We all deserve to look our best. In fact, many of us invest in a beautiful wardrobe, regular haircuts, and other ways of enhancing our image. Yet, when you have crooked, misaligned, or protruding teeth, no amount of dressing up can hide your smile. If you are in Phoenix and want to improve the alignment of your teeth, contact us at Arcadia Dentistry to learn more about your options.
Many patients consider Invisalign to achieve the perfectly straight smile they’ve always dreamed of—without traditional metal braces! As a professional adult, you won’t have to meet new clients or host important meetings with unseemly “train-track” orthodontics
Call Dr. Matthew Milana and his expert dental team to see what your options are.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign works by custom fabricating a sequence of invisible, comfortable, and removable clear plastic aligners that slowly and gently push your teeth into proper alignment. Invisible braces can fix mild to moderate dental issues, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Protruding teeth
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
During your initial consultation with Dr. Milana, we will create a 3-D impression of your teeth and gums to visualize your smile treatment plan and make your custom aligners. The aligners should be worn every day, except during eating or drinking. The aligners will be replaced by the next set in the series every one or two weeks, depending on your orthodontic needs.

What are the benefits of Invisible Braces?
Invisalign clear aligners shift the alignment of your teeth by applying gentle, precise, and controlled force. Depending on the treatment plan, Invisalign can be more effective than traditional metal braces.
Many of our Phoenix patients enjoy Invisalign for multiple reasons, including:
Because they’re virtually invisible, Invisalign clear plastic aligners won’t be the first thing people notice about you. This makes them especially attractive to adults who may not want to call attention to themselves.
Since invisible braces are removable, you don’t have to eat or drink while wearing braces. The main advantage of this is that patients never have to worry about trapped food particles or staining. Brushing and flossing are more comfortable without having to navigate around wires or brackets, which can ultimately leave our patients with better oral health than metal braces.
Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces due to the soft plastic material and smooth edges. Traditional metal braces can cut the gums and teeth, or be painful after a visit to the dentist to tighten wires and brackets.
Is There Another Clear Aligner Option?
Yes! At Arcadia Dentistry in Phoenix, Dr. Milana offers Smart Moves® invisible aligners. Smart Moves is designed to make small, gradual adjustments to teeth. Patients use Smart Moves to correct minor crowding or gap issues. This system is ideal for patients who have had braces before but are experiencing a relapse in teeth alignment.
