Invisalign® Invisible Braces

Many of our patients wish to remedy crooked teeth or bite irregularities but don't want to wear traditional braces, which they may feel to be inconvenient or unattractive. We have an extraordinary solution for such patients at our office in La Jolla: orthodontics with Invisalign® invisible braces. With Invisalign®, patients wear a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually move their teeth into the optimal positions quickly, comfortably, and discreetly.

Your Invisalign® Treatment

Invisalign San DiegoFor patients at our practice orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® invisible braces begins with a consultation. When you meet our doctors for your initial consultation, they will discuss your treatment goals and give you a full overview of the entire Invisalign® realignment process. Then impressions are made which will be sent to a specialized lab that will manufacture your custom aligners.

Patients wear their Invisalign® aligners for two to four weeks and then move on to the next set of aligners in order to gradually change the positions of their teeth. The aligners are worn day and night but are removable for eating, brushing, and flossing. Most of our patients complete their Invisalign® invisible braces orthodontics program in about a year, and some achieve straight smiles in as little as six months. Of course, treatment time varies with each patient's specific needs, and our doctors can help you establish realistic expectations.

Because Invisalign® aligners are made out of clear plastic, most people don't even notice that our patients are wearing them. Another benefit that patients enjoy with Invisalign® invisible braces is that they do not have to disrupt their lifestyles at all, as they might have to do with traditional metal brackets. If you live in La Jolla or elsewhere in San Diego and are interested in Invisalign® invisible braces orthodontics, contact Scripps Center for Dental Care to schedule a consultation.

A Full Range of Orthodontic Options

While most of our patients choose to straighten their smiles with Invisalign® invisible braces, we know that each patient has specific cosmetic and jaw-function goals. To meet these needs, the team at Scripps Center for Dental Care offer a full range of treatment options involving orthodontics, including:

  • Young patient interceptive treatment
  • Invisible braces
  • Lingual braces
  • Pre- and post-surgical orthodontic care
  • Retention services
  • Bite splint therapy

For patients who wish to undergo other cosmetic dentistry procedures as well, we offer sedation dentistry, which allows patients to relax in comfort for the duration of their treatments. Many of our patients who undergo orthodontic treatment also choose to undergo teeth whitening in order to give their newly straightened smiles a dazzling glow.
