Our Burbank Invisalign dentist is proud to offer Invisalign aligners to patients who qualify. Invisalign offers many advantages over traditional braces. Both orthodontic treatments are effective at straightening teeth, but Invisalign uses aligners that are virtually invisible, so they offer much more discretion. The aligners are also completely removable, so you can take them out during meals or while you brush and floss your teeth.
You will wear a new set of aligners every two weeks until your teeth are in the desired positions. Each set of aligners you receive will be slightly straighter than what your teeth currently are. Over the course of two weeks, your teeth will be marginally straightened so that they match the aligners. The set of aligners you get after that will be slightly straighter than the last. You will continue wearing these aligners until your last set, which will provide you with exceptionally straight teeth.
Our expert in Invisalign braces in Burbank requires you to wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours every day. It is important to only remove the aligners while you eat or take care of your teeth; otherwise, your teeth may not get the straightening they require.
