Many people are dissatisfied with the appearance of their smile, sometimes because of crooked teeth or malocclusion. With advances in dental technologies, it is now possible to straighten your teeth discreetly without the use of traditional metal braces and wires in Valencia.

Dr. Fariba Bolourchi recommends the Innovative Invisalign system to straighten your teeth without the discomfort and inconvenience of traditional braces.

Invisalign Near Me, Valencia

Invisalign has become increasingly popular in recent years for several reasons, including:
– Discrete way to improve your smile without anyone knowing
– Removable aligners – so you can maintain your diet and dental cleaning routine
– Fewer visits to the dentist – dental visits are placed at 6-8 week intervals to assess the progress of the treatment and to receive your next 3-4 sets of aligners

We Serve Patients from all over the Santa Clarita Valley Area

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a modern, innovative treatment program for realigning your smile. While traditional braces are composed of metal wires and brackets attached to your teeth, Invisalign is a series of clear trays uniquely designed to straighten your teeth progressively. Rather than being attached to your teeth, Invisalign trays (or aligners) are worn similarly to mouth guards. However, unlike mouth guards, they are made of a very thin, flexible plastic composed of polyurethane resins—strong enough to realign your teeth yet light enough to be worn comfortably. Unlike traditional braces, which require seeing an orthodontist, your dentist can administer Invisalign treatments.

Benefits of Invisalign

With traditional braces, your realignment process will likely involve several years of frequent, invasive visits to the orthodontist to tighten wires and fix broken brackets, sores in your mouth from protruding wires, a complicated system of rubber bands, a long list of banned foods, difficulty with brushing and flossing, and a highly visible metallic look. On the other hand, Invisalign treatments are less invasive, more comfortable, and do not require you to avoid your favorite foods. Also, because you can easily pop Invisalign trays in and out of your mouth, you can remove them to brush and floss your teeth and avoid the staining that often occurs with traditional braces. Furthermore, the clear, thin Invisalign aligners are barely noticeable, allowing you to realign your smile with confidence!

How Invisalign works

The Invisalign system requires you to wear a series of custom-made trays fabricated from smooth, translucent material that is specially made for wear over teeth. Each set of aligners moves your teeth incrementally for a period of two weeks, and is replaced by the next set of trays in the series until the completion of your treatment in 6 to 18 months depending on your case.

If you’re a suitable candidate for Invisalign, we will take detailed photos of your teeth and mouth, as well as your bite. X-rays may also be used to create a digital roadmap of your custom treatment. The Invisalign software is used to predict how your teeth will be moved over time until they reach the desired position. You can even view the results to expect at any point in the course of the treatment, as well as the final result. Your series of custom aligners will then be fabricated to facilitate the movement of your teeth.

With our advanced Invisalign system, straightening your teeth is a more pleasant and hassle-free experience compared to traditional metal braces.

What’s the Procedure for Invisalign?

The first step on your Invisalign journey is to set up a consultation with your dentist. Your dentist will review your dental history and examine your mouth to see if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. Most likely, you will be cleared for treatment, and your dentist can begin the process. It starts with creating a digital molding of your mouth, using scanners, cameras, and x-rays to create an accurate image. This will be sent to the Invisalign lab, where customized trays will be made just for you. Once your trays are ready, you will see your dentist for a fitting and be well on your way to your perfect smile! You will not be required to see the dentist every time you switch to a new aligner, but you will have regular visits to make sure everything progresses in the right direction.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Invisalign Hurt?2023-08-21T17:40:49+00:00

Most patients would agree that Invisalign is less painful than traditional braces. They are designed to be comfortable and lack the sharp edges and frequent tightening with braces. You will also find that your Invisalign appointments are far less invasive than those for braces. You will, however, experience some discomfort as your teeth move into place, especially the first day or two after starting on a new set of trays. Just remember, the pain you feel is proof that your best smile is well on its way!

How Long Do Invisalign Retainers Last?2023-08-21T17:40:14+00:00

Invisalign offers retainers in addition to aligners. While aligners only last around two weeks before they are no longer effective, retainers are made to keep your teeth from moving once treatment is over. This means that you can wear your Invisalign retainer for six months before requiring a replacement.

Does Invisalign Work Faster Than Braces?2023-08-21T17:39:43+00:00

Invisalign generally works faster than traditional braces. Treatment can last anywhere from six months to two years, significantly decreasing the average time spent in braces.

