Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth using clear plastic aligners as an alternative to traditional braces. At Alexander & Martin Orthodontics, we have Invisalign aligners made from a clear plastic material and custom-fit to your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can take them out before eating, brushing, and flossing. The aligner trays are worn for 22 hours a day over periods of two weeks. After each two-week period, you exchange your current aligner for the next one in the series. You will continue wearing your aligners until your teeth are in the desired position.
The Invisalign Process
During your initial consultation, our orthodontist in Sacramento, Rocklin, Roseville, CA, will assess your dental condition and discuss your goals to determine whether Invisalign is the right choice for you. If it is, we will use a digital 3D scan of your teeth to create a personalized treatment plan. This plan outlines the gradual movement of your teeth from their current positions to the desired alignment.
Based on your treatment plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners is created using advanced computer technology. Each aligner is designed to fit snugly over your teeth and is worn for approximately two weeks. As you progress through the aligners, your teeth gradually shift into the desired positions. After those two weeks, you'll switch to a new set of aligners according to your treatment plan.
Throughout your Invisalign treatment, you'll have regular checkups with our orthodontist to monitor your progress and ensure your teeth move as planned.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign in Sacramento, CA, are nearly invisible, so no one will notice you wearing them. You can smile with confidence knowing that your orthodontic treatment is not noticeable!
Unlike traditional braces, you can remove the trays to more easily eat, drink, brush, and floss. This makes it easier to maintain your oral hygiene routine during treatment.
There are no metal brackets or wires that could poke you in the mouth or cause discomfort. Instead, the Invisalign is made from smooth plastic that is comfortable to wear.
Since you can remove the trays for easier eating and cleaning, you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your braces. You can also remove them for special occasions like weddings or graduations.
Improved Oral Health
Crooked or crowded teeth are more difficult to clean, leading to tooth decay and gum disease. You can better clean your teeth and prevent these issues by straightening them.
Invisalign has the power to transform not only smiles but also self-confidence. As your teeth gradually shift into alignment, you'll notice improved aesthetics and enhanced oral function, contributing to an overall sense of well-being.
