Traditional, metal braces can really put a damper on your style and look. Luckily, you no longer have to wear this cumbersome invisalignorthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth. With Invisalign, you can improve your smile and boost your confidence without those around you knowing. Learn more about Invisalign, the clear alternative to braces, with Dr. Roland Markarian at Golden Dental in Lancaster, CA.

How does Invisalign work? 
Invisalign works the same way as other orthodontic treatments, but uses a different method to apply the treatment itself. Traditional metal and ceramic orthodontic treatments use brackets and wires permanently attached to the teeth throughout treatment. This places pressure onto the teeth to move them into their new positions. Invisalign takes advantage of more modern technology and, instead of metal or ceramic brackets and wires, uses comfortable plastic trays worn in the mouth to place the required pressure onto the teeth.

What can Invisalign treat? 
Invisalign straightens the teeth and corrects bite issues, including:

  • overbite
  • underbite
  • cross bite
  • open bite
  • overcrowding
  • under crowding

While Invisalign can treat most orthodontic cases, your dentist may suggest traditional methods in situations with very severe abnormalities or severely misaligned teeth. Your dentist can help you determine if Invisalign or traditional braces are right for you and your smile.

Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment in Lancaster, CA 
Your treatment begins with a consultation with your dentist. This consultation is your chance to raise any concerns or ask any questions you may have about your treatment and allows your dentist to evaluate your dental condition to ensure that Invisalign is your best option. Next, your dentist takes a 3D impression of your mouth and teeth. The dental laboratory which creates your Invisalign aligner trays will use this model to design and create the series of trays.

With the route on which your teeth will move mapped out, Invisalign’s laboratory creates a video showing you exactly what you can expect during treatment, including your final results. You and your dentist will approve the video then receive your set of aligner trays a few weeks later. You will wear each tray in the series for about two weeks before switching it for the next tray until the end of treatment.
