Invisalign: A Subtle and Effective Orthodontic Treatment

If you are considering orthodontic care but wish to avoid visible metal braces, Invisalign® can provide a discreet and effective alternative. This system uses removable, inconspicuous plastic aligners to reposition your teeth over time. At our Los Algodones, Baja California, Mexico, office, Dr. Jose Valenzuela, Jr. can carefully design your aligners to ensure a comfortable fit and stunning results. He can help you achieve a smile you can feel confident in, as well as improved oral health.

Is Invisalign Right for You?

During your consultation, Dr. Valenzuela can review your treatment goals and your oral health to determine if Invisalign is right for you. He may request digital x-rays for a more comprehensive view of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Invisalign can treat a range of orthodontic issues, including:

  • Overcrowding
  • Rotated teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

To qualify for Invisalign or any other cosmetic service, you should be in good oral health. If Dr. Valenzuela detects signs of gum disease or tooth decay, he can perform appropriate treatment before proceeding with Invisalign.

Invisalign trays are composed of smooth plastic and are inherently more comfortable than wires and brackets.

The Treatment Process

If you decide to proceed with treatment, Dr. Valenzuela can take digital impressions of your teeth using an advanced 3-D scanner. Using these images, he can design an entire series of aligners to achieve your specific goals. We can then send your impressions to a trusted Invisalign laboratory, where your aligner trays will be fabricated. 

Because they are clear, Invisalign trays are almost impossible to detect, even from a close distance. 

To ensure your treatment progresses efficiently, we can provide you with a series of aligner trays, which will exert a gentle pressure on your teeth. Typically, you will wear each aligner for two weeks before graduating to the next set in your series. The full course of treatment will vary depending upon the extent of your dental misalignment. On average, however, patients can typically expect to see final results in about 12 months. This treatment timeline is often significantly shorter than that of traditional braces.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Due to its notable advantages, Invisalign has become a popular orthodontic treatment amongst teens and adults. Its benefits include:

  • Subtlety: Because they are clear, Invisalign trays are almost impossible to detect, even from a close distance. Therefore, you do not have to worry about feeling self-conscious during treatment.
  • Comfort: Invisalign trays are also more comfortable than standard braces. First, they exert less pressure on teeth and do not need to be readjusted. Secondly, they are smooth, so they will not irritate the inside of your cheeks.
  • Convenience: You can remove your aligner trays to eat and brush your teeth. As such, you will not have any dietary restrictions during treatment. You can also maintain your daily hygiene regimen.
  • Effectiveness: Most importantly, Invisalign is a highly effective treatment that can have comparable results to braces. With properly aligned teeth, you are less likely to suffer from dental erosion, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) Disorder, and related concerns.

Invisalign can help you achieve your ideal smile, rejuvenating your appearance and improving your quality of life.
