Center for Invisalign
Most people want a perfect smile and healthy bite but do not want to wear metal or even clear braces. Dr. Monacell knows that today’s orthodontic treatment needs to keep up with society’s demand for convenience and aesthetic options for straightening your teeth. Invisalign, a series of clear aligners that are a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and correct your bite without braces and wires, can help you achieve that beautiful smile.
Experience matters when choosing an orthodontist for your Invisalign treatment. The magic of Invisalign is not in the aligners, but in the overall smile design and planned movement of each individual tooth that Dr. Monacell prescribes based on your facial proportions. Dr. Monacell is proud to be one of the most experienced providers of Invisalign and Invisalign Teen in the Richmond, Mechanicsville and Sandston areas of Virginia.
Teenagers today are busier and more self-conscious about their appearance than ever before. At Monacell Orthodontics, we understand that how you look can impact how you feel, especially for teens. We’ve seen firsthand how transforming a smile can reward a teen with a boost in self-confidence, a happier demeanor, and improved social interactions with friends and classmates. Give your teen a gift that will last forever: a beautiful smile.
We believe that orthodontic treatment for teens does not have to mean metal braces. Most of our patients choose more aesthetic treatment options, like Invisalign® and most finish treatment in 18-20 months or less. We know how busy teenagers are with sports, band practice and life in general so we offer before and after school appointments and accelerated treatment options to fit their individual smiles and busy teen lifestyles.

What is Invisalign?
The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Using advanced 3-D computer imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom made for your teeth – and your teeth only – to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor based on your specific needs.
What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?
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. Unlike braces, 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.
How many patients are being treated with Invisalign?
More than 1,000,000 patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign. The number of Invisalign smiles grows daily. At your next appointment, Dr. Monacell can help answer any questions you might have, and get you started on the smile you’ve always wanted.
Conventional vs Digital Impressions
No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. Using an iTero scanner, our staff can take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth and jaw. The new technology eliminates the tray and putty impressions, where the experience is comparable to stuffing a big wad of gum in your mouth. The old technique is incredibly unpleasant and frequently results in taking multiple rounds of impressions that can be rejected, broken, or misplaced. The iTero scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions also give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
How Does it Work?
The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once your orthodontist begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.
Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser, and in as little as two to three minutes, the laser renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software, you’ll then be able to follow the progress of the scans, including a 3D model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iTero scanner can be used for any orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign®.
