Invisalign in La Jolla, Del Mar, & Pacific Beach
Have you always longed for a straight, camera-ready smile? Do you dream about having straight teeth but don’t want to go through the hassle of wearing metal braces? Invisalign teeth aligners can give you straighter teeth in a year or less without the discomfort or embarrassment of a metal-filled smile. Invisalign teeth aligners are clear, removable trays that gradually move your teeth into the proper position and alignment. This comfortable, convenient alternative to metal braces can be a perfect solution for both children and adults. Invisalign teeth aligners are custom-made to fit each patient’s mouth, and since the trays are made of smooth medical-grade plastic, they provide an easy fit. Read on to find out more about this advanced teeth straightening system offered by our practice.
What Can Invisalign Correct?
- An overbite or underbite
- Teeth that are overly crowded
- Gaps between teeth
- An open bite (when upper and lower teeth don’t meet while biting)
- A crossbite (caused by misaligned upper and lower jaws)
What Advantages Does Invisalign Have Over Braces?
- Clear design makes them inconspicuous
- Comfortable design and materials won’t poke or irritate mouth or gums
- Aligner trays are removable for cleaning or eating
- Faster results, with straightened teeth in a year or less (for typical results)
What Is the Invisalign Treatment Process Like?
Your Invisalign treatment will begin with the creation of custom-made teeth aligners. Our dental professionals will start by making an impression of your bite and taking X-rays and photographs of your teeth. All of this information is collected in order to create a 3-D image of your mouth that we will use when planning your treatment. This image will also be used to create your custom aligner trays. You will wear a new set of aligners every two weeks, in order to subtly and gently shift your teeth one bit at a time.
Once you receive your Invisalign aligners, we recommend that you wear them consistently, and both day and night (only removing them briefly to brush and floss, clean the aligners and eat) for optimal results. Though each patient’s needs are different, a typical Invisalign treatment plan consists of wearing aligners for up to 12 months (and sometimes less).
