Invisalign, Scottsdale, AZ

If you live in Scottsdale AZ and have been thinking about having your teeth straightened, you are not alone. At My Scottsdale Dentist we understand how important it is to always look your best, which is why Dr. Steve Poulos uses the revolutionary Invisalign system for safe teeth straightening.

What turns so many people off about getting traditional braces is the unsightly look of them. Most adults simply do not want to walk around with sharp metal in their mouths all day to fix a dental problem. But with the Invisalign system, there is no unsightly metal to get in the way of your new and improved smile.

Invisalign uses the very latest in technology to create your customized aligners. After Dr. Poulos and you decide what issues you will be correcting, the aligners will be made according to the sequence that is needed. As one set of Invisalign straightens your teeth to the maximum, the next set will be ready to be put to use to continue the efforts.

Each step in the system will be worn for approximately two weeks. You only need to remove them when eating, flossing and brushing your teeth. What is great about the system is that pain and cuts are greatly minimized due the complete lack of sharp metal that will not be present in your mouth.

Many of Dr. Poulos's patients agree that wearing Invisalign are quite comfortable to wear in addition to the fantastic results you will achieve. Before you begin treatment, you will also be able to see what the final product will look like with the aid of sophisticated computer modeling.

And because your aligners are clear, you will be able to show off your smile during the entire treatment all the way up until the end, when your smile finally looks like you have been dreaming of all these years.

A beautiful smile does not have to hurt, and anyone should be able to have one. With the Invisalign system and the friendly folks at My Scottsdale Dentist your dreams of beautiful straight teeth can become your reality.

Invisalign not your mothers braces!

Invisalign is the modern way to achieve straight teeth and this nifty little tool is only getting better! In the old days if you wanted your teeth straightened, you went to your orthodontist and had something that looked like a mid-evil torture device placed on your teeth.  You then had to return to the Orthodontist regularly to get your wire braced tightened every so often (again like a mid-evil torture device!!!) until your teeth moved into the correct position.

Welcome the dawn of the golden age of orthodontics!

Invisalign has been around since 1999 and has grown in to a cutting edge dental treatment with multiple options to meet the needs of orthodontic patients ever where. My Scottsdale Dentist and Dr. Steven Poulos have been using Invisalign as a treatment option for quite some time.  Dr. Poulos finds that more often than not, a patient in need of orthodontic treatment can be treated effectively with Invisalign.
