Invisalign® in San Francisco, CA
Straight Teeth—No Brackets or Wires!
For many years, the only way to straighten teeth and correct orthodontic issues was to wear braces. Now, there’s a more convenient option for patients who want a straight smile and healthy bite, but who don’t want the look or feel of brackets and wires. Invisalign clear aligners effectively straighten teeth while giving you total control and flexibility during treatment.
At Symphony Dental Studio, we offer Invisalign to patients of all ages. If you or your child desire straighter teeth or a healthier bite, contact our dental office in San Francisco, CA, today to see if Invisalign is right for you.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign has helped millions of patients of all ages achieve a straighter, healthier smile. These clear aligners offer numerous benefits over traditional braces, such as:
- Comfort. Each aligner is created just for you, and there are no bulky brackets or poking wires.
- Invisibility. The aligners are virtually invisible. Most people can’t tell you’re wearing them!
- Flexibility. Because you remove the aligners to eat, there are no diet restrictions.
- Control. You determine how fast you achieve results by how often you wear your aligners.
- Results. Many patients start to notice changes in their smile in as little as two weeks.
- Cost. The cost of Invisalign is comparable to the cost of traditional metal braces.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign works by using a series of custom-made clear aligners to gradually move teeth into their correct positions. As an Invisalign provider, we will take scans of your teeth to create digital impressions. Then, Invisalign will use these images to fabricate your aligners.
You will wear your aligners every day, only taking them out to eat, drink, and brush your teeth. Maintaining good oral hygiene is easy because you don’t have to brush around brackets or wires. When you brush your teeth, brush your aligners as well and try to rinse them off with water after every meal.
About every two weeks, we will provide you with new aligners with slight adjustments. Over time, the aligners push your teeth into proper alignment with gentle force, similar to the way braces work.
When Will I See Results?
You may see noticeable changes in your smile as soon as two weeks after starting treatment. The average treatment time for Invisalign is between 6–18 months. This varies depending on the orthodontic issues you’re looking to correct and how often you wear your aligners.
It’s recommended to wear your aligners for 22 hours every day, including while you sleep. The more you wear your aligners, the faster you’ll see results.
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign can correct a variety of orthodontic issues for kids, teens, and adults. If you are looking to treat any of the following, you may qualify for Invisalign treatment:
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Open bite
Invisalign is a popular option for adults and teens of all ages who want straighter teeth but don’t want the look or feel of braces. The perfect time for a child to start orthodontic treatment may be between the ages of 6 and 10 as more permanent teeth develop. Invisalign is great for kids because the aligners are removable, making it easy for them to develop proper oral hygiene habits with regular brushing and flossing.
