What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a discrete form of corrective braces consisting of a series of transparent, removable aligners that can straighten your teeth and improve your bite. I Song Orthodontics is an Invisalign Elite Provider for both teens and adults.

Benefits of Invisalign

The days of cumbersome, ostentatious metal braces are over. No need to worry about pointy metal brackets digging into your gums. Invisalign is virtually unnoticeable. You can correct misaligned teeth while keeping a low profile. As we get older, it gets harder and harder to conceptualize having braces as adults. Invisalign is perfect for this type of scenario. For comfort and convenience, the choice is Invisalign. For the most experienced Invisalign provider in Albany and Berkeley, CA, choose I Song Orthodontics today.

Advantages Over Traditional Braces

Invisalign is highly effective in straightening teeth in a variety of cases, including but certainly not limited to crowding, spacing, crossbite, as well as underbite and overbite. You can still enjoy all of the foods you love without the big lifestyle change that metal braces represents. You can also brush and floss just as you normally would. Best of all, you don’t have to worry about having to frequently visit your orthodontist. You only have to come in every four to six weeks in order for us to gauge your improvement and supply you with new aligners.

Duration

You will be given an initial Invisalign consultation at I Song Orthodontics during which we will go over the full extent of the treatment, how it works, and preparations. We’ll also discuss how long we anticipate that you will need to use Invisalign. For best results, you should wear your aligners for 20 hours or more per day, throughout the entirety of your treatment.

Invisalign FAQ

What Is Invisalign Treatment?

Invisalign treatment includes wearing a series of different clear, removable aligners that work to gradually align/straighten your teeth. You don’t have to deal with any of the brackets, wires, or restrictions that come with metal braces.

What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners Made of? What Do They Look Like?

Made from a patented thermoplastic material known as SmartTrack, Invisalign aligners are almost completely clear. This plastic is created exclusively for Invisalign treatment. It is a very flexible plastic.

You can barely see Invisalign aligners. They are clear, thin, and fit snugly over your teeth.

How Will Invisalign Treatment Make My Teeth Straight?

When you visit your dentist, they will create a unique and personalized treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your aligners will then apply the perfect amount of force to your teeth based on your plan.

Your dentist will help you every step of the way to monitor your progress to ensure your aligners are doing their job.

What Are the Best Benefits of Invisalign Treatment?

The main benefit of Invisalign treatment is that it is done very discreetly. The aligners are virtually invisible so people may be able to notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat, brush, drink, floss, and for special occasions. 

On top of all that, you won’t have to deal with metal wires or brackets to irritate your mouth or break.

Am I Certain to Have Straight Teeth?

Every single smile is different and unique. That is why your treatment will always begin with a consultation. From there, your dentist will be able to help you determine what the treatment can do for your smile. Nobody can guarantee one particular outcome, but you should let your doctor know what your goals are.

Invisalign is a great way to achieve the smile of your dreams. Better yet, you can do it in a discrete and quick way without having to worry about brackets or wires. If you think Invisalign might be the best option for you, schedule an appointment with our team today.
