Invisalign Used for the following Problem
If you have ever wondered if Invisalign is right for you, call our office at 949-727-4321 to schedule a free consultation appointment with Dr. Shafiei. As a leading Irvine Invisalign provider, Dr. Shafiei has helped many patients of all ages achieve beautiful smiles. Her reputation for providing excellent aesthetic results and superb patient care attracts Invisalign patients from throughout Southern California. By providing patients with customized clear aligners, Dr. Shafiei can turn even severely misaligned teeth into confident, gorgeous smiles. In the paragraphs below, Dr. Shafiei explains Invisalign technology and the results her Invisalign patients can achieve through this convenient treatment.
Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces, using a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. You wear each set of clear aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position your Dr. Shafiei has prescribed. You'll visit our office about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
How does Invisalign work?
Dr. Shafiei and her associates utilize 3D computer imaging technology to demonstrate the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position. This imaging technology is then used to design an individualized series of custom-made aligners. The patient wears the aligner for about two weeks while the teeth move incrementally. After two weeks, the current aligner is replaced with the next one until the final position is achieved.
Does Invisalign really work?
Yes...Proven... Here are some cases I have treated successfully with invisalign.
Periodontal health can be improved during orthodontic treatment using the Invisalign system because patients are able to remove the aligners to brush and floss normally.
