Enjoy Easy & Metal-Free Orthodontic Treatment With Invisalign

With his holistic approach to dentistry, Dr. Craig Sommer avoids using metal in fillings. He is also happy to offer a metal-free approach to orthodontic treatment: Invisalign in Colorado Springs. Instead of metal braces, the treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligners. With no metallic brackets and wires, you’ll enjoy:

  • A Natural Appearance – Worried about how others will react to braces in business and social settings? In photos and even in person, most people won’t notice you’re wearing Invisalign aligners
  • Comfort – Smooth aligners won’t irritate your gums and cheeks the way that bulky metal hardware can
  • Your Favorite Foods – You can take your aligners out for meals, so you won’t need to avoid any foods due to fear they will get stuck in your braces and be difficult to remove
  • Improved Oral Health – Remove aligners to keep teeth clean during treatment without snagging your toothbrush or floss on braces. Once your teeth are straight, you’ll also find it easier to remove the plaque and bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease
  • Quick Treatment – Many people complete their Invisalign treatment in less time than braces. The average treatment time for adults is just 12 months

Invisalign treatment is a natural holistic approach to your dental health and whole body health. To see if you’re a candidate for Invisalign invisible braces, call 719-632-3591 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sommer. From scheduling to treatment, we want to keep the process as easy as possible.

You’ll Need Fewer Appointments With Invisalign Treatment

Dr. Sommer uses hassle-free digital teeth impressions and other information to create a customized Invisalign treatment plan for you:

    • He sends the plan to a special lab, where your aligners are manufactured to his specifications
    • When they arrive at our office, he’ll check the fit of the first aligners and review your plan with you
    • You’ll wear each set of aligners for two weeks before moving to the next ones in the series
    • You’ll visit us every six weeks so we can ensure your Invisalign treatment is progressing as planned

    In addition to fewer appointments than most people need for braces, you also won’t need uncomfortable adjustments. You’ll likely complete your treatment in less time than braces too.

    Common Questions
    About Invisalign


    Who does Invisalign work for?

    Invisalign works for teens and adults alike. This program is best for folks with less severe orthodontic issues. If you are deemed by us to be a good candidate, Dr. Sommer will start by using digital teeth impressions to plot out the sequence of aligners that will help you achieve your smile goals. You just keep switching out the aligners for the next set until you get to your preferred destination of a straight smile.

    How soon will I see results from Invisalign?

    Whereas regular old braces would hold your smile hostage for two to three long years, Invisalign clear aligners can create results in only a matter of months, normally about 12. Remember, the time frame is different for each patient based on severity of issues and other factors. Still, the sooner you request your consultation, the sooner you can enjoy a straighter smile!

    Is Invisalign really invisible?

    Practically! Applying his holistic approach to orthodontics, Dr. Sommer avoids using the metal that braces would necessitate for brackets and wires. Instead, our orthodontic aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, and clear plastic material that is nearly invisible to the naked eye. There are many other benefits that we can discuss during your clear aligners consultation.

    Ae Invisalign results permanent?

    As with any orthodontic treatment, your teeth can shift out of place unless you wear a retainer. Your last set of aligners can be used as a temporary retainer until we determine the right kind of appliance for you. You’ll typically wear a retainer all the time for about six months, then wear it only at night for another six months. For the best long-term results, you can continue wearing it overnight a few times a week.
