Certified Invisalign Providers in Ladera Ranch, CA

Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation at Ladera Dentistry can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.

 

What is it?

Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. 

 

Why would I want it?

Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time at our Ladera Ranch dental office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment 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 our Ladera Ranch dental office about once every three to four weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

 

Do I need to wear a retainer?

The most important aspect of all orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign, is wearing a retainer. Eighty percent of orthodontic treatment will relapse if a retainer is not worn. If you want to keep your straight teeth, you need to wear your retainer!

 

What makes Invisalign at Ladera Dentistry unique?

Ladera Dentistry is proud to offer FREE Invisalign consultations to all our patients. Since we are equipped with the latest Itero Element 3D scanner, we are capable of providing you with a free digital smile assessment showing you how you teeth look before AND after getting Invisalign. What's also unique here at Ladera Dentistry is with every Invisalign treatment we include a Vpro vibrating device that will help your trays fit a lot better and can reduce your entire length of treatment by 50%! We are not only a commitment to getting a straight smile; you’ll leave our office with a healthy smile as well. Dr. Mai and Dr. Roxanna will monitor the health of your teeth and gums at each visit to make sure you don’t get any cavities or show signs of gum disease.

During your routine hygiene or Invisalign visit, our doctors can use our Itero Element scanner to take another 3D scan and show you your progress on Invisalign.
