Do you have crooked teeth and want a beautiful smile without brackets or wires? If so, the exceptional team of experts at Dental Studio of Pasadena in Pasadena, California, offers the perfect solution. They use Invisalign® clear aligners to perfect the position of your teeth and your bite in as little as six months. Call the office to learn more, or schedule an appointment online today.
The Invisalign system comprises a series of clear aligners that fit over the top of your natural teeth, slowly shifting them into ideal alignment. The aligners work like traditional braces but without metal wires and brackets.
The main benefits of Invisalign include straighter teeth, bite improvements, and an elevated sense of self-confidence. The aligners are clear, so they’re not noticeable like braces, and they fit comfortably over the top of your teeth. You can remove them when you eat, brush your teeth, and floss.
To determine if you’re a candidate for Invisalign, a Dental Studio of Pasadena provider examines your teeth, gums, mouth, and bite. They review the results of your dental X-rays and discuss your desired results before personalizing an orthodontic treatment best suited to your needs.
Conventional braces might work best in severe cases of misaligned or crooked teeth.
However, if you're a candidate for Invisalign, a Dental Studio of Pasadena provider digitally scans your mouth to develop custom-fitted aligners.
When the new aligners are ready to wear, place them over the top of your teeth and wear them for 20-22 hours every day. Switch to another set of aligners in your series every 1-2 weeks or as your dentist directs until you complete treatment.
Keep the aligners clean by brushing them with toothpaste and a toothbrush or using the Invisalign cleaning system available at Dental Studio of Pasadena. Rinse your aligners in warm water, not hot. Each Invisalign treatment could last 6-12 months, sometimes longer, but every patient is different.
After you complete Invisalign treatment, the Dental Studio of Pasadena team might recommend you wear a retainer, at least during certain times of the day or at night, to keep your teeth in their desired position. Take good care of your teeth by brushing them after meals, flossing daily, and not chewing on hard objects. See your dentist at least every six months.
