At Dr. Clementine C. Ignacio, DMD, we offer Invisalign, a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that provides a discreet and virtually invisible way to straighten teeth, eliminating the need for traditional metal braces. This innovative system employs a series of clear, removable aligners custom-fitted to a patient's teeth. Over time, these aligners gently and progressively shift the teeth into their desired positions, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing and properly aligned smile.
Invisalign provides a comfortable, convenient, and aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional braces, allowing individuals to enjoy the benefits of orthodontic correction while maintaining a natural and inconspicuous appearance throughout their treatment.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, custom-made aligners that gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. These aligners are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and removable, allowing you to maintain your oral hygiene easily.
The process begins with a consultation, where a 3D scan or impressions of your teeth are taken. Using advanced computer technology, a precise treatment plan is developed, outlining the gradual movements of your teeth. Based on this plan, a series of clear aligners are fabricated. You will then wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you progress through the series, your teeth gradually move into the correct alignment. You will also have regular checkups with our orthodontist in Anaheim to monitor your progress, ensuring the treatment stays on track.
Invisalign provides a discreet, convenient, and effective way to achieve a beautifully aligned smile without traditional braces.
The Benefits of Invisalign
With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss. This means you can eat whatever you want without worrying about food getting stuck in your brackets or wires. You can also brush and floss your teeth normally without working around brackets or wires.
Metal braces can cause discomfort and pain, especially when the wires rub against your gums. In contrast, Invisalign aligners in Anaheim are made of smooth plastic that won’t irritate your mouth. Plus, there are no metal brackets or wires that can poke or scratch the inside of your mouth.
Improved Oral Hygiene
With traditional metal braces, brushing and flossing your teeth can be a hassle. Food particles can easily get stuck in the brackets and wires, increasing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. However, since you can remove your Invisalign aligners to allow you to brush and floss, you can maintain better oral hygiene during treatment.
More Convenient Diet
With braces, you must avoid certain foods that could damage your brackets and wires. But with Invisalign, you can eat whatever you want without worrying about damaging your appliances. Remove your aligners before eating and put them back in when you’re done.
