Do you want to straighten your teeth without having to wear bulky metal braces? If you need braces but are concerned about the impact on your smile, ask us about Invisalign.
Invisalign uses a series of clear trays called aligners. These custom aligners are virtually invisible and are custom molded to fit you. These aligners gradually reposition and straighten your teeth. Call us at 949-362-3848 to see if you are a candidate for this treatment.
Invisalign can be used in many cases to straighten teeth without the use of metal brackets or rubber bands. Invisalign is simply a clear removable tray that is custom made to fit your teeth. This tray is to be worn all the time except when eating or drinking. Rinse or brush your teeth after eating, and then place the tray back in. This tray will slowly shift your teeth into the desired position.
Every two weeks, you will be given a new tray to continue the progress. The average treatment time is one year, but the duration will depend on your specific case.
In the past, getting braces has meant years of painful adjustments and struggling with self-image. But since 1999, Invisalign has literally changed the face of orthodontics for over half a million satisfied patients.
Instead of wires or bands attached to the outside of your teeth where the world can see them, Invisalign treatment utilizes cutting edge technology to prepare a series of clear plastic molds of your teeth during each stage of alignment. Every two weeks, we will check on your progress and give you the next mold, or "aligner," to keep your treatment on track.
The aligners are removable, making for easier eating, brushing and flossing. They move your teeth into place gradually, but in a much shorter length of time than normal braces – you’ll achieve results in six months to a year with Invisalign.
Invisalign can improve the smiles of anyone with crossbites, overbites, underbites, crowded teeth or teeth that are spaced too far apart.
