Invisalign Treatments in La Mesa
Misaligned teeth can cause serious issues for the rest of your mouth. They can be uncomfortable and are difficult to floss and clean thoroughly, which can lead to cavities. For many adults in the La Mesa and El Cajon area, traditional braces aren’t a viable or appealing option.
Fortunately, A Shop for Smiles offers Invisalign, an alternative to metal braces. These clear aligners are removable and virtually invisible, so you can floss and brush normally without avoiding foods like popcorn. Invisalign moves your teeth gradually, so all you have to do is change out your aligners every two weeks.
What is Invisalign?
Instead of metal wires and brackets found in traditional braces, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to straighten your teeth. These aligners are completely removable and almost invisible, making them a more comfortable experience than brackets and wires. As your teeth change, you’ll change out your aligner for a new set every two weeks.
Advantages Patients Enjoy
There are many benefits that make Invisalign a popular choice for those who want to straighten their smiles. Invisalign provides the following benefits:
- Comfort | Custom-made aligners fit over teeth perfectly.
- Subtlety | Each set of aligners is made with a clear, BPA-free material.
- Convenience | Because the aligners are easy to remove, you can enjoy your favorite foods and brush and floss normally.
- Efficiency | Traditional braces can take up to two years to straighten your teeth, while Invisalign typically results in beautiful, straight teeth in nine months to a year.
How does Invisalign Work?
Before your treatment, Dr. Hagstrom will meet with you to discuss your options and treatment plan. Once you have your aligners, you will switch them out every two weeks while your teeth continue to straighten.
Each aligner adjusts your teeth a little bit until they are finally in their proper positions. Our Invisalign process is fast, simple, and effective. Dr. Hagstrom has more than 13 years of experience repositioning teeth using Invisalign.
