This course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step-by-step, until you have a more beautiful smile.
Dr. Tran, an Invisalign® dentist in Redwood City, often recommends an Invisalign® procedure rather than traditional braces. Invisalign ® is the breakthrough technology that lets you have the smile you’ve always wanted without the hassle of braces. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign ® straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step-by-step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike conventional braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual. An average Invisalign ® course of treatment takes about a year.
Invisalign® Teen is the only clear orthodontic aligner therapy designed to address the unique concerns of treating non-adult comprehensive patients. Because aligners are removable, patients can continue to eat their favorite foods and brush and floss normally to help keep teeth and gums healthy.
Invisalign® Teen has all the features of Invisalign® Full, plus:
- Compliance indicators track the patient’s approximate wear time and help provide reassurance for parents that the teen is being compliant.
- Six free individual replacement aligners are included with Invisalign® Teen to replace lost or broken aligners.
- Many teens present for treatment with erupting permanent dentition, so Invisalign® Teenhas been engineered with a feature to help prevent supra eruption of the second molars.
Invisalign® is clear and practically invisible.
- Unobtrusive in business meetings or social gatherings
- No metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth
- Most people won’t notice you’re wearing aligners
Over one million patients, many whom are adults, have benefited from Invisalign®. Invisalign® offers the clinical outcomes people want, all with a removable appliance that’s virtually undetectable when worn. It’s an ideal solution for the majority of adults.
Aligners are clear and nearly invisible. If you’ve ever seen clear teeth-whitening trays, that should give you a good idea of what the aligners look like. Invisalign® aligners are custom-made to fit and move your teeth.
Each time you change to a new aligner, there may be some temporary discomfort while your teeth adjust to their new position. This is completely normal, and is a good sign that the treatment is working.
Some people are affected more than others, but most adjust in a short period of time to the feeling of the aligners and do not have permanent changes in their speech.
Invisalign® only works while you’re wearing the aligners. It’s recommended that you wear your aligners full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.
This varies person to person and depends on the outcome of the treatment. Some patients might need a positioner, or conventional retainer. Other patients might need a clear plastic retainer.
