Pleasanton area patients who are good candidates for Invisalign orthodontics
The idea of having metal brackets and wires covering the smile to straighten the teeth is something many patients want to avoid. However, they want a straight smile. When patients are ready to tackle crooked and misaligned teeth but are uneasy about having traditional braces blocking their smile, they may want to consider Invisalign orthodontics!
What is Invisalign?
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala describes Invisalign as clear aligner tray therapy. Instead of using brackets and wires to reposition the teeth within the dental arch, this method utilizes clear plastic trays. These are made in an entire series and patients wear the trays over their arch for two weeks before moving to the next one. The purpose of this is to gradually move the teeth into their desired positions without the pain, discomfort, and the appearance of traditional braces.
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?
The best candidates for Invisalign are patients with mild to moderate malocclusion. This treatment does not work well for patients who have severe misalignment or who are struggling with overcrowding. To find out if they are candidates for treatment, patients are urged to schedule a consultation and examination with our team. At this point, we can provide an evaluation to see if Invisalign is appropriate for your needs.
