Here at Braces and Invisalign in OC, we specialize in Invisalign clear braces. We hold daily Invisalign Westminster consultations to see whether or not a patient qualifies for Invisalign’s products.
Invisalign is a product that takes a completely modern approach to straightening teeth. It uses a series of custom-made, removable plastic pieces, called aligners, which are made specifically from an impression mold of your mouth. These clear aligners gradually and gently shift your teeth into place when they are worn. All treatment plans are based on the suggestions of the doctors here at Braces and Invisalign in OC.
The process begins by taking an impression of your mouth. We use the iTero Digital Impression Scanner to make the most accurate molds of your teeth; there’s no gooey impression material that comes along with using the older, polyvinyl-siloxane-based impression method.
Not only does Invisalign improve the appearance of your smile, but it also improves the overall health of your mouth. This, in turn, can also heighten your overall body health. Treatment time ranges anywhere from six to twelve months, depending on how much alignment is needed.
There are many benefits to electing to use Invisalign over traditional braces. Their appearance is much more subtle than metal braces, thus lessening the insecurities associated with having your teeth straightened. All of the custom aligners are removable; you’ll be able to eat and drink whatever you want, whenever you want. This will also allow you to brush and floss normally without having to learn any new techniques or buy a special toothbrush. Overall, Invisalign is significantly more comfortable than braces. There are no brackets to cause abrasion or discomfort in the mouth. It’s smooth, easy, and effective.
The Invisalign process begins by taking an impression of your mouth. While most orthodontics offices will take an impression of your mouth using a poly-vinyl siloxane based impression material; Braces and Invisalign in Orange County does not use this older method. We use the state-of-the-art iTero Digital Impression Scanner to make the more accurate impressions of your teeth without having to gooey impression material that can make some patients gag.
