Clear Your Path to a Straighter, Healthier Smile
If you’re considering orthodontic treatment but don’t want to go through the trouble of wearing traditional metal braces to straighten your smile, then Invisalign may be the solution for you.
Made with a durable, flexible plastic, clear aligners from Invisalign and Evrigenis Orthodontics give teens, adults, and children in Sacramento a versatile, discreet solution for getting a straighter, healthier smile.
What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?
Invisalign is a series of clear aligners designed to treat malocclusion and other bite issues.
Each tray of aligners is custom-made to follow a unique treatment plan that Dr. Evrigenis designed based on your teeth’s present condition with the aim of straightening crooked and overcrowded teeth into the smile of your dreams.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Your smooth, nearly invisible aligners are designed to apply a certain amount of controlled force to gradually shift your teeth to their properly aligned position.
During each stage of treatment, your Invisalign aligner will only move your teeth little by little.
Every movement will be carefully planned out earlier by Dr. Evrigenis, and after every phase of treatment, he’ll replace your old aligners with new ones to continue carefully and comfortably nudging your teeth in the right direction.
What Dental Concerns Do Invisalign Aligners Treat?
Invisalign aligners can prove to be helpful in treating and fixing the following orthodontic conditions:
- Crossbite, overbite, underbite
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Unevenly gapped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
How Long Does Treatment Take With Invisalign?
Nowadays, Invisalign is one of the most commonly used orthodontic appliances many people turn to for fixing their misaligned teeth. But how long do Invisalign aligners take to work and yield results?
On average, it takes 6 – 18 months for the Invisalign users to see results. For severe malocclusion, it may take as long as two years. However, every smile is different, and the total treatment time depends upon several factors as follows:
- The complexity of your dental issues
- The positioning of your teeth
- Your dental goals
- Your compliance and diligence in adhering to Dr. Evrigenis’s instructions
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
If Dr. Evrigenis determines that your orthodontic needs can be met with Invisalign, these clear aligners can offer you many incredible benefits.
For example, Invisalign clear aligners:
- Are virtually invisible
- Are removable and metal-free
- Don’t interfere with your dental hygiene routine
- Don’t swell or irritate your gums
Differences Between Braces & Invisalign
Not everyone has a naturally aligned, straight smile. If you have crooked or misaligned teeth and wish to straighten them, orthodontic treatments are the best option.
The goal of every orthodontic procedure is to properly align your bite, jaw, and teeth, resulting in a straight and attractive smile.
For those who wish to align their teeth, several orthodontic treatments are available. The most common options are:
- Invisalign aligners
Braces are the most common and traditional orthodontic treatment that typically offer the fastest results.
Braces are metal brackets that are attached to your teeth. Wires connect the brackets, applying pressure to move your teeth into proper alignment. Braces are the most common treatment option for misaligned teeth and bite problems.
Braces are used to treat:
- Misaligned teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Impacted teeth
Invisalign® clear aligners are an orthodontic system used to straighten teeth.
The system involves the use of a series of clear, removable aligners that are worn in succession to correct mild to moderate orthodontic issues.
Unlike braces, Invisalign® aligners are completely removable. This makes them a great option for those who lead an active lifestyle or those with a busy work schedule.
In addition, Invisalign® aligners are easy to clean and maintain and can be taken out before eating.
Which Will Work Better for You?
Both Invisalign and braces have their own pros and cons. You’ll need to consider many important factors when deciding between Invisalign or braces. Whether you need one, the other, or a combination of the two depends on your individual case.
Both Invisalign and braces can straighten your smile, but Invisalign offers some distinct advantages compared to braces.
For example, Invisalign works faster than braces. Braces require frequent adjustments, which lengthens your time in treatment. Invisalign requires fewer adjustments because the aligners are switched out every few weeks.
Invisalign also requires fewer dentist visits, which saves you time.
However, Invisalign can’t correct severe teeth misalignment. More complex cases require the durability and adjustability of traditional braces.
Ideal for Teens
Invisalign at Evrigenis Orthodontics offers a customized set of aligners for your teenager. These aligners are made from a durable, flexible plastic, which will gradually help your teen’s teeth to shift to their original position over the course of their treatment.
Because Invisalign doesn’t use metal brackets, these aligners are comfortable to wear. Your teen won't have to worry about maintaining their braces as these aligners can always be removed. This helps them brush and floss their teeth with ease.
Invisalign aligners are clear and removable, so they won’t prevent your child from participating in their day-to-day activities or keep them from enjoying their favorite food. Your teen will only have to change out their aligners every two weeks during their treatment.
