Invisalign West Covina

Anyone looking to straighten their teeth or correct a misaligned bite discreetly has an excellent option in Invisalign clear braces. Invisalign, also known as "clear aligners" works for adults, teenagers, or children to help you gain that beautiful smile with comfort and ease.

What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign clear aligners are the just what they sound like: clear alignment trays that straighten your teeth. These nearly invisible aligner trays gently guide your teeth into the correct position. Because they are clear, few people will ever notice that you're wearing the trays, making them a great option for many adults, teens, and kids who prefer a more natural look than metal braces allow for.

Invisalign trays are not permanent, but rather are taken out during meals and when drinking hot beverages. They are comfortable, safe and easy to care for.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Invisalign Clear Braces?

Patients of all ages may wear Invisalign aligners, if they are eligible to wear braces. They're especially popular with adults, particularly working professionals, as the aligners are nearly invisible and give a more natural appearance than traditional metal braces.

They are also a popular choice for teenagers and older children, as well as children mature enough to properly care for their Invisalign trays consistently. For parents concerned with ensuring their kids are wearing the trays properly, there is a discreet blue marker that tracks whether the braces are being worn consistently or not.

How Long Do You Need To Wear Invisalign Clear Braces?

The exact length of time you'll wear your Invisalign trays will depend greatly on the extent of the corrections needed for your teeth. Daily, you must wear the aligner trays between 20 and 22 hours to ensure they have the time they require to work properly.

Overall, most patients wear Invisalign trays between 12 and 18 months.

How Do You Care For Your Invisalign Clear Braces?

One of the things many patients especially like about their Invisalign trays is that they are exceptionally easy to care for and keep clean. Because they are removable, they aren't as prone to staining and food does not get stuck in them as it does with traditional braces.

Before replacing your Invisalign trays back into your mouth after drinking hot beverages or eating, you should thoroughly brush and floss your teeth.

There are two ways to clean your Invisalign clear aligner trays. The first is using the Invisalign Cleaning System. The second is gently brushing your aligner trays with regular toothpaste using a soft bristled toothbrush.

You also need to keep your Invisalign trays away from hot water and extreme heat as these will warp your aligners.

How Much Do Invisalign Clear Braces Cost?

Invisalign clear aligners are similar in price to traditional braces in some cases. There are some factors, however, that will determine your exact costs. The type of misalignment, the age of the wearer, and the severity of the misalignment will all factor into the overall cost. Some insurance plans will cover the majority of the costs for Invisalign, as well.

At Orthodontics of West Covina, we will discuss all your payment plan options and find the right option for you as we settle on your treatment plan.

What Can You Expect When You Get Invisalign Clear Braces?

We will first begin by welcoming you to our office for your initial consultation. During this time, we will take x-rays and perform a general examination to ensure we understand exactly the treatment plan that will best suit your orthodontic needs. Our orthodontist, Dr. Hamid Barkhordar, will examine your smile and help craft the right treatment plan for your needs.

Once your plan has been set, we will make a detailed impression of your mouth using our state-of-the-art technology, guaranteeing that your new Invisalign clear braces fit perfectly. We carefully craft the trays from the highest quality materials to ensure safety, comfort, and durability.

You will receive your Invisalign braces and wear them as directed for the next six to ten weeks, then come in for a checkup. During this followup, you will receive the next tray for the next stage of your treatment. This process continues throughout your treatment.

Once your treatment is complete, we will create a custom-fit retainer for you to help keep that stunning smile straight and beautiful.
