Invisalign in Cheyenne WY
What is Invisalign Treatment?
Invisalign is a series of removable, clear aligners that orthodontists use as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces. Our patients love them mostly because they are almost invisible in appearance, but there are many other advantages to wearing Invisalign.
- Removable – Invisalign is meant to be removed for eating, drinking, and brushing. That means no more food stuck in your mouth appliance.
- Limited Side Effects – Invisalign wearers typically don’t suffer from some of the side effects of traditional fixed appliances, such as demineralization of the teeth. Users also usually experience less pain and discomfort.
- Potentially Faster Treatment Cycle – Some preliminary studies have shown that Invisalign treatments work faster than traditional fixed appliances.
Braces Wyoming is considered an Invisalign Preferred provider and has demonstrated her commitment to learning the latest in technology advances through continuing education and her proficiency and expertise to design treatment plans specific to our patients’ needs.

Once your braces are removed, the best way to keep your teeth straight and your smile beautiful is through retainers. Here at Braces Wyoming , a combination of both fixed and removable retainers are used to maintain your smile. The best way to ensure great results is to wear them exactly as instructed. Otherwise, some of the great progress made by your braces will be lost.
- Wear them as directed – this cannot be stressed enough. Most removable retainers need to be worn full time for the first 6 months and then can be worn at nighttime after that. Fixed or “glued-in” retainers should be kept in as long as can be tolerated by the patient. If you chose to have these retainers removed by either Dr. Braces Wyoming or your dentist, make sure to get a removable retainer that can be worn at nighttime. Do not go without some form of retention as long as you want your teeth to remain in the position they were placed in after orthodontic treatment.
- Keep them clean – we’ll show you how to keep your retainers clean. In doing so, they’ll not only work better, but keep the buildup of bacteria out of your mouth. A thorough cleaning from your dentist is recommended every six months.
- Handle with care – if a removable retainer is not in your mouth, it should be placed in its case. While they are easy to lose, they aren’t cheap to replace. Should you lose or break your retainer, contact us immediately and we’ll get a replacement made.
