Mountain View Dental


Invisalign in

Alamogordo, NM

A crooked, gapped, or misaligned smile can affect your self-confidence and lead to improper chewing, increased risk of tooth decay, and joint aggravation. Although traditional braces are an effective and time-tested solution for misaligned teeth, many patients prefer Invisalign® treatment due to its comfort, convenience, and discreet treatment. Our orthodontist has been with Mountain View Dental for three years and has helped many patients in and around Alamogordo, NM, achieve healthier, more beautiful smiles with Invisalign.

Who Qualifies for Invisalign?

Invisalign may be recommended for mild to moderate cases of misalignment in both teens and adults. Invisalign can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth. In fact, this solution can treat many of the same issues traditionally addressed with braces. However, traditional braces may be a more effective treatment option for patients who have severely rotated teeth or large gaps.

In order to work efficiently and effectively, your aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours each day. If you think you may have trouble keeping track of your aligners, traditional braces may be a better option for you.

If our orthodontist determines that you are a better candidate for traditional braces, we have ceramic and tooth-colored bracket options to help you achieve your goals in a more discreet way.

How Does It Work?

During your initial consultation, our orthodontist will evaluate the condition of your smile and determine whether Invisalign is right for you. If you are a candidate, impressions of your smile will be sent to the Invisalign lab, where your custom aligners will be created and sent back to our office.

Patients typically receive 10 to 15 aligners at once. About every two weeks, you will transition into a new set of aligners. You will need to visit our office for check-ups about every six weeks, which is less frequent than appointments required for traditional braces. Most patients can achieve their desired results in approximately 12 to 18 months. In general, the treatment timeline is the same as braces.
