What are the benefits of invisible braces?

Since its release in 1999, Invisalign clear aligners have revolutionized modern orthodontics. Teenagers and adults of all ages can now enjoy discreet and comfortable orthodontic treatments that deliver drastic and predictable results. Ocean View Dental Care is proud to offer clear aligner treatments for patients in San Clemente, CA. Our community-focused practice always puts your comfort and satisfaction first.

Benefits of Invisalign

Braces deliver life-changing and undeniably important cosmetic results, but the treatment process hasn’t always been user-friendly. Traditional metal braces can irritate gums. The periodic wire tightenings are notoriously unpleasant, and few patients would say that they enjoy having metal brackets and wires obscure their smile.

Invisible braces address all of those common complaints. Patients who undergo discreet and comfortable Invisalign treatments can enjoy these proven benefits.

No dietary restrictions

Traditional metal braces require dietary restrictions and strict oral hygiene habits. Hard or crunchy foods can break wires or dislodge brackets. Chewy foods can be difficult to remove. Our San Clemente dental patients simply remove their invisible braces when eating. There are no dietary restrictions, although we recommend that patients take care to keep food particles from building up inside the clear aligners.

A faster and reliable treatment

Due to advanced SmartTrack material and other patented technologies, Invisalign offers proven results along a predictable timeline. When you begin your orthodontic treatment, one of our doctors will provide you with the exact timeline of your treatment. Knowing how long your treatment will last allows our San Clemente patients to plan accordingly. 

A discreet treatment

Many of our patients cite Invisalign’s discreet treatments as their favorite feature of this orthodontic treatment. When properly cleaned, few people (if any) will be able to tell that you are wearing aligner trays. Invisalign trays are barely noticeable when speaking, meaning the aligner trays truly are the most discreet orthodontic option on the market.

Greater comfort

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign uses gentle micromovements to nudge teeth into better alignment. Each successive tray is straighter than the preceding tray. The invisible braces do not require uncomfortable wire tightenings. Patients may experience brief pressure when placing new trays, but the majority of our patients report that their orthodontic treatments are surprisingly comfortable. 

Invisalign SmartTrack Material

Invisalign’s SmartTrack material was released in 2013. Align Technology spent eight years researching the technology and explored 260 different materials. SmartTrack material is designed specifically for orthodontic treatments and fits precisely to a patient’s tooth morphology and attachments.

Photo-ready results

Does teeth misalignment leave you embarrassed to smile? Having a beautiful and attractive smile can lead to professional success, personal fulfillment, and rewarding romantic relations. Invisalign clear aligners correct a wide range of alignment issues, including gaps between teeth. Once your treatment timeline is complete, you can enjoy your new, photo-ready smile for the rest of your life.
