One of the biggest concerns people have about orthodontic treatments is the aesthetic impact of the metalwork on their smile. AZ Dental provides Invisalign® in San Jose, California, to straighten your teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires. These nearly invisible clear aligners can quickly and effectively improve your smile. Call us at 408-227-6000 to make your appointment and find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign.
Invisalign uses a series of custom-made aligning trays made from clear plastic. You will switch to a new set of trays every few weeks as your treatment progresses. These aligners are also removable, so duration of your treatment will depend on how often you wear your aligners, and for how long. Because they are removable, it is also easy for you to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.
Invisalign corrects the same problems as traditional braces, including:
- Gaps between your teeth
- Bad bites (crossbites, overbites, underbites, etc.)
Invisalign is often preferable to both metal braces and veneers. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is both discreet and removable. Unlike veneers, Invisalign actually corrects your tooth alignment, rather than simply covering up the flaws in your teeth.
When planning your treatment, our orthodontist will take 3D digital images of your entire jaw. These images will then be used to plan your entire treatment, and a series of aligners will be made for each phase of your treatment. Typically, 20-30 sets of aligners per arch are created for your Invisalign treatment.
