Petaluma patients can avoid the orthodontist with Invisalign treatment with Dr. Jurina Smida
Dr. Jurina Smida describes Invisalign treatment
When patients hear about Invisalign, they often want to learn more about how it works. Invisalign is a way of treating mild to moderate malocclusion without using brackets and wires glued to the teeth. Instead, this method uses clear aligner trays. The trays are fabricated with medical-grade thermoplastic. They are designed using digitized impressions of the teeth. The computer develops a model of how the teeth should be properly aligned, and uses a series of trays that can be worn to accomplish the desired results.
How to use Invisalign
Invisalign trays are easily removed and replaced by the patient. This allows patients to remove the trays to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Patients who utilize Invisalign often have better oral health during their treatment because they do not have to work around brackets and wires when brushing and flossing. Invisalign trays need to be worn 20 to 22 hours each day to complete their treatment with expected results.
