Invisalign treatment uses clear, plastic aligners. The aligners are customised for each patient by making a 3d scan of their mouth. Customised aligners are then made to move the teeth in small steps until the correct position is reached.
Metal braces are no longer the only way to get a beautiful, straight smile. Invisalign aligners are the revolutionary orthodontic treatment that allows you to straighten your smile discreetly and comfortably. Our team at Cali Care Dental is happy to offer Invisalign aligners to our adult and teen patients seeking orthodontic treatment. Get the smile you deserve without the pain or embarrassment of metal braces.
Invisalign aligners are made from a BPA-free clear plastic customized to fit over your teeth. They are removable but should be worn for at least 22 hours a day to achieve results. The aligners work like metal braces, applying gentle pressure to shift teeth into the desired alignment. However, there are no brackets or wires on your teeth, only a clear plastic shield. This makes them much more comfortable and almost invisible to others.
While Invisalign was initially designed for adults, this treatment is also available for teens. Invisalign Teen has the same great attributes as adult aligners: they are clean and comfortable. One thing teens appreciate about Invisalign Teen over metal braces is that they can eat whatever they want. However, with Invisalign, you can take out and put back in the aligners to eat, brush and floss.
Invisalign treatment times are typically like braces, ranging from several months to two years, depending on the patient. A new set of aligners are issued every few weeks, and patients become one step closer to aligning the teeth in their desired position.
