Invisalign® is an orthodontic alternative to braces that uses clear aligners to straighten teeth and improve malocclusions (bite problems).
Made of BPA-free plastic, Invisalign® clear aligners are removable and mold to the unique shape of your teeth. Others can’t tell when you’re wearing them, and you can remove them to brush, floss, eat, and drink.
Invisalign® works in a similar way to traditional metal braces. While braces fix to your teeth and apply force at once, clear aligners are removable devices that gently shift one tooth at a time. The result is a faster, more comfortable treatment that’s less apparent than wearing braces.
Unlike conventional braces, you don’t need to attend tightening appointments for Invisalign®. Instead, you wear a new set of aligners to target different teeth and apply varying levels of force every two weeks.
Invisalign® is a safe, effective treatment to correct orthodontic concerns, such as misaligned teeth, an overbite, an underbite, or an open bite. When combined with Newport Beach Dentistry, it offers the following benefits:
The Invisalign process is almost entirely digital for comfort, convenience, and accuracy. Dr. Wilhelm, a dedicated Newport Beach Dentist, creates your custom-made aligners with digital impressions. He uses the iTero® intraoral scanner to take impressions, then uploads the scans into the Invisalign software. In the software, he can design your individualized treatment plan.
Next, Dr. Wilhelm sends your plan to Invisalign®, which fabricates your clear aligners. You receive a new set around once every two weeks. Because the process is digital, Dr. Wilhelm, your trusted Newport Beach Dentist, can make adjustments to your plan straight in the software to prevent delays in your treatment.
To ensure the success of your Invisalign and Newport Beach Dentistry treatment, it’s important to wear your clear aligners for at least 22 hours a day. This consistent wear is essential to keep your treatment on track and achieve the desired results within the projected timeframe. Gently rinsing and cleaning your aligners each day can help protect them against damage and maintain their clarity.
