Invisalign

Are you thinking about orthodontic treatment but worry about the way traditional metal braces will affect your smile? At Arcadia Dentaldontics, we know that it can be discouraging for adults and teenagers to think about the prospect of living with conspicuous metal braces for several years. Invisalign clear aligners are a discreet adult orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth quickly and comfortably.

We strive to provide you with treatments that enhance your appearance and improve your oral health. Invisalign is just one example of a treatment that does both. With Invisalign, you can enjoy the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted without the inconvenience and discomfort of traditional metal braces.

How the Invisalign Process Works

Invisalign is a progressive system of clear plastic aligners that gradually shifts your teeth into their ideal positions. The aligners are made using a smooth plastic material that is virtually invisible when worn, and they also offer the important benefit of being removable for eating, brushing, and flossing.

Dr. Whang begins planning your treatment using three-dimensional digital images of your jaw. These highly detailed images allow us to change the position of specific teeth on the screen and view the jaw from different angles.

This technology also gives you a preview of how your Invisalign aligners will alter and improve your appearance. When the planning stage is complete, a customized set of aligners is created. After we receive your set of custom aligners, we will instruct you on how to use and care for them. After a couple of weeks, you will notice that your aligners feel like they’re getting looser. This is progress in action as you move to the next set of aligners.

Benefits of Choosing Invisalign

Our patients love the positive results they see after Invisalign treatment, but aesthetics are not the only advantage:

  • Since Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, flexible plastic, they are much more comfortable than traditional metal braces.
  • Invisalign aligners are removable for brushing, flossing, and eating.
  • The aligners can easily be worn with a protective mouth guard when needed for sports.

The whole Invisalign process is streamlined and efficient, and we schedule in-office visits at convenient four-week intervals so we can monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments.

Most importantly, our Invisalign team uses these aligners to improve the beauty and the health of your smile. With Invisalign, you can achieve an even and stable dental bite—which helps prevent premature dental deterioration and wear and tear.
