Invisalign is the best way to straighten your teeth without having to live with the look of traditional metal braces. That’s because Invisalign is a series of clear, removable, plastic aligners that are custom-made for your teeth. And it’s easy to get started.

How does Invisalign work?

This is a new and revolutionary method of straightening teeth that is very subtle and difficult to detect. Wearing the aligners gradually and softly shifts teeth into the correct position over time. Patients must change their aligners every two weeks as their teeth gradually shift into perfect alignment. Surprisingly, while utilizing Invisalign, a patient’s smile will improve over time without the need for unsightly metal braces.

There are numerous compelling reasons why a patient might prefer Invisalign to traditional metal braces. Metal braces, which are largely made up of brackets and wires, can irritate and poke the interior of the mouth. Metal braces necessitate additional care and maintenance, particularly when it comes to cleaning and flossing. Because certain foods can loosen or remove metal brace brackets, there are several dietary limitations. Because clear aligners used with Invisalign are virtually invisible, there is no need to be concerned about self-consciousness or self-esteem issues. They are smooth and easy to wear, with no sharp edges that poke or pinch the inside of the mouth.

Best of all, clear aligners are straightforward and easy to remove, making brushing and flossing a breeze.

Invisalign, unlike metal braces, has no food restrictions, and aligners are typically removed while a client is eating. It should be noted that with Invisalign, the patient is expected to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours every day. However, it is acceptable to remove the aligners for drinking, eating, and doing dental hygiene. There is almost no discomfort with Invisalign as teeth are gently and gradually shifted into perfect alignment.

When using Invisalign technology, patients visit our office every 6 to 12 weeks. The straightening process with standard Invisalign typically takes 12 to 18 months. This is a shorter time than would be required if standard metal braces were used.

Digital Impressions make the process so much more pleasant!

Digital impressions provide several advantages over the more traditional way of taking “molds” of a patient’s mouth. Here are some of the benefits that make receiving Invisalign treatment from Kavian Modern Dentistry easier and more comfortable.

Greater Comfort – Digital Impressions  eliminates the need to use messy, goopy impression materials to take physical imprints. When traditional impressions or “molds” are taken, many orthodontic patients complain of gagging. For a better patient experience, digital impressions eliminate all discomfort!

Better accuracy – Because digital Invisalign impressions use modern technology, the resulting models of your teeth are more precise because they cannot be deformed during the impression process. Dr. Kaviani will be able to better design your Invisalign treatment for the greatest potential results! We can also use these precise digital scans to create physical models of your teeth for the fabrication of orthodontic appliances. There will be no more sloppy goopy impressions!

Better Treatment Planning – In addition to using our scanner for Invisalign treatment, Dr. Kaviani may realistically visualize the patient’s teeth and bite on the computer to diagnose and plan challenging cases, as well as simulate possible treatment results.

Visualization – With the iTero scanner, our team can watch the digital scan as it is being created, allowing for instant modifications if necessary. With the press of a mouse, we can show you virtually what your teeth and bite look like now before orthodontic treatment, as well as a “simulation” of your completed orthodontic treatment. With a digital impression that is done correctly the first time, your Invisalign treatment can begin as soon as possible, giving you a better smile sooner!
