How does it work?
Invisalign is a series of custom-made retainer pieces that are worn constantly except to eat, brush and floss your teeth. While aligners are in your mouth they are invisible while talking and going throughout daily activities.
Aligners come in a series that differ from the one worn previously in the sequence. Each set of trays that are worn are applying small amounts of pressure to your teeth causing them to move to make teeth straighter.
The main benefit of having Invisalign is that adults and teenagers can obtain the smile that they have always wondered about without being self-conscious of braces. Usually, Invisalign is wanted by older teenagers and adults to fix their teeth with others not being able to notice.
It is very important to consult with your dentist to make sure that Invisalign is the best thing for you and your teeth. If you are seeking Invisalign in Pasadena, your first step would be to make an appointment with us to speak to the dentist. This first appointment is to examine your teeth to see if Invisalign is best for you. If you are a candidate X-rays and impressions will be taken to make the custom aligners.
Once made, you will be given a series of aligners that will be worn at different times during your treatment. Each set of aligners will be worn for a specific time decided by the dentist depending on the movement and progress of your teeth.
You will be instructed to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours each day for them to work properly. The whole Invisalign process can take anywhere from 3 months to a year depending on your case.
