Invisalign & Six Month Smiles in Corona, CA
Now there are finally solutions for adults who want to straighten their crooked teeth but are put off by the idea of brackets and wires on their teeth for months or even years. Invisalign clear braces and Six Month Smiles braces are two convenient orthodontic treatment options that fit the real-world needs of busy adults and older teens.
How Invisalign/Ortho FX Works
Instead of metal braces, Invisalign uses a series of removable crystal-clear plastic aligners. Every moment you wear them, the aligners gradually move your teeth into a straighter, more symmetrical position.
Using Invisalign clear braces, our orthodontic specialist corrects common bite and tooth alignment problems, including:
- Crooked or crowded teeth
- Wide gaps and spacing issues
If you are thinking about Invisalign and would like more information, please call Dental Care of Corona at (951) 898-8845 to schedule an evaluation with our orthodontist.
Why Our Patients Love Clear Aligner Therapy
Patients in Corona, Norco, Riverside, and Lake Elsinore love Invisalign/OrthoFX because it offers numerous benefits compared to traditional braces:
First, our orthodontist will evaluate to determine your needs and develop a customized treatment plan to move your teeth. You will receive several sets of clear aligners and instruct you to wear each for 2-3 weeks, then start wearing the next set we have given you.
Continue wearing and switching your aligners this way until you’ve worn them all and treatment is finished. During treatment, you will come to our Corona dental office every 4-6 weeks so we can check on your progress and give you your next sets of aligners.
No Metal Braces on Your Teeth
With metal braces, everyone knows that you are having your teeth straightened. With Invisalign, the aligners are so clear and conform so well to the shape of your teeth that most people won’t notice them.
Enjoy Your Favorite Foods
Unlike bracket and wire braces attached to your teeth, Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners are removable. Take them out for meals and enjoy all your favorite foods, and just be sure to brush before putting your aligners back in.
Removable aligners are a benefit in many ways, but they only work when you wear them. The longer you wear your aligners every day, the sooner you will see the beautiful results you desire.
Brush and Floss with Ease
Keeping your teeth clean with metal braces can be a real challenge. Because you can take out your Invisalign aligners, you can easily brush all surfaces and floss between teeth to remove bacteria-causing plaque and food debris. Cleaning your teeth thoroughly is your best defense against cavities and gum disease.
When Six Month Smiles Braces Are the Right Choice
If you don’t have any bite problems to correct and only want to straighten teeth that show when you smile, Six Month Smiles braces may be the right choice for you.
Six Month Smiles is a short-term orthodontic system that corrects common aesthetic alignment issues. You do have to wear brackets and wires, but they are tooth-colored so that they blend with your smile. And since the goal isn’t to move your tooth roots or correct your bite, treatment can be completed much more quickly than Invisalign or traditional braces.
Every patient's unique, but treatment times for Six Month Smiles generally run from 4-9 months, with six months being the average.
