Invisalign: A Modern Approach to Dental Alignment
Conventional braces and retainers are quickly becoming a thing of the past. With traditional alignment procedures, patients have to watch the food they eat, pay close attention when brushing and flossing, and deal with a certain amount of discomfort. Invisalign makes the path to a perfect smile easier, with clear aligners that are comfortable and let you enjoy your life. Plus, you can receive treatment with Invisalign right here in Solana Beach with Dr. Robert Rosenfeld.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign modernizes the approach to smile alignment. During your initial visit, Dr. Rosenfeld will utilize dental imaging to create a digital 3-D impression of your teeth. Going forward, it is possible to track the exact movements of your jaw and calculate and exact duration of treatment.
The impression of your smile is sent to a dental lab that makes plastic aligners that you can just pop into your mouth. As your treatment progresses, new aligners are made every few weeks to maintain comfort and improve your alignment.
These clear aligners let you eat what you like and enjoy comfort not allowed by metal braces and retainers. Also, caring for your plastic braces is easy. You can remove your aligners when you need to brush and floss. Additionally, there are cleaning kits to make sure that your Invisalign braces are fresh every day.
How Clear Braces Make a Difference
Dr. Rosenfeld’s Invisalign treatment is an ideal solution for patients that want a comfortable alternative alignment. Invisalign is:
- Comfortable: It is easy to take out the aligners before eating and while you are brushing and flossing.
- Fashionable: Your family and friends will not notice that you are wearing braces.
- Functional: Enjoy a path to perfect, straight teeth without the discomfort of metal braces and spacers.
Invisalign also works faster than traditional dental alignment. With metal braces and retainers, it takes about two years to get the most out of your treatment. With clear aligners, you can expect the treatment to take about 12 to 18 months depending upon your needs.
