Invisalign: A Modern Approach to Dental Alignment

While metal braces still have their place in orthodontics, especially with certain dental issues, Invisalign clear braces are quickly becoming more and more popular. Traditional braces can be hard on a patient, especially because they limit certain foods and need special cleaning tools. 

Invisalign braces make the path to a beautiful new smile easier, with clear aligners that are comfortably smooth so you can enjoy life. Plus, you can receive treatment with Invisalign clear braces right here in Solana Beach with Dr. Robert Rosenfeld.

What Is the Invisalign System?

During your Invisalign braces consultation, Dr. Rosenfeld utilizes dental imaging to create a digital 3D impression of your teeth. As the treatment progresses, we can track the exact movements of your jaw and calculate how long your treatment will take.

The Process

The impression of your smile is then sent to a dental lab where a series of clear aligners are custom made just for you. You’ll need to switch out your aligners every few weeks to maintain comfort and keep your teeth moving into the right position.

Invisalign clear aligners also allow you to keep enjoying the foods you love. Clear braces are also made from smooth material that is more comfortable and doesn’t cause mouth sores the way metal braces might do. 

Caring for your clear braces is easy. You can remove your aligners when you need to brush and floss. Additionally, cleaning kits are available 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 to traditional braces. Invisalign clear aligners are:

  • Comfortable: You can simply remove the aligners before eating or while you are brushing and flossing.
  • Fashionable: Your family and friends will hardly notice that you are wearing braces.
  • Functional: Enjoy the path to stunningly straight teeth without the discomfort of metal braces and spacers.

The Invisalign system also works faster than traditional dental alignment. With metal braces and retainers, treatment time takes about two years on average until realignment is complete. With clear aligners, you can expect the treatment to take about 12–18 months, depending on your situation.
