Our Susanville Dental Specialties office achieved an Invisalign distinction by successfully treating decades worth of patients and delivering a smile they are happy with. We make a point to stay current on the latest technological advances within the orthodontic industry and the Invisalign space. Whether you are interested in traditional braces or a more discrete treatment option, our goal is to provide exceptional care to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a clear alternative to traditional metal braces, particularly for patients seeking a more “discrete” treatment option. We scan your teeth using iTero scanning technology to create a 3-D rendering of your bite, which represents a far more accurate impression than a traditional plaster mold could produce. After obtaining a precise impression, advanced computer technology makes a series of clear plastic aligners custom-made to fit your teeth to move them over time. Depending on your orthodontic needs, a treatment plan can consist of 12-48 aligners. Since Invisalign does not use wires or brackets, this treatment option is “unseen,” virtually undetectable by others. Another advantage of Invisalign is that overall treatment time tends to be shorter than traditional metal braces.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Every clear aligner in your Invisalign treatment plan is precisely calibrated to move your teeth toward their ideal position. Each aligner is worn for approximately two weeks before replacing it with the next aligner. (Please return your used aligners on your next visit.) Note: You should only remove your aligner to eat, brush, floss or move onto the next aligner. Before you know it, you’ll have the smile you’ve always wanted!
