San Tan Valley Invisalign®

For many teens and adults living around San Tan Valley, the thought of sporting traditional braces isn’t the most appealing.

Invisalign treatment at Peterson Family Orthodontics is made for people who want to straighten their teeth without the appearance of traditional metal braces.

Your Clear Alternative

With clear aligners from Invisalign and Peterson Family Orthodontics, you can get the straight smile you want without anyone noticing that you’re undergoing treatment—until you show off your stunning new smile, that is!

If you’re already dreading the thought of long adjustment appointments and a mouth full of metal wires, Invisalign clear aligners from Peterson Family Orthodontics may be the right choice to straighten your teeth.

Invisalign can give you a stunning smile in almost half the time of traditional braces with their personalized clear aligners. At Peterson Family Orthodontics, our Invisalign treatment process is simple and time-efficient.


Our Invisalign Process

Using advanced renderings of your mouth, Dr. Peterson creates a treatment plan that uses a series of clear, plastic trays which gradually move your teeth into the correct position. The trays are nearly invisible on your teeth. It is typically recommended the trays be worn 22 hours a day, but they can be removed for eating and brushing teeth.

Invisalign is a good option for patients who do not want the appearance of having braces and who are committed to playing a more active role in their treatment by wearing the trays as instructed. At your free initial consultation, Dr. Peterson will sit down with you and assess the current state of your teeth. We’ll also discuss your financial needs to ensure your treatment fits your budget.

If Dr. Peterson determines that Invisalign’s clear, removable aligners are the best solution to help you get the smile you want, he’ll build a custom treatment plan to best fit your situation.

Our Peterson Family Orthodontics team will take digital images and X-rays of your teeth and use these to create your treatment plan.

Dr. Peterson uses these images to precisely plan how each set of Invisalign trays will adjust your teeth to their new location. You can even see a digital projection of your final results before you start treatment.

After you get your Invisalign aligners, you should wear them as much as possible, but you can easily remove them for eating, flossing, and brushing.

You’ll come into Peterson Family Orthodontics for check-ups about every six to eight weeks to get your new sets of aligners and to let Dr. Peterson check the progress of your teeth. These checkups are fast and pain-free because you won’t have any wires to check or tighten.

Live Your Life

Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth. It uses a series of aligners custom-made for you and only you.

Wearing Invisalign’s smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible aligners will gently move your teeth into place little by little, and you won’t have any metal brackets to attach or wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners about every two weeks until your treatment is complete.

At Peterson Family Orthodontics, you can reach a great smile without a treatment that gets in the way of your daily life. In fact, most people won’t even know that you’re straightening your teeth.

This nearly invisible option to straighten your teeth is truly changing the way people see orthodontic treatment in San Tan Valley, Phoenix, and the surrounding area.

Invisalign has vastly improved over the years and can be used to handle cases ranging from simple to complex. From crowded teeth to gapped teeth, underbites to overbites, Dr. Peterson can use Invisalign to help give you a smile that you’re proud to show off.

Dr. Peterson has a lot of experience treating people with Invisalign, and we’re excited to offer this technology to our braces patients in San Tan Valley.


Ideal for Teens

Whether you’re an athlete, a musician, an actor, class president, or anything else, you’ll be able to participate in all your activities without the barrier that traditional braces might present.

And, since Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic and almost invisible, your friends probably won’t even notice that you’re wearing them.

As a teenager, you should be able to participate in the activities you’re interested in while still having the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories. You also deserve orthodontic treatment that gives you a smile you’re proud to show off for the rest of your life.

Invisalign helps you focus on doing what you do best: being yourself. At your initial consultation with Dr. Peterson, you’ll find out how Invisalign can be a good fit for your smile and your lifestyle!


Differences Between Braces & Invisalign

Most Invisalign patients at Peterson Family Orthodontics enjoy shorter check-ups, fewer appointments, easier oral hygiene, and fewer emergency visits.

However, the system's biggest pro can also be a con: the fact that you can remove your aligners. This fact means that your cooperation is essential to making sure that your treatment succeeds!

Since braces are attached to your teeth, they do the heavy lifting to keep your treatment progressing. With Invisalign, you need to do a little extra work during your treatment so your trays can complete your treatment.

You’ll need to manage your wear time, keep your aligners clean, and swap them out for the next aligner in the series.

Like with traditional metal braces, Dr. Peterson recommends wearing a retainer after your Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment and your confident new smile.
