What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear aligners customized to solve your unique dental problems. It works by applying gentle pressure to your teeth and shifting them gradually into the optimal position. You will change to a new aligner after every two weeks and continue the treatment process until you've achieved your desired results. Our dentist will walk you through the entire treatment process, explaining what to expect every step of the way.
What Dental Issues Can Invisalign Fix?
At Burlingame Dentist, our team is committed to helping you accomplish your smile objectives and preventing further dental issues from forming. We begin all of our treatments with a thorough dental exam. Our dentist will thoroughly inspect your gums, jaws, and teeth to ensure you qualify for Invisalign treatment. If you have any underlying issues, we'll recommend a treatment plan to restore you to optimal oral health before beginning Invisalign treatment.
Some of the common problems Invisalign can solve include:
- Unwanted Gaps
- Crooked Teeth
- Crowded Teeth
What to Expect With Invisalign in Burlingame
At Burlingame Dentist, we begin our Invisalign process by thoroughly assessing your oral health to determine if you're a good candidate. Once you've been qualified, we work with a trusted lab where your custom aligners are fabricated. Our dentist will discuss what you will experience during your Invisalign journey.
Once your aligners are ready, you will come back to our Burlingame office to pick up your clear trays. At that time, our team will review the instructions for wearing your aligners and what results to expect from week to week. Our dentist will schedule you for follow-up appointments, usually every 4-6 weeks, to check how you're progressing and make any necessary adjustments.
Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
You need to be a good candidate for Invisalign to achieve successful and lasting results. Most importantly, you must wear your trays for at least 22 hours a day for optimal results, only removing them for brushing and flossing or when eating and drinking. Because of these requirements, our dentist usually recommends this treatment to adults and responsible teens who will follow the guidelines.
By strictly following the treatment requirements, you can reduce the need for retreatment and prevent relapse. Generally, younger children may find it challenging to wear Invisalign aligners for the recommended amount of time. We may refer them to a trusted orthodontist to treat complex bite and alignment concerns, as well as teens whose cases are more complex.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Aside from personalization and convenience, there are several reasons to choose Invisalign. This innovative orthodontic solution provides numerous advantages over traditional metal braces. Some of the advantages of Invisalign include:
Removable: You can easily remove your clear aligners, allowing for easy cleaning and eliminating the need to change your diet during treatment.
Comfort: Invisalign lacks sharp metal edges or surfaces that can irritate or injure the inside of your lips or cheeks.
Aesthetics: Invisalign is a discreet treatment that preserves your natural aesthetics with practically invisible trays, making them almost indistinguishable from your smile!
How To Care For Your Aligners
It's essential that you properly care for your aligners to achieve the best results possible. Clean them regularly and remember to remove them while eating snacks or food to avoid damaging them. Afterward, clean your teeth and your aligners before reinserting them. In case you lose a tray or a set of aligners, wear the previous set to avoid losing the progress you've already made until our dentist can provide you with a replacement set.
