Invisalign Marina, CA

Invisalign is a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment that has revolutionized the way people achieve straighter teeth. Unlike traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires to align teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners. These aligners are virtually invisible when worn and can be easily removed for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene.

One of the remarkable aspects of Invisalign is its ability to address various dental concerns such as overcrowding, spacing issues, crossbites, overbites, or underbites. Whether you have minor alignment issues or more complex cases requiring significant tooth movement – Invisalign can often provide effective results.

How Invisalign Works

Our dentist will take detailed impressions of your teeth and use advanced computer technology to create a 3D model of your mouth. This allows them to map out the precise movement of each tooth throughout the course of your treatment. Next, custom-made, clear aligners are created specifically for you. These aligners are made from medical-grade plastic and fit snugly over your teeth. They apply gentle pressure, gradually shifting your teeth into their desired positions.

You’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set in the series. With each change, you’ll notice subtle changes in the alignment of your teeth as they move closer to their final position. Throughout the process, it’s important to wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day. You can remove them when eating or brushing/flossing your teeth, making it easier than ever to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment.

Regular check-ups with our dentist will ensure that everything is progressing smoothly and adjustments can be made if necessary.

The Benefits of Invisalign

One of the most significant benefits of Invisalign is that it offers a discreet and nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth. 

  • Unlike traditional metal braces, which can be bulky and noticeable, Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic and fit snugly over your teeth. This means that you can confidently smile and speak without feeling self-conscious about your orthodontic treatment.
  • Another advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. This means that you can easily take them out when eating or drinking, allowing you to enjoy all your favorite foods without any restrictions. You also have the freedom to maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing and flossing as usual, as there are no wires or brackets to navigate around.
  • In addition, Invisalign aligners are designed for comfort. Made from smooth plastic material, they won’t irritate your gums or cheeks like traditional braces sometimes can. The custom-made aligners gradually shift your teeth into their desired position with gentle pressure, minimizing discomfort throughout the treatment process.
  • Invisalign aligners are removable and easy to clean; thus, maintaining good oral health during treatment is much simpler compared to traditional braces. With regular check-ups with your dentist or orthodontist every six weeks or so, they will monitor progress and make adjustments as necessary.
  • The benefits of Invisalign extend beyond just cosmetic improvements; it provides a convenient solution for achieving a beautiful smile while also preserving oral health throughout the process.
