The Clear Alternative to Orthodontics

Most people have heard about the benefits of Invisalign clear braces. But did you know that you can get them easily and conveniently right here at our Reno dental office? That’s right! No need to make an appointment with an orthodontist or worry about fitting extra dental visits into your busy schedule. Just keep up with your regular dental care while uncovering your straightest, healthiest, most beautiful smile!

The Invisible Way to Straighten Your Teeth

Braces may be cute on kids (though we have noticed that most kids don’t necessarily think so!), but for young adults and professionals, a mouthful of metal can seriously cramp your style. Plus, they are time-consuming and costly – and who wants that when life is so busy? Your Reno dental team at Wager Evans Dental understands. That’s why we have undergone the training necessary to offer our patients a time saving and attractive alternative – Invisalign invisible braces. Instead of the old-fashioned method of wires and brackets, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners so your teeth move to their ideal position faster, more economically, and without the metal-mouth look of other orthodontics.

Could I Benefit from Invisalign Orthodontics?

Crooked teeth aren’t the only teeth that need adjustment. Other situations call for orthodontics too! Here are some examples:

  • Underbite (when the bottom teeth extend past the top teeth)
  • Overbite (when the top teeth extend over the bottom teeth)
  • Crossbite (when the upper and lower teeth do not align correctly)
  • Open bite (when the top and bottom teeth don’t meet)
  • Gaps between Teeth
  • Crowded teeth

Any of these conditions can cause more than self-consciousness or embarrassment. Crooked, crowded, misaligned teeth can also lead to all kinds of trouble and discomfort including an increased risk for:

  • TMJ disorder
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Tooth breakage
  • Discomfort or difficulty chewing

How Does Invisalign Work?

Instead of working through the tightening of a wire on your teeth, our Reno Invisalign orthodontics works through a series of aligners. These clear, virtually invisible aligners are worn over a period of months to gradually straighten and correct your teeth. Because they aren’t attached to your teeth, you are able to take your Invisalign aligners out to:

  • Eat as usual
  • Brush and floss
  • For special occasions
  • Play an instrument, sing, or make a public appearance

After your consultation appointment with Dr. Evans, we will create your very own, personalized Invisalign treatment plan. We start by taking 3D images of your teeth using our iTero intraoral scanning system. Next, several sets of aligners will be created for your teeth to be worn consecutively over the next few months. As your teeth move into place, we’ll swap your old aligner for a new one until your teeth are in their ideal position, your orthodontic issue is solved, and your smile looks just the way you always dreamed it would.

I’ve been going to Wager Evans Dental for years now and have only great things to say about Dr. Evans and all the wonderful people who work there. They always clearly explain what to expect and why we’re doing it. Not only do they provide dental services but also education and tools for home at the same time. My dental health has improved as a result. Thanks so much to everyone at Wager Evans Dental!
