Would you like to straighten crooked teeth or correct spacing issues or bite problems? Invisalign, a discreet orthodontic treatment offered by your Yorba Linda, CA, dentist, Dr. Richard Hamaty of Dentistry by Richard Hamaty, may be the perfect solution for you.
Invisalign subtly improves your smile
One of the most popular features of Invisalign is the appearance of the aligner trays worn over the teeth. The snug-fitting trays are made of clear, comfortable plastic, making them practically invisible. If you've put off straightening your smile because you didn't want to draw attention to your smile during treatment, you'll appreciate the discreet appearance of the trays.
Gentle pressure realigns your teeth
You'll receive a series of aligner trays that realign teeth by exerting constant pressure on them. Each set in the series is specially designed for you using Invisalign's CAD/CAM software. During a visit to the Yorba Linda dental office, your dentist takes digital images, impressions, and X-rays of your teeth. The 3D image created by combining these digital files can be manipulated and is used to plot your treatment.
Invisalign offers unprecedented convenience
Your aligner trays are removable and are taken out when you eat, drink, and brush and floss your teeth. Thanks to this feature, you won't have to learn complicated new oral hygiene routines or avoid certain foods during your treatment.
Invisalign aligner trays are usually worn for about 22 hours a day, but there are a few exceptions to the usual wearing schedule. If you'll be playing sports, going out for a special dinner, or attending a wedding or other event around Yorba Linda, you can leave your trays at home for a few hours.
Invisalign is a good choice for many issues
Invisalign is effective for teenagers and adults and improves a variety of orthodontic issues. It's a good option if your teeth are crooked or crowded or you have gaps between teeth. The aligner trays also correct mild-to-moderate bite problems, including underbites, overbites, crossbites, and open bites.
However, metal braces may be recommended if you have a severe bite problem or complicated orthodontic issues.
