Invisalign® Clear Braces for Comfort and Convenience
At Mt. Pleasant Dental Care, we are pleased to offer Invisalign to San Jose adults and responsible teens. This is an excellent option for teens and adults who want to improve their smile without the look, feel, and hassle of traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are clear dental trays made of rigid thermoplastic that doesn’t contain gluten, BPA, or latex. The trays are customized to fit the contours of your mouth and teeth, applying gentle pressure to straighten teeth and align the jaw.
Bite problems that are commonly corrected with Invisalign include mild to moderate cases of:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Unwanted gaps between teeth
Our dental practitioners will assess your teeth and determine if you are an ideal candidate for Invisalign. We will use the iTero scanner to take accurate digital impressions of your teeth. Using the 3D images, we can begin planning your treatment digitally. This allows us to control every variable involved to ensure that treatment is predictable and efficient. You'll also be able to see how your smile will look when treatment is complete.
We will send off your digital scan and impression to the Invisalign lab to craft a series of trays for your smile. Generally, each tray should be replaced every two weeks as your teeth become straighter.
Why Choose Invisalign?
There are several advantages to Invisalign for you to enjoy. Here are a few of the qualities that make Invisalign clear braces such a popular treatment choice:
Comfortable: Metal braces can be uncomfortable at first installation and when the archwire is tightened. While there can be some soreness in the first day or two after receiving a new aligner, this is typically mild and goes away quickly. The aligner trays are smooth, fit well, and are comfortable to wear.
Removable: Invisalign braces can be taken out of the mouth to make brushing, flossing, eating, and playing sports more convenient. Without wires and brackets, your oral health is less likely to suffer during the treatment process.
Discreet: Invisalign aligners are very inconspicuous and most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. With this, you get to correct your smile discreetly.
Faster Treatment: The average Invisalign treatment typically takes 12-18 months from start to finish. Also, you’ll have fewer dental appointments since we map out your treatment from the start and you’ll get to switch to the next set of aligners in the comfort of your home.
Fast Braces for Straighter Teeth in Less Time
We understand that some patients wish their teeth were straighter but are apprehensive about undergoing orthodontic treatment because of the long treatment time. In spite of the great results that braces produce, the thought of having them for a year or two may be a deterrent.
Mt. Pleasant Dental Care is excited to offer FASTBRACES® in San Jose to help bridge the gap between traditional braces and nothing at all. Its innovative bracket system shortens treatment time while still being able to treat a wide range of malocclusions. The triangular brackets and square-like nickel-titanium wire reaches down to the root of your teeth for comprehensive orthodontic treatment.
Teeth alignment and straightening with traditional braces is typically done in two steps. The crown is directed into proper alignment and then the root of the tooth is moved. Each stage may take a whole year, which is why treatment with conventional braces often lasts two years. With FASTBRACES, the two-step process is combined into a single process. The braces move both the crown and the root at the same time, speeding up treatment time. In fact, you can achieve quality results in as little as 100 days.
In addition to the significant reduction in the length of treatment, there are several other benefits that make FASTBRACES a great orthodontic option for many patients. Some of these benefits include:
- Dramatic reduction in pain and discomfort
- Does not require extraction
- Easier to clean around the brackets
- Safe and effective
- Dramatic results in half the time of traditional braces
