Hide Your Treatment – Not Your Smile
At Smile Ranch Orthodontics we understand that some people like to wear their braces loud and proud – but others would rather not draw attention to the fact that they’re in treatment. That’s why we offer everything from tooth colored braces to the Invisalign System. With several options for you to chose from, there’s sure to be one that will fit your personal and professional lifestyle.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment, which uses a series of clear aligners to straighten your teeth and align your bite. Invisalign offers the following advantages:
- Invisible – No one can tell you are wearing the aligners because they are clear
- Removable – During treatment you can eat and drink what you want and brushing and flossing are less of a hassle
- Comfortable – Every set of aligners is custom-made, with no metal wires or brackets
Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by Dr. Jensen. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!
Is Invisalign Right for You?
Using its advanced technology, the Invisalign® system can treat a broad range of dental and orthodontic conditions which were usually treated with traditional braces in the past, including:
- Overly crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
Of course, you’ll want to discuss your specific orthodontic concerns with Dr. Alan Jensen.

Our office uses the most state-of-the-art technology available to help create the smile you want, which is why we use the iTero® digital impression system, by Align Technology. Our digital impression system replaces the uncomfortable, unpleasant-tasting, messy and sometimes inaccurate traditional putty impressions. No bulky trays or sticky putty needed!
Using a digital scanner, we will take three-dimensional (3-D) digital images, or impressions, of your teeth and bite. These impressions will help us formulate a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific orthodontic needs and desires. We can also use them to visually show you your treatment options and help us keep you up-to-date on your treatment progress.
After your specific treatment plan has been chosen, the digital impressions allow us to create customized bracket trays that we use to place your brackets onto your teeth, all at one time, with increased efficiency and overall effectiveness.
Some benefits of iTero digital impressions over traditional putty impressions include:
- Accuracy: They capture the exact contours of your teeth.
- Efficiency: They require less time in the treatment chair.
- Comfort: Taking the digital images is less invasive. No putty is used, and patients are more at ease without fearing they will gag on the impression putty.
- Customization: They provide a digital plan and allow for trays that are tailored to meet the individual needs and desires of each patient.
- Visualization: They provide each patient with a definite picture of what their teeth will look like before, during and after orthodontic treatment.
- Innovation: They use the most advanced 3-D video technologies.
