Invisalign

Dr. Jeff Yelle is pleased to be an Invisalign Provider. Invisalign is an attractive alternative to braces made from metal brackets and wires that allow you to straighten your teeth by wearing clear plastic aligners instead. Just like traditional braces, Invisalign retainers put pressure on your teeth to slowly move them into the desired position.

How Invisalign Works

The term Invisalign is a trademarked name for a set of clear and removable retainers customized for you by your Monument dental team, Distinctive Dental (formerly David J. Jones DDS). In your consultation, you will learn all about this procedure, including viewing a time-lapse computer program of what your smile might look like when you’re done with treatment. After discussing your smile goals, Dr. Yelle provides our dental laboratory with dental X-rays and an impression of your teeth. They create a series of aligner trays that you replace with a new one approximately once every 14 days. In each set of retainers, you will receive one retainer for each row of your teeth that will be customized to fit your mouth perfectly.

Benefits of Invisalign Compared to Traditional Braces

You must follow several food restrictions when you wear metal braces, but this isn’t the case with Invisalign, because you can remove your aligner to eat. This also makes it much easier to brush and floss your teeth. For the best and fastest results, we recommend wearing your Invisalign trays all day and night, except when you’re eating or cleaning them. Since it isn’t necessary for Dr. Yelle to tighten or adjust any wires on your retainers, you will only need to come in for check-ups approximately every six weeks, compared to monthly with traditional braces.

Invisalign Treatment Expectations

Each time you replace an aligner, the new device puts a slight amount of increased pressure on your teeth. The goal is for all teeth to move into position within the timeframe needed for your custom treatment plan. Most of our patients wear between 18-30 removable retainers, and the average treatment time is 9-15 months.
