Are you afraid to show your smile due to crooked teeth? Looking for a discrete way to straighten your smile that doesn't involve braces?
Invisalign® clear aligners are a comfortable and simplified orthodontic treatment for many misalignment issues.
Gulch Dental Studio in Nashville, TN, can help you straighten your teeth and get you back to smiling with confidence.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners molded to fit your teeth in a way that applies constant but gentle pressure, causing your teeth to straighten. They are an orthodontic landmark and a great alternative to metal brackets and wires for those with minor to moderate alignment issues. Gulch Dental Studio is known throughout Nashville as the best place for a cosmetic upgrade to your smile, and we are here to help you experience the benefits of Invisalign treatment.
How Clear Aligners Work
Like braces, Invisalign is designed to move your teeth a little at a time. After digital impressions are taken by your dentist, you will receive a series of plastic aligners to adjust your teeth and gradually shift them into the proper position. It is recommended that you wear your aligners 22 hours each day, removing them only to eat or drink liquids other than water. Each set of aligners is worn about two weeks before moving onto the next set.
The Process of Invisalign Treatment
Each patient's smile is unique, so each treatment plan will be personalized to their needs.

Pros and Cons of Invisalign Aligners
The completely clear plastic makes Invisalign virtually undetectable while wearing the aligners.
Being removable makes Invisalign easy to clean and gives you the freedom to eat anything you like.
Invisalign is a quick and effective tool to achieve a straight smile. With proper use, you could see your new smile in as little as six months.
Patients are often thrilled to learn that Invisalign is comparable in price to traditional orthodontic treatment.
Since the aligners are removable, they can easily be lost or misplaced. This is generally a concern for parents who have teenagers using Invisalign. However, Invisalign First (previously Invisalign Teen) comes with replacement aligners for this reason. No matter what, be sure to take care whenever removing your aligners so you know where they are at all times.
Clear aligners can become stained by certain foods and drinks. This is why it is so important to be sure your mouth is rinsed and cleaned before reinserting your aligners.
Only for Mild to Moderate Cases
Invisalign is effective for most misalignment cases, but for more severe cases, they may not be enough. That is why talking with your dentist is always the first step in developing a treatment plan to straighten your teeth.

Cost of Invisalign
Since each person's dental care plan is unique, the cost of treatment will vary for each patient. Typically, Invisalign is around the same price as traditional metal braces, and many basic insurance plans will contribute to the cost of this treatment. Reach out to our Nashville office to learn more about our CareCredit® financing options and how we can create a custom treatment plan for any budget.

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign
Don't I need to visit an orthodontist for Invisalign?
No. Though an orthodontist specializes in orthodontic concerns, our dentists are trained in using Invisalign to straighten smiles. The benefit of seeing a dentist over an orthodontist is that you can undergo treatment for a wide variety of needs at our Nashville office, including routine check-ups and cleanings. This means all your dental care can be handled under one roof, rather than by visiting both a dentist and an orthodontist.
Q. How long does Invisalign treatment take?
A. This will depend on your orthodontic concerns. Some mild issues can be corrected in as little as six months, while more moderate issues can require 12 to 18 months.
Q. Can my child undergo Invisalign treatment?
A. This will vary from child to child. A good candidate for Invisalign will be responsible enough to wear their clear aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day and maintain the trays.
Ready for an Even More Youthful Appearance?
