Straight teeth can be achieved with Invisalign®. Invisalign® is a series of clear aligners that are used to straighten teeth, without the use of brackets and wires, which can often be conspicuous during daily life. Invisalign® treatment offers patients the convenience of virtually invisible orthodontics for correcting various types of malocclusion problems.
If you are interested in Invisalign®, Redlands, CA dentist, Dr. Steve Tatevossian, offers this effective treatment to patients of King House Dental Group. Consult him to be sure that it is the right treatment for you since it can help you get the straight smile that you have always wanted!
It can correct a wide range of malocclusion problems, including crooked teeth, gapped teeth, overcrowded teeth, and rotated teeth.
These aligners are removable which makes it easy to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would.
They are a popular orthodontic treatment because it is comfortable, convenient, and discreet.
How does it work?
Invisalign® is specially designed to optimize comfort and convenience as well as an efficient orthodontic treatment solution. Invisalign® teeth aligners are made of both metallic and plastic materials that together work as a tooth moving device that applies an appropriate external force onto the teeth, guiding them into their proper positions. Invisalign® has been proven to be an effective orthodontic treatment for both children and adults.
Can everybody use them?
Invisalign® is often used to correct mild-to-moderate orthodontic problems, but it cannot be used to treat patients who are missing teeth or have totally crooked teeth. In addition, Invisalign® does not realign the muscles of the jaw (TMJ).
Why use it?
Unlike most other types of braces, Invisalign® does not require any adjustments or tightening. Invisalign® aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours a day but can be removed for eating and drinking. Invisalign® is also less likely to cause mouth sores than traditional braces.
Our Orthodontics Solutions
Orthodontics solves malocclusions and other cosmetic problems. Dr. Steve Tatevossian will examine your smile and will need panoramic X-rays and bite impressions to assess the precise nature of the problem. With a proper diagnosis, viable options will be discussed. Here you can see the most common treatments:
A metal or ceramic base is added to every tooth and is connected with a dental wire. The orthodontist will properly help with the alignment by regularly adjusting the wire. When the smile has the expected results, the braces are removed.
There is a wide range of removable appliances utilized in orthodontics, such as headgear, Hawley retainers, and facemasks. Contact us to learn more about it.
This is a removable dental aligner that's completely transparent. With Invisalign® you can eat freely due to its removable nature, but it will work the same way as traditional dental braces. Unfortunately, not all patients are candidates for Invisalign®.
