Creating Straighter Smiles in San Marcos
While many adults value the aesthetics of a straight smile, concerns about the noticeability of traditional orthodontic solutions often cause them to avoid treatment. As part of an array of services that correct most levels of malocclusion, Dr. Rasika Jain uses Invisalign® to help her patients overcome moderate alignment issues. Smiles of San Marcos offers patients in our city and in nearby Vista, Carlsbad, Poway, and Mira Mesa the inconspicuous option of Invisalign® clear aligners.
Why Would You Need Invisalign®?
Straight teeth contribute to long-lasting function and appeal. However, when they shift out of position, extensive orthodontic treatment is not always necessary to achieve an attractive smile. Dr. Jain may recommend Invisalign® in situations where the impact of dental misalignment is largely cosmetic. Substituting the network of metal brackets and wires associated with traditional braces for custom-fit clear aligner trays, Invisalign® is most efficient and effective when used to address minor crowding or slight relapse from previous orthodontic treatment. If you feel poorly aligned teeth are keeping you from the smile you deserve, schedule a consultation with Dr. Jain to see if Invisalign® is the right option for you.
What Does Invisalign® Have to Offer?
The most noticeable benefit offered by Invisalign® is what others don’t notice. Our San Marcos practice provides this nearly invisible system to correct minor to moderate cases of misalignment. While the trays themselves are unseen, Invisalign® makes it easy to track how your smile is improving throughout the process. Beyond being transparent, these removable aligner trays make treatment convenient. While Dr. Jain recommends wearing the trays for 21-22 hours a day to receive optimal results, there are few limitations imposed on your diet or daily routine. Being able to remove your clear aligners before a meal means you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods and drinks unimpeded. This also means keeping proper brushing and flossing habits while using Invisalign® is straightforward, requiring no special techniques or tools to preserve your hygiene.
Invisalign® Treatment at Our Practice
A member of the American Orthodontic Society, Dr. Jain has the experience and training necessary to evaluate your bite and recommend the treatment best suited for your ideal dental health and appearance. Before offering Invisalign®, our dentist will perform an oral examination, using an intraoral camera to obtain a full view of your smile and provide an accurate assessment. She will then share her findings with you and discuss your options for care going forward, which may include Invisalign®.Much of what makes Invisalign® effective is the adaptive nature of the system. If you are a candidate, we will take a set of 3D digital images to ensure your aligner trays are customized to accommodate your unique dental situation. Throughout the course of treatment, the sets of aligners you receive will be designed to fit comfortably while being firm enough to gradually guide teeth into position. Every few weeks, Dr. Jain will follow-up with you to review your progress and supply a new series of clear aligners adjusted to reflect improvements in alignment.
