Correcting your smile with orthodontic treatment can renew your look and give you the smile you have always dreamed of. However, invisaligntraditional orthodontic braces may hinder your look in the meantime. Luckily, Invisalign can give you the smile you desire without compromising your style. Find out more about Invisalign with Dr. Richard Hamaty in Yorba Linda, CA.

What is Invisalign? 
Invisalign is a revolutionary way to straighten your smile without the hassle of metal brackets or wires which permanently attach to your teeth. In orthodontic treatment, slight pressure placed onto the teeth moves them into their new positions. Invisalign’s clear plastic aligner trays use the same principal as traditional braces to move the teeth, but do so in a new and improved way. Additionally, Invisalign is completely removable, giving you the freedom to eat the foods you love and care for your teeth exactly as you would pre-braces, without adding any extra steps to your dental hygiene routine.

How can Invisalign help me? 
Traditional braces straighten misaligned teeth and treat various bite issues. Invisalign treats these same abnormalities, including:

  • overbite
  • underbite
  • cross bite
  • open bite
  • overcrowded teeth
  • under crowded teeth

Invisalign Treatment in Yorba Linda, CA 
Your Invisalign journey begins with a consultation with your orthodontist. At this consultation, you will work together to gather your family and dental history, assess the severity of your orthodontic problems, and, ultimately, determine if Invisalign is the best treatment option for you. If it is your best treatment option, your dentist will take a 3D scan of your mouth. The scan imports into a computer program which turns it into a 3D model of the teeth, eliminating the need for a physical impression.

Invisalign’s dental laboratory uses the model to design and create a plan for your aligner trays. Before creating the actual trays, the laboratory will send you a video showing you exactly how your teeth will move throughout treatment. After you and your dentist approve the video, you will receive your aligner trays and wear one after another for about two weeks each until you complete the series.
