What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear aligners customized to solve your unique dental problems. Clear braces work by applying gentle pressure to your teeth and shifting them gradually into the optimal position. You will change to a new set of aligners after every two weeks and continue the treatment process until you have 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 objective and preventing further dental issues from forming. We begin all of our treatments with a thorough dental exam. Our dentist will gently inspect your gums, jaws, and teeth to verify you qualify for invisible braces. If you have any underlying issues, we will 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 our dental practice in Burlingame, we begin our Invisalign process by thoroughly assessing your oral health to determine if you're a good candidate for clear braces. Once you've been qualified, we work with a trusted lab where your custom aligners are fabricated. Our dentist will sit down with you to 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 follow-up appointments for you, usually every 4-6 weeks, to check on your progress 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. You must wear your trays for at least 22 hours a day for optimal results, and only remove them to eat or drink and brush or floss your teeth. Due to 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 their clear aligners for the recommended amount of time. We may refer children and teens to a trusted orthodontist to treat complex bite and alignment concerns.
Invisible Braces FAQs
Our team enjoys educating our patients on oral health and why the treatments we recommend are effective. This is why we encourage you to share your questions and concerns, and we are happy to provide the answers and information you need to make a wise decision regarding your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about Invisalign clear aligners.
No. Invisalign clear aligners are removable, so you will simply take them out any time you eat or drink. It's vital to remove the invisible braces prior to consuming food because the force of chewing will damage the aligners, and even liquids will stain the trays.
You can clean your aligners with approved cleaners. There are a variety of name-brand and over-the-counter cleaners that are appropriate to use for your trays. Our dentist will discuss your options and give you tips and instructions on how often to clean your custom aligners.
Your treatment timeline will depend on the severity of your misalignment and how faithful you are in following our dentist's instructions and wearing the aligners for the required 22 hours each day. In general, the treatment time for Invisalign ranges from 6-24 months and, in many cases, is a shorter timeframe than traditional braces.
