Crooked and misaligned teeth can be detrimental to the health and appearance of your smile. Orthodontic treatment can give you the straight smile you desire but you may not want to wear metal braces for up to two years. Another option is “clear braces” or Invisalign® clear aligners. At Majestic Smile Studio, we offer Invisalign aligner treatments at our dental center in Yorba Linda, CA.
Invisalign changed the way people can straighten their smiles. Clear, plastic aligners are a more comfortable and discreet option than braces for correcting misaligned teeth. Both teens and adults can use Invisalign for orthodontic treatment to close gaps, straighten crooked teeth and improve bite alignment.
Some of the benefits of Invisalign over braces include:
- Almost invisible
- More comfortable to wear
- Removable for brushing teeth and eating
- No metal wires or brackets
- No food restrictions
Invisalign aligners are customized to the patient, with aligners that fit comfortably over the teeth. The aligners are designed to be worn at least 22 hours a day, but they can be removed to eat and perform oral hygiene. The treatment time is similar or shorter than braces for most patients.
Invisible Orthodontic Treatment
The Invisalign treatment begins with a thorough exam by Dr. Gutierrez and a 3D scan of the teeth to input into the Invisalign software. The Invisalign system is extremely advanced, giving you a preview of how your smile will look once your treatment is complete. Once a treatment plan is determined, your first set of aligners will be made. Dr. Gutierrez will oversee your orthodontic treatment, and you will be issued a new set of aligners every few weeks, bringing you closer to your desired smile.
Invisalign aligner treatment can last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on the extent of malocclusions in your smile. Like braces, the aligners shift the teeth into the desired position with each set slightly different to achieve the final outcome.
