Invisalign® Clear Aligners in Carson, CA

An Invisible Alternative to Metal Braces

Patients with misaligned jaws, underbites, overbites, or over spaced teeth are typically recommended braces to achieve a straight smile. However, many patients avoid braces due to the hassles associated with them. 

Metal braces can be uncomfortable and are often considered unprofessional looking. Restrictions like these mean that traditional braces might not be the best option for everyone. Over the years, advancements in dental technology have provided an alternative solution to misaligned teeth. 

Discover why patients love Invisalign clear aligners and how they can help you achieve your dream smile.  

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners are comfortable, easy to clean, relatively low maintenance, faster working, and best of all, almost invisible. Now you can address issues with tooth and jaw misalignment without anyone noticing. 

While you’re wearing them, Invisalign clear aligners work to straighten your teeth using patented SmartTrack technology. Invisalign aligners only need to be taken out when you eat, drink something other than water, brush, and floss.

If you want to realign your teeth without the hassles of metal braces, then Invisalign may be right for you. 

The Benefits of Invisalign 

Invisalign clear aligners have distinct advantages over traditional metal braces such as:

  • Removable
  • Clear appearance
  • Convenient
  • Comfortable
  • Easy to maintain
  • Shorter treatment time
  • No dietary restrictions

With Invisalign clear aligners, no one will see a mouth full of metal when you eat, laugh, drink, and smile. They’re safe enough to wear during less intense physical activity and comfortable enough that after the first week of initial soreness, you’ll barely notice them. 

The Invisalign Treatment Process 

Initial Consultation

Before you receive your Invisalign clear aligners, you’ll need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Aluning so she can determine if Invisalign is right for you. During your consultation, Dr. Aluning will examine your mouth, review your oral history, and discuss your smile goals with you to determine your candidacy for dental implants. 

Once Invisalign is determined as the best orthodontic treatment for you, the blueprints for your Invisalign clear aligners will be crafted using the iTero® Intraoral Scanner. Our revolutionary scanners produce high quality 3D images of your mouth which are used to map out the path your teeth will follow during Invisalign treatment. Using iTero, you’ll be able to see the progression of your smile and the outcome of your treatment with Invisalign. 

Aligner Wear

Invisalign clear aligners use SmartTrack, a patented material that’s snug enough to control the movement and position of your teeth while also being comfortable and easy to remove. The material predictably controls tooth movement to properly align your smile. 

To achieve your desired results, you’ll need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day. You can remove them when eating or drinking but be sure to always place them back in after. You’ll receive a new set of aligners once every two weeks, with each set being designed to shift certain teeth into proper position. 

Smile Freely

Invisalign treatment can take anywhere from 12 to 18 months to complete, depending on your individual needs. However, it’s common to start seeing results within the first few weeks. Dr. Aluning will monitor your progress and make any adjustments as needed. Once your Invisalign treatment is done, you can start enjoying all of the amazing benefits of a beautiful, healthy smile.
