If you have always wanted to wear braces, but your parents couldn’t afford them when you were a teen, talk to Dr. Paul Shinto and his team about the clear alternative to old-school braces, Invisalign.
With Invisalign, you can eat, drink, and not have to worry about mouth injuries that can occur with metal wires and brackets. Invisalign is the 21st century approach to teeth straightening using a series of comfortable clear plastic aligners that will give you the smile that you have always dreamed about having in as little as 12 months. Depending on the patient, you could have a new smile in just 6 months.
When you schedule an appointment with Dr. Paul Shinto and his team for Invisalign, a thorough dental exam will be conducted to see if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. If your teeth and gums are healthy, your dentist in Pasadena will take pictures and x-rays before making a mold of your teeth to be sent off to Invisalign for your new aligners.
When your new aligners arrive, you will be instructed to wear each set for two weeks before replacing with a new set of clear plastic Invisalign aligners. Depending on your prescription, you may require between 11 and 30 sets of aligners.
One of the best things about Invisalign is that you do not have to visit your dentist as often as you would with standard wires and brackets. With Invisalign, you will see your dentist in Pasadena every six weeks just to make sure that everything is on track.
Your Invisalign aligners are worn 20-22 hours each day and removed when you eat, drink, brush, and floss. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign aligners are comfortable and unnoticeable. In fact, the only people who will know you are wearing your new clear plastic aligners are you and your dentist.
