Dentist in Aliso Viejo, CA offers clear braces with Invisalign
Aliso Viejo, California patients who have a misaligned smile may avoid talking to their dentist about having orthodontic work done. This is because they instantly think of metal brackets and wires glued to the teeth for months, sometimes years, to achieve results. Fortunately, there are continued advances in the area of orthodontic work that might eliminate the need for bulky metal appliances. Dr. Claire Cho of the Dental Health and Aesthetics Center encourages patients to ask about clear braces treatment called Invisalign.
Understanding how Invisalign works
Invisalign is sometimes referred to as aligner tray therapy, as it uses clear plastic trays that are worn over the dental arch to gradually reposition teeth into better alignment. This is a process that occurs over several months but achieves similar results as traditional braces in a shorter period of time for most of our patients. In fact, most can improve their smile in less than a year! Invisalign trays are worn for at least 20 hours a day until the entire series has been used, with each tray being worn for two weeks at a time.
What are the benefits of Invisalign treatment?
Many patients choose Invisalign orthodontics for a reason. Invisalign:
- improves oral hygiene, as trays can be removed to brush and floss the teeth
- is a more discreet alternative, often invisible to others when the trays are worn during the day
- offers more food options, allowing patients to continue to eat what they enjoy
- is comfortable with smooth plastic aligners
