The Clear Alternative for a Straighter Smile
Dr. Ruiz is pleased to offer Invisalign™ invisible aligners, an innovative solution that lets you gain
straight teeth in as little as 9 - 15 months! These aligners can fix overcrowding, widely spaced teeth,
overbite, underbite, or crossbite.
Invisalign utilizes modern 3-D computer-imaging technology to create your entire treatment plan from the
current position of your teeth to your final smile. From this plan, clear thermoplastic aligners are produced.
These are like teeth-whitening trays and are custom made to fit your exact teeth. After you place the first set
of aligners, they use gentle forces to shift your teeth smoothly into position. Approximately two weeks later,
you replace them with the next set of aligners, and move through treatment for about a year. You only need to
visit the office for evaluation every four to eight weeks. Exact treatment time is based on your personal needs
Invisalign Boosts Your Confidence
Comfort, convenience, and privacy are three of the most exciting advantages to the Invisalign system. The
one-piece aligners have no metal or wires to irritate your mouth, and with the added benefit of requiring
nothing that must be checked or adjusted, they free you from extra time spent sitting in the dentist’s chair.
Although you wear the aligners 24/7, they’re simple to remove for eating and cleaning. Because there are no braces
to get in the way of brushing and flossing, you can eat and drink whatever you want while in treatment. In short,
keeping your teeth clean and free of plaque is just as easy as it was before treatment.
The best part is the privacy. No one will guess you’re straightening your teeth, because the clarity of the aligners
renders them almost invisible! People would have to know the aligners or there, or look very closely, to spot them.
So you can smile with confidence, knowing all they’ll see is you looking amazing.
