Do you want straighter teeth? Are you turned off by the idea of wearing traditional metal braces?
Consider Invisalign®, the innovative orthodontic system that allows you to correct misaligned teeth without the hassle of brackets of wires.
Find out why patients of Family Dental Care in Flowood, MS, serving Greater Jackson, love the freedom that comes with Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign Clear Aligners A Modern Orthodontic Approach
Invisalign has changed how we think about orthodontic care. Rather than using uncomfortable and unsightly metal hardware to reposition your teeth, the Invisalign system uses a series of transparent plastic trays. At Family Dental Care in Flowood, MS, serving the greater Jackson area, Dr. Jan O'Keefe Belote oversees orthodontic treatment with Invisalign. She can create a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve the beautiful, straighter smile you desire.
Invisalign Provides a Number of 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. During your initial consultation at our Flowood office, just east of Jackson, MS, 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.
CommittedInvisalign 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.
Invisalign Attachments Make Treatment Possible for More Patients
Invisalign attachments are tooth-colored "bumps" of resin that are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. They give the aligner trays a firmer grip on the teeth, which in turn helps them provide additional force to achieve movement. Teeth that are rotated or otherwise affected by more complex misalignment can still be brought into proper position with Invisalign attachments.
If your orthodontic needs are especially complex, we also offer clear braces. These work much like traditional metal braces, but they use ceramic brackets and tooth-colored wires for a much more subtle look. When patients in Greater Jackson need orthodontic solutions, we can handle cases both simple and complex.

You Can Have a Straight Smile
A Simple and Straightforward Treatment Process
Invisalign treatment typically takes 12 to 18 months to complete. At the end of the treatment process, you'll wear your last set of aligners or a new custom retainer to sleep to preserve your results.
To maintain your straight teeth and new smile, you must wear the last set of clear aligners or a pair of retainers to sleep. Retainers help 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 dental hygiene at home, including cleaning your aligner trays and retainers each day.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
The average cost of Invisalign treatment is $3,000 to $5,000 at our Jackson-area dental practice. Because Invisalign is a truly personalized orthodontic treatment experience, costs vary per patient. Your final costs may influenced by factors like whether you required any preparatory dentistry and the length of your treatment plan.
