Do you have uneven teeth? A smile that appears crooked or crowded can have a number of adverse affects on both the health and appearance of your smile, including increasing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and even TMJ disorder. Are you looking a less noticeable alternative to metal braces? Do you want to know if you should choose Invisalign?
Common Questions About Invisalign in Temecula, CA
Question: How does the treatment work?
Answer: First, we will take photos and impressions of your teeth. The Invisalign lab will then use these materials to create a series of aligners. Made from clear plastic, the aligners will be barely noticeable while aiding in the improvement of your smile.
Question: How long do I wear the aligners?
Answer: For optimal results we recommend wearing the aligners daily for between 20 and 23 hours. The entire treatment will take about a year for adults. However, teens may require between a year and 18 months. The exact treatment time will depend on the severity of your misalignment.
Question: Can I remove them before meals?
Answer: yes, you can remove them prior to eating. As a result, you can enjoy the hard or sticky food you may have needed to avoid if you wore traditional braces. Removable aligners will also make brushing your teeth and flossing thoroughly easier, improving your oral hygiene and reducing the severity of teeth stains.
Question: Who qualifies for Invisalign?
Answer: We recommend this option for patients over the age of 16 who have minor alignment issues. As part of a free cosmetic consultation, we will examine your teeth and jaw to decide if Invisalign is the best choice for correcting your misalignment. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office today. We also offer Six Month Smiles as a practically invisible alternative to traditional metal braces.
