Many people see orthodontic treatment as solely available to give you a more attractive smile. While improving your smile is certainly an important result of orthodontic treatment, there are other functional benefits to getting your teeth straightened. And when straightening your teeth, we want to help you by offering Invisalign in Turlock for a clear alternative to braces.
Before we learn more about Invisalign, let’s take a look at the benefits of a straighter smile:
- Easy to clean – crowded or crooked teeth can be extremely difficult to clean properly, as your toothbrush is unable to reach the entire surface of your teeth. But with straight teeth you can easily clean your teeth.
- A better bite – with orthodontic treatment, your bite is fixed, and balances the force of your bite throughout your teeth rather than just a few.
- Restored confidence – while the functional benefits of straight teeth are important, it would be remiss not to mention the benefits of your self-confidence. Having crooked teeth can be a source of shame and embarrassment, but with straight teeth you can smile with confidence again.
Invisalign in Turlock from Our Dentist, Dr. Cesar Acosta
Once Dr. Acosta determines that Invisalign is right for you, he will work with you to map out your entire treatment plan. This begins by taking an impression of your teeth. Then using the latest in 3-D imaging technology, impressions of your teeth are transformed into a series of clear and removable aligners, perfectly customized for your specific needs.
You will wear the comfortable trays on your teeth, and over the course of treatment the teeth are gradually shifted into their desired position. Approximately every two weeks, you will begin wearing a new set of aligners, advancing you to the next stage of your treatment. Occasional checkups with your dentist will help monitor your progress along the way. At every stage, you will be able to see the dramatic improvements in your teeth and how much closer you are to reaching your desired smile.
