What is Invisalign treatment?

Metal bracket and wire braces can be a source of embarrassment for many patients. This is why, when some teenagers and adults are considering realigning their teeth, many choose not to because they don’t want to hide their smile for months, sometimes years. Fortunately, metal bracket and wire braces are not the only solutions for patients with mild to moderate misalignment. Instead, many teenagers and adults may be candidates for a procedure known as Invisalign.

Dr Munira Lokhandwala, Starbrite Dental, Providing invisalign treatment

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses aligner trays as an alternative to brackets and wires for repositioning the teeth within the dental arch. These trays are made of high quality, professional-grade clear plastic that is custom-made to cover the dental arch and gently push teeth into a better position. Many patients prefer this method of orthodontia because it is much more discreet than the alternative.

Invisalign treatment also has many other benefits. Invisalign is fast, effective, comfortable, and easy to use. Patients also have the ability to maintain their oral health better with the trays as they can be removed for brushing and flossing. Patients with metal brackets and wires have difficulty maintaining their dental health because of the complications that arise from them. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala encourages patients with mild to moderate misalignment to consider the advantages Invisalign treatment can provide and decide if traditional orthodontics is really best for their smile. Most patients are proper candidates and can use Invisalign for straightening the dental arch and the bite, addressing crossbite, overbite, and underbite. Invisalign can also be used to straighten teeth that may be contributing to a condition known as a temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ/TMD.

Teenagers and adults in the San Jose area who are considering Invisalign treatment are urged to speak with the team of StarBrite Dental and have an initial examination done to determine one’s ability to enjoy orthodontic services through our practice. Many patients love working with us for treatment rather than being referred out to an orthodontist whom they do not know or trust.
