Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that are intended to gradually shift and move your teeth with specific instructions from your Oakland Invisalign dentist. Invisalign is the only removable aligner brand to use a precise computer program in order to create your unique series of aligners. Invisalign is most commonly recommended for patients with mild to moderate crowding or spacing. Feel free to call us, or click here, to schedule a consultation with an Oakland Invisalign dentist to see if you or your teen is a candidate for Invisalign® clear aligners.
How does it work?
Invisalign® is a modern approach to straightening teeth by using a custom-made series of aligners created for each individual patient. The clear aligner trays are made of a smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth for at least 22 hours a day.
By wearing the aligners, you will make gradual shifts in your teeth. These changes will coordinate with the exact movements that your Oakland Invisalign dentist has prescribed for you. With no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten, your Invisalign® aligners are completely comfortable. You’ll just pop in a new set approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a newly radiant and straighter smile and most people won’t even know it!
