Is something a bit off with your smile? Crooked teeth, misalignments, bite issues, and crowding can affect the appearance of your teeth. Invisalign treatment in Hayward, CA, from Del Rio Dental Studio, can fix your smile without the need for uncomfortable traditional braces.
Invisalign treatment is a widely used orthodontic treatment that guides teeth into their proper positions, much like traditional braces. The big difference is that Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners instead of metal wires and brackets. This means a more comfortable and less noticeable treatment experience.
The first step in your Invisalign treatment is a consultation with Dr. Del Rio. She’ll carefully evaluate your teeth and jaw using the latest imaging technology to determine the nature and extent of your orthodontic issues. Invisalign provides treatment for most cases, but some patients may require a referral to an orthodontist.
Digital impressions of your teeth are then used to create a series of custom clear plastic aligners. Each set is a slightly different shape, with individual sets being worn for two weeks. As you switch sets over the course of treatment, your teeth are guided into the proper position. You’ll have several check-ins with Dr. Del Rio to verify your progress.
Invisalign treatment provides a solution for many different orthodontic issues, including:
Every case is unique, so the best way to find out whether Invisalign is right for you is to schedule a consultation at Del Rio Dental Studio.
Invisalign has many benefits over traditional braces. The clear plastic aligners are practically invisible, making your treatment less conspicuous and helping boost your confidence. They’re also more comfortable than braces, avoiding irritation or abrasion from brackets.
Best of all, Invisalign clear aligners are removable. Instead of restricting your diet, you simply take them off when you eat. Oral hygiene is also more straightforward. Just make sure not to leave them off, as wearing them for at least 22 hours a day is vital to ensure proper results.
