Invisalign – The Clear Braces
It’s such a simple and natural thing, but when you feel self-conscious about the way your teeth look, putting on a smile starts to feel anything but natural.
With Invisalign, you can change that.
Discreet, convenient, and comfortable, Invisalign is your path to the smile you’ve always wanted. Meticulously planned out by the orthodontic experts here at Pleasant Hill Dental, we’ll put Invisalign to work realigning your teeth – so when the moment arrives, you can just smile.
How it works
Step 1: Visit us for a consultation.
The first step to getting a well-aligned, healthy smile is talking to us. We’ll answer all your questions and make sure Invisalign is right for you.
Step 2: Get your Invisalign plan.
Once you’ve decided to get Invisalign, we’ll take a detailed 3D scan of your mouth to create your custom-fit clear aligners and a personalized correction plan.
Step 3: Start aligning your teeth.
Now you’ll begin wearing your aligners. Every 2 weeks, you’ll switch to a new set of aligners that takes you closer to your goal of having a beautiful, healthy smile.
Step 4: Rock your stunning new smile
Got it, did it, done. At about the same time (or less!) than it would’ve taken with braces, you now have a smile that’s bursting with style and confidence.
Will I need to wear a retainer?
Unfortunately, you will have to wear a retainer for around 9 to 12 months after your Invisalign treatment has finished.
Why? Because your jawbone became softer during the orthodontic process. The retainer helps keep your teeth in their new, correct positions as your jawbone hardens again.
Your Invisalign treatment is designed using the high-resolution power of Pleasant Hill Dental’s cutting-edge 3D intraoral scanner. It’s accurate and totally painless, plus it comes with the added bonus of being much more comfortable than those messy traditional impression molds.
And since it’s all digital, everything happens faster. Instead of waiting days or even weeks for your impressions to be crafted, you’ll get a preview of what your aligned smile will look like just minutes after the scan has finished.
Invisalign vs. Braces
It’s a clear choice. And not just because it’s transparent.
At Pleasant Hill Dental and around the world, clear aligners like Invisalign have skyrocketed in popularity, and for a good reason: they’re more comfortable and less awkward than braces while still delivering results that are just as good.
It lets you eat what you want – when you get traditional braces, you might have to say goodbye to some of your favorite foods for a while. Not with Invisalign.
It’s better for your oral health – since it’s removable, Invisalign makes flossing and brushing super easy, protecting you from plaque and gum sensitivity.
It’s fully removable – although you should wear it for 22 hours each day, you still have the flexibility of being able to take easily off your aligners if you need to.
It’s more comfortable – free from metal wires and created with body-safe, smooth-edged plastic; it’s more comfortable for your gums and cheeks.
What does Invisalign fix?
Invisalign isn’t just for simple or mild cases. In the hands of an experienced Invisalign provider like Pleasant Hill Dental, Invisalign can tackle all kinds of problems caused by teeth misalignment, including:
Ah, crowded teeth. When people think of Invisalign and orthodontics, this is usually what comes to mind – and rightly so! Invisalign can safely correct problems with crowded teeth, safeguarding you from oral health troubles like uneven tooth wear, gum tissue inflammation, and increased plaque buildup.
When the upper and lower teeth in your mouth don’t touch, this is what’s called an “open bite”. It can make chewing or biting into food more challenging than it should be, and it can also result in your teeth wearing down at different rates.
Oh, spaced teeth. They’re easy to clean, but a lot of people just don’t like how they look. Plus, the gaps can mean sensitive gum areas between your teeth are easily exposed, leading to frequent irritation or minor damage.
When your upper front teeth stick out beyond your lower front teeth, that’s an overbite. A little bit of overbite is okay – some people even think it’s ideal – but when those upper front teeth stick out too far, it can cause issues like premature tooth wear, enamel loss, mouth irritation, and jaw pain.
An underbite is the result of your lower jaw growing too far forward or your upper jaw not growing far forward enough. Like an open bite, it makes eating and chewing difficult and also contributes to excessive pressure on the wrong parts of your mouth.
If your front or back teeth aren’t aligned, your jaws might start to adjust on their own to compensate for that lack of alignment. After a while, one side of your lower jaw may become longer than the other in what’s known as a crossbite. Invisalign fixes these alignment issues to give you better long-term health and a more stable bite.
Make your smile better in every way.
