What is Invisalign?

Aday & Coombs Orthodontic Specialists provide Invisalign as an option for our patients who chose not to do traditional braces.

Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances. “Invisible” aligners are used in this process which makes straightening your teeth unnoticeable to almost anybody.

Using clear trays instead of braces, the Invisalign system moves your teeth in a more comfortable and less noticeable way than traditional braces.

Due to the intensive training and experience that we have at Aday & Coombs Orthodontic Specialists, we can treat even severe conditions with the system if that is your goal.

This alternative treatment is based on 100-year-old orthodontic practices and 20 years of clinical research. According to research, some patients experiences up to 50% faster treatment time compared to traditional braces.

If some offices have said you are not a candidate for Invisalign, you will likely be in our office.

Invisalign Teen

We are also currently the leading provider of Invisalign Teen in Las Cruces for those under the age of 20.

If your child wants straight teeth but does not want braces, or if you are concerned with brushing/flossing habits that may cause white spot lesions with traditional braces, the Invisalign system may be the best option.

We perform free consultations for braces and Invisalign.

Invisalign FAQ

Does Invisalign work for kids?2017-02-22T16:26:01-07:00

Yes, if their teeth, including second molars, have grown in completely.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?2017-02-22T16:25:43-07:00

Treatment time varies depending on the severity of the misaligned teeth. Treatment time can be shorter than traditional braces, between six and 18 months.

What happens after my treatment is complete? Do I need retainers?2017-02-22T16:25:14-07:00

All orthodontic patients are instructed to wear their retainers at night indefinitely. Sleeping with your retainers in at night will ensure a healthy bite and maintain the new position of your teeth.

How often do I see an orthodontist while wearing Invisalign®?2017-02-22T16:24:55-07:00

Regular office visits are every five to six weeks. This will ensure that your Invisalign treatment is progressing as planned.

How do I keep my aligners clean?2017-02-22T16:24:27-07:00

Brushing them with toothpaste will keep them fresh and clean.

Can I smoke with the aligners in?2017-02-22T16:24:08-07:00

We discourage smoking with aligners as the cigarette smoke will tend to discolor them.

Can I chew gum?2017-02-22T16:23:35-07:00

It is recommended that you remove your aligners prior to chewing gum as the gum will stick to the aligners.

Is there any discomfort with Invisalign® treatment?2017-02-22T16:23:09-07:00

There will be some pressure and minor discomfort for a day or two after each initial insertion. This is a sign that your teeth are moving sequentially into their final position.

Will wearing the aligners affect my speech?2017-02-22T16:22:42-07:00

Like any orthodontic treatment, there is a short adjustment period. The more you speak with the aligners on, the quicker you will adjust.

Are there any restrictions to what I can eat while in treatment?2017-02-22T16:32:24-07:00

No. Unlike braces, you may eat whatever you like as long as you remove the aligners before eating. Prior to placing the aligners back on, it is important to brush your teeth and the aligners after you eat.

How Often Must I Wear My Aligners?2017-02-22T16:21:48-07:00

You must wear your aligners for up to 22 hours daily. You may remove them for eating, drinking and regular oral hygiene.
