Have you always dreamed of achieving a straight, radiant smile without the hassle of traditional braces and prickly wires?
Dr. Terrance Wolbaum offers Invisalign® to gently straighten your teeth, improving your appearance, oral health, and confidence.
Our dentist at Pioneer Hills Dental in Aurora, CO, has been recognized as an Invisalign silver provider and can help you craft a new smile.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment involving a series of removable clear aligners. These aligners can correct minor to moderate misalignment. Both dentists and orthodontists can provide this effective orthodontic option, giving you a more convenient and discreet alternative to traditional braces.
Straightening Your Smile with Invisalign
Invisalign has revolutionized the field of orthodontics. Instead of using traditional metal braces to correct misalignment, Invisalign uses clear removable aligners that are customized to your bite. Patients at Pioneer Hills Dental in Aurora are thrilled with their Invisalign results and love how easy and convenient treatment is. If you’re ready to stop smiling with your mouth closed and feeling insecure about your crooked teeth, Invisalign may be the treatment you’re looking for. Dr. Wolbaum can determine if this solution is right for you during a consultation at our Aurora dental office.
You're Never Too Old To Improve Your Smile
Do you feel like your teeth are slowly trying to shift position? Aging, genetics, and even just using your teeth can cause them to move over time. This leaves many adults wondering why their smile now looks misaligned, even if they had orthodontia as a child. Whether you've never had treatment with orthodontics before or you're looking at re-straightening your smile, Invisalign is a discreet way to get the results you desire.

ComfortableBrackets and wires can scrape against your mouth and cause irritation and discomfort, but clear aligners are smooth and fit precisely, making all-day wear easy.
Easily RemovableReady to eat or brush? Simply take out your aligners and set them aside. Unlike braces, Invisalign gives you the freedom to easily remove your aligners when needed.
Easy MaintenanceCleaning your aligners and maintaining your oral health is easy with Invisalign. You can brush and floss as you normally would without having to navigate around braces.

A Real Patient's Invisalign Results
Does Insurance Cover Invisalign?
Some dental insurance plans will partially cover Invisalign, but not all. Our office in Aurora accepts most dental insurance plans, and we can help you verify your coverage. If you are uninsured or your plan does not cover Invisalign, know that we partner with CareCredit®, a third-party lender that offers low-interest and interest-free financing repayable in monthly installments. If you have any questions about the process, our staff is happy to assist you.
No Need to Visit an Orthodontist Our Dentist Can Give You a Straighter Smile

Do I Qualify for Invisalign Treatment?
Mild to Moderate Misalignment
Invisalign treatment is best for patients with mild to moderate cases of misalignment. For more severe cases, braces may be recommended. We'll be happy to connect you with a trusted local orthodontist who offers them.
Good Oral Health
Patients must be in good oral health before beginning treatment. Any cavities or infections must be addressed and treated before starting the Invisalign process. We can help clear these issues up with gentle treatment at our office.
Invisalign patients must be committed to wearing their aligners for 20 to 22 hours every day. This ensures the best results and reduces the likelihood of needing to prolong treatment. If you think you may struggle with this treatment schedule, traditional braces or clear braces could be great alternative choices.
No Teeth Grinding
Bruxism can wear down aligners and negatively affect treatment, as Invisalign aligners are meant to be worn both during the daytime and while sleeping. Patients who grind their teeth may be better suited for braces.
Have a Complex Case? Invisalign Attachments Can Help.
Invisalign aligners are scalloped at the gum line to blend seamlessly with your smile. This natural appearance is a great benefit, but it can lessen the force that's applied to the teeth. Invisalign works around this drawback by offering attachments.
Invisalign attachments are small tooth-colored bumps that are bonded to the teeth. They give the aligners additional "grip" on the teeth to keep treatment running as planned. We offer these attachments at our Aurora office for patients with moderate to complex cases of misalignment that could use an extra boost.
What to Expect During Invisalign Treatment
Aurora, CO, patients trust Dr. Wolbaum to refine their smiles with Invisalign. He provides a convenient treatment plan centered around their schedule and needs, offering extended hours for busy patients.
Less Pain When You Choose Invisalign
Studies show that pain levels in the first few days of starting Invisalign are lower than treatment with a fixed appliance like braces. For a comfortable and effective orthodontic treatment option, choose Invisalign.
Invisalign Tips How to Get the Most Out of Treatment
Clean Your Aligners
The best way to clean your aligners is by soaking them in warm (not hot) water with a denture cleaning tablet. However, if you're on the go or pressed for time, lightly brushing the aligners with a soft toothbrush can help you clear away surface bacteria.
Only Drink Water
Remove your aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water. This helps prevent staining and damage to the aligners. Remember to brush your teeth before putting them back in so bacteria doesn't get trapped underneath the aligners.
Commit to Wear Times
Our dentist will let you know the appropriate amount of time you need to wear your aligners for. The daily hours can vary by person and throughout your treatment, but typically we encourage patients to wear their aligners for 20-22 hours a day.
Be Cautious When Traveling
Invisalign treatment is most effective when the aligners are worn for nearly all hours of the day. If you're traveling, bring an extra set of clear aligners with you in case you lose or damage your current set of aligners and need a new pair to get you through your vacation.

Consider Teeth Whitening
After Invisalign Treatment
Looking for that finishing touch? Our office offers many cosmetic dentistry treatments, including professional teeth whitening. To compliment your new, straight smile, consider whitening your teeth to address any stains or discoloration distracting from their beauty.
How frequent are check-ups?
How often you come back to our office for our dentist to monitor your progress will depend on your unique Invisalign case. Generally, follow-up appointments happen every four months. These follow-up appointments allow Dr. Wolbaum to ensure your results are developing as planned and make adjustments to the course of your treatment, if needed. We work with you along the way to ensure your desired results are met by the end of your treatment.
How can I maintain my results?
After you have achieved your dream smile, it is important to maintain it. Patients should wear their last set of Invisalign aligners or a new set of retainers to bed every night. This keeps your teeth in position and prevents any shifting from occurring. Meanwhile, it’s essential to keep up with routine dental visits, brush and floss regularly, and maintain good oral hygiene.
Does Invisalign hurt?
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners offer greater comfort and flexibility. While you may initially experience minor discomfort with each new set, over-the-counter pain relief options like acetaminophen or ibuprofen can help. Once you adapt to wearing Invisalign, you'll likely forget you have them on, even being able to comfortably sleep in them as they work their magic overnight.
Can Invisalign cause jaw pain?
Slight discomfort can occur when switching between Invisalign aligners, including temporary jaw pain for some patients. However, you risk chronic jaw pain by not addressing misalignment issues that can exert pressure on your TMJs over time, possibly leading to a TMJ disorder.
