There’s no doubt everyone’s had a moment when they’ve had enough of their crooked teeth. Misaligned teeth can cause problems with speaking and chewing, affecting your wellbeing as well as your confidence. If you are in Los Banos, California, and the surrounding area, consider scheduling a visit to Artistry in Smiles. We offer Invisalign clear aligners that straighten your teeth comfortably and discreetly, restoring your oral functionality and confidence.
In the past, when you had misalignment challenges, there were very few orthodontic options on the table. Most likely, you had to settle for bulky traditional metal braces that required constant adjustments. With the invention of Invisalign, you can now align your smile without the pain and discomfort of metal braces.
The process for Invisalign starts with a consultation with Dr. Benjamin Seaton. Once Dr. Seaton establishes you are a perfect candidate for clear aligners, we take digital impressions of your teeth using an intraoral camera. With the help of advanced computer software, we can simulate your treatment plan, including the treatment period and how your final smile will look like.
Once your treatment plan is in place, we send the digital images to a lab to fashion your aligners. After a few weeks, your aligners will be ready, and you can begin your teeth straightening journey. The treatment will be in phases, and about every two weeks, you will swap your aligners with new ones that shift your teeth closer to proper alignment.
Invisalign works by applying gentle but constant pressure on your teeth. Treatment may take one year, but the period depends on how severe your misalignment is and how dedicated you are to wearing your aligners. Ultimately, you should wear them for at least 22 hours a day.
Invisalign can fix a range of mild to moderate orthodontic issues, including:
The invisible nature of Invisalign is what makes it popular among patients. Instead of conspicuous wires and brackets, clear aligners are made of transparent medical-grade plastic, which makes them virtually invisible, meaning you won’t draw unwarranted attention when straightening your teeth. Other advantages of Invisalign include:
