Invisalign San Jose, Catalina Payne, DMD
- Invisalign© is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces and uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. In fact, over 70% of all U.S. orthodontists are certified to treat patients with Invisalign©.
How Does Invisalign© Work?
- You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
- As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed.
- You'll visit your orthodontist or dentist about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Ask Dr. Cat?
You'd Be Amazed... The aligners are made through a combination of your orthodontist's or dentist's expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology. Patients Prefer Invisilign to traditional braces. Since your Invisalign San Jose Dentist uses no brackets or wires the Invisalign trays are smooth to the tongue and almost invisible to others. They are especially good for retreatment of lapsed orthodontic cases where the teeth have shifted undesirably after the original treatment was completed. Many times this shifting occurs when patients stop wearing their retainers. Also they are excellent for moving the teeth into a better position before a dentist uses free hand bonding or porcelain veneers to enhance a smile.
