The basics of Invisalign
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign involves no wires, brackets or elastics; instead, clear plastic aligners are used. If you want to pursue Invisalign in La Mesa, Dr. Michels will begin by using imaging techniques to create a ‘photofit’ of your mouth, which will be used to generate a 3D model. This model is used to show patients the results that they can expect to see with Invisalign treatment, before treatment actually begins.
Dr. Michels successfully treats many cases annually qualifying him to be considered a “preferred” Invisalign dentist. This qualification comes from Invisalign and indicates that he has noted success.
The benefits of Invisalign braces
Invisalign has significant advantages over traditional metal braces. First, clear braces have a much more subtle appearance, and they are almost invisible to the casual observer. As a result, patients are not hesitant to flash their smiles. Second, Invisalign braces are removable, making them easier to eat and clean. Third, Invisalign treatment times are usually shorter than traditional braces. In addition, traditional braces have left many patients with cuts and abrasions due to the metal components while Invisalign technology does not involve any metal, and so the braces provide improved comfort. Finally, the software that is used in conjunction with Invisalign allows you to see how the braces will change and enhance the appearance of your smile, boosting motivation to pursue the procedure for the full duration.
