Millions of women, men, teens, and kids the world over smile better, straighter, and more confidently thanks to the Invisalign® teeth-straightening system of nearly invisible aligner trays. Invisalign remains one of the top teeth-straightening systems around and is an industry leader.
When you or your child receives an Invisalign system, you’re given a number of sets of nearly invisible, customized composite aligners. Each set is adjusted so that it gradually moves your teeth closer to your dentist’s goal alignment. Every two weeks or so, you put in a new set, and by the time you finish with your last set of aligners, you have the smile of your dreams.
At Laguna Vista Dental in Elk Grove, California we offer Invisalign at our office. Here’s why our team recommends Invisalign to improve your smile.
Invisalign remains a popular orthodontic choice because it can fix almost any alignment problem. The advanced and innovative technology offered by Invisalign makes it possible to fix both simple and complex issues. Invisalign can treat:
When you come for your Invisalign consultation, we evaluate your smile with a thorough examination and let you know if the Invisalign system can help you.
Many people prefer discretion when it comes to cosmetic fixes. Discretion happens to be another asset of the Invisalign system. The SmartTrack® composite material that makes up the aligners is nearly invisible. Each tray is custom-designed to hug your teeth, so most people won’t even know you’re wearing them.
Quite a number of patients opt for Invisalign because the aligner trays are a lot more comfortable than braces. The metal brackets in traditional braces can irritate your gums, tongue, and inner cheeks. If one of the metal braces wires breaks, it can cut or scratch your gums or other soft tissues.
In contrast, Invisalign aligners are made from high-grade patented composite SmartTrack material. They’re custom-cut to hug your teeth and gum line and have no sharp edges or points to irritate or injure your oral tissues.
Traditional braces can take up to three years to perfect your smile. That’s a long time to suffer a mouthful of metal.
Invisalign fixes your smile flaws a lot faster. While everyone’s treatment plan is unique to them, you can get a perfect smile in 1-1.5 years with Invisalign. That’s just about half the time it could take with traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are designed to be easily removed. This offers many advantages. For one, you don’t have to avoid eating certain foods, like you need to with traditional braces, because you take them out for meals. You can also remove your aligners for special occasions, such as photos, meetings, or events.
With braces, food particles can get caught in the brackets and between the wires; you need to be extra diligent when brushing your teeth. You might also need to invest in a special type of toothbrush or dental floss to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Invisalign’s removable aligners make it easier to keep your teeth clean. Because you can take out your aligners, you can continue to brush and floss your teeth as normal. You brush your aligners with castile soap or soak them in specialized crystals that minimize yellowing.
