For nearly two decades, Invisalign braces have been transforming the way people experience orthodontic treatment. At Dental Design Studio, our Tempe Invisalign providers have over a decade of using the clear aligners to help our patients enjoy straighter, healthier teeth.
What Exactly is Tempe Invisalign All About?
Invisalign is a type of clear orthodontic aligners that are worn instead of traditional brackets and wires. Each set of trays is worn for about two weeks (taking them out only during meals, brushing, and flossing) and then changes out with the next set of aligners. Using mild pressure and computer generated modifications in the trays, your teeth systematically move into a more desirable position.
With this type of orthodontic treatment, Tempe families can enjoy:
- All of their orthodontic treatment right here in our family practice, so there’s no need to drive all over town seeing multiple specialists.
- Freedom to eat or drink whatever you want, because there are no brackets to break.
- Easier home care when it comes to brushing and flossing. Just remove your aligners and clean your teeth as normal!
- The ability to straighten your teeth without other people knowing you’re in braces.

It’s Not Just About Straighter Teeth
While most people correlate getting braces with dental aesthetics and cosmetic dentistry, that’s not the only reason why Dental Design Studio offers such a service. In truth, there are many conditions that are linked with the misalignment of the teeth and jaws.
- Crooked teeth are more likely to develop areas of gum disease around them, because of how difficult the areas are to clean. Invisalign could be a part of your comprehensive periodontics care plan.
- Clenching and grinding is common when your teeth don’t fit together properly. This can lead to headaches, TMJ disorder, or even chipped teeth. Instead of planning on needing restorative dentistry treatments, why not avoid them from happening in the first place?
- Missing teeth can lead to shifting of other teeth throughout the mouth, making it difficult to place a dental implant or bridge. Invisalign allows us to open the area back up again, so that you can have the appropriate type of restoration placed.
Are Tempe Invisalign Braces Right for Me?
Selecting our Tempe Invisalign braces as your treatment of choice will depend on a few different factors. For one, it’s important that your teeth are generally healthy and free of gum disease. Certain types of bites may be more challenging to address and correct, so it’s important that you see one of our Invisalign dentists to see if you’re a candidate, first.
If you’re considering Tempe Invisalign, all that’s necessary is a simple consultation and maybe a set of x-rays. After assessing your teeth and discussing what your goals and concerns are, we can provide you with an estimate as to how long the treatment will take.
The Tempe Invisalign Treatment Experience — What to Expect
After your initial consultation, our Tempe Invisalign providers will need to take a set of impressions of your teeth. These allow Invisalign to create virtual 3D models of your mouth, so that computerized tooth movement can be planned out appropriately.
About two weeks later, you’ll be able to start your treatment. We’ll send a few sets of aligners home with you at a time. Wear each set for two weeks, and then replace it with the next. Be sure to keep your aligners in your mouth for a minimum of 20 hours per day. This gives you more than enough time to remove them for brushing, flossing, or at meals.
Every six to eight weeks or so, our Tempe Invisalign dentists will see you for a quick checkup to ensure that things are moving along as they should. As long as no modifications need to be made to your plan, we will send the next sets of aligners home with you. After about 12-18 months, most people have completed their Invisalign treatment!
Ask About Tempe Invisalign Teen Options
Now teens can enjoy the same clear Tempe Invisalign braces that their parents do. Invisalign Teen is a modified line of Invisalign orthodontics that includes built-in wear indicators and a limited number of replacement aligners (for those times when one accidentally gets lost at school or summer camp.)
Because so many teens struggle with cleaning around conventional braces, Tempe Invisalign Teen treatments make it easier to enjoy healthy, clean teeth throughout the entire process. Plus, the aligners are completely clear, so there’s no risk of being called “metal mouth” at school.
