Misaligned or crooked teeth look unsightly and can make cleaning your teeth difficult, which can result in gum disease, bone damage, and tooth loss. Invisalign® invisible braces is a method for straightening teeth by gradually moving them through a series of custom-made, removable, nearly invisible clear plastic containers called aligners. Dr. Jacqueline Subka, a cosmetic dentist in Thousand Oaks, CA, is a top specialist in invisible braces.

A Popular Alternative to Metal Braces

Wearing metal braces is a traditional approach to align the teeth properly. However, conventional braces are less than attractive, uncomfortable, and painful. Adults can be especially embarrassed to wear them. Invisalign® invisible braces are becoming more popular as an orthodontics alternative among adults and teens. In addition to improving your overall oral health, the top five benefits include:

  1. Reduces damage to gums and teeth
  2. Straightens teeth faster than metal braces
  3. Comfortable and removable when necessary
  4. Computerized treatment planning removes surprises
  5. Invisible braces improve your appearance during treatment

While Invisalign® invisible braces may cost more than traditional metal braces, it provides beautiful smiles up to four times faster.

How Invisalign® Works

A series of invisible, custom-made aligners are created expressly for you based on an individual treatment plan created by your dentist or orthodontist. The aligners are smooth, BPA-free plastic that, unlike traditional metal braces, will not irritate your gums and cheeks. You wear them during the day, and remove them to eat or floss and brush your teeth. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gradually and gently start to shift into proper place.
