Invisalign Camarillo CA
Gone are the days of painful and embarrassing metal braces. Residents of Camarillo, CA can now take advantage of clear aligners to achieve optimal results without the wires.
Discreet and arguably much more comfortable than traditional braces, Invisalign is an often ideal alternative for adults seeking a straighter smile.
At Pure Dental, we’ve helped countless patients restore confidence in their smiles. Using leading-edge dental technologies, combined with decades of experience, our dental team offers effective, speedy and reliable solutions for crooked and misaligned teeth.
What is Invisalign?
Representative of the marvels of modern dentistry, Invisalign is the pinnacle of orthodontic technology, helping patients achieve a picture-perfect smile without the need for unsightly and painful metal wires and braces.
Invisalign uses a series of customized clear retainers worn throughout the day. Due to its virtual invisibility, Invisalign is preferred by both teens and adults alike, allowing them to achieve the results of braces without feeling embarrassed when smiling.
How Does Invisalign Work?
For each patient, a custom set of clear retainers is uniquely matched to their teeth and desired end result. Each clear retainer is designed to be worn between 20-22 hours per day, and can be removed for meals and special occasions.
With each set of Invisalign retainers, the patient’s teeth are gently moved into position, helping make the process both comfortable and effective.
Guided by advanced 3D imaging and projections, adjustments can be made throughout the process (if necessary), with patients being able to see the projected results of what their teeth will look like at the end of the treatment.
Results from Invisalign can be noticeable within weeks of treatment, but generally between 20-50 sets of retainer trays are necessary to achieve the desired end result. All in all, the treatment course lasts between 9-18 months for most patients.
What is the Process of Getting Invisalign Like?
Initial Evaluation: During this appointment, your orthodontist will evaluate your gums, mouth, teeth and dental records to determine if Invisalign is an appropriate treatment option.
3D Imaging: A virtual blueprint of your oral cavity, gums and teeth. 3D imaging is used to make your sets of retainers, precisely made to fit comfortably.
New Aligners: Each set of clear retainer trays is worn for a period of a few weeks. At this point that set is disposed of, a new appointment made, and a new set ordered based on comfort levels and progression.
This process continues until the 9-18 month mark, or until desired results are achieved.
How Long Does it Take to See Results with Invisalign?
While traditional braces can take as long as two years before final results are achieved, Invisalign offers the promise of potentially reducing this timeframe significantly.
For some patients, Invisalign can achieve similar or better results than embarrassing metal braces in about half the time. That said, most Camarillo area patients will need to continue treatment for approximately 9-18 months to see the best results.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
As compared to traditional orthodontics, Invisalign offers several key benefits.
Improved Comfort: Metal braces are known for being uncomfortable (and in some cases) outright painful. Camarillo area patients often report Invisalign to be gentle and easy to get used to.
No Wires Necessary: The old way of using braces isn’t just painful, the wires often caused issues with trapping food. Invisalign is wire-free, using gentle pressure instead of harsh wire rigs to nudge teeth into position.
Can Be Removed When Eating: Eat all of your favorite foods with ease! These clear retainers can be removed to eat, for special occasions, and when brushing your teeth.
Faster Results: For some patients, Invisalign can produce results quicker than traditional orthodontics, with results seen in as little as half the time of traditional braces.
Precise Monitoring and Better Control: Advanced technology and 3D mapping enable you and your orthodontist to see forecasted changes to the appearance of your teeth at each visit, tracking progress and enabling your orthodontist to fine-tune changes to produce optimal end results.
Discretion: Being nearly invisible to the naked eye, Invisalign is a discreet and private alternative to a gaudy ‘metal mouth’. This makes Invisalign an ideal solution for self-conscious adults and teens alike.
