A Guide to Straightening Teeth Comfortably and Conveniently with Clear Dental Aligners

Obtaining a picture-perfect smile is an excellent reason to undergo orthodontic treatment. Still, your bad bite and misaligned teeth may have plagued you for years, but you aren’t willing to do anything about it because of the thought of wearing highly conspicuous traditional metal braces. For adults and teens in this dilemma, Dr. Brianne Luu at Gentle Care Dentistry has a solution for you. Patients looking for a straight, beautiful smile don’t have to wear train track braces. We offer clear aligner treatment to straighten your teeth comfortably and discreetly.

Signs that you need clear aligner treatment

Unlike mail-order clear braces, you must see a dentist to benefit from Invisalign treatment. We will briefly examine your teeth and discuss treatment options. If you are a viable candidate for Invisalign, we will be able to start treatment right away.

Invisalign can address several malocclusion issues, including:

  • Crowded teeth: Overcrowding mars your appearance and increases the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Invisalign shifts each tooth to its own space for better alignment.
  • Gapped teeth: Unwanted spaces in your mouth are unsightly and complicate your oral hygiene. Invisalign moves teeth together to close the unattractive gaps.
  • Bite alignment: Malocclusion describes bite problems, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites. Invisalign corrects traumatic bites for better function.

Is Invisalign right for me? There is only one way to find out. Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Luu. Once we establish your eligibility for clear aligners, we will digitally scan your teeth and begin your treatment plan using cutting-edge software. At our office, you will see your “treatment outcome” even before the actual treatment begins. If you are happy with the preview, the scan is sent electronically to a dental lab to fabricate your customized straightening trays.

How Invisalign works

Clear dental aligners straighten your smile, just like metal braces, by applying controlled pressure on the teeth until they are perfectly aligned. The similarity ends there, though. Instead of metal wires and brackets, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable, and lightweight trays to move your teeth.

You simply start by wearing a set of aligners for just ten days before moving to the next set. By the time you finish the entire series, you will have a straight, beautiful smile. Throughout the treatment, you should wear your aligners for about 20-22 hours daily. Additionally, attend your brief routine dental checkups to ensure your treatment is going according to plan.

Benefits of clear dental aligners

With the many benefits of Invisalign treatment, it’s easy to see why many adults choose it over conventional braces. Invisalign offers multiple benefits, including:

  • Subtle treatment — Invisalign uses minimally invisible trays, meaning coworkers and friends won’t notice you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment.
  • Comfortable — clear braces don’t have sharp edges to irritate your gums and cheeks. Straightening trays provide a comfortable fit and are created from smooth plastic, which is gentle on your soft tissues.
  • Convenient — Invisalign patients require fewer dental visits since no wires can be adjusted. Besides, the retractable nature of Invisalign trays means your dietary and tooth cleaning routines remain unaltered.
