Invisalign in Vallejo, CA
Are your teeth crooked? Would love to do something about it but hate the idea of wearing traditional braces with wires and brackets? Are you a professional and want to improve your smile so you can feel proud of the way you look but can’t imagine talking to clients with braces on your teeth?
If you want to improve the appearance of your smile but wearing traditional braces just feels like too big of a commitment, Invisalign may be the perfect solution for you.
Invisalign for Teens and Adults
When traditional orthodontics do not fit into your life, Invisalign is a great option. It works through a similar concept as traditional braces by gently moving your teeth a little at a time. The difference is that Invisalign does not require wires or brackets. In fact, all you need are your clear aligner trays and regular visits to our Vallejo dental office to monitor your progress.
How Invisalign Works
Dr. Morgan Nordstrom will perform a full evaluation of your teeth and bite. She will also discuss your concerns about your smile and talk about how you would like it to change. Once you're ready to begin, she will take digital images and impressions of your teeth for the Invisalign dental lab.
When Invisalign receives all of your information, a special laboratory will make your aligner trays to gradually move your teeth. Dr. Nordstrom will discuss how frequently you should change your trays and how often you need to have regular visits so that we can move your treatment along at the right pace.
A general rule of thumb is to wear your trays for at least 22 out of every 24 hours. You can take them out to eat and brush your teeth. Because your trays are removable, keeping your teeth clean is easy. You can brush and floss normally. Using specially designed floss or mini brushes is not necessary.
How long your treatment takes depends on how far your teeth need to move and your compliance with wearing Invisalign. Because Invisalign fits your teeth snugly, getting used to wearing your trays should be easy. You'll talk normally with just a little practice.

Invisalign is very versatile and can address a number of common orthodontic issues such as crooked teeth, crowded teeth, underbite, overbite, protruding front teeth, and overlapping teeth. The best way to find out if Invisalign will work for you is to see one of our dentists for an evaluation.
