Invisalign® Clear Braces

Invisalign® Gardena, CA

Invisalign® has revolutionized orthodontics, offering people a cleaner, less invasive way to straighten their teeth while continuing their daily lives nearly uninterrupted.

With Invisalign®, you can get the smile you’ve always wanted without the appearance of metal braces.

What Are Invisalign®? Clear Aligners?

Invisalign® is a form of braces. Unlike traditional braces that place brackets, wires and elastic ties on the teeth, Invisalign® uses clear tray aligners.

Invisalign® clear aligners are molded from plastic, removable, and custom-made for each individual. When worn, they gently apply pressure on the teeth to move them slowly into their ideal position.

How Does Invisalign® Treatment Work?

After having a consultation with your orthodontist, we will take impressions of your mouth. These impressions are used to create the unique tray aligners for your treatment.

Invisalign® treatment uses a series of aligners that must be replaced about every two weeks, with each one feeling slightly different than the last as they continually shift and realign your teeth.

The aligner trays must be worn for 20-22 hours every day for effective results, but they can be removed when eating, drinking, brushing, flossing and even for special occasions as wearers see fit.

What Issues Can Invisalign® Aligners Treat?

Invisalign® clear aligners can be used to treat the following issues:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Open Bite

Keep in mind, that even though Invisalign® can treat these common issues, it depends on the severity of your particular case and how many of issues are in need of fixing. A consultation with our orthodontist is the only way to know for sure if this treatment system will effectively straighten your smile.

Are Invisalign® Aligners as Effective As Traditional Braces?

Yes. Invisalign® treatment successfully straightens teeth and provides results that last a long time. In certain cases, Invisalign® can be even more effective because of the all-around force the aligner trays exert on the entire tooth.

What Are the Advantages of Invisalign® Clear Braces?

The biggest advantage of Invisalign® aligners is that they are a virtually invisible form of braces, but there are many other things patients love about this treatment including that they are:

  • Removable: Invisalign® must be worn for most of the day, but they can be removed. This allows wearers to eat and drink whatever they want, unlike with traditional braces where sticky and sugary foods can get trapped in the wires.
  • Convenient: There are no brackets and wires, meaning there are fewer times you’ll find yourself in the orthodontist office for adjustments or replacement parts. Patients are actually able to virtually see every stage of their treatment plan too.
  • Comfortable: Invisalign® clear aligners are smooth to wear. There are no metal parts to irritate the sensitive tissue of the cheek or mouth.

Are There Any Disadvantages to Invisalign® Aligners?

While a fantastic option, there are some things to keep in mind about Invisalign® treatment:

  • It can be more expensive than traditional metal braces.
  • They must be worn most of the day. If you are not wearing them the recommended amount of time, you may delay your treatment.

How Long Do I Have to Wear Invisalign® Clear Aligners?

The length of treatment will vary case by case. Minor cases can take as few as 3 months to treat and complex or severe cases can take up to three years. Our orthodontist will go over your unique treatment plan during your initial Invisalign® consultation.

How Much Does Invisalign® Cost?

The price of Invisalign® will depend on your specific treatment needs, but generally starts around $3,000. Dental insurance will usually cover Invisalign® to the same degree that traditional metal braces are covered. Gardena Dental Care offers payment and financing options as well to make sure you receive the dental treatment you need.
