Invisalign

Many individuals desire straighter teeth but do not want to wear conventional metal braces.

Invisalign® uses clear, removable trays to move the teeth into their correct positions, offering patients a more discreet treatment option.

Dr. Steven K. Rubisch offers Invisalign clear aligners at Avenue B Dental Group in Yuma, AZ.

Invisalign Treatment Timeline

Initial Appointment

To find out if aligners can address your orthodontic issues, you must make an appointment at our Yuma practice. During this visit, your dentist performs a full assessment of your teeth, gums, and jaw joints to determine if clear aligners are the right choice for you.

Impressions

Next, we must obtain impressions of your teeth and bite. Generally, this step is done using digital impressions. Your dentist uses a handheld wand to capture images of your teeth, gums, and other oral tissues.

Fabrication of Aligner Trays

The images are then sent to a certified dental lab, where a trained technician creates your aligners based on Dr. Rubisch's recommendations. The number of aligner trays necessary will depend on your unique orthodontic needs and the severity of your misalignment.

Fitting Your Aligners

Once your aligners are crafted, we will schedule you for another visit to our Yuma office. Dr. Rubisch will have you try on your first set of clear aligners to ensure they fit properly. Our team will also tell you what to expect and offer tips for successful treatment.

Active Treatment

To be effective, your new aligners must be worn at least 22 hours every day. They should only be removed to brush, floss, or eat. On average, individuals wear each set of trays for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next set in the serie.

Retention

You must wear a retainer to maintain results. The total length of the Invisalign timeline will be different for everyone. However, most individuals can straighten their teeth and align their bite in about the same amount of time as traditional braces.

Why Choose Us for Invisalign?

If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile, Invisalign could be a solution for you. Many of our Yuma patients prefer aligners over braces. We believe that individuals should be involved in their treatment every step of the way. For this reason, our team will always communicate openly and transparently.

I’ve been a patient at Avenue B Dental Group for almost ten years. My teeth problems are very unique and Dr. Rubisch and his staff have helped make my youth and now teenage years as close to normal as possible. And when any mishaps with my appliance occurred we were able to call Dr. Rubisch and he fixed the problem right away. Even if he had to maybe stay late. I owe all my thanks to the Avenue B Dental Group!!
