If you have been thinking about straightening your teeth, but you do not want to have to cope with the mouthful of metal that comes with braces, limit your diet, or make repeated trips to the dentist’s or orthodontist’s office for adjustments, you may want to think about using the Invisalign® system.
Invisalign makes use of clear aligners that fit snugly against your teeth that are practically invisible to other people once you put them in. The process starts with the dentist taking a digital impression of your teeth, which will be used to create your series of aligners that will move your teeth horizontally and vertically, and even rotate them to help give you a new, straight smile. You will change the aligners out usually once a week. You only need to remove them to eat, brush and floss your teeth, and to clean them. Cleaning your aligners is as easy as rinsing them with lukewarm water, or you can use a special solution made for them. With the Invisalign system, there are no restrictions on your diet and you can enjoy all the foods that you love.
For a straight, healthy and beautiful smile, Invisalign is an outstanding option. If you would like to see if it is right for you, our dentist, Dr. Michael S. Tseng will be happy to give you an examination and make a recommendation about a course of treatment. To make an appointment at United Dental Group in Burlingame, California, call 650-777-9195 today.
