Fast results for minor misalignment in San Francisco CA – Invisalign Express
Invisalign is a tooth straightening system that uses a series of custom made, clear, BPA-free, thermoplastic aligners that look like teeth whitening trays. The trays are exchanged for a new set every two weeks, as tooth movement progresses. They are virtually invisible when worn; making them a popular choice for adults in San Francisco CA. Invisalign has straightened over 1.7 million smiles for delighted patients.
The aligners are removable for effective oral hygiene, as well as for eating and when drinking hot or staining beverages such hot coffee or red wine. However, they must be worn at least 20 to 22 hours a day for the treatment to stay on schedule. The aligners are smooth and comfortable, unlike the irritating wires and brackets of traditional orthodontics. Fewer dental visits are required than with metal braces, and the time in the dentist’s chair is shorter because it is usually just a quick check with no adjustments to be made.
Invisalign moves the teeth to the appropriate positions with gentle controlled force. With each set of trays, only select teeth are moved, making the treatment very comfortable. The average treatment time for standard Invisalign is 12 months, depending on the severity of the misalignment. However, for those who need minor tooth adjustment, Invisalign has developed an accelerated option called Invisalign Express. This system is great for mild spacing or crowding issues, or those who are relapsing from previous orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign Express system is an economical five-stage treatment plan that is terrific for patients who want minor cosmetic correction in three months or less. Many have avoided treatment because they didn’t want the long treatment time and expense of full orthodontic correction for minor aesthetic flaws. Invisalign express is a very simple low cost option for minimal correction.
Invisalign offers a wide range of options to address orthodontic issues from the very moderate, to the very challenging. While the company was developing technology to correct increasingly complex alignment issues, they were developing options at the opposite end of the scale, creating a fast track to a straighter smile for those with minor misalignment.
Invisalign is a terrific system of orthodontic correction with options for all ages and stages of misalignment. For those who want the benefits of a straighter smile, it is only a phone call away 415-881-4343, or an appointment can be scheduled using the convenient form at the side of this page.
