The Most Advanced Orthodontic Appliance to Date
Invisalign Provides Endless Benefits
Discreet OrthodonticsUnlike braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, making them a great choice for public speakers, people with customer-facing jobs, or those who simply don't like the look of traditional orthodontics. Since aligners aren't noticeable, patients don't need to feel insecure in social situations.
Comfortable AppliancesPatients who wear braces are always at risk of an unexpected poke from a wire or bracket. This can cause irritation and discomfort inside the mouth. In comparison, Invisalign clear aligners are smooth, simple, and pop on and off in seconds.
No Restricted DietHungry and ready to eat? Patients with braces need to worry about what foods will damage their brackets, but with Invisalign, you can simply remove your clear aligners and enjoy your favorite sticky, crunchy, and gooey foods with no second thoughts.
Easy MaintenanceWith Invisalign, it's easy to take care of your teeth and stay on top of your dental health. Remove your clear aligners when you're ready to brush and floss. Do these activities as you would regularly, and clean your aligners each time to prevent any issues. This is significantly easier than trying to maneuver floss around braces.
Boosted ConfidenceAchieve straight teeth and a beautiful smile in around 12 months. Invisalign provides a new sense of control and freedom to straightening teeth, with a stunning smile at the end to prove it. Patients feel more confident and enjoy a higher quality of life without having to worry about how their teeth look.

The Ideal Candidate for Invisalign
While Invisalign sounds like the ideal orthodontic treatment, it is not for everyone. At your initial consultation at our Flowood office, Dr. O'Keefe Belote will review your dental needs, assess the condition of your smile, and discuss your concerns to determine if Invisalign is the right treatment option for you.
Mild or Moderate Cases
Invisalign treats mild or moderate malocclusion (improper bite), crowding, or gapped teeth. Dr. O'Keefe Belote may recommend traditional orthodontic treatment for patients with more extreme needs that Invisalign cannot address.
Good Oral Health
Patients need to be in good oral health before beginning treatment. We will need to address and treat any decay, infection, or gum disease before starting treatment. Along with a healthy mouth, patients must be able to care for their aligners on a daily basis.
Invisalign oral appliances are removable but must be worn at least 20 hours per day. You must be dedicated to wearing the aligners. This is essential, as failing to do so may result in more prolonged treatment. Patients should also take extra care to avoid losing their aligners.
No Teeth Grinding
Patients who suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding) may not be eligible for Invisalign because this habit can wear down the chewing surfaces of the aligners, interfering with your treatment. Dr. O'Keefe Belote will assess your case and recommend an alternative treatment, such as braces, if necessary.
You Can Have a Straight Smile
A Simple and Straightforward Treatment Process
Invisalign treatment typically takes 12 to 18 months to complete.
To maintain your straight teeth and new smile, patients must wear their last set of clear aligners or a pair of retainers to sleep. This helps prevent any shifting or movement that may occur in the mouth, ensuring that your teeth stay where they are. It is vital to follow these instructions, as neglecting to do so may eventually require costly retreatment. Patients should also stay on top of their routine dental visits and practice good hygiene at home.
