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 someone who has minor to moderate alignment issues. Gulch Dental Studio is known throughout Nashville as the best place to achieve a cosmetic upgrade in your smile, and we are here to help you experience the maximum 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.

How To Care For Your Clear Aligners
Clean Your Invisalign Trays Each Time You Brush And Floss Your Teeth
The best way to clean your aligners is by using the Invisalign Cleaning System. However, denture cleaner is another great way to get your aligners clean without damaging them. Do not use extremely hot or cold water when cleaning Invisalign. As they are made of plastic, extreme temperatures can warp the shape and make them ineffective.
Rinse After Eating
Don't let anything - especially food particles and bacteria - get between your teeth and your aligners. Since Invisalign clear aligners are removable, be sure to rinse your mouth well with lukewarm water before putting your aligners back in after eating.
Know When to Remove Your Aligner
Drinking things like sodas, coffee, and alcoholic beverages while wearing Invisalign means those acids and sugars will sit on your teeth until you remove the aligner. This can cause other oral health issues such as cavities or tooth discoloration. If you are going to consume something besides water, be sure to remove Invisalign and brush your teeth before putting the aligners back in place.
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.
- Easily Lost
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.
