisalign offers a clear, comfortable alternative to traditional braces, perfect for those seeking to straighten their teeth discreetly. At Orthodontics, Inc. in Gallup, NM, we provide expert Invisalign treatment tailored to meet your personal dental goals and lifestyle.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign transforms smiles with a design that merges efficiency with subtlety. These clear aligners offer a barely noticeable treatment compared to traditional braces, allowing adults and teens to improve their dental alignment without the typical metallic look. Invisalign aligners are not only invisible but also removable, making daily activities like eating and oral hygiene more manageable.

They fit snugly over your teeth, gently and gradually moving them into alignment with each new set of aligners. This innovative approach eliminates the need for wires and brackets, offering a comfortable fit and a nearly invisible orthodontic treatment.


The Invisalign Treatment Process

Embarking on the Invisalign journey at Orthodontics, Inc. involves a structured and clear path to achieving your ideal smile. Here’s what the process entails:

Initial Consultation

Your treatment begins with a consultation at our offices in Gallup. During this session, we assess your dental alignment and discuss whether Invisalign is suitable for you.

Digital Imaging

If you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, we use advanced 3D imaging technology to take a precise digital scan of your teeth. This scan is crucial for creating a detailed treatment plan.

Custom Treatment Plan

Based on the 3D images, we design a customized treatment plan that outlines how your teeth will move into their final positions. This plan allows you to see the expected outcome before you even start wearing your aligners.

Receiving Your Aligners

Once your custom aligners are ready, you’ll receive them with detailed instructions on how often to wear them. Typically, each set is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next in the series.

Regular Check-Ups

Throughout your treatment, you’ll have check-ups approximately every six weeks to monitor progress and ensure the aligners are fitting well and working effectively.

Final Aligner and Completion

After you’ve progressed through all your aligners, your final aligner will signify the end of the main treatment phase. This step is crucial for ensuring that your teeth have moved to their desired positions.

Post-Treatment Care

To maintain your new smile, you may need to wear a retainer as directed by our orthodontists. This ensures that your teeth stay in their new positions.
This structured approach ensures a smooth and predictable journey to achieving a straighter smile with minimal disruption to your daily life.

Living with Invisalign

Adopting Invisalign aligners into your daily routine comes with significant benefits and requires some simple maintenance to ensure their effectiveness. The design of these aligners offers a seamless fit into your lifestyle, allowing you to enjoy meals and maintain dental hygiene with ease. Here’s how to care for and enjoy the lifestyle benefits of Invisalign:

Maintaining Your Aligners

Always remove your aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water to avoid staining them. Clean your aligners regularly using a soft toothbrush and cool water—avoid hot water as it can warp the plastic. For a deeper clean, use Invisalign cleaning crystals or a gentle denture cleaner.

Daily Routine with Invisalign

Since the aligners are removable, you can continue eating all your favorite foods without worry. Brush and floss your teeth after each meal before reinserting the aligners to maintain optimal oral hygiene. Additionally, wearing your aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours per day ensures you get the maximum benefit from your treatment.

What to Expect from Your Results

Invisalign treatment at Orthodontics, Inc. consistently delivers remarkable improvements in dental alignment, contributing to both aesthetic appeal and overall dental health. Here’s what you can expect from your Invisalign journey:

Visible Improvement

As you progress through each set of aligners, you’ll notice gradual movement of your teeth towards their desired positions. This movement is both gentle and effective, leading to a significant improvement in alignment by the end of your treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners to gradually move your teeth into the desired position. These aligners are virtually invisible and removable, offering a discreet and convenient alternative to traditional metal braces.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case and how often the aligners are worn. On average, treatment can last anywhere from 12 to 18 months, but some patients may see results in as few as six months.
Is Invisalign as effective as traditional braces?
Yes, Invisalign can be just as effective as traditional braces for most common teeth-straightening issues. However, the effectiveness largely depends on the wearer consistently using the aligners as directed—typically 20 to 22 hours per day.
Can I remove my aligners?
Yes, one of the biggest advantages of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. You can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss, which helps maintain good oral hygiene throughout your treatment. However, to ensure the treatment is effective, you must wear your aligners for the recommended 20 to 22 hours per day.
