A BEAUTIFUL SMILE WITH
Invisalign Invisible Braces
Our Invisalign treatments are a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth, using a series of custom-made, clear, plastic aligners. This is a clear choice for people who want a beautiful smile but don’t want the “metal mouth” experience. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners will not disrupt your lifestyle, and most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
San Diego Dentist, Paige Woods, provides general and cosmetic dentistry services with a holistic, conservative approach to treatment. If you want to transform your smile without the pain and inconvenience of metal wires and bands, consult with Dr. Woods about teeth straightening with Invisalign in San Diego.
HOW INVISALIGN WORKS
Each clear Invisalign aligner is fabricated from proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material, custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth. These aligners are engineered to apply the right amount of force to move your teeth slightly as needed – vertically, horizontally, or rotating.
You will follow a custom treatment plan designed by Dr. Woods, typically changing to the next set of aligners every week. Ideally, you will wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day, taking them out when you eat, brush, or floss. Over the course of treatment, your teeth will gently shift into their proper place and position, gradually transforming your smile.
WHAT DENTAL PROBLEMS CAN BE TREATED WITH INVISALIGN?
Our San Diego Invisalign treatment has been clinically proven to be effective for teeth straightening in a wide range of cases, with up to 50% faster treatment times than traditional braces. Dental issues doctors commonly treat with Invisalign include:
- Crowded teeth: This is a common problem, when there is not enough room in the jaw for all the teeth to fit properly. If left untreated, overcrowding may get worse over time and lead to plaque accumulation, tooth decay, and increased risk of periodontal disease.
- Overbite: Typically a result of genetics, overdevelopment of the bone supporting the teeth, or poor oral habits, overbite occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It can cause painful joint and jaw problems, gum issues and irritation, and wear on the lower teeth.
- Underbite: This occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the upper teeth. It usually results from underdevelopment of the upper jaw, overdevelopment of the lower jaw, or both. It can also be caused by missing teeth. Underbite prevents the upper teeth and molars from functioning normally, which can lead to wear of the teeth and problems with the jaw and joints.
- Gapped teeth: Abnormal continued growth of the jawbone or missing teeth can cause spacing issues and gaps between the teeth. As the gums are unprotected in the gaps, this condition can lead to gum problems and increased risk of periodontal disease.
