Overview of Invisalign

Posted by Jeanne V. Devi DDS on Jan 7 2022, 08:35 AM

If you are unhappy with your smile but do not want to undergo metal braces, Invisalign clear braces may be a good option. This advanced treatment can realign your misaligned teeth without the need for metal wires or brackets. They are transparent, allowing you to have private treatment.

We provide the best Invisalign treatment at Jeanne V. Devi DDS in Pasadena, CA to repair your dental defects and give you a balanced smile.

What Problems Can Invisalign Correct?

  • Gaps that have formed between teeth
  • Tooth overcrowding, crookedness, or overlapping
  • Crossbite 
  • Tooth protrusion that causes poor alignment

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign works the same way traditional orthodontic braces do. These are a set of clear trays that are shaped to shift and change the structure of your teeth to obtain an aligned bite and a healthy mouth. The best part of your Invisalign treatment is being able to view your final smile before the treatment begins!

Invisalign Procedure

During your initial appointment, our dentists will identify the best therapy for you and create a personalized treatment plan. Then, we'll take X-rays and imprints of your teeth to send to the lab for processing. The impressions will then be used by 3D computer imaging technology to create personalized clear aligners.

You will then be issued your Invisalign aligners at your next clinic visit. Each set of aligners must be worn continuously for around two weeks, except while conducting normal oral activities.

Consultations should be scheduled once a month to confirm that treatment is proceeding as intended. Once all of the aligners have been worn, the therapy is complete.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • While metal braces are typically too visible, Invisalign aligners are clear and practically imperceptible.
  • Invisalign aligners are created with cutting-edge technology. And the treatment is meticulously organized with the help of specialized software.
  • There are no metal pieces in Invisalign aligners, which would have felt uncomfortable. This also aids in injury prevention.
  • The therapy is less painful than with metal braces since Invisalign aligners softly squeeze your teeth.
  • Invisalign, unlike metal braces, does not require any dietary adjustments. When you eat, you can take the aligners out.
  • You can also take out the Invisalign aligners to clean your teeth. This allows you to continue using your normal dental hygiene practice while also preventing cavities.
