Invisalign is an FDA-approved alternative to traditional braces that uses custom-made clear aligners to progressively straighten your teeth.
These aligners are removable and should be replaced every other week to make sure that they stay in sync with your treatment’s progress.
Invisalign is a reasonably straightforward treatment, though you should schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Keihani to make sure that the orthodontic work you need isn’t too complicated for Invisalign.
During your consultation, Dr. Keihani and his team digitally map your teeth to get a clear image of the work you need. They then use this image to create mockups of what your teeth will look like at every step of the process.
If you’re satisfied with the projected results, Dr. Keihani creates your custom aligners. You should wear them 20-22 hours every day until you’ve reached your projects end goal.
Your Invisalign treatment can last anywhere between 12-18 months. The length of the treatment varies according to the goals you set out during your initial consultation with Dr. Keihani.
Get in touch with Oxnard Dentistry for more information about how long you can expect your specific Invisalign treatment to last.
It’s important to remember that Invisalign treatment is very different from traditional braces. So, while there are definite advantages to Invisalign, there are things that only traditional braces can solve.
The main advantage of Invisalign treatment is its appearance. Traditional braces typically come in the shape of metallic or porcelain brackets that your orthodontist glues directly to the surface of your teeth. Invisalign uses clear aligners. That is, aligners that are quasi-invisible.
In addition, the brackets used in traditional braces are often sharp-edged, making it possible for you to cut yourself while yawning, speaking, or chewing. Invisalign aligners are soft and rounded, so you never have to worry about additional pain.
If you require mild to moderate orthodontic treatment, Invisalign might be what you’re looking for. Don’t wait another minute to book an appointment with Dr. Keihani and his team. Get in touch by phone or by using the online booking tool today.
