Invisalign® Clear Aligners in Birmingham, MI
A Discreet, Convenient Alternative to Braces
For many years, metal braces have been the most common and reliable treatment for misaligned teeth. However, many patients try to avoid braces due to their noticeable appearance and the many hassles that come with wearing them. If you’re one of these patients, our Saad dental team is happy to offer Invisalign® clear aligners as a less-invasive alternative. In as little as half the time required for traditional braces, you can achieve a stunning, beautifully aligned smile that will boost your confidence and promote lasting oral health.
What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® aligners are clear, removable orthodontic appliances that fit snugly over your teeth. They put gentle pressure on your teeth over time, shifting them efficiently into their proper position for dazzling results. Because the trays can be removed, this treatment option allows you to eat without restrictions and share your smile with confidence. The transparent aligners are nearly invisible while in use, meaning no one will know you’re addressing alignment issues and they never have to interfere in social or professional situations. Best of all, Invisalign® treatment works up to two times faster than traditional metal braces.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® provides several unique benefits that metal braces can’t match, including:
The clear aligners are nearly invisible while in use, allowing you to align your teeth without drawing attention to your treatment.
You’ll take out your aligners before eating meals or playing sports, allowing you to live your life without restrictions.
Invisalign aligners can straighten your teeth in as little as 12 months, approximately half the treatment time required for metal braces.
Each set of aligners is customized to fit your teeth perfectly, and you won’t have to worry about painful bracket adjustments or metal wires poking your gums.
The Invisalign® Treatment Process
The first step of the Invisalign® process is visiting our Birmingham, MI practice for a consultation. During this visit, one of our dentists will examine your teeth and determine whether Invisalign® will be an effective treatment to address your alignment issues. If we decide to proceed, we’ll create a 3D digital impression of your smile and send this data to an offsite dental laboratory. There, the renderings of your teeth and facial structure will be used to craft your customized aligners.
When your custom Invisalign trays are created, you’ll return to our office to receive your first sets of aligners. You’ll wear each pair of aligners for about two weeks before switching them out for the next set. Each phase of alignment trays is designed to only influence certain teeth, gently shifting them into their proper position until your desired results are achieved. In most cases, we’ll be able to complete your Invisalign® treatment in just 12 to 18 months.

Invisalign aligners are much easier to keep clean than metal braces. All you need to do is brush your aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush every morning when you wake up and every night before you go to bed.
It’s crucial that you remember to take out your aligners before meals and brush your teeth before putting them back in. This will prevent food crumbs and bacteria from getting trapped in your teeth and causing an infection. Avoid drinking anything but clear water while wearing your aligners, as other beverages can leave stains on your trays.
