Affordable and Discreet Treatment with Invisalign
Crooked, misaligned, and improperly spaced teeth do not just detract from the beauty of your smile, but can also lead to oral health problems such as decay and gum disease. Despite this fact, many people refrain from seeking orthodontic treatment because they are hesitant to wear conspicuous metal braces. Additionally, traditional braces with wires and brackets can be uncomfortable and difficult to clean and maintain. Tijuana Bariatrics in Tijuana, Mexico coordinates with Dr. Julio Serecero to offer Invisalign®. This advanced orthodontic system uses a set of clear, removable aligners to gently and discreetly shift teeth into place.*
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
Invisalign aligners are generally recommended for mild to moderates bite issues and malocclusion. More severe or complex cases can require traditional braces to achieve optimal results. During the consultation, the doctor will discuss your concerns and treatment goals. Your oral health will be assessed and any concerns such as gum disease will first need to be treated. Next, impressions of your teeth will be taken to create your unique series of Invisalign aligners in a dedicated laboratory. This information can also be used to preview what your new smile will look like once treatment is complete.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The Invisalign system is made up of several sets of clear aligner trays, each shaped slightly differently. Patients are required to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, exerting gentle pressure to shift the teeth into place. After this time, the patient will switch to the next aligner in the series. Invisalign trays should only be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, and for special occasions such as a wedding. With proper compliance, many patients can achieve the final results of their treatment within 12 months.*
Benefits of Invisalign
The most obvious benefit of Invisalign is that it is a discreet choice for patients who would otherwise feel self-conscious about drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment. Invisalign aligners can also be easily removed for meals and cleaning, meaning you can maintain good oral hygiene and continue enjoying all your favorite hard, sticky, and crunchy foods.
Invisalign aligners are nearly undetectable, making the treatment an attractive alternative to wearing traditional metal braces.
Many patients also consider Invisalign to be more comfortable than traditional orthodontics. The sharp edges of metal wires and brackets can snag soft tissue and tightening appointments can lead to soreness and tenderness. In contrast, Invisalign features smooth plastic trays and slowly, gently shifts the teeth.
