If you could straighten your teeth without metal brackets and wires, why wouldn’t you? If you’ve struggled with gapping between teeth, crowded teeth, or even bad bite alignment, traditional metal braces are no longer the only option for correcting these problems. It’s possible to get comfortable orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® in Temecula and Hemet from the dental offices of Byron Carr, DMD, FAGD.
Invisalign® is a system of clear, molded trays that fit over your teeth and move them into a more ideal alignment. While traditional metal braces move your teeth by using brackets and wires, the clear plastic of Invisalign® achieves the same results, without giving you a case of metal-mouth. The aligner trays disappear from sight as soon as they are in place on your teeth – no one has to know that you’re working on your smile. Invisalign treats cases of:
• Un-evenly spaced teeth
• Crowded teeth
• Cross bite
Dr. Carr recommends that his Hemet and Temecula Invisalign® patients wear their aligners for 22 hours a day in order to see best results. Every two weeks, you’ll receive a new set of trays that move your teeth into the next phase of alignment, with the result being an ideal smile in a year or less, on average.
How Do I Get Invisalign?
The first step to starting Invisalign® treatment is to visit one of Dr. Carr's dental offices for your initial evaluation. The good news is that Invisalign® treatment has grown and adapted over the years and is now suitable for just about anyone. The success of your treatment begins with the skill level of your Invisalign® dentist and Dr. Carr has been offering Invisalign® since it first became available to orthodontic patients.
At your Invisalign® consultation, Dr. Carr will take digital images of your teeth in order to create a virtual mold that will be sent to Invislaign®’s lab to build your aligner trays. Patients often tell Dr. Carr that teeth straightening with Invisalign® is very discreet and produces the smiles they’d been hoping for before they started their treatment plan.
Invisalign® vs. Metal Braces
Invisalign® and traditional metal braces have a few things in common, but are very different in some areas:
• Visibility: Clear braces are invisible on your teeth, while metal is highly noticeable.
• Comfort: Invisalign® is made from plastic, which will not irritate sensitive tissue in your mouth, like metal braces can.
• Capability: Invisalgn® now treats the same oral health issues as metal braces.
• Cost: Patients may think that more modern care is also more expensive, but Invislaign® is comparable in cost to regular braces. As always, it’s important to speak to Dr. Carr and your insurance provider to get information on treatment cost and coverage.
