Want great results from your orthodontic treatment? Choose Invisalign in San Mateo
If you wish your smile was straighter, there is a discreet way to undergo orthodontic treatment. Invisalign helps adults have a beautiful smile without years of traditional braces. Traditional braces use wires and brackets that are extremely visible. With Invisalign, no one will even know that you are straightening your smile.
Invisalign treatment uses clear aligner trays. The trays are worn for two weeks before being swapped for the next set. As you wear the trays, they gradually shift the teeth into proper alignment. The trays must be worn around 20-22 hours each day, but can be removed for eating and brushing teeth.
With Invisalign you get real results and the following benefits:
Trays are Invisible
Traditional braces are highly visible. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without compromising your appearance.
Trays are comfortable
Wires and brackets can irritate the mouth and cause sores. Invisalign aligner trays are made from BPA-free, smooth plastic to make them comfortable and easy to wear.
Trays are Removable
Patients are free to take the trays out to eat and clean their teeth. Traditional braces leave lots of places for bacteria that are hard to reach with a toothbrush and many patients experience tooth decay during treatment. With Invisalign, you can stay on top of your oral health.
And finally, Invisalign straightening is flexible
Traditionally, orthodontic patients are told to avoid a long list of foods, including some favorites such as gum, nuts, and popcorn. With Invisalign, you can remove the aligners and enjoy these foods in moderation without messing up your braces.
Depending on the condition of your teeth, you may require fewer or more number of trays and your Invisalign treatment can last from six months to year and a half. The treatment cost can range from $2500 to $5000.
Invisalign treatment can often be completed in less time than traditional braces. If you are in the San Mateo area, call Peninsula Dental Implant Center today at (650) 232-7650 to schedule an appointment and find out if Invisalign is right for you.
