Have you ever wished for a straighter smile, but not all the metal wires and brackets that go along with traditional braces?
Invisalign discreet orthodontic trays are made of a soft, clear material. The virtually invisible aligners are custom made to fit your unique smile. Designed to deliver just the right amount of pressure at the right location and the right time, each set of trays shifts teeth gradually, moving them vertically or horizontally, or if needed, rotating tooth position.
Typically, your Invisalign dentist will prescribe a new set of clear aligners every couple of weeks. You will follow a customized orthodontic treatment plan designed by your dentist to move teeth into the desired position gradually. When Invisalign treatment in Pasadena is being mapped out, you will be able to preview your new smile and see how your teeth will move throughout the process with advanced digital tools.
To achieve optimal results, we recommend that most patients wear their aligners for at least 22 hours each day. Invisalign should only be removed to brush and floss your teeth and to eat. You will have regularly scheduled checkups with your Pasadena dentist about every six weeks to monitor your progress.
Since everyone has a much different smile, with varying concerns, Invisalign treatment time depends on your case. However, it usually takes about 12 months for the average adult patient to achieve optimal results. Your Invisalign dentist in Pasadena will determine the exact duration of time needed for everyone. For teens, the treatment time may vary.
After completion of Invisalign treatment in Pasadena, it is recommended that a retainer is worn to keep your newly straightened smile in position. It would be a shame to go through the entire treatment process, only to have your smile revert to its former shape due to a lack of proper care.
