Invisalign in San Diego
The decision to get braces can be challenging, with many patients worrying about the unsightly appearance of traditional braces. Fortunately, today’s state-of-the-art orthodontic advances ensure that braces don’t have to take over your smile. Invisalign is a modern technique of moving your teeth that doesn’t rely on traditional braces. Getting Invisalign in San Diego is a great option for patients concerned with the aesthetics of orthodontia.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a method of straightening teeth. Unlike traditional braces, in which brackets are affixed to teeth and wired together, Invisalign is essentially invisible. The dentist provides a series of aligner trays customized to your teeth. During the Invisalign process, you will wear these aligner trays as they gradually shift your teeth into the proper position. In fact, most people will not even notice that you are straightening your teeth!
What to Expect from the Invisalign Process
After an initial consultation, Dr. Feinberg will create an individualized treatment plan for you. This involves taking moulded impressions, photographs of the teeth, and digital X-rays. With this information, Dr. Feinberg can predict how your teeth will shift with Invisalign. Then, you will start Invisalign treatment with your first set of custom aligner trays.
It’s important to wear the custom aligners all day, except during meals or toothbrushing. These aligner trays easily clip into your mouth and are nearly invisible. You will wear each set of aligners for two weeks before receiving the next set. Patients sometimes experience mild discomfort when they begin wearing a new set of aligners. This is because the trays are the shape your teeth will be at the end of the two weeks; as your teeth adjust to the new tray, you might experience some aching or discomfort.
"For obvious reasons as an actor, metal braces just wouldn’t cut it. I needed something more subtle. The Invisalign braces worked perfect for me. Most people didn’t even know I had them on. I was also able to remove them when absolutely necessary and keep my career on track. I highly recommend Invisalign, Dr. Feinberg and the staff at this awesome dental office."
