What Makes Invisalign So Popular? The Benefits Are Great
DiscreetWhile braces are an excellent option for straightening teeth, some patients prefer a more discreet option. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible so you don't have to feel self-conscious while wearing them.
Easily RemovableReady to eat or brush your teeth? The clear aligners can be removed in seconds, giving you freedom and convenience that just can't be achieved with braces.
ComfortableTraditional metal braces use brackets and wires that can irritate the inside of your mouth. Clear aligners are smooth to the touch, making them a more comfortable option.
Easy to MaintainTaking care of your oral health is easy with Invisalign. Patients can brush and floss as they would normally. There is no need to loop floss in between brackets or use any other special cleaning tools with removable aligners.
No Dietary RestrictionsBecause clear aligners are removable, there's no need to worry about orthodontic appliances making it more difficult to eat certain foods. Patients can remove their aligners and enjoy all their favorite foods with no restrictions.

Are You a Good Candidate?
Mild to Moderate Cases
Invisalign is best suited to correct mild to moderate cases of misalignment. For patients with more significant issues, we may recommend an alternative treatment to help you reach your goals.
Good Oral Health
Patients must be in good oral health before being approved for treatment. Any existing tooth decay or gum disease will need to be addressed before you can undergo orthodontic treatment.
Dedicated to the Process
Invisalign is a process that requires time and commitment. Patients must be diligent and wear their aligners for 22 hours each day in order to achieve the maximum benefits.
No Teeth Grinding
Patients who regularly grind or clench their teeth risk wearing down their aligners over time. If necessary, our dentist may recommend braces instead.
Invisalign for Teenagers
A More Discreet Option
If you're interested in orthodontic treatment for your teenager, Invisalign is an excellent option. Adolescence is a pivotal time for a teenager, and the last thing they want is to be wearing braces at school or around their friends.
If you're worried about your child not keeping up with treatment, Invisalign makes special aligner trays with compliance indicators that inform parents and dentists if they aren't being worn for the minimum amount of time each day.

How Does Invisalign Work?
Traditional metal braces use brackets and wires to pull teeth in certain directions. This method can be uncomfortable, especially after the wires are periodically tightened. Invisalign's SmartTrack material covers most of the surface of your teeth, which allows for more controlled and gentle tooth movements. As the teeth are moved into better alignment, your jawbone tissue will adjust and allow for the repositioning of teeth.
Breaking Down the Invisalign Treatment Process
Maintaining Your Results
After your teeth have been straightened, you'll have to take some simple steps to maintain your smile. To prevent the teeth from shifting over time, you must wear the last set of aligners or retainers to bed every night. This allows you to enjoy all the benefits of straighter teeth for years to come. As always, make sure to keep up with oral hygiene by brushing and flossing daily, and attend routine dental visits at our practice in Clairemont, proudly serving patients from Pacific Beach and other areas of San Diego.
