Are crooked teeth, gaps in your smile, or teeth that overlap keeping you from feeling confident about smiling? Maybe you’ve thought about straightening your teeth, but you don’t like the idea of wearing metal braces?
Fortunately, Invisalign offers patients the opportunity to align their teeth with invisible plastic aligners instead of traditional braces. Invisible braces in Encinitas will have you smiling with ease and confidence again!
How Do Invisible Braces in Encinitas Work?
Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses snug fitting clear plastic aligners that move your teeth gradually with gentle pressure. You’ll wear your aligners for two to three-week intervals and the move to the next set in the progression. We can complete most Invisalign cases in 12 to 18 months, depending on your needs.
What Advantages Does Invisalign Offer?
Straightening your teeth with invisible braces is comfortable because the aligners are smooth, so there are no pokey wires or brackets that can irritate your gums or soft tissues.
Since the aligners are removable, you can eat all the foods you love with no changes to your diet required while you are straightening your teeth. Maintaining your home care routine is also easy since you can take your aligners out to brush and floss your teeth, which makes it easy to keep your smile healthy during your treatment.
Invisalign is also similar in cost to traditional braces, and if your dental insurance has an orthodontic benefit, it can often be applied toward treatment with Invisalign. Dr. Godinez will determine the exact cost of your treatment during an evaluation and based on the length and complexity of your case.
The advantage that patients love most, however, is the fact that Invisalign offers them discretion, so no one will ever know they are straightening their teeth.
How Can I Get Started?
If you would like to learn more about invisible braces in Encinitas, CA, we encourage you to schedule a commitment-free evaluation with Dr. Godinez. During your evaluation, he performs a thorough examination of your teeth and bite, and he also takes photos and x-rays of your teeth.
While Invisalign works well for most patients, it doesn’t correct complicated jaw or bite issues. Dr. Godinez will determine if this is the treatment that best suits your needs, and if it is, he’ll use the information he’s gathered to create your treatment plan so Invisalign can customize your clear aligners. He can even show you what your finished smile will look like!
If Invisalign won’t help you meet your goals for your smile, Dr. Godinez will discuss some other treatment options with you so you can achieve your best smile.
