Many people are concerned about the impact of orthodontic treatment on the appearance of their smile. Drs. Anthony Nguyen, and Hesham offer Invisalign® to discreetly correct the alignment of your teeth. These clear plastic aligners improve your smile without the use of metal brackets and wires, giving you a comfortable, effective treatment. We invite you to call AZ Dental at 408-437-1111 to learn more about Invisalign in San Jose, California, and schedule your consultation with our orthodontists.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment which uses a series of custom-made aligning trays to straighten your teeth. These trays are made from clear plastic, and will be switched out every couple of weeks as your treatment progresses. Additionally, these aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, brush, and floss your teeth with ease. Remember, because the aligners are removable, the duration of your treatment will depend on how often you wear your aligners, and for how long.
Invisalign corrects all the same problems as traditional orthodontic treatment, including:
- Gaps between your teeth
- Bad bites (crossbites, overbites, underbites, etc.)
Invisalign is generally preferred over both metal braces and dental veneers. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is discreet, removable, and incredibly comfortable. And unlike veneers, Invisalign actually corrects the alignment of your teeth, rather than covering up the flaws in your smile.
Our orthodontists will begin your treatment by taking 3D images of your entire jaw. These images will then be used to plan your entire treatment from start to finish. A series of aligners will be made for each phase of treatment. You will typically go through 20-30 sets of aligners per arch during your Invisalign treatment.
