If you have cosmetic issues with your teeth you may hide your smile from the world; embarrassed to show your teeth when interacting with others in social situations. The long-standing solution to fix alignment and bite issues was often metal braces that would hurt, make it difficult to eat, and look unappealing. Thankfully, however, there is a solution for those who want the benefits of teeth straightening without the unsightly metal in your mouth.

At Bromley Park Dental, we’re happy to provide our patients with the option of Invisalign® Clear Aligners that help improve your teeth without the need for metal braces. These clear braces are not only more comfortable but they’re customized to your mouth to ensure that they’re providing you with optimal results. Invisalign® can help a number of structural and cosmetic issues with your teeth, including:

  • Overbite and underbite
  • Crossbite and openbite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps in teeth

The traditional metal braces of old are, for many, a nuisance in how they feel and look. Beyond that, the process often takes years to complete, with uncomfortable adjustment office visits throughout. That’s why so many people have turned to Invisalign® for their teeth-straightening needs. Because the aligner trays are smooth they do not hurt your teeth and gums while you wear them or during the adjustment process.

Another one of the biggest benefits of Invisalign® is that they’re removable. When using Invisalign® patients do need to wear them upward of 22 hours a day but they can be taken out any time, which makes eating a whole lot easier than if you had metal braces.

The most important thing to consider before choosing Invisalign® is to determine if you’re a candidate. When you come to Bromley Park Dental, one of our highly-trained dentists will establish your candidacy for this procedure to make sure this is the safest and most effective treatment for your needs. While most teens and adults can undergo this treatment there are some things to keep in mind, including:

  • You should have healthy teeth and gums
  • You should be prepared to wear them at least 20-22 hours a day
  • You should be prepared to wear them for 10-12 months, possibly longer depending on the severity of your condition
  • You should be able to visit our office every 4-6 weeks for adjustments and checkups
  • You should be a nonsmoker or be willing to quit before treatment

For those who have severe bite problems, our dentists may recommend a different treatment. Invisalign® can work wonders for the average bite and straightening issues but orthodontic or restoration treatment may be needed for those who have issues beyond what Invisalign® can fix.

If you have bite issues or want to straighten your teeth and want to learn if you’re a candidate for Invisalign®, please contact us by filling out the form on this page or by calling us at 303-558-5870 to schedule your consultation. We proudly provide dental services to those who live in and near Brighton, Thornton, Commerce City, and Ft. Lupton, Colorado.
