CALL US TODAY
Pearl Cosmetic & Family Dentistry is one of the leading Premier providers of orthodontic and cosmetic dental services in San Diego, with over 20 years of creating beautiful smiles for patients of all ages and walks of life. Invisalign is one of our most requested procedures, because patients want to enhance their smile without the annoyance and drawbacks of metal braces.
The Clear & Superior Alternative To Braces
With the revolutionary technology of Invisalign, you can get the smile you always wanted without having to resign yourself to wearing metal braces. Metal braces are no longer a necessary evil when it comes to straightening your teeth – so you don’t have to worry about irritated lips and cheeks, and you can play sports without worries of mouth injuries that can put your lips and cheeks at risk for serious tissue damage. Less painful and more convenient than traditional braces, Invisalign wearers can eat what they want and do what they want. In addition, Invisalign is also more cost effective and efficient, because there’s no need for tightening sessions – just pop in the new set and you’re done!
What Is Invisalign & How Does It Work?
Invisalign® is a unique system of invisible aligners that straighten your teeth comfortably without the hassle of metal bands, brackets or wires. It’s custom-made to fit your teeth and is easy to remove – so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss anytime you need to. Because Invisalign is lightweight and clear, no one will know you are wearing them – unlike the chunky metal braces of yesteryear.
Invisalign® uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to customize the aligners to the unique shape of each patient’s mouth. These custom-made aligners are made to adjust your teeth in increments of 2 weeks, so they should be replaced with another set every 2 weeks until you reach the straightness and alignment you desire.
What Dental Issues Can Invisalign® Correct?
Besides straightening crooked or misaligned teeth, Invisalign® can correct crowding and remove large spaces between your teeth. It can also correct severe cases of overbites, underbites and crossbites.
What Does The Invisalign® Orthodontic Treatment Involve?
At Pearl Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we carefully assess your candidacy for Invisalign before we plan your course of treatment. Once it has been determined that Invisalign can benefit your dental health, Dr. Mojaver will make impressions of your bite and send it to Invisalign® for processing.
Your will receive customized aligners made using advanced 3-D computer imaging based on your bite impressions. These clear aligners must be worn at all times, only to be removed when you eat, drink, brush, and floss.
Treatment time and the number of aligners needed to complete a dental correction will vary on a case to case basis, depending on severity and what the patient wants to achieve. Typically, most Invisalign treatments last about a year from start to finish.
Will My Insurance Cover Invisalign®?
If your dental insurance includes orthodontic treatment, then Invisalign® should be covered under your policy. However, it’s best to give your insurance company a call just to confirm.
How Do I Know If Invisalign Is Right For Me?
There are many reasons why a patient would opt for invisible braces over traditional metal braces:
- You work in an environment where you must speak and interact with others most of the time, and leaving a good impression is a requirement rather than an option
- You have a propensity for canker cores
- You play sports
- You don’t want to stop eating or drinking acidic or spicy foods
- You are over 14 years old
The reasons for choosing invisible braces over metal braces are more than just aesthetic. Constant irritation of the mouth’s delicate tissue can cause additional health and dental problems, so in many cases the healthiest option for orthodontic treatment is the one that minimizes pain and discomfort.
