Invisalign® Clear Aligners

At McKinney Dental, we are proud to offer Invisalign® clear aligners as a discreet and convenient orthodontic treatment option for patients looking to achieve a straighter smile. Dr. Mary Zoe Collier DDS and our experienced team are committed to providing personalized care and effective orthodontic solutions to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth and correct bite alignment issues. Unlike traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires, Invisalign aligners are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic and are virtually invisible when worn, making them a popular choice for adults and teens seeking a discreet orthodontic option.

How Does Invisalign Work?

1.  Initial Consultation: During your initial consultation, Dr. Collier will evaluate your smile, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if Invisalign is the right option for you.
2.  Custom Treatment Plan: Using advanced 3D imaging technology, Dr. Collier will create a custom treatment plan that maps out the movements of your teeth and determines the exact sequence of aligners needed to achieve your desired results.
3.  Custom Aligners: Based on your treatment plan, a series of custom-made aligners will be fabricated specifically for your smile. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before being replaced with the next set in the series.
4.  Wear and Care: Aligners should be worn for 20-22 hours per day, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Regular check-up appointments with Dr. Collier will monitor your progress and ensure that your treatment is on track.
5.  Progressive Results: As you progress through the series of aligners, you will begin to see gradual improvements in the alignment and appearance of your smile. Treatment time varies depending on the complexity of your case, but most patients achieve their desired results within 12-18 months.

Benefits of Invisalign:

•   Discreet: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn, allowing you to straighten your smile discreetly without drawing attention to your orthodontic treatment.
•   Comfortable: Made from smooth, comfortable plastic, Invisalign aligners are gentle on the gums and soft tissues of the mouth, minimizing irritation and discomfort.
•   Removable: Unlike traditional braces, which are permanently attached to the teeth, Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, drink, and clean your teeth with ease.
•   Effective: Invisalign can effectively correct a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, and crossbites, helping you achieve a healthier and more beautiful smile.
