Invisalign in Phoenix and Arcadia, AZ
Looking for Affordable Invisalign Dentists in Phoenix or Arcadia, Arizona?
More than ever, people in Phoenix are concerned about their oral health and the image they are presenting. And they are looking for a solution. To many, traditional braces feel like an uncomfortable return to the teenage years – especially for those who work regularly with clients or customers.
Agave Dental is pleased to offer the Invisalign “invisible braces” system for our patients who want to improve both their health and their appearance but would prefer to avoid traditional bracket-and-wire braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment system that uses clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth and bring your bite into alignment. The aligners slip easily and comfortably right over the top of your teeth and are practically invisible – even from up close.
Invisalign clear teeth aligners are made from SmartTrack material that has been specially engineered to apply gentle, constant force and improve control of tooth movements to straighten teeth more predictably.
Invisalign is used to treat a variety of dental conditions and concerns such as overbite, underbite, crossbite, gap teeth open bite, crowded teeth and general teeth straightening. It is also an option for both adults and teens.
To learn more about Invisalign, watch how these clear aligners changed Helen’s life in the video below. Helen is a young student in Phoenix who now has a straighter and more confident smile, without having had the inconvenience of bulky metal braces. These clear Invisalign aligners were so comfortable, that she often forgot she was wearing them.
How does Invisalign work?
If Invisalign sounds like something that might be right for you, all you have to do is call our Phoenix dental office and schedule a consultation appointment. Your dentist will discuss your options and provide a recommendation. If you both agree that Invisalign is a good option, your dentist will create your unique treatment program.
First, we’ll take measurements and 3D digital scans of your teeth to send to the lab that will be creating your custom aligners. When your aligners arrive, your dentist will make sure they fit properly, answer any questions you may have and let you know what to expect.
Your aligners are worn throughout the day and night and gently move your teeth into the correct places. Each aligner is worn for a prescribed period of time and is then exchanged for the next aligner as directed by your Agave Dental dentist during routine checkups. Invisalign aligners are virtually transparent and easy to take out, so you can keep brushing and eating as you normally would.
Why do patients in Phoenix and Arcadia love Invisalign?
The beauty of Invisalign is that the technology is strong enough to straighten teeth, discrete enough that most people won’t notice, and comfortable enough to let you live your life normally.
This sophisticated system has many benefits over traditional braces, including:
- No dietary restrictions – You remove Invisalign to eat so there are no worries about apples or corn on the cob bending or breaking a wire.
- No wire tightening – At each stage, you simply move on to the next aligner in your prescribed series.
- No broken wires – With appropriate care, Invisalign aligners are very durable.
- No discomfort – Invisalign is customized to easily fit your teeth.
- No embarrassment – Invisalign is constructed of clear plastic to be as subtle and invisible as possible. Since Invisalign is removable, you always have the option to not wear it to a special event.
- Highly effective – Invisalign gets the job done.
- Appropriate for different ages – At Agave Dental, our dentists are also certified providers of Invisalign Teen, a stellar option for our teen-aged patients who are worried about the hassles of traditional braces.
How long does Invisalign take?
Because Invisalign treatments are customized to each patient, the amount of time to complete treatment will vary depending on your dental concerns and the complexity of your case. Wearing your Invisalign tray as directed by your Agave Dental dentist will help keep your teeth on track, reducing the overall time required for treatment. You could complete your treatment in as little as 6 months, however, treatment can take 12-24 months.
Is Invisalign treatment painful?
Invisalign treatment moves your teeth by applying gentle, constant force, but some people might experience temporary discomfort for the first few days of wearing a new set of aligners. This is a sign your Invisalign clear aligners are working correctly to transform your smile. If you have any concerns or experience continued discomfort, please contact your Agave Dental dentist.

How to Take Care of Your Invisalign
Invisalign treatment is designed to not interrupt your everyday life, so caring for your aligners is very easy and convenient.
You can easily remove your Invisalign aligners for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. If you choose, you can take them off for special occasions or while playing sports and instruments. We suggest wearing your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day to get the best results.
To clean your aligners, brush and rinse them in lukewarm water and use a cleaning solution recommended by your dentist. It’s important that you brush your teeth after each meal before re-inserting your aligners to maintain good oral hygiene.
Because Invisalign clear aligners are removable, there are no food restrictions. With traditional braces, there’s a long list of foods you can’t enjoy, such as gum or popcorn, because they can damage or get stuck in your braces. We do discourage smoking while wearing your aligners because it can stain them.
For anyone who has completed orthodontic treatment, whether with braces or Invisalign treatment, it’s highly recommended to use a retainer to prevent teeth from gradually shifting back toward their initial position. Your Agave Dental dentist will discuss your post-treatment care options.
What are my Invisalign alternatives?
The most common alternative to Invisalign is traditional braces. There is also the option of Lingual braces, which also have the same components as conventional braces, but they’re fixed to the back of your teeth or the lingual side of your teeth.
Many patients choose Invisalign over other options for teeth straightening due to its ease, convenience, comfort and not being very noticeable. But depending on your dental condition and the budget you’re working with, some teeth alignment options may be better for your situation.
