About Invisalign®

For Patients of All Ages in Cincinnati & Mack, OH

At Martinez Orthodontics, we’re proud to provide children, teens and adults living in Cincinnati, Mack and Bridgetown, OH with exceptional orthodontic treatment. We offer a variety of braces, Invisalign, and more to ensure that your treatment aligns perfectly with your lifestyle. Dr. Martinez will work with you to develop a personalized plan, and for many of our patients, Invisalign fits the bill. The clear aligners are great for teens and adults, who want to straighten their teeth in a discreet and effective way.

Invisalign Treatment for Teens & Adults 

Invisalign uses no metal wires or brackets whatsoever. Instead, a series of clear, customized, removable aligner trays are worn over the teeth to gradually and gently move teeth into the optimal position carefully planned out by your orthodontist.  

Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

After completing a thorough examination, complete with x-rays, Dr. Martinez will decide if Invisalign is right for you. Then, we’ll take models of your teeth and precise treatment instructions to Align Technologies, the makers of Invisalign, so that a series of aligners can be made just for you. Depending upon your specific needs, as few as 12 finely calibrated aligners will be made, or as many as 48 may be needed. 

Once your aligners have arrived at our office, we will then ask you to come back for another visit with us so we can give you the aligners and instructions for wearing them. Each aligner is designed to be worn for about 2 weeks before going on to the next aligner in the series and so on. As you replace one aligner with the next, your teeth will move gradually, step-by-step until your they are properly aligned.

What It’s Like to Wear Invisalign

When you’re wearing Invisalign, most people won’t even notice you have the aligners in. This means you’ll enjoy the virtually invisible treatment for the entire time you’re straightening your teeth, without anyone noticing! The fact that Invisalign is very discreet is one reason why so many adults prefer this treatment option. However, like every orthodontic appliance, it does take some getting used to. Initial discomfort is a possibility, but you’ll soon adjust to your aligners.

A Convenient Way to Get an Amazing Smile 

Patients wearing Invisalign truly appreciate not having any food restrictions to worry about as they simply take the aligners out when eating. You can even take your aligners out for special events like school or family photos as long as you put them back in right away when done. The most important element of Invisalign, like other treatments, is maintaining excellent oral hygiene. Be sure to thoroughly brush and floss your teeth before placing your aligners back in your mouth.
