Straighten Up This Year With Invisalign

Some dreams can feel out of reach. But that’s not the case if you’ve always wanted straighter, more perfect teeth. In fact, Invisalign® makes it easier than ever to get the smile you’ve been dreaming of — at any age.

Our skilled team at The Dental Touch in Oakland, California, offers numerous cosmetic dentistry procedures to ensure you have teeth you’ll want to smile about. If you want to start the new year right, here’s how Invisalign can help.

Why Invisalign

In the past, you had to turn to traditional braces when you wanted to correct alignment issues. But now you can get proven results with new and modern techniques, thanks to Invisalign.

The Invisalign process starts with iTero Element® Scanner, an advanced 3-D digital imaging technology. It’s approximately the size of a ballpoint pen, which makes it a comfortable and accurate way to model your teeth and gums. 

After creating digital models of your teeth, we create a personalized treatment program on a computer. That means you can see exactly how the entire process every step of the way — before we even begin! This approach is so precise, we can even move a single tooth a fraction of an inch to improve the overall appearance of your smile.

Finally, the Invisalign system relies on proprietary SmartTrack® material for their removable aligners. Not only is this material more comfortable and better-fitting than competitors, but it’s also free of BPA, BPS, latex, and gluten. Plus, they’re clear, thin, and fit so snugly over your teeth, they’re virtually invisible.

Getting results with Invisalign

Invisalign’s innovative approach to teeth straightening means you can get results faster than uncomfortable options like braces.

During your treatment, you wear a custom-made set of aligners for 1-2 weeks. Each set works to gently shift your teeth into their ideal position based on your treatment plan. This process uses precise amounts of force, which allows for complex tooth movements without the discomfort of braces.

For the best results, you simply wear your liners for 20-22 hours each day. You can take them out for special occasions, or to eat, brush, and floss. However, the more you wear them, the better they work.

We usually recommend regular checkups every 4-6 weeks to make sure you progress as planned.

When to consider Invisalign

Whether you need simple tooth straightening fixes or more complex solutions, Invisalign can help. We recommend this innovative approach for numerous issues, including:

You can even use the Invisalign system in phases, making it a highly effective option for growing children with developing jaws.

If you’ve been wanting straighter teeth, it’s never been a better time to try Invisalign. To see if it’s right for you, call our office at 510-324-9096 or book a consultation online today.
