Braceless braces from your Invisalign dentist in San Francisco
Many people want straighter teeth for more attractive smiles, but will not consider traditional braces because of the effects they would have on their image and lifestyle. In today’s appearance conscious society, image can have a dramatic effect on an individual’s success. For professionals in the San Francisco Bay area, traditional braces are simply not an option. Metal bracket and wire orthodontics are effective, but unesthetic, and frequently associated with adolescence. Many individuals are not willing to sacrifice their appearance to have orthodontic correction to their teeth.
Dr. Leo Arellano understands these feelings and offers Invisalign, a discreet method to straighten teeth, to people in San Francisco living in the Pacific Heights, Laurel Heights, and Richmond districts, and the surrounding areas. Invisalign is an esthetic, effective alternative that can correct most cases of crowding, rotation, wide spacing, overbite, underbite, and crossbite. There are alternative orthodontic systems available, but they don’t offer the superior level of convenience, comfort, and confidence that Invisalign does.
It corrects malocclusion with a series of clear, BPA free, nearly invisible thermoplastic aligners that are worn over the teeth. The aligners gently move the teeth into their ideal alignment through the appropriate placement of controlled force. The timing of the movement contributes to the comfort of the treatment, as only a few specific teeth are moved during each phase of the process. Patients can see digitized images of the way their smile will look at each stage of the process before treatment begins.
The various orthodontic treatments available create the same results, straight teeth and a more attractive smile. However, the advantages of treatment with Invisalign are obvious when compared to other options.
Malocclusion can negatively impact a patient’s oral health as well as appearance. If the bite is affected, jaw pain and excessive tooth wear can result in the need for additional treatment. Additionally, misaligned teeth can be difficult to clean thoroughly, increasing the risk of developing periodontal disease and tooth decay. People no longer have to choose between a flawed smile with an increased risk to their oral health or the unsightly appearance of metal braces. Invisalign offers an innovative patient-friendly solution.
