If you have heard enough about your crooked, crowded, and otherwise misaligned teeth, you may want to do something about it. But now that you are thirty-something years old, the thought of wearing traditional braces holds you back. But guess what? For adults and teens who want to align their smiles, Invisalign from Tooth Love in Irvine is a perfect choice. This system uses clear teeth aligners that are discreet and far more comfortable than conventional braces.
Traditional braces straighten teeth by applying controlled pressure on teeth using stainless silver-colored wires and brackets held together by rubber bands. While clear braces function the same as conventional braces, they use clear trays instead of metallic braces to align teeth.
To ensure that the aligners snugly fit over your teeth, we take precise impressions of your teeth and other oral structures using a high-tech intraoral scanner. We then use these images to map out your treatment plan using a 3D modeling system. We then send the models to an offsite lab to fabricate your aligners.
Once your alignment trays are ready, you will book an appointment with Dr. Joanna Jefferson to collect your trays. You will receive a set of trays, and you will wear each set for one to two weeks before moving on to the next. This pattern continues until you achieve the intended results.
We usually say that clear braces are more effective than traditional braces, but there is a caveat. You have to wear your braces as directed to hasten your treatment period. Typically, you should wear your braces for about 22 hours a day. This means you should wear your braces even when sleeping. But don’t worry about any discomfort since the aligners are so comfortable you will even forget you have them on!
Since Invisalign braces are clear and removable, they offer multiple unique benefits over their traditional counterparts. Some include:
