At Extreme Smile Makeover in San Diego California, Dr. Ali Shojania provides Invisalign clear braces for patients.
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you.
Invisalign is a proprietary method of orthodontic treatment which uses a series of clear, removable teeth aligners used as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces. Invisalign works over the course of about a year. The patients progress through 18–30 sets of custom-made, removable clear braces and aligners while checking in with the dentist every one to two months, bringing teeth into line gradually.
Only a few of us are lucky enough to be blessed with naturally, perfectly straight teeth. If you were not fortunate enough to be born with the straight teeth with no gaps between them, or if you do not have a perfectly aligned bite, then you are not alone. Thousands of Americans, including some well-known celebrities, are (or were) in the same boat as you. Thankfully, there are easy solutions to this problem, which does not require any invasive dental procedures at all! Dental braces can help to realign your teeth.
Invisalign invisible braces offer a more aesthetically pleasing solution to misaligned teeth than traditional metal and wire braces do, so they offer a more appealing choice to many adults who suffer from these dental problems. These braces are almost completely invisible, and it is almost impossible to tell whether someone is wearing a set of these braces unless you look very closely. This is in sharp contrast to traditional metal braces, which the eye is immediately drawn to.
Despite the fact that they are nowhere near as prominent as traditional metal braces, Invisalign invisible braces work in a similar way to them. Both types of the braces put gentle force onto the teeth to gradually shift and encourage your teeth into their new alignment. However, Invisalign dental braces do not require the periodic and sometimes tricky tightening of wire, but they do require careful forward planning on the part of the dentist, who will need to understand how your teeth will behave.
When you visit an Invisalign dentist in San Diego, they will carefully assess your teeth and use special analysis tools to consider how your teeth will react when gentle forces are applied to them. They will use this data to help to create a completely unique set of Invisalign aligner braces for you to wear. As well as creating an initial set of aligners, they will also create a series of other aligners which you will eventually wear as part of the process. These braces will apply a gentle force to your teeth to help them to gradually realign. These aligners are usually much easy to remove than metal braces are, and they are less likely to cause any sort of scratching or damages to your teeth, which you risk if you wear traditional metal braces.
You will have to revisit your Invisalign dentist in San Diego a few times over the course of the straightening procedure, which may take a number of months in total. During these visits, your dentist will check on the progress of your teeth, and help you to fit the next aligner in the series.
