Are you hesitant about getting your teeth straightened because you may have to wear thick and obvious braces? Well, today you have an option to do without metal braces and choose an alternate teeth straightening treatment – one that isn’t as visible to as traditional braces.

Have you considered getting Invisalign in La Habra? Invisalign is an orthodontic aligner manufactured by Align Technology, Invisalign is a transparent teeth-straightening tool that is safe to use, comfortable to wear, and practically invisible when worn.

Visit Smooth Dental Group at our La Habra dental clinic for Invisalign.

HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK?

Invisalign aligners are designed to push your teeth back into the desired alignment when they experience alignment issues. The Invisalign exerts pressure gently to slowly and carefully re-align your teeth. Over the course of a few weeks after fitting, you’ll begin to notice that your teeth appear straighter and help your smile look significantly better.

Typically, dental care patients are asked to wear the Invisalign aligners for anywhere between 12 and 18 months, after which they are removed.

IS INVISALIGN SAFE TO USE?

Invisalign trays are made of SmartTrack® thermoplastic material, which is a type of BPA-free polyurethane resin. They are compatible with the human body and completely safe to use. Additionally, unlike traditional braces, which can sometimes hurt your teeth and gums, Invisalign aligners are soft and gentle on your teeth.

Also, Invisalign aligners can be removed for a bit when you have a special event to attend or for eating. This makes Invisalign very comfortable and safe to use.

HOW WE FIT YOU FOR INVISALIGN AT LA HABRA CLINIC

At Smooth Dental Group, we start with a consultation to check the type of malocclusion you present. While Invisalign in La Habra is an excellent treatment for most alignment issues, it may not be the right one if you have very severe dental alignment problems.

Once we understand your dental care needs, we take measurements of your teeth to customize the Invisalign trays for you. Our La Habra dentists use a combination of X-rays, dental scans and photographs to get the correct dimensions for your trays. It can take a few days for your Invisalign trays to be ready.

Once they’re ready, we call you in for a fitting. Small attachments that are practically invisible are attached to your teeth, so they can hold your Invisalign trays in place. Once the trays are fitted, our dentists check to make sure you feel comfortable and are able to speak and chew with ease.

POST-INVISALIGN CARE

We may ask you to come back for a check-up a few weeks after the fitting to make sure the Invisalign trays are fitted correctly. Any adjustments to be made are carried out during this time. Your teeth may feel a bit sore and tight due to the Invisalign aligners. But this will subside over the course of the next few weeks. Our dentists will also give you detailed instructions on how to clean your Invisalign aligners, how to store them when you’re not using them and how to manage your teeth as they straighten.

If you have any questions about Invisalign or teeth straightening, feel free to reach out to us. We look forward to helping you regain your beautiful smile.
