The perfect orthodontic option for anyone interested in straightening their teeth without going the traditional braces route, the Invisalign system includes a series of clear, personalized aligner trays that gradually move your teeth into their ideal position. At San Diego Dental Specialists, this incredibly popular orthodontic system has been an ideal smile-straightening option for many of our patients.
How does the Invisalign system work?
Unlike band-and-bracket braces, the Invisalign system utilizes removable and comfortable clear aligner trays that are created for your unique smile with 3D digital scans. Each tray should be worn for approximately two weeks for an average of 22 hours each day, being removed only to eat meals and during daily oral hygiene care. It’s important to note that aligner trays should be brushed and rinsed following each meal to ensure that food particles and/or bacteria buildup are removed.
Is the timeframe for this system comparable to the timeframe for traditional braces?
It depends on your orthodontic needs and the level of straightening you’re looking for. Teeth requiring mild adjustments may be able to see final results in as little as six months, while the timeline for more complex adjustments may be comparable to that of traditional braces.
Is Invisalign treatment more expensive than traditional braces?
While it’s commonly believed that the aesthetic benefits the Invisalign system yields will inevitably result in a higher expense, this isn’t necessarily true. Depending on your smile and overall needs, the cost for this orthodontic option can be similar to what you’d expect to pay for conventional braces.
