Invisalign® in Santa Clara

Invisalign is a fantastic option to achieve straighter teeth without the hassle and challenges of traditional braces. Crestpointe Dental can determine whether Invisalign is the right treatment option for you.

Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign is an effective treatment option for dealing with a wide range of different teeth misalignment issues. It can give you a straighter smile without many of the downsides of conventional braces.

The Invisalign treatment process uses clear plastic aligners to gradually guide your teeth into the proper position. Each set of plastic aligners is worn for a week and then switched out for the next set. Over time, the gradual change in the aligners straightens your smile by applying gentle but steady pressure to your teeth.

Your Invisalign treatment will begin with a consultation with Dr. Crescencia Tejero-Ugay, a dentist providing top-reviewed Invisalign in Santa Clara. She’ll evaluate the current state of your teeth and discuss your dental issues and concerns. She develops custom treatment plans for all her patients and will ensure that Invisalign is right for you.

Crestpointe Dental uses the latest technology to plan your Invisalign treatment. Digital images of your mouth and teeth are taken with an advanced iTero scanner. This device generates high-definition 3D imaging that can be used to plan how your Invisalign aligners will gradually shift your teeth into the proper position.

Once your aligners are ready, you simply have to switch them out according to the treatment schedule. There will be several checkups to ensure the treatment is proceeding as planned.

Invisalign vs. Braces

Invisalign is an increasingly popular alternative to traditional braces. They have a number of key benefits over braces that make them the preferred option for most patients.

Invisalign can deliver great results in almost any situation where traditional braces can. However, there are some complex or irregular misalignments that Invisalign might not be suitable for. A consultation will be required to determine whether Invisalign is the right solution for your unique case.

Improved Aesthetics

One of the primary benefits Invisalign has over braces is that they are practically invisible. The clear plastic aligners are incredibly difficult to spot unless you’re specifically looking for them. This lets patients straighten their teeth without the very noticeable appearance of metal braces.

Invisalign is even more subtle than ceramic braces that come in the same color as teeth. The plastic aligners follow the contour of your teeth directly, so there isn’t any noticeable protrusion. Invisalign is the most subtle tooth straightening option and can help you remain confident in your smile during treatment.

Greater Convenience

Invisalign treatment is also much more convenient than traditional braces, providing an improved patient experience. The clear plastic aligners can be removed as needed to eat or when brushing and flossing. Patients don’t have to work around their braces and can instead live their lives as usual.

You won’t have to worry about specific dietary restrictions like avoiding hard or sticky foods. Simply remove your Invisalign clear aligners before eating and replace them afterward. Make sure to brush your teeth before putting them back on, though!

You can also enjoy a straightforward brushing routine without worrying about special tools for flossing with braces. The clear aligners can be removed, washed, and put back in during your routine.

While the aligners are removable, it is important to wear them consistently. At least 22 hours per day is required, so they should only be taken out when eating, drinking anything other than water, or brushing your teeth.

Shorter Treatment Length

Invisalign can provide faster results than traditional braces. While traditional braces can take between 24 and 26 months, Invisalign can take as little as six months. In general, Invisalign treatment ranges between 12 and 18 months.
