Invisalign

stoker removable new

While metal braces have been proven effective in straightening your teeth, they can make it more difficult to practice good oral hygiene and even have a negative effect on how you view your smile during treatment. Metal braces require a lot of time in the office adjusting wires and elastics. Luckily, there is a better and easier way to gain that perfect smile you are looking for. At Almaden Smiles in San Jose, California, we offer Invisalign. Invisalign is a quicker and better way to straighten your teeth with less time in the dentist’s office that also allows patients to maintain good oral hygiene. 

What is Invisalign? 

Invisalign is a nearly invisible way to create a beautiful, straight smile without all the hassles that traditional braces bring. Invisalign includes custom, clear aligners that will slowly push or pull your teeth into the desired position. Every two weeks, a new set of clear aligners will be given to you that will continue moving your teeth into their directed position. Depending on your misalignment will determine how long your Invisalign treatment will last. Normally the process can take anywhere from 10-12 months. 

How Does Invisalign Work? 

When you express interest in Invisalign and improving the alignment of your smile, we will first have you in for a consultation. The dentist will talk to you about your desired results and the time and cost it will take to get there. Using digital technology and impressions of your teeth, the dentist will create multiple sets of clear aligners that will push your teeth exactly to where your treatment plan has designed them to go. Your aligners should be worn for 22 hours of the day only being removed to eat and brush your teeth, which is the only way to make Invisalign effective. Every 2 weeks, you will visit the dentist to receive new aligners. 

What are the Benefits of Invisalign? 

  • Invisalign aligners are removable and allow you to practice good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing daily. There are no metal brackets or wires that will block your path. 
  • Invisalign is available to you right here in our office, making it more convenient for you. You won’t have to be referred to an orthodontist. 
  • Invisalign can also correct any overbites, underbites, or crossbites that you have. 
  • You can easily receive other dental treatments, such as your bi-yearly cleaning, without the interference of brackets and wires.
