Clear aligners are made of BPA-free plastic and fit snugly over the teeth, similar to a mouthguard. Multiple aligners are worn during the treatment period before the improved positioning of your teeth is assessed.
There are many benefits to choosing aligners including:
1. Removable: One of the main benefits of aligners is that they are removable. This allows you to take them out to eat or to brush and floss your teeth.
2. Comfortable: Aligners are also made of smooth plastic, so they won't cause irritation to your mouth and gums. This is especially helpful if you have a sensitive mouth.
3. Discreet: Aligners are clear, so most people won't even notice you are wearing them.
4. Effective: Aligners are also very efficient at straightening your teeth. They move your teeth in small increments, so your teeth won't move into their correct position all at once.
5. Affordable: Finally, aligners are also very cost-effective. They allow you to straighten your teeth without the cost and pain of metal braces.
The Invisalign® clear aligners are a popular choice for those self-conscious about the appearance of braces. They are removable, allowing patients to brush, floss and eat whatever they'd like. With this flexible option, patients don't have to worry about food getting caught in brackets or wires.
Invisalign® aligners are custom-made for each patient, using 3D computer imaging technology. Each aligner gradually moves the teeth, straightening your smile without uncomfortable brackets or wires.
The ClearCorrect® system consists of a series of clear, custom-made aligners. Like the Invisalign® system, ClearCorrect® aligners are removable. The aligners are a comfortable, discreet option to straighten your teeth.
The aligners work by applying gentle pressure to the teeth. This causes the teeth to shift their position, straightening your smile.
Since each patient's needs are different, it is important to schedule an orthodontic consultation to determine the best treatment option for you. During your consultation, the dentist will evaluate your smile, discuss your orthodontic goals, and create a custom treatment plan just for you.
Invisalign in Rocklin, CA, are plastic trays that fit over your teeth to gradually straighten your smile. They are virtually invisible and removable, which allows you to eat the foods you love and clean your teeth normally. Unlike traditional braces, they are smooth and won't irritate your cheeks or gums. Many patients find that Invisalign aligners are comfortable and easy to use. The trays are also smooth to the touch and won't cut your mouth like metal brackets and wires do.
At our office, we customize each patient's treatment plan based on their alignment needs and lifestyle habits. However, most Invisalign treatment plans are similar. Each plan consists of a series of clear aligners that will gradually shift your teeth into place over the course of several months or shorter, depending on the severity of your case.
During your consultation, your dentist will evaluate your smile and talk to you about your goals. They will use this information to determine if Invisalign is right for you or if another treatment option would be best for your needs. If Invisalign in Rocklin, CA, is recommended, they will then begin crafting your custom treatment plan. We will then take impressions of your teeth and record any necessary information to send to the lab where your aligner trays will be crafted. Once your aligners are ready, we will make sure they fit correctly before sending them home with you to begin your treatment.
When you receive your aligners, make sure to wear them for at least 22 hours per day. The only times we recommend removing your aligners are to eat, drink, brush, and floss your teeth. As you wear each set of Invisalign in Rocklin, CA, it will gently move your teeth closer and closer to their ideal position. You will switch aligners every week or two to gradually straighten your smile. Most patients achieve their final desired results within nine to 15 months. By the end of your treatment, you will have a beautiful new smile and improved oral health!
When your teeth are severely misaligned, it can be painful and difficult to bite and chew food. If you straighten your teeth with Invisalign, you'll not only be straightening the appearance of your smile, but you'll also be correcting the alignment of your bite as well. This can improve your overall oral health and ensure that you are able to eat all of your favorite foods again without being in pain.
