Using the cutting edge digital technology of Invisalign, you can have a straighter smile without all the embarrassing and uncomfortable trappings of old school orthodontics.
Now you can achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of without anyone even knowing you’re working on it! If you want to learn more about Invisalign in Huntington Beach, call our office today to learn why more and more patients are choosing this exciting and technologically innovative procedure.
Using state-of-the-art digital technology, the Invisalign system constructs a comprehensive model of your mouth. This model will give your dentist a full picture of the alignment of all your teeth and will allow us to custom craft a solution tailored just for you. Using these models, our technicians will create a series of clear trays made of medical-grade plastic known as aligners.
These aligners, unlike the bulky metal braces of the past, are clear and basically invisible to the naked eye. Over time the aligners will guide your teeth into a pleasingly straight and symmetrical new smile. Best of all, you will receive several of the aligners at once, allowing you to complete the Invisalign process with minimum visits to our Huntington Beach dentist. This allows you the freedom to switch out the aligners at home every two weeks, eliminating the need for frequent and painful "adjustment" appointments. Call today to learn more about how Invisalign in Huntington Beach may the perfect solution for your needs.
Recent technological breakthroughs have made Invisalign into a treatment that does more than traditional braces ever could. Unlike the old one-size-fits-all approach to orthodontics, the Invisalign system is tailored to each of your individual teeth. This means increased comfort and better results for patients.
The Invisalign process starts when your doctor gives you your first set of aligners. The aligners are worn between 20 and 22 hours a day. They should only be taken out when you eat or drink and during your regular dental hygiene routine. This is the way to ensure you get the best results.
It may take some time to adjust to the way your new aligners feel in your mouth. You may experience pain or discomfort and your teeth may feel loose at first, but this will all stop over time as you get used to the feeling of the aligners in your mouth.
The good news is that unlike traditional braces, patients are allowed to eat or drink anything they want during the Invisalign process. However, it is recommended that you avoid smoking so that no staining occurs. Gum and sticky candy are fine. Just make sure you take out your aligners before you enjoy it.
The dentist will most likely have you swap out aligners every one to two weeks. Fortunately, there is no need for frequent adjustments, as is the case with traditional braces. Generally, the full course of the Invisalign process takes 12-18 months. However, many patients report a significant change in only a few weeks!
