Santa Barbara Ventura InvisalignMany would prefer crooked teeth to the fear of wearing metal braces or they believe wearing braces will be uncomfortable.


One solution to this may be found by choosing Invisalign, a solution that renders braces virtually invisible.


Invisalign clear tooth aligners are one of the more popular alternatives for those who find the idea of a mouthful of metal braces and brackets - though effective - too unattractive to commit to.


If you are a candidate for Invisalign you don't have to sacrifice your smile while straightening your teeth. Invisalign incorporates a series of invisible (clear) plastic aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth and are designed to move your teeth gradually into the desired position.


The Invisalign system, involves a detailed treatment plan that determines how each of your aligners will change throughout your program. When you begin treatment, you'll wear each set of aligners in approximately two-week increments. The aligners gently move your teeth into position, and at the end of each two-week period, you "graduate" to the next set of custom aligners.


As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will begin moving, little by little. And you don't have to wait until you complete treatment to see your smile change-you may start seeing positive changes early in the process. You will have occasional checkups-often as little as once every six weeks-in order to gauge your progress. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.


Invisalign aligners are comfortable, low profile, custom-made clear plastic trays and most people may not even know you are wearing them. As your teeth change and your smile improves, you will change aligners regularly, wearing them for 20-22 hours a day.



Advantages over Traditional Braces


Each aligner is only worn for a one to two week time frame, and appointments are only needed every eight to twelve weeks to pick up your next sets of aligners.


Because of the convenience of being able to remove your aligners before each meal, you do not have to worry about the hassle of food getting stuck between your teeth like with traditional braces. Aligners can be removed to eat, drink, or brush your teeth.




Santa Barbara Ventura Invisalign It fits your life.

Sure, Invisalign for teens effectively straightens teeth. It’s designed to custom-fit your teeth and goes with your lifestyle. You also should know Invisalign offers many other benefits that make it a great choice.



Do What You Do

Since Invisalign Teen aligners are comfortable and smooth, it’s easy for you to keep doing the things you want, like football, soccer, field hockey, and basketball. Or play the oboe! Invisalign Teen won’t interrupt your life.



Smile…Often

Invisalign Teen is practically invisible. Most likely, the only way people will know about your treatment is if you tell them. So hang out with your friends, get in photos, and, of course, smile… confidently.



Chow down…Brush…Floss

Because you can take the aligners out, you can brush and floss normally. Plus you can eat whatever you want – pizza, popcorn… Chew gum! That’s right, no forbidden foods.



Comfort

Because Invisalign Teen aligners are made of smooth plastic and move your teeth in small increments, you don’t have the pain that’s often associated with tightening braces. Plus there are no metal wires or brackets to poke, or tear your mouth and gums. Relief!
