Straighten Your Teeth, Without Braces

Invisalign® San Francisco

Invisalign® San FranciscoIf you suffer from malocclusion and require orthodontic treatment, Invisalign® aligners may be ideal for you. Many of our San Francisco patients opt for these “invisible braces,” as they are just as effective as traditional orthodontic appliances while being far more comfortable, convenient, and attractive. If your teeth are out of alignment and you are experiencing dental health complications as a result, we urge you to seek treatment. If left uncared for, the misaligned teeth can impair normal function and cause discomfort and pain. An alternative to metal braces, Invisalign® “invisible braces” are a revolutionary development in orthodontics. Please contact our San Francisco dental offices in Marina and downtown today to learn whether they are right for you.

The Invisalign® System

The Invisalign® system consists of a series of clear plastic trays that are worn in succession over an extended period of time (typically, up to 18 months). Each aligner is custom molded to guide the teeth into proper position, and worn for approximately two weeks before being replaced with the next aligner in the series. Because the aligners are replaced on a regular basis, and each is custom fabricated to slowly guide the teeth into place, there is no need for brackets or wires. The pressure that is applied to the teeth is provided exclusively by the finely crafted trays. Additionally, the trays can be removed for eating, as well as oral hygiene, making them far more convenient and comfortable than traditional metal braces.

To begin your treatment process, you will visit one of our San Francisco dental offices for your initial Invisalign® appointment. During your initial consultation, we will discuss the treatment with you in greater detail and perform a scan of your mouth. This scan allows us to create your Invisalign® “invisible braces” digitally. The digital molds are then sent to the Invisalign® laboratory, where your aligners are made. Once your aligners are complete, you will return to our dental office to receive your trays and instructions on use. Unlike traditional orthodontic appliances, Invisalign® aligners are for the most part maintenance free, and you will return for check-ups only intermittently. The length of your treatment will depend on the degree of your malocclusion; however, in most cases, treatment time is similar to that of traditional braces.

The Invisalign® Difference

Invisalign® “invisible braces” were designed to provide a solution to every drawback of traditional metal braces. They are:

  • removable for the convenience of the patient
  • made from clear plastic so that they are nearly invisible
  • molded to fit comfortably over the teeth, eliminating painful pressure and preventing the chance of cutting the gum tissues
  • wire-free and maintenance-free, preventing the need for frequent visits to the dentist

The benefits of Invisalign® aligners are many, and we are advocates. If you are seeking a solution to malocclusion that has minimal impact on your quality of life, there is simply no better choice than Invisalign®.
