Find out if getting clear braces is the right approach to getting the smile you want.

When we think about braces we often envision those awkward, bulky metal braces that everyone can see. We also picture children andInvisalign teens wearing them. But more and more adults are turning to their Torrance  dentists Dr. Sydon Arroyo and Dr. Richard Rounsavelle to get a straighter smile because now we can give you the smile you want without other people noticing your braces.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is made up of a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made to fit over the upper or lower teeth to shift them into the proper alignment. These aligners look similar to whitening trays except that they are designed based off impressions taken of your teeth so you’ll get a comfortable, easy fit that traditional braces can’t always promise.

Why would Invisalign be great for my smile?

There are many reasons why your Torrance  dentists may recommend Invisalign for your smile-straightening needs. If you are a teen or adult who is looking to improve the look of your smile but is embarrassed or concerned about wearing braces, Invisalign can straighten your smile without needing to wear metal brackets and wires. Invisalign is discreet and subtle, so no one will be able to tell that you are wearing your aligners.

Secondly, Invisalign is completely removable so you don’t have to change your lifestyle around to accommodate your orthodontics. You can continue eating all your favorite foods and you don’t have to worry about flossing around wires and fragile metal braces. Invisalign seamlessly fits into your daily routine.

How does Invisalign work?

Once you get your Invisalign, you will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. The only time you will remove them is to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace your aligners with new ones in your treatment plan your teeth will start to move. Each aligner is designed to shift certain teeth a specified amount so that at the end of your treatment you have a straighter smile. 

Invisalign may sound too good to be true but so many patients have benefitted from the effects of these nearly invisible aligners and you can, too! Find out if you are a good candidate for treatment by scheduling a consultation with your dentists in Torrance  .
