August 4, 2022

At Watsonville Family Dental, we provide you with one of the most popular solutions within dentistry, Invisalign treatment. This orthodontic system involves a set of clear aligners that will shift your teeth into the desired place. Unlike traditional braces, there are no metal or uncomfortable wires used in Invisalign.

You might feel discouraged thinking about the normal metal braces. It is understandable that you do not want to wear something easily noticeable for years. In addition, you might feel embarrassed about smiling or talking in front of your friends. You deserve to have an option that does not make you feel self-conscious or affect your confidence. That’s why we recommend Invisalign.

What is Invisalign, And How Does It work?

Invisalign treatment is an orthodontic treatment that is practically an invisible way of straightening your teeth using cutting-edge 3D computer imaging technology.

Invisalign treatment uses clear aligners developed from computer images and impressions a dentist takes from your mouth. While the traditional braces use fixed brackets and wires to pull your teeth in the desired position. Invisalign aligns your teeth using a series of molds across a series of months to force your teeth to their new and improved position.

The Benefits of Invisalign

The benefits of getting  Invisalign in Watsonville over other traditional methods like braces include:

  • An Invisible appearance. The Invisalign trays are invisible. They are clear and won’t distract your face or smile. Thus, it is a great option for teens, adults, and young adults that are not comfortable with braces.
  • The Invisalign trays are made from smooth plastic, thus making them as comfortable as traditional metal braces. In addition, there are no extruding/ sharp edges.
  • Improved Cleanliness. Invisalign trays are removable. Thus, when you want to floss or brush your teeth, you can remove the the trays, clean them, and pop them back in. the arrays can also be cleaned using a soft toothbrush and a solution provided to you by your dentist.
  • It saves your time. With an Invisalign treatment, you will be able to spend less time in the dentist’s office as you only need to visit every six weeks on average. However, other teeth straightening options like braces might need more time and appointments with your dentist.
