Rancho Bernardo Invisalign by Dr. Mary Afzali
Your smile is the first thing people notice about you. If your teeth aren’t aligned properly, you may lack self-confidence when smiling. Crooked teeth can also be associated with bite problems, which makes them more than just a cosmetic issue. Bite problems can become painful and contribute to dental health conditions such as cavities and periodontal disease. Advances in dental technologies have made it easier than ever to achieve beautiful, straight teeth without a mouth full of metal. RB Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is a San Diego provider of Invisalign®, an alternative to traditional metal braces.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a viable alternative to traditional braces. Clear aligning trays are used to straighten the teeth; this method is not only more comfortable for the wearer than traditional braces but also far more discreet. Invisalign® trays are removable for more convenient oral health care and while eating. For best results, the aligners need to be in place for 22 hours each day. Every two weeks on average, you change to a new aligning tray. The result? Straight teeth in less time than you ever imagined possible!
Advantages of Invisalign®
Invisalign® is one of the most popular ways to straighten the teeth, and for good reason. Some of the advantages of Invisalign® include:
- No unsightly metal on your teeth
- Aligning trays are painless
- Discreet appearance — no one has to know
- Oral hygiene can be maintained as normal
- Follow-up appointments are only every 2-3 months
If you’ve always wanted straighter teeth but hated the idea of braces, Invisalign® might be the perfect choice for you.
The Invisalign® Process
Dr. Mary F. Afzali and her staff have ample experience helping patients achieve the brilliant smiles they’ve always wanted; Dr. Afzali is highly involved in the process of straightening teeth with Invisalign®.
