Invisalign Rio Rancho
Invisalign is a great way to create the beautiful smile you have always wanted – all without having to have braces!
Unlike braces, which are permanently attached to your teeth, Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable, aligners. They are very comfortable and come with the added benefit that no one will know that you are wearing anything. Our patients who chose Invisalign don’t just love their smile after treatment, but during as well! We use a 3-D computer software to aid in our creating a very specific treatment to match your needs.
Invisalign aligners are clear; no one may even notice that you’re wearing braces, making Invisalign® a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. Invisalign® is removable. You have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign does not use metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth. In addition, you’ll spend less time in the doctor’s chair and having to schedule appointments, and more time out doing the things you love. Lastly, Invisalign® allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so that you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.
The clear alternative to metal braces.
Clear orthodontics have helped to transform your journey to straight teeth and an improved smile. Dr. Cowden and his team utilize Invisalign’s medical imaging technology to manufacture clear aligners that rapidly straighten teeth.
For many of our guests, Invisalign has become the first healthy step to a new smile.
Using a precise 3 dimensional analysis of your teeth and adjacent tissue, Invisalign will create custom aligners to fit the unique structure of your mouth and jaw. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and can be removed to eat, brush, floss, and for brief special occasions. During wear, your teeth are gently moved to their ideal position. The length of the process depends on your specific situation and desired results. Dr. Cowden, a Rio Rancho Invisalign provider, offers complimentary consultations to determine timing for each customized invisible braces process.
Invisible aligners are:
- Clear – most people won’t even know you’re wearing them.
- Comfortable – aligners are gentle to your mouth.
- Removable – take them out to eat or brush, then put them back in again.
- Hygienic – surfaces are easy to keep clean.
- Affordable – in most cases, the cost is comparable to metal braces.
- Fast – treatment time is comparable and in many cases less than that of traditional braces. An average course of treatment takes about 5 months to one year.
Clear braces or Invisible braces are the advanced way to straighten teeth and improve smiles. Using the latest medical imaging technologies, Invisalign manufactures precision polymer aligners that rapidly straighten teeth.
Using a precise 3-dimensional analysis of your teeth and adjacent tissue, aligners are crafted personally for our guests. Each aligner is worn for approximately two to three weeks, and can be removed to eat, brush and floss. During wear, the teeth are gently moved to their ideal position. The length of the process depends on the specific situation and the results each person wants to achieve.
Everyone wants to know what these really look like.
Aligners are clear and nearly invisible. If you’ve ever seen clear tooth-whitening trays, that should give you a good idea of what the aligners look like. Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit and move your teeth.

Never underestimate the power of an incredible smile. It is not only beautiful, but first and foremost, it promotes health (straight teeth are easier to keep clean and less likely to develop periodontal disease):
- Teeth that are straight and evenly spaced are easier to keep clean, leading to better oral health. Better oral health can reduce the incidence of heart disease, gastrointestinal disease, and other health conditions.
- Teeth that are properly aligned chew more efficiently, and that aids in proper digestion
- Teeth that are straight and properly aligned create a more perfect bite, and that avoids excessive stress, headaches, and strain on your supporting bone and tissue.
- The social benefits of a beautiful smile are also important:
- Confidence – in job interviews, public speaking and personal relationships.
- Clearer speech – teeth play an important role in your ability to speak.
Many companies allow pre-tax contributions to be set aside in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA). Orthodontic treatment is considered a qualified treatment that can be reimbursed using your FSA. Many doctors also offer flexible and affordable in-house payment plans.
We know cost is a big question for anyone considering dental or orthodontic work. The truth is, only your doctor can determine the cost of your specific treatment. It really depends on the kind of treatment you need, how extensive the issues are that you want corrected, how long your treatment plan will last, where you live, and other factors determined by your dentist or orthodontist.
Because medical benefits differ significantly from policy to policy, you should review your personal coverage plan. However, in general, if a patient has orthodontic coverage, Invisalign should be covered to the same extent as conventional braces
Dr. Cowden has had extensive training in the art and science of occlusion. Occlusion is the relation between the upper and lower teeth when the jaw is closed and their surfaces come in contact. Orthodontics is not just about creating straight teeth; it is also about establishing a healthy, long-lasting biting position for the teeth. Crooked teeth often result in excessive wear to teeth that can result in a variety of long-term problems. Dr. Cowden understands the importance of function and aesthetics.
In addition, many people choose Dr. Cowden for teeth straightening prior to proceeding with cosmetic veneers. His ability to establish proper bite positioning before making the final cosmetic enhancement significantly improves one’s chances of achieving the most natural looking, long lasting results.
When it comes to adult orthodontics Dr. Cowden and his team can picture the end result. We like to be honest about the probable outcome with orthodontics. Occasionally the desired outcome is not achievable with orthodontics alone. Dr. Cowden will often recontour teeth, whiten, place a few veneers or use bonding to create the optimal end result. These added services are best completed with a dentist who is skilled in cosmetic treatment.
