Invisalign Provider in Tracy, CA

Invisalign

If you are looking for a reputable and friendly Invisalign provider in Tracy, CA, look no further than Miller’s Family Dentistry. By using a modern and efficient approach to straightening your teeth, Invisalign helps you say goodbye to crooked teeth and hello to straighter teeth.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a teeth straightening system that doesn’t use metal brackets or wires, unlike traditional metal braces. They are made from durable plastic that is custom-made to perfectly and snugly fit your teeth. Invisalign can be used on both the upper teeth and lower teeth to create a straighter, more beautiful smile.

During your initial visit, our dental team will take digital x-rays, high-resolution dental images, and impressions of your teeth to determine the best treatment plan for you. From there, we create a series of custom trays. Patients are expected to wear their Invisalign trays for 20-22 hours a day, except when eating, drinking, or brushing. To achieve a straighter smile, you will switch out the trays every 2 weeks or so. This will allow your teeth to gradually move into the ideal positions as planned by your dentist.

Braces vs. Invisalign

Braces are a traditional orthodontic treatment that effectively straightens your teeth by using brackets and wires. While braces may be a good fit for some patients, Invisalign is a great alternative and removes the visible appearance of braces. Custom-made, clear aligners by Invisalign are a great solution to achieving that straight smile you’ve always desired.

Invisalign uses non-invasive, painless equipment that provides dramatic improvement to your smile without the hassle of braces.

How to Care for Your Teeth and Aligners During Invisalign Treatment

Your oral hygiene plays an essential role during your Invisalign treatment. By practicing good dental care and oral health habits, you can expect faster treatment times. Here are a few tips to maintain your oral health and aligners:

  • Brush twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • Floss once or twice daily to remove particles in between your teeth.
  • Clean your aligners with water and a soft-bristled brush to remove leftover food particles and bacteria.
  • Remove your aligners when eating or drinking to prevent build-up.
  • Store your aligners in the included protective case while eating or drinking.

Dental Retainers

Dental retainers are typically used after removing braces to ensure that your teeth do not move back to their previous positions. There are two types of dental retainers:

  • Fixed retainers
  • Removable retainers

After your final set of Invisalign trays, you will need to wear a similar set of removable retainers. You’ll need to wear them all the time at first, but then you may be able to move to only wearing them at night. This will ensure that your teeth stay in their desired position.

Cost of Invisalign

The cost of Invisalign can vary depending on your specific needs. Patients with major gaps between teeth, spacing issues, or moderate alignment issues may require more extensive treatment that can affect the treatment time and cost. However, patients with minor issues can expect shorter treatment times and costs. During your consultation, Dr. Miller will assess your teeth to develop a personalized treatment plan for you, as well as a detailed breakdown of the cost of your Invisalign treatment.
