Invisalign in Rancho Bernardo
Perfectly aligned teeth are essential for a perfect smile, as well as for good chewing and proper dental care. Few people have straight teeth and a good bite. If you are struggling with crooked teeth, but you do not feel comfortable wearing traditional wired braces, the Invisalign clear braces are an alternative to consider.
Invisalign represents the most modern and safe method of teeth straightening. With coming of Invisalign clear braces, people no longer have to witness the social embarrassment of the metal wires protruding from the teeth. They are made of plastic or acrylic, are transparent and are custom-made to fit your teeth. The treatment involves wearing the clear brace all day long, for at least ten months and up to 2 years.
How it works
Invisalign is only available in the dental office and can only be fitted after a dental examination. Invisalign clear braces are customized using a computer to match the treatment. A 3D model is generated to match the exact design of your patient’s mouth. The tray is made which determines the crooked teeth that need to move towards a standard position. The first brace is used for 20 hours every day, for two weeks. After two weeks, a new impression is taken for a new brace. The number of braces used in a treatment varies between 18 and 30, depending on the teeth’s appearance and desired results.

Who qualifies for Invisalign clear braces
Invisalign is only recommended for teenagers and adults. Children cannot benefit from this product because their jaws are still growing, and the Invisalign clear braces may interfere with their development. Also, for best results, it is advisable that the Invisalign clear braces are fitted only on mildly or moderately crooked teeth. If you have enough interdental space to support the tooth alignment, Invisalign will yield perfect results. When the interdental space is missing, and the teeth are extremely crooked, it is advisable to ask the dentist for other teeth straightening alternatives.
