Dentist in San Francisco describes Invisalign treatment
Dr. Leo Arellano is a well-known San Francisco dentist who has helped countless patients improve their smiles with cosmetic dental treatments. Dr. Arellano and his team understand that when patients feel more confident about their smiles, it can improve their self-esteem and their personal and professional relationships. Patients who are unhappy with the alignment of their smile often want results, but they don’t want to undergo the traditional orthodontic treatment with braces that utilizes brackets and wires.
Dr. Arellano can ease these fears and improve his patient’s’ smiles using Invisalign. This treatment adjusts teeth using high quality, comfortable, and clear plastic alignment trays. When these alignment trays are in place, they are nearly invisible. They work by gently shifting teeth into their proper position. This allows patients to achieve a better smile discreetly and quickly.
In addition to the advantage of being nearly invisible, Invisalign offers additional advantages including:
- Removability – When in position, the Invisalign trays fit snugly and securely. However, they can be removed for eating and cleaning. This allows patients to continue to eat all of their favorite foods without worrying about damaging the appliance. Additionally, it helps patients keep their teeth and gums healthy because they can still brush and floss effectively during their months of treatment.
- Comfort – Unlike traditional orthodontic treatments that include brackets and wires that can scratch the inside of the cheeks and tongue, the Invisalign trays are comfortable and easy to wear. Additionally, where traditional braces require tightening of the wires to shift the teeth, Invisalign users simply move on to the next tray in the treatment series.
