Invisalign Braces For San Diego Residents

Invisalign Tray Invisalign braces are a much improved way of straightening teeth in comparison to the old-fashioned metal braces of the past. This method uses clear aligners made especially for you. The comfortable and smooth trays go right over your teeth, steadily but gently shifting them into proper alignment. The final positioning is mapped out in the beginning, so there are no surprises.

Additionally, there are no metal brackets to cut your mouth and no wires that have to be tightened. Simply change to new aligners every two weeks until your teeth are in the desired position. What could be simpler? There’s no more sensible or less complicated route to a beautiful smile.

Crooked teeth, malocclusion, underbite, overbite, gaps and crowding are all treatable with these innovative, Invisalign braces.

Invisalign Versus Traditional Braces

Invisalign clear braces are a socially acceptable choice when traditional metal braces just won’t do. That makes them perfect for older people wanting straight teeth, working professionals and those who are dating. Plus, high school students who turn to Invisalign won’t have to go through the embarrassment and stigma associated with metal braces.

Metal braces are ugly, painful and can severely impact eating, kissing and other day-to-day activities, plus your social life is impacted because braces aren’t convenient in every situation.

For San Diego dental patients, turning to Dr. Paige Woods for Invisalign braces means you get warm and attentive service and a no-hassle approach to dentistry along with the straight teeth you desire.

Benefits Of Invisalign

When you choose Invalign instead of traditional braces, you benefit in the following ways:

  • Ease of Use: There’s very little impact on your daily life. The aligners are comfortable, so wearing them the recommended 20 to 22 hours each day is easy and you probably won’t feel any discomfort.
  • Ease of Cleaning: Since the aligners can be removed, cleaning is a snap. It’s also extremely important for your dental health, but it’s easy and quick when you follow the provided instructions.
  • Comfortable Eating: There are no wires or brackets with Invisalign from your San Diego dentist, so you don’t have to worry about stuck food or a limited diet. You can simply remove the trays while eating and eat whatever you like.
  • Sports Are Okay: Metal braces are a bad idea if you play contact sports because of the possibility of cutting your mouth if you’re hit. And if your sport requires a mouth guard, that’s fine. You can take the trays out while using the mouth guard.
  • Biocompatible And Holistic: The aligners are made from medical-grade BPA- free material, so they’re completely acceptable as part of biocompatible dentistry and holistic dentistry. Additionally, getting your teeth into proper alignment actually improves your overall dental health and is an important part of the minimal approach taken by holistic medicine.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign Placement It all starts with an initial consultation with Dr. Woods. He’ll make sure Invisalign is right for you, then he’ll do the following for you:

  1. Make a 3D image of your teeth. This includes x-rays, impressions and photos. From this information a precise plan for you is created. Dr. Woods will also be able to use this information to show you how your teeth will look as the process moves along.
  2. Provide your aligners and a plan. You’ll get smooth, fitted aligners to wear every day. You can remove them when you eat or brush your teeth. They’re nearly invisible and few people will notice them. As you wear them, your teeth gently shift. Every two week, you move to new aligners to continue the straightening process.
  3. Reveal your new smile. After the treatment plan ends, you’ll see a new and improved version of your smile. For most adults, treatment can take about a year. For teens, the length required is about the same as for traditional braces, but you’ll see your improving smile all along.
