Invisalign® Better than Wires and Brackets

If you have been thinking about braces, talk to Saddleback Dentistry about Invisalign® clear plastic aligners.

Clear removable braces are getting better and better. That means most people are great candidates for clear plastic braces.

Better than Braces

Clear plastic aligners are better than braces for those who are good candidates. Of course, you must be monitored by a dentist for this type of procedure.

If you follow the Saddleback dental blog you will recall that DIY dental treatments are not a good idea.

The world is a small place when it comes to products and services. That means anyone can order professional dental products, such as clear removable braces, without consulting a cosmetic dentist. This is a recipe for disaster and must be avoided at all costs.

Attempting to straighten teeth based on a few photos and an impression that you make yourself isn’t the best way to go about orthodontic care in Laguna Hills. In fact, it could do just the opposite making your smile worse than it was to begin with.

Invisalign®-What the Pro’s Use

Invisalign® has been around for decades and is the most well-known product when it comes to clear removable braces.

Excellent for slightly tipped and tilted teeth you won’t believe the results with the world’s most popular professional teeth straightening system.

Because the aligners are made from thin clear plastic no one will know you are having the procedure except for you and Dr. Ryan Conkle and Dr. Dean Garcia.

Other Invisalign® Advantages Include:

  • More comfortable than wires and brackets
  • Safer than conventional braces
  • Easier to brush and floss
  • Better oral health
  • No broken wires

How Does Invisalign® Work?

Dr. Dean Garcia and Dr. Ryan Conkle explain that Invisalign® works by gently moving teeth back into position. This may take as little as six months, or up to 12. It really depends on the patient.

With that being said, old school wires and brackets sometimes have to be worn for two years. In addition, wires can break causing damage to other parts of your mouth.

Invisalign® is the safe alternative providing you with a comfortable experience. All you have to do is wear your aligners 22 hours every day.

You will take them out when you clean your teeth and have something to eat. Keep in mind that this is the most important part of treatment.

If you do not wear your braces 22 hours every day you will not see the results that you had hoped for. Your cosmetic dentist in Laguna Hills won’t either.

Invisalign® the Best Option for Teeth

Invisalign® is by far the best solution for mild to moderate crooked teeth. All you have to do is read the reviews and you’ll quickly learn that one of the oldest removable tooth straightening systems is also the most reliable.

Don’t DIY Clear Braces

While you may be attracted to the DIY versions that you find online, those clear braces could actually do more harm than good. In addition, they could cause permanent damage.

Sending in a picture of your teeth and an impression isn’t the best way to order customized clear plastic braces. Furthermore, your progress isn’t monitored by a cosmetic dentist in Laguna Hills.

As a result, this could have harmful effects, especially if you weren’t a good candidate for removable braces in the first place.

What is Invisalign®?

According to Saddleback Dentistry, Invisalign® uses a serious of clear plastic aligners that are custom made to gradually move your teeth into the desired position.

Depending on your situation you will be prescribed a number of aligners that you’ll replace every seven to 14 days. This is dependent on your Invisalign® blueprint.

During your treatment time you’ll wear your clear plastic braces for 22 hours every day.  The only time you’ll remove them is when you eat a meal and brush and floss your teeth. It is imperative that you stay the course. If you don’t, your treatment time might be impeded.

Treatment time for Invisalign® can take as little as six weeks. However, most patients see final results in 12 to 18 months. This is much quicker than conventional wires and brackets. Standard braces can take up to 24 months.

Is Everyone a Good Candidate?

While most people with mild to moderate crooked teeth are great candidates for Invisalign®, patients with severe over or under bites or wide spaces between teeth may fare better with conventional braces.

In addition, people who have pegged teeth or teeth that are too short may not be suitable for clear braces either.

What is Invisalign® Good For?

  • Crowding
  • Spacing
  • Mild to Moderate Bite Problems
  • Underbites
  • Overbites
  • Crossbites
  • Openbites
  • Small Spaces Between Teeth
  • Rotated Teeth
