Crooked teeth can take a toll on your self-esteem, social life, and oral health. In the past, correcting the problem meant spending months in metal braces – something many patients consider more embarrassing than crooked teeth. Thankfully, we have a much better option today. You can straighten your teeth discreetly and conveniently with Invisalign from your dentist in Newport Beach, Andrew Spath, DDS.
What is Invisalign?
The Invisalign system is unique. Technically, you will not be wearing braces at all. There are no brackets, and no wires required. Instead, you are provided with a series of transparent aligner trays. Each tray is a one-piece unit, made of BPA free plastic. It simply slips over your teeth, applying gentle pressure where needed for gradual movement.
The treatment process
The proven effectiveness of Invisalign lies in the advanced technology behind it. The trays are designed with the exclusive Invisalign CAD/CAM software. We begin with 3D images of your teeth, as they are now. Precision tooth movements are planned, and the expected result is shown on-screen. You can see how your teeth will look before you ever commit to treatment.
When you and Dr. Spath are satisfied with the projected result, the case is submitted to Invisalign. Your trays are created in a cutting-edge, computer guided manufacturing process, according to the exact specifications of the software. The precision accuracy of the design and manufacturing process leads to highly predictable results.
The one variable that can slow your progress is compliance. These trays are removable, making oral hygiene easy and allowing you to eat whatever you wish. However, it is important to remember that they should be removed only while eating or for cleaning. It may be tempting to cheat, but the less you wear them the longer treatment will take.
The trays are light, thin, and virtually impossible to see when you are wearing them, making compliance easy. The smooth plastic is much gentler to your gums, and the force on your teeth is gentle and carefully targeted for maximum comfort. When a small increment of movement is achieved, usually about two weeks, you will progress to the next aligner in the series. The overall length of treatment varies, depending on your individual situation.
Invisalign clear aligner trays can correct crooked or gapped teeth, overbite, underbite, and crossbite – discreetly! Are you ready to straighten your teeth with style? Call (949) 612 2356 today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Spath to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
