Practically Invisible Clear Braces

How do you feel about the thought of wearing braces? Do you worry about how metal orthodontics will change your appearance during treatment? To address these concerns your team at Dental Associates of Moreno Valley now offers a clear alternative with the Invisalign system. You can enjoy barely noticeable orthodontic treatment.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Instead of the metal brackets and wires commonly employed with traditional braces, Invisalign actually uses a series of clear aligners. The process begins with impression and images taken of your teeth. These materials are sent to an Invisalign lab, where experts fabricate your aligners. Once complete, you will wear them every day for between 20 and 23 hours, removing them only to eat or bush/floss. About every two weeks you will upgrade to a new set as your smile improves.

The Benefits of Clear Braces

Invisalign offers a number of benefits over traditional orthodontics, such as:

  • Barely noticeable treatment
  • Aligners are more comfortable
  • Fewer office visits required
  • No need to change your diet since aligners can be removed
  • Easier time brushing and flossing your teeth
  • Shorter treatment period

Who can Receive Clear Aligners?

Who qualifies for this orthodontic system? We typically recommend Invisalign to patients over the age of 16 who have minor alignment issues. Before deciding we will first examine your smile. We may recommend braces for more serious cases of malocclusion. If you have any questions then we urge you to contact our office today.
