Straighter teeth project an impression of good oral health and youth and naturally boost your self-confidence. But if your smile does not naturally align as it should, Dr. Jeanne V. Devi at Jeanne V. Devi, DDS Aesthetic & Restorative Dentistry in Pasadena, California, can help. Our patients can straighten their teeth with convenient, discreet braces thanks to the Invisalign system of transparent and removable orthodontic aligners. Invisalign can be used for patients of any age, from teens to adults, so it is never too late to get your desired smile
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment comprising custom-made, computer-designed, clear plastic dental aligners used to straighten teeth. Computer modeling enables us to calculate how your teeth will move as they are realigned for which we can fabricate a series of BPA-free clear plastic trays. These trays are created from digital impressions we take in our office to ensure that your aligners are comfortable.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
The benefits of Invisalign aligners are as follows:
Since we take digital impressions of your teeth, they are detailed accurately as they are used to fabricate the customized aligners to help address your specific orthodontic issues.
As the Invisalign aligners are clear, they will not be evident to other people, thus allowing you to feel confident in your appearance.
Invisalign clear aligners are made of a safe plastic material and have smooth edges that don’t irritate the teeth or gums.
Invisalign clear aligners can be removed, allowing you to eat, drink, brush, floss, or attend social events without any restrictions.
Invisalign clear aligners work fast; you will begin noticing improvements early on in your treatment.
What Is the Process For Invisalign?
The Invisalign process is easy. After you consult with Dr. Jeanne V. Devi, DDS, we will take digital impressions to develop a 3D image of your oral cavity. We will also explain in detail your treatment, how the Invisalign alignment process works, the duration it will take, and the projected look of your smile after your treatment.
After your clear aligners are fabricated, you are expected to wear them for at least twenty hours daily to achieve optimum results. We recommend removing the aligners only to eat, drink and carry out your oral hygiene routine.
As you change to the next aligner in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they have shifted to their planned positions. Treatment duration is usually six months to a year and consists of 16 to 20 aligner trays, depending on your smile needs.
