Invisalign dentist near Pleasanton, CA assists patients in aligning their smiles
An imperfectly aligned smile is more than unattractive. Misalignment of the teeth can cause a variety of issues. It can impact the bite alignment and cause wear on the natural teeth. Patients with poor bite alignment may also deal with problems such as TMJ/TMD, which is a problematic jaw joint. To address misaligned teeth, many patients near Pleasanton, CA consider dental practices that offer Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
While traditional orthodontia requires metal brackets and wires glued to the surface of the teeth to reposition them, Invisalign works differently. Instead of metal components, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners. These trays are custom-made for patients based off 3D impressions taken at StarBrite Dental. The impressions are sent electronically to the Invisalign laboratory, where a series of trays is completed. Patients wear the trays in the order indicated for two weeks at a time. Then, they move to the next set of trays and continue through treatment. At the end of treatment, the teeth will be in the desired alignment with proper compliance by the patient.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Teenagers and adults who are serious about compliance with treatment and who have mild to moderate misalignment of the bite and dental arch may benefit from Invisalign. The best way to determine candidacy is during a consultation appointment with Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental near Pleasanton, CA.
