The Best Way To Straighten Teeth.

Teeth can be straightened orthodontically using braces or clear aligners.

Custom trays are made using highly precise 3D digital scans taken by professionals and are fitted in-person to provide you with the highest level of discretion and comfort. Your treatment may be completed in as little as 6 months, but you will start to see a difference in just a few weeks. Your trays are easily removable and easy to clean so you can enjoy all the foods you love and still keep that clean-mouth-feel.

    Having straight teeth looks great but it can also prevent costly dental and medical problems

    It might be a little hard to believe but having straight teeth is very important to leading a healthy life. Maybe you feel like it doesn’t matter that your teeth are crooked. They don’t bother you, so there’s no point in fixing them. But teeth need to be in the correct position to function correctly and last a lifetime.

      Nearly 9 out of 10 people have at least mild crowding or misalignment of their teeth which can contribute to:
    • Chipped front teeth or tooth loss.
    • Food getting stuck between teeth.
    • Difficulty flossing and cleaning between teeth.
    • Increased risk of cavities between teeth.
    • Gum disease – which can increase your risk for several systemic health problems such as Heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Arthritis and Increased risk of stroke.

    If you have any of the above conditions, schedule an appointment at our office for an evaluation of your oral health.

    When Is A Good Time To Start?

    Maybe you’ve been thinking about straightening your teeth for some time. Perhaps you just recently had the recommendation from your dentist that it’s necessary. Either way, waiting to get started only gives you more months or years of dissatisfaction and increased risk of breaking teeth or dealing with related health problems. More importantly, remember that teeth continue to shift.

    Your teeth will be more out of alignment in a few years than they are today.

    The more movement your teeth require to straighten, the longer you’ll be in treatment. It’s easier, faster and less expensive to straighten teeth before they become severely misaligned.

    Don’t worry, treatment is affordable. The entire cost is not due on the day you start treatment. Our office is happy to share with you the payment options most of our patients use.

    What Can You Expect Once You Start Your Treatment?

    At the core of our mission is assisting patients in attaining both optimal health and a stunning smile, beginning with a solid foundation. This entails aligning teeth for proper function and alignment, a process that offers benefits regardless of age.

    Your Treatment Plan

    The journey commences with digital scans of your teeth, facilitating the creation of your personalized treatment blueprint. Leveraging Invisalign’s advanced software, we can precisely forecast the evolution of your teeth throughout the treatment duration. You’ll have the opportunity to visualize the progression of your teeth’s alignment weeks, months, and upon completion of the treatment. Subsequently, utilizing Invisalign’s cutting-edge printing technology, your custom aligners are meticulously crafted based on the finalized digital plan.

    The First Aligners

    Upon receiving the aligners, the application of special fasteners may be required. These fasteners are temporarily affixed to your teeth, facilitating easy attachment of the aligners. Rest assured, they are largely inconspicuous and are removed at the conclusion of your treatment.

    Follow up Appointments

    We will provided you with each set of clear aligners to wear for about two weeks. Your teeth will shift into place a little at a time as the aligners are changed for the next in the series until your teeth have been moved to their final, correct position. Visits to the office will be scheduled roughly once every 1-2 months to ensure that the treatment is going as planned.

    Contact us today

    to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

    Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

    Cost of Invisalign in San Diego

    With a typical insurance plan, Invisalign treatment usually averages between $3000 and $5000+ out-of-pocket. After an oral exam, we would be happy to provide you with an accurate quote so you can find out how much your insurance plan will cover and what your actual out-of-pocket expenses would be. Without insurance, Invisalign treatment typically costs about $4000 to $6000+.

      How do we actually determine the cost of your Invisalign treatment and why does it seem so expensive? When considering the cost of orthodontics, there are a few things to consider:
    • The current condition of your overall oral health.
    • How much your teeth need to shift.
    • The length of your treatment.

    Because every smile is so different, the only way to find out for sure if Invisalign is the best solution for you and how much it will cost you out of pocket is to come in for a consultation. Tell us your personal goals for your smile, let us examine your teeth and we will tailor a personalized treatment plan that will accomplish your wants and needs. Even if you’re not sure if you qualify for Invisalign because of your age, or particularly ambitious goals, it never hurts to ask. There are solutions available for you.

    We have solutions for every unique case that presents in our office. Most of the time, we can provide you with a treatment plan that can be completed in our practice from express cases to advanced functional and cosmetic cases. If it’s outside of our scope, we’ll refer you to the best specialist to meet your needs.

    Don’t let something like crooked teeth hinder your confidence or affect your health.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Invisalign is both more comfortable and more discrete than braces. The clear custom-fit trays are hardly noticeable and most people won’t even realize you’re wearing them. Plus, they can be removed for important presentations or dates! The clear trays are also smooth against the inside of your mouth and don’t pinch or scratch like the brackets from braces. If your trays rub on your gums, they can be easily adjusted. Invisalign trays exert a gentler pressure compared to braces and only shift a few teeth at a time. That makes Invisalign orthodontics far more comfortable than conventional methods.

    Invisalign makes changes to your teeth very gradually. Minor changes can be made in a few short weeks with little discomfort, and more complex changes can occur over a longer span of time to ensure you stay as comfortable as possible. There may be some discomfort, but if your Invisalign hurts, let us know.

    On average, it takes anywhere from 6 to 12 months for your teeth to move into the correct position with Invisalign. Most people start noticing some movement, however, within the first 6 weeks after getting their first set of aligner trays. The more changes you would like to see, the longer it will take no matter what orthodontic option you choose.

    Twice a day, remove your tray and clean it and your teeth before putting it back in. If you take your aligner out at any time, always rinse it before you put it back in, and try not to let it sit in open air when you aren’t wearing it. You may soak your aligners in denture cleaner or Invisalign cleaning crystals and carefully rinse them before putting them back in your mouth. Do not eat or drink with your trays in, and do not use toothpaste to clean your trays. We will provide you with detailed home care instructions when you receive your first trays.

    Don’t eat with your aligners in your mouth. If you expose your aligners to the strong chewing forces that your teeth are trained to exert, you can damage or even crack your aligners, plus it’s just messy and not easy to eat with Invisalign in your mouth.

    Yes, even when you sleep. They should be worn all day and night, except when eating and drinking. Your clear aligners won’t work if they’re not constantly shifting your teeth over time, which means you’ve gotta wear them!
