Get Straighter Teeth Fast With Invisalign

Invisalign is a method of orthodontic treatment that varies greatly from the traditional set of metal braces. The system involves sets of clear, removable teeth-aligners to progressively straighten teeth quickly. Since April 2008, more than 730,000 patients have chosen Invisalign as a treatment for crooked or misaligned teeth.

Dr. Derek B. Hauser, DDS, is a leading family dentist in Riverside County who cares about patient comfort and confidence. After 20 in the field, he has perfected his craft and offers both general and cosmetic treatments.

Steps to Straighter Teeth

If you’re after straight, perfect teeth, the first step is setting up an appointment with an Invisalign dental provider. Ask if it’s the right treatment for you. In cases when more dramatic improvements are necessary, metal braces might be required.

During your appointment, Dr. Hauser will take a series of X-rays, photographs and impressions of your teeth in order to create a digital, three-dimensional image. This image will then help him map out a treatment plan that fits your goals and teeth structure.

Using this same technology, Dr. Hauser will be able to show you a virtual representation of what your teeth will look like throughout the straightening process.

After the X-rays, you will receive your first set of aligners. These plastic trays comprise BPA-free plastic that is comfortable and smooth. The aligners should be worn throughout the entire day, but you can temporarily remove them while brushing, flossing or eating.

As time passes, your smile will be more aligned and straight. Most patients say it only takes a day or two to grow accustomed to using the Invisalign trays.

Every two weeks to four weeks, you will receive a new set of aligners. These will replace the previous set and continue the straightening process. Occasional checkups with your dentist are advised so that he can monitor the straightening process and answer any questions you may have.

Treatment generally takes up to one year for most adults. But for teens, it can last up to as long as the treatment of traditional braces.

Invisalign Is A Great Way to Get Straighter Teeth Fast

There are several reasons to choose Invisalign over braces, including:

  • Virtually invisible
  • Smaller amount of orthodontist visits
  • No rubber-bands
  • Easy removal
  • Proven to work

The disadvantages of traditional braces include:

  • Made from uncomfortable brackets and wires
  • Brushing and flossing requires more effort, and dental health often suffers
  • Food restrictions

Invisalign is great for teens and adults alike. Because the aligners are made of a smooth, clear plastic, no one will be able to tell that you are wearing them. In fact, they are so comfortable you may even forget you’re wearing them yourself! Also, eating isn’t a problem—with Invisalign, you can eat whatever you please without having to worry about getting food stuck in wires.

Other Reasons People Turn to Invisalign

For adults, braces not only are embarrassing, but they might appear unprofessional. As shallow as it may sound, studies have shown that appearance can influence job acquisition and performance.

Invisalign works fast and is virtually undetectable. Whether you’re giving a business presentation, getting married or starting a new career, Invisalign may be able to give you a winning smile.

Feel Comfortable and Confident at Lakefront Family Dentistry

Your first visit with Dr. Hauser will be a one-on-one meeting, followed by a 3D imaging process. Once he receives your digital impressions, you will receive your first set of custom-fitting plastic aligners. Dr. Hauser administers several aligners at one time to reduce the number of required visits.

In two to four weeks, you should change out the aligners in order to help move the process along. Dr. Hauser will periodically check on your progress and will make adjustments if necessary.

The process usually takes up to a year, but Dr. Hauser has had patients improve within just a few weeks!
