If you have crowded teeth, large gaps, or crooked and misshapen teeth, Invisalign can improve the appearance of your smile. These clear aligners eliminate the need for highly visible traditional braces, in most cases. Dodds Dental is proud to offer Invisalign for our Long Beach patients who would like to avoid the wire and bracket system of traditional braces. Call us today to schedule your consultation!

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a system of clear plastic aligners, and it is quite similar to other aligner orthodontics like ClearCorrect and MTM Clear Aligners. All of these systems use special, custom-built aligners made of transparent, durable plastic to gradually shift the position of your teeth and correct minor orthodontic issues.

Not all orthodontic patients can be treated by Invisalign, however. It’s usually only appropriate for minor-to-moderate orthodontic cases. Serious bite issues and other severe orthodontic problems may require correction with traditional braces. Because Invisalign is nearly invisible, it’s very popular among older teens and adults who want a straighter smile with low-stress treatment in the Long Beach area.

The invisalign Process

How Does invisalign work?

Once you’ve had a consultation with one of our dentists, your custom set of aligners will be crafted just for you. Then, you’ll begin wearing your aligners for 22+ hours per day, removing them only to brush, floss, eat and drink.

About every 2 weeks, you’ll switch to a new set of aligners as your teeth are gently shifted into their new position. You’ll come into Dodds Dental for a consultation and check-up every 6 weeks to ensure your treatment is on the right track, and he’ll give you your next sets of aligners. Treatment usually takes between 20-24 sets of aligners, making the average treatment time about a year. However, this may be shorter or longer based on your own unique orthodontic needs.

What Are The Benefits Of Invisalign?

  • Thin and invisible – Invisalign uses advanced, durable plastic aligners that are extremely thin. They’re nearly impossible to recognize and do not affect your ability to speak.
  • Less time in the dentist’s chair – Since you won’t need to visit every two weeks to adjust wires and rubber bands, you’ll end up spending much less time at the dental office than you would with traditional braces.
  • Comfortable and convenient – There are no wires or brackets to poke your mouth, and you can remove your aligners to brush your teeth and eat. In addition, the pressure exerted by Invisalign is more gentle and even than braces, which reduces discomfort.
