Invisalign clear aligners are a modern, effective orthodontic solution addressing mild to moderate dental misalignment. During your initial visit, Dr. Ellenikiotis will sit down with you to determine if you're an ideal candidate for Invisalign clear braces. It's important to note that the severity of your alignment issues plays a crucial role in determining whether clear braces suit your specific needs.
The treatment consists of a series of clear aligners that place pressure on your teeth to put them in their desired positions. Invisalign treatment eliminates the need for wires and brackets, simplifying treatment overall. One of the more appealing aspects of Invisalign aligners is their transparent appearance, which helps people who feel self-conscious about traditional braces wear their aligners confidently in public.
Invisalign addresses many of the same misalignment problems as traditional braces, including minor to moderate issues. One of the primary differences is that invisible braces are transparent and removable. Here are some problems that are commonly corrected with Invisalign clear braces:
Our team at Ellenikiotis and Associates Orthodontics prioritizes your education because it's crucial for your Invisalign treatment's success. We'll break down important factors, such as how poor oral hygiene habits can reduce the effectiveness of your clear aligners and potentially result in you not receiving the results you want.
We'll also explain the treatment guidelines and ensure you're comfortable and confident about the requirements, like wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours daily. By being transparent with you about your treatments at your consultation, we'll ensure you're getting orthodontic care you feel confident and comfortable about.
Our dentist and his team are happy to answer any questions you may have about Invisalign treatment. Our team is here for you whether you'd like to know how to care for your aligners at home or if any foods or beverages can damage them. Some of the most frequently asked questions about Invisalign treatment include:
How do I maintain my clear aligners?
It's crucial that you maintain proper daily care to ensure their effectiveness. Our team recommends cleaning your clear aligners with water and a neutral soap using a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush them inside and out.
Is Invisalign treatment right for me if I've previously had braces?
Yes. We treat patients with invisible braces who have had traditional braces in the past but whose teeth have shifted.
Are Invisalign clear aligners resistant to staining?
No. Consuming darkly colored food or drinks like coffee and tomato sauce while wearing your clear aligners can quickly stain them.
What should I do if I lose an aligner?
Although our practice stresses the importance of keeping track of your aligners, mistakes can happen. If you misplace an aligner, you should use your previous aligner as a placeholder and contact us to find out if you need a replacement.
At Ellenikiotis and Associates Orthodontics, we proudly provide quality Invisalign clear aligner treatment. Our dental team leverages years of experience to make your overall experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We're excited to help you get the straight and beautiful smile of your dreams. Contact us today to schedule your next appointment and get the San Jose clear braces you need!
