Invisalign Braces in Madera, CA
Whether you want to change your smile because of health or aesthetics, lengthy treatment options can feel daunting, especially if it means a mouth full of brackets and wires. For some patients, traditional orthodontics just does not feel like a reasonable option because of the brackets, wires, and the affect they have on your appearance and speech. That's fixing teeth without braces can solve the problem.
For patients who want orthodontics, but want to avoid the hassle and self-consciousness that comes along with traditional braces, at Keledjian Dental, we offer Invisalign as an effective and convenient solution providing clear braces for kids and adults.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that gently moves your teeth over time into an ideal position. The difference is that instead of metal or porcelain brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to move your teeth.
In our office, Dr. Jason Keledjian will take impressions and some other measurements of your teeth. We will use x-rays and other diagnostic imaging to determine the course of your Invisalign treatment.
Once we collect all of the data necessary, we will send it off to the Invisalign lab where they will manufacture your plastic aligners. The aligners will fit snugly over your teeth. No one should notice them.
How Does Invisalign Work?
When you receive your aligners, Dr. Keledjian will instruct you when to change them out. Usually, it is about every two weeks or so. You should wear your Invisalign clear braces at least twenty-two hours a day. You will also maintain regular exams at Keledjian Dental so that we can monitor your progress and make any adjustments necessary.
Because the aligners are completely clear, you can watch your progress all the way through treatment. When you finish treatment, you will receive a retainer to preserve your beautiful new smile.
Convenience with Invisalign
Because your aligners are removable, you can take them out to eat. It’s also much easier to keep food out of your teeth because you can brush, floss, and clean your aligners easily. This makes caring for your teeth during treatment so much easier than with traditional orthodontics.
The feel of Invisalign on teeth is very smooth and comfortable. You will not have the sores inside your cheeks like you have with regular orthodontics.
Is Invisalign Worth It?
Invisalign works best for teens and adults. While some orthodontic procedures are too complex for Invisalign, most common problems are good candidates for treatment. Dr. Jason Keledjian will be able to recommend a treatment that will give you the best results. He will always be honest with you about what treatment will achieve your desired outcome.
