Braces: The mere mention of the term brings to mind shiny metal brackets and painful wires. But no longer! Since its introduction to the dental scene in 1998, Invisalign® has revolutionized the field of orthodontics. More and more, families are turning to Invisalign to straighten teeth faster and with more discretion.
The members of the talented dental team at Lancaster Dental Care Associates are proud Invisalign providers for Lancaster, California, and surrounding communities. Although copied by many companies, Invisalign produces reliable, quick, and effective results for so many alignment problems better than any imitators. Let’s review the major advantages.
Traditional braces could be spotted from far away; indeed, they reflected light and caught everyone’s attention. If you wore braces through school, you likely endured ridicule and name-calling from your un-braced peers. Add to that the pain and trouble caused by the wires and brackets, and wearing braces was probably a part of your adolescent years you would like to forget.
Now you can spare your children this hassle and abuse with Invisalign clear aligners. The patented SmartTrack® materials are virtually clear. This means they are hardly noticeable, even in close contact with others. Invisalign custom-fitted trays are also matched to your natural gum line for extra discretion.
Busy adults and teens do not want to hear that they are expected to wear painful and painfully obvious metal braces for three years or longer. And now, that is unnecessary. Invisalign clear aligners typically straighten teeth in as little as 12-18 months, which is about twice as fast as traditional braces.
Individual cases will vary, and your teeth could be corrected in even less time. Your Invisalign dentist will show you the planned treatment schedule and provide a projected completion time according to your unique needs.
The idea of clear aligners is no longer patented, so many companies are jumping on board to produce clear aligners, even some you order and wear from home without the benefit of a dentist! Don’t fall for these silly and often dangerous schemes. Invisalign is the only brand product with patented SmartTrack materials.
SmartTrack applies constant, gentle pressure to your teeth, which encourages them to move into their new positions. This allows your teeth to realign faster and more comfortably than traditional braces or other aligner trays. Other copies cannot duplicate this technology. And why choose a copy when the best is available?
The Invisalign dentists at Lancaster Dental Care Associates begin by creating a precise map of your mouth and current teeth positions with an iTero Element® 3D digital scanner. This enables us to create your customized dental trays to exacting specifications and do a better job of straightening your teeth.
The software also allows our dentists to map out a detailed plan to show you each step of progression until your treatments are completed. You get to see the beginning setup and the ending goals, all in the same dental visit!
Invisalign researchers did not retire after their initial fantastic developments. They are constantly using feedback from patients and dentists to improve the Invisalign technology. This includes special components that can be used in more complicated orthodontic cases, so even more patients can enjoy Invisalign clear aligners.