Can Invisalign Close Gaps2023-08-21T17:38:53+00:00

Yes! Gaps are a piece of cake for Invisalign! Closing gaps is one of Invisalign’s best talents!

How Do I Clean My Invisalign Trays?2023-08-21T17:37:00+00:00

Rinse your Invisalign trays each time you remove them. Clean your tray thoroughly. You can use an Invisalign cleaning kit, a retainer cleaning product, or even a toothbrush with water and a drop of liquid soap. If you want to soak your tray, create a 50/50 mix of warm water and white distilled vinegar and soak it for around 30 minutes. It is recommended that you stay away from using denture cleaners, coarse brushes, toothpaste, or mouthwash to clean your trays.

What Can I Eat With Invisalign?2023-08-21T17:36:17+00:00

One of the best things about Invisalign is that you can eat whatever you want! Just be sure to remove the aligners first. Eating with the aligners in will damage them and trap food particles inside. However, brushing your teeth after every meal is essential to avoid collecting bacteria inside the trays. If you cannot brush, rinse your mouth and the trays before putting them back in.

Can I Smoke With Invisalign?2023-08-21T17:35:25+00:00

It can be tricky to use Invisalign for heavy smokers because the nicotine and other chemicals involved can damage the delicate structure of the aligners. Another complicating feature is the tar found in tobacco products, which can stain the aligner trays even if you take them out to smoke. When you wear Invisalign as a smoker, you increase the damage done to your mouth by trapping all those chemicals inside the trays. If you want to get the most out of your Invisalign treatment, consider quitting smoking several weeks before you get started.

Can Invisalign Fix an Overbite?2023-08-21T17:34:43+00:00

An overbite can cause unnecessary wear and tear on your enamel, the protective substance on the outer layer of your teeth. Luckily, you can correct an overbite with Invisalign! A severe overbite might require additional corrective measures, but Invisalign can easily correct moderate overbites.

How Long Do I Have to War Retainers After Invisalign?2023-08-21T17:34:19+00:00

Generally, you should wear your retainer at all times, except during meals, for the first year after Invisalign. It takes 12 months for your jaw to rebuild the bone that was softened during treatment. After the new bone has been deposited and your teeth can stabilize, you should be able to decrease retainer time to only overnight. You will need to wear your retainer every night for as long as you want your teeth to remain straight!

Can I Drink Coffee With Invisalign?2023-08-21T17:33:38+00:00

Like many adults, your morning cup of coffee might be a crucial daily ritual that nobody better mess with! You should remove your aligners before drinking anything other than water, always keeping in mind that 22-hour magic number for daily wear time. It is also a good idea to brush and rinse your aligners and mouth as soon as possible after enjoying your coffee to avoid staining both your Invisalign and your teeth. Finally, make sure your coffee is cooled down enough so that it will not melt the plastic trays. Rest assured, you can still enjoy your cup of joe with Invisalign.

Can I Chew Gum With Invisalign?2023-08-21T17:33:04+00:00

The good news is that, unlike with braces, you can eat whatever you want with Invisalign. That includes gum. However, you need to remove your aligners before eating food or chewing gum. Chewing sugar-free gum is a great way to remove food particles and clean your teeth after a meal whenever brushing is not an option. However, be sure to put your aligner back on as soon as possible so that you do not go over that two-hour daily time limit of not wearing it.

How Long Do I Have to Wear Invisalign?2023-08-21T17:32:29+00:00

The answer to this question depends upon a variety of factors. How old are you? How misaligned are your teeth? And how conscientious are you about wearing your aligners? If you diligently wear your aligners for no less than 22 hours a day, you will have a straighter smile in no time! Because adolescents are still growing, teens tend to experience a shorter treatment time than adults. Also, the less severe your misalignment is, the less time you will need your Invisalign. Finally, the amount of time required for treatment largely depends on how consistently you wear your aligners. The average treatment time spans from six months to two years.

Do I Need a Retainer After Invisalign?2023-08-21T17:31:53+00:00

Your teeth are beautiful but stubborn, and they will want to return to their original positions after treatment. This is why retainers are required after any form of smile realignment, including Invisalign.

How Does Invisalign Straighten Teeth?2023-08-21T17:31:21+00:00

Invisalign trays apply a steady but gentle pressure on your teeth to gradually nudge them along toward a more suitable position. It is not painful, but the slight discomfort you might feel is a message from your teeth that the treatment is working! The pain should go away within a day or two of starting a new aligner. Each set of trays comes in stages, designed to progress your teeth steadily toward the desired result. You will wear each set for about two weeks.
