Hong Orthodontics is a Certified Preferred Invisalign® Provider
For many of our patients, traditional braces are a great choice. But for others, they need something a little different. They need treatment that is discreet, comfortable, and incredibly convenient, all while being as effective as any other option. For those patients, we offer Invisalign®.
What is Invisalign®?
Chances are you have seen a commercial or two for this form of treatment in the last few years. If you have, you probably understand the basics. Rather than using brackets and wires to straighten teeth, Invisalign® uses plastic aligners. These aligners are clear, comfortable, and removeable. And they are made just for you, so you get 100% customized treatment.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
The process starts with impressions of your teeth. If you hate impressions, don’t worry—these are digital. The 3D scanning creates a map of your mouth that is used to create a treatment plan; this treatment plan is then used to create the aligners. You are given the aligners in a series, and you switch them out every two weeks, slowly moving your teeth into place.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign®?
You already know it is invisible, allowing you to enjoy discreet treatment. You also know it is comfortable, so you never feel irritated by your appliance. What you don’t know is how convenient it is.
Invisalign® is removeable, and this means you don’t need to change your diet or learn how to brush and floss around an appliance. It also allows you to make the adjustments, so you see us less. Finally, it is fast, with most of our Orange, Tustin, and Irvine Invisalign® patients being in treatment for less than 15 months.
Are You Ready for Invisalign®?
If everything above sounds great to you, it is time to find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign® treatment. While it isn’t right for every case, we do find it works for many of our patients. However, we won’t know until you come in to see us.
