Invisalign® straightens teeth effectively, without the hassle of braces!

More than 12 million smiles worldwide have been “made over” with Invisalign®, the clear and removable alternative to conventional braces for correcting misalignment and bite problems. Patients of Complete Health Dentistry SoCal in Poway, California, can now benefit from this modern orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign® basics

The first step to getting straight teeth and a healthy, beautiful smile is to schedule an appointment with our dentist and Invisalign® provider, Dr. Erela Katz Rappaport. During this consultation, Dr. Rappaport will examine your mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for this type of treatment. As Invisalign® has evolved over the past 25 years, it is now an appropriate treatment for many more types of patients – from those with minor misalignment issues to those with a more extensive overbite, underbite, crossbite, or open bite.

Our patients love that they can visualize exactly how their teeth will be moved throughout treatment. Due to Invisalign’s advanced software and virtual simulation capabilities, we can show you how your teeth will be repositioned – even what they will look like at the end of treatment! If we move forward with the process, the information we collect during this consultation will be used to make your precision aligners.

These aligners are designed to fit your mouth’s one-of-a-kind specifications. They are made from smooth, transparent, and safe plastic. Just slip the aligners over your teeth. Wear and care for them as directed by your dentist. As the aligners are worn properly throughout treatment, they place gentle and consistent forces on the teeth to incrementally move them through the bone and facilitate proper repositioning. Compliance with instructions is vital to ensure that your treatment plan remains on track and on schedule. So, be sure to:

  • Only remove the aligners when eating meals and when brushing and flossing.
  • Wear the aligners in the correct order. Treatment involves a series of aligners. Each aligner in the sequence corresponds with a different phase of treatment and is typically worn for around one week to two weeks.
  • Visit Dr. Rappaport as advised. She can then check that your treatment is progressing well and provide you with the next set of aligner trays.
