Invisalign is the New Clear Invisible Braces for Adults and Teens

If you are considering braces to straighten your teeth, you might want to look into the new Invisalign clear, virtually invisible modern approach to straightening teeth. With the new technology today, there is no reason to have a mouth full of metal anymore. Here is one our clients at The Vartanian Dental Group in Mission viejo, who elceted the invisalign technology to straighten his teeth. Look at how amazing this looks. You can’t even see it. It is virtually invisible!

When I was teen, I was lucky to have most of my teeth come in and most of them came in straight. There was this one tooth in front, the one on top just left of the front two teeth, was sticking out at a 45 degree angle. At that time, my only choices was braces or a retainer. I chose the retainer. As you know, it’s a hard plastic thing that goes in your mouth with metal that wraps around the front. In my case, the first few months were extremely uncomfortable with this tight feeling in my jaw all the time. I wish I had Invisalign as an option back then, but that was the 80’s and here we are some 30 years later with this new amazing technology. Check it out!

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. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.

Your doctor will take x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth, which Invisalign will use to create a digital 3-D image of them. From these images your doctor will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth, and tell you the approximate length of treatment. Using the same technology your doctor will be able to show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment.  While every case is unique to each patient, treatment typically takes approximately a year for adults. For teens the length of treatments is comparable to that of braces.

From there, you will receive your custom Aligners and based on your customized treatment plan, a series of molds will be created as the teeth slowly move into the proper position. A new Aligner is usually given to the patient every two weeks and you will wear them for about 20-22 hours a day for best results.
