Is the beauty of your smile marred by crowded or crooked teeth? For those who wish to straighten their teeth without the wires and brackets of braces, Dr. Scott R. Adishian may recommend Invisalign® in Pasadena, California. Invisalign is the leading brand of clear aligners, custom-made trays that are worn over the teeth to straighten them gently over time. About every two weeks, our dentist will provide you with the next set of aligners. This will move you to the next stage of your treatment.
Invisalign has many advantages over braces. While braces require brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear aligners that are nearly invisible. Most people will not realize that you are straightening your smile. The wires in braces can poke and irritate your gums and cheeks, but Invisalign is made from smooth, comfortable plastic. For braces wearers, brushing and flossing is difficult and can be time consuming. In contrast, Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss with ease. Food can become caught in braces and can even damage the appliance, so there are many food restrictions. With Invisalign, you can continue to eat all of your favorite foods.
