Poway / San Diego Invisalign – The Clear Alternative To Braces
Many people want straight teeth without having to go through the traditional route of metal braces. That’s why Align Orthodontics offers Invisalign as a great alternative to braces that many refer to as “invisible or clear braces”, or sometimes even “Invisalign Braces”.
Invisalign is a popular treatment option that involves wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually move your teeth without wires or brackets. No one can tell you are wearing Invisalign because it’s clear! We are extensively knowledgeable on the process and are a Premier Preferred Provider of Invisalign in Poway & San Diego County.
Not only do aligners appear invisible, they are also removable so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, with Invisalign there’s no hassle with brushing and flossing compared to traditional metal braces. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
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. You wear each set of clear aligners for about two weeks and 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 orthodontist or dentist has prescribed. You’ll visit your orthodontist or dentist about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
