We are a Certified Invisalign Provider
As a Certified Invisalign Provider, we have taken courses to understand and use the system to benefit the patient’s final results. In addition to the obvious cosmetic benefits, Dr. Safaei, can evaluate your case and create a digital plan to move your teeth in the positions that will reduce trauma, gum recession, teeth chipping, and more. Consider Invisalign to achieve the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A FREE consultation with Dr. Safaei can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing, so you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
Why would I want Invisalign?
Not only are the aligners invisible, but they are also removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. Further, they are comfortable because there is no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment – and, no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months, and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30; however, both treatment time and the amount of aligners needed will vary from case to case.
Every case we do at our office goes through an extensive digital treatment plan where we evaluate the bite, esthetics, movements, eruptions, contacts, and more from multiple angles to make sure we can get the optimal results for your case. You can see a sample of these digital treatment plans for some of our patients below.
