San Jose dentist describes Invisalign
Invisalign is often a requested treatment by teenagers and adult patients who are considering straightening their teeth and their dental bite. However, many are unaware of what Invisalign is and visit with Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental in the San Jose area to learn more about it and decide if it is right for them.
Invisalign is a treatment chosen by patients who want to realign their teeth in a discreet yet effective manner. This method of orthodontia uses clear plastic aligners. These trays are custom-made for patients based off impressions of their smile. An entire series is made. Patients start with the first one and then work their way through the series as their teeth are repositioned. Each tray is worn for approximately two weeks before moving to the next one. By the end of treatment, the smile is completely transformed! Many patients find that wearing a retainer for a year or two after treatment can help in maintaining the results and avoiding teeth from shifting.
Patients who are the best candidates for treatments such as Invisalign are individuals who have mild to moderate misalignment with the bite or the dental arch. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and the team of StarBrite Dental believe in providing patients with this solution as a way to avoid being referred to an orthodontic specialist and to stay with a dental professional patients already know and trust. Patients can have their orthodontic treatment monitored by the dentist they’ve been with for years and can trust in their work and dedication to improving smiles.
