Does your smile suffer from crooked or misaligned teeth? Looking for a comfortable, metal-free option for correcting your smile? Steve Horne, DDS in Encinitas near Carlsbad, CA can help! We are proud to offer Invisalign clear aligners for our patients looking to perfect their smile without unsightly metal brackets and wires.
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional metal braces. Similar to metal braces, they are an orthodontic treatment used to realign teeth for a more appealing smile. Unlike traditional braces, however, Invisalign offers a clear solution that most people won’t even notice you’re wearing. Another benefit of Invisalign is the ability to remove your aligners for eating, drinking and brushing.
For decades the only treatment option for crooked, misaligned teeth were unsightly metal braces. Along with the appearance, traditional braces are also often associated with pain, discomfort and frequent orthodontic visits. Luckily, Invisalign was created, and now our patients have a more appealing option for correcting alignment issues. Some additional benefits of Invisalign include:
Interested in straightening your smile with Invisalign? Dr. Horne would be happy to evaluate your teeth, gums and oral health to determine whether you are a candidate for Invisalign clear aligners. Once it has been determined that Invisalign is the right option for you, we will use digital imaging for the creation of your clear aligners. All of the aligners will be custom-made for your treatment plan; depending on your case, you may need anywhere from ten to thirty sets of aligners.
Once your aligners are created, treatment can begin. Dr. Horne will discuss the length of treatment, how to maintain your aligners, when to change aligners, and when to schedule regular appointments for us to monitor your progress.
