Invisalign® in Walnut Creek
One of the most common concerns patients have about their smile regards the straightness of their teeth, and it comes as no surprise that a patient’s hesitation to show their smile stems from a lack of confidence in its appearance. Similar to traditional metal braces, Invisalign enables patients to achieve a straighter and healthier smile that they don’t mind sharing with others.
Offering Invisalign in Walnut Creek, Shadelands Dental Care helps our patients achieve the straight smile they’ve always wanted. Schedule your consultation today!
What does Invisalign treatment involve?
While each patient’s Invisalign treatment plan is customized to meet their individual needs, they can expect to undergo the same straightforward and convenient process.
During the initial phase of treatment, our team will validate whether you’re a suitable Invisalign candidate. When eligibility has been determined, 3D impressions of your teeth and bite will be taken. These digital images are sent to the Invisalign lab to create your custom series of aligner trays to be used during treatment.
Next, we will supply you with your first set of aligners, check for proper fit, and adjust where needed. A check-up appointment will be scheduled approximately every six weeks to observe progress and provide you with the next progression of Invisalign trays.
As your teeth gradually shift into better alignment, you will continue receiving new aligners until your treatment is complete.
Benefits of Walnut Creek Invisalign
When comparing Invisalign to traditional metal braces, there are many benefits to clear aligner therapy. Patients who opt for Invisalign can anticipate the following benefits:
- Aligners are more discreet than traditional metal braces and can often go undetected.
- Because Invisalign clear braces can be removed, maintaining oral health during treatment is more easily achieved.
- With Invisalign, there are no food restrictions as there are with traditional metal braces.
- After treatment is complete, the aligner trays can be used with cosmetic teeth whitening without needing more dental impressions or delivery trays created.
Who is an ideal candidate?
Invisalign clear braces are intended to correct misaligned, crooked teeth and minor malocclusions. Ideal candidates have mild to moderate issues that need to be adjusted. Because of the removable nature of the transparent aligners, it’s also advised that candidates are responsible and motivated, as ideal results require a commitment to wearing the aligners for the at least 22 hours per day.
