Learn about Clear Braces from our Fresno Invisalign Provider
For many adults looking to correct crooked teeth, the idea of wearing metal braces for an extended time is unattractive. A Beautiful Smile offers patients the benefits of Invisalign®. Invisalign® is a corrective treatment that is discreet and as effective as traditional braces. As an Invisalign® premier provider in Fresno, CA, Dr. Efema Nwajei can help you achieve the beautiful smile you’ve been looking for.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® offers tremendous benefits, when compared to the requirements of traditional braces.
Unlike traditional orthodontia, Invisalign® does not rely on brackets and wires to correct your teeth. Made of a thermoplastic material, Invisalign® is gentle on sensitive tissues. Aside from some slight tightness when putting on a new tray, Invisalign is very comfortable. This makes it easy for patients stick to their individualized treatment plans and wear the aligners for the recommended 22 hours a day.
Since Invisalign aligners are removable, patients are responsible for changing their trays according to their treatment plans. For busy patients, this is especially handy, as they do not need to come into the office for frequent adjustments. Rather, patients visit our Fresno practice every 5-6 weeks to ensure that the treatment plan is working correctly.
Additionally, because the trays are removable, keeping them clean and maintaining great dental hygiene is simple. Just remove the aligning trays before eating, then brush and floss before replacing the trays.
As Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible, this treatment is popular among adult patients looking to discreetly correct minor orthodontic flaws. Invisalign® does not interfere with your social or professional life, allowing you to go about your day without feeling self-conscious about wearing braces.
How does treatment work?
The process of receiving orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® is much simpler than traditional braces. During your first visit with Dr. Nwajei, impressions and 3D images are taken of your entire jaw. These are used to create an idea of what the final results will look like, as well as an individualized treatment plan to reach these results. Custom aligners are then made to fit your smile at every phase of treatment.
Over the course of 20-29 sets per arch, the trays gradually change teeth alignment until they are moved to their final position. As your impressions are already saved into our system, A Beautiful Smile can have any trays that are broken or damaged throughout the case of treatment replaced in 2-3 business days.
