Uses for Invisalign Clear Orthodontics

Invisalign clear orthodontics is a great alternative to traditional braces. The Manhattan Beach, CA Cosmetic Dentist uses Invisalign clear removable aligners instead of metal and wire used in traditional braces. Invisalign clear braces offer a more comfortable and virtually invisible method for gently straightening your teeth.

How Do Invisalign Clear Braces Work?

We start by taking impressions of your mouth so that we can create a clear BPA-free plastic aligner. This aligner is designed to fit your teeth like a mouth guard. Unlike a mouth guard, however, the Invisalign aligner is designed to gently move your teeth into the proper position.

Approximately every two weeks you remove the current aligner and move to the next set that has been carefully crafted to shift your teeth gently to the next stage in the straightening process. You will make visits to our cosmetic dentist office about every six weeks so we can check on your progress.

But the beauty of Invisalign is that you will see the improvement every time you step up to a new set of aligners. It usually takes about a year for Invisalign aligners to gradually shift your teeth to achieve a straight and beautiful smile.

Invisalign aligners correct nearly any adjustment issue you may have with your teeth. The Manhattan Beach, CA Cosmetic Dentist is an approved Invisalign provider, and patients choose the system to correct issues like the following:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbites/Underbites
  • Overcrowding
  • Spaces/gaps in teeth

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Discreet: Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. The casual observer will not notice any difference when you’re wearing your aligner.

Removable: You can remove your aligners when you eat, brush your teeth, or any other time that is necessary.

Comfortable: Since Invisalign aligners are made of a soft, flexible material, they are much less likely to create any irritation to your mouth.

The Invisalign system is a perfect choice to fit into your busy lifestyle while providing the straight, beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of.
