Some people avoid straightening their teeth because they do not want to deal with uncomfortable, obvious traditional braces.
Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth using clear aligners instead of the brackets and wires of braces.
At Holley Dental Group in Prattville, AL, we provide Invisalign that can straighten teeth and improve oral function.
Why Invisalign Is Incredibly Popular
The wires, brackets, and bands of traditional braces stand out. Invisalign's aligners, on the other hand, are clear and discreet. This allows patients to straighten their teeth without broadcasting the fact that they are receiving orthodontic care.
Invisalign's aligners are removable. This makes it easy to brush and floss without the special tools or products that may be required by those with braces. Another benefit of removability is that Invisalign users can eat without dietary restriction, unlike braces patients.
The metal wires and brackets of braces can scratch and irritate the soft tissues in your mouth. They can also break, requiring emergency orthodontic care. Invisalign's clear aligners are made of smooth plastic that avoids irritation and is incredibly durable.
You Don't Need an Orthodontist for Invisalign
A major myth surrounding Invisalign is the idea that it requires visiting an orthodontist. The truth is, dentists are perfectly capable of administering Invisalign orthodontic treatment. Many prefer receiving Invisalign from their trusted dentist instead of having to see a new and unfamiliar orthodontist.
We Use Advanced Technology
3D Digital Scanner
We prioritize convenience throughout Invisalign treatment, even before your aligners are fitted. Our dentists create our impressions using a 3D digital scanner instead of the uncomfortable putty that is traditionally used.
We use a cone beam scanner to produce incredibly accurate imaging of your mouth, allowing us to plan and carry out precise care. CBCT scans can also be used to simulate and predict root and tooth movement throughout Invisalign treatment.
We offer subtle, tooth-colored SmartForce attachments that can take Invisalign's effects to the next level. While not needed by all, these attachments can be added to your aligners to achieve complex tooth movement that may not have otherwise been possible with Invisalign.

Many patients are happy to find out that insurance providers often contribute to the cost of Invisalign treatment. We have decided to take an additional step towards making orthodontics more affordable by accepting CareCredit®, which allows patients to pay for treatment in simple low- or no-interest monthly installments.
