Get the smile you’ve always wanted Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care

If you’re looking for orthodontic corrective dentistry in Carmel Mountain Ranch, but you dislike the appearance of traditional metal braces, Invisalign from Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care may be perfect for you!

Invisalign is a nearly-invisible braces alternative and a highly effective orthodontic treatment. With Invisalign, you can get straighter teeth, a brighter smile, and a more healthy bite in as little as 3 months depending on your goals!

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment method that uses clear plastic aligners, rather than the bracket, wire, and band system used by braces.

These aligners are custom shaped to shift your teeth gradually, using balanced, gentle pressure.

Crafted from a proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material, Invisalign offers a more comfortable and subtle method of orthodontic correction, compared to traditional metal braces.

How Does Invisalign Work?

The first step for Invisalign in Rancho Peñasquitos is to consult with Dr. Carpenter & Dr. Collado at Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care. X-rays, molds, and pictures of your mouth will be taken during this initial consultation, and they will determine whether or not Invisalign is appropriate for your needs.

If Invisalign is recommended for you, Dr. Carpenter & Collado will create a customized treatment plan just for you. Your Invisalign aligners will be created in a dental lab. When ready, they will be sent to Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care.

Then, all you have to do is start wearing your aligners! You’ll wear them for about 20-22 hours each day, removing them only for brushing/flossing, eating and drinking.

Your aligners will begin shifting your teeth gradually. Every one to two weeks, you’ll swap your old aligners for a new set, and you will see Dr. Carpenter or Dr. Collado for a 6-week checkup to ensure that your treatment is proceeding properly.

The Benefits Of Invisalign

Compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign has quite a few benefits.

  • Nearly invisible – Invisalign is nearly invisible to the naked eye, unlike metal braces. This makes Invisalign very popular among adult orthodontic patients, who wish to avoid the stigma of having braces during adulthood.
  • Fast treatment times – You can opt to do limited treatment to focus on the aesthetic of your smile, making treatment times typically shorter than that of metal braces.   
  • Better oral hygiene – Because you can remove your aligners for brushing/flossing, you can keep your teeth healthier during treatments. Braces can make it hard to brush and floss effectively, which can lead to issues like tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Flexible process – Invisalign requires no adjustments, only a quick checkup every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing properly.
  • More comfortable – Aligners are custom fit and extremely comfortable! Invisalign exerts a balanced, gentle, and gradual pressure, reducing discomfort. In addition, there are no metal brackets or wires to poke the inside of your mouth.
