Invisalign Adult

Teens with Invisalign

Invisalign is clear and practically invisible. Unobtrusive in business meetings or social gatherings - No metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth - Most people won't notice you're wearing aligners Over one million patients, many whom are adults, have benefited from Invisalign. Invisalign offers the clinical outcomes people want, all with a removable appliance that's virtually undetectable when worn. It's an ideal solution for the majority of adults.

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen is the only clear orthodontic aligner therapy designed to address the unique concerns of treating non-adult comprehensive patients. Because aligners are removable, patients can continue to eat their favorite foods and brush and floss normally to help keep teeth and gums healthy.

Invisalign Teen has all the features of Invisalign Full, plus:

  • Compliance indicators track the patient's approximate wear time and help provide reassurance for parents that the teen is being compliant.
  • Six free individual replacement aligners are included with Invisalign Teen to replace lost or broken aligners.
  • Many teens present for treatment with erupting permanent dentition, so Invisalign Teen has been engineered with a feature to help prevent supra eruption of the second molars.

Class I = Normal overbite, molars are in a good relationship. Deep bite = the front teeth overlap the lower teeth too far, 20-25% is ideal anything more is considered a deep bite. Diastema = gap between the front teeth or central incisors. Mild spacing of teeth. Mild crowding of teeth. Moderate crowding of teeth. Moderate spacing of teeth. Open bite = The front teeth do not overlap properly. Restorative with overbite. Cross bite (can be right side, left side or bi-lateral, which is both sides) = the upper back molars bite inside of the lower back molars. Severe crowding with extraction.

Testimonials
Invisalign vs traditional braces
Ione, Age 58, Administrative Assistant

The reason I went with Invisalign is because I'm not a kid anymore. I didn't want to look like a kid with braces on, and have the hassle of keeping them clean and all that. There is a lot of work to keeping your teeth in good health when you have (traditional) braces.

Smile with confidence with Invisalign
Daniel, Age 38, Chauffeur

I definitely smile a lot more. Even though I'm still in treatment, it has given me more confidence. It's given me something to look forward to. I feel good about myself. I feel good that I have taken the steps to get these braces.

Metal Free Braces
Breanna, Age 20, Waitress & Student

What I like best about Invisalign is the fact that I can take them out and floss and brush my teeth and put them back in. So it's not like I'm working around all this metal in my mouth, trying to get the toothbrush in there and floss in there.

Invisalign Dentist Castro Valley
Gina, Age 31, Analyst Relations

I would not have gone the regular braces route. The reason for that is that I am in a customer-facing position. I'm in the hi-tech industry, with a lot of people around me that are young and hip and moving and shaking. To be in management, in a hitech company with a mouthful of braces in front of customers and prospects and other executive strategic alliance partners, it just wasn't an option.

Invisalign comfortable product
William, Age 31, Investment Broker

At my age, to have the big metal train tracks in your mouth, I just figured, in person with people, I just wouldn't feel as comfortable as I would with something that was truly invisible. I really believe in the product. I'm kind of a walking, talking billboard for it.

positive dental experience
Vivian, Age 53, Nurse

I am absolutely, positively thrilled. The fact that I was done with it in less than a year, and really had no inconveniences whatsoever, makes me wonder why I even hesitated.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You'll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.

FAQs

What do aligners look like?

Aligners are clear and nearly invisible. If you've ever seen clear teeth-whitening trays that should give you a good idea of what the aligners look like. Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit and move your teeth.

Will the treatment be painful?

Each time you change to a new aligner, there may be some temporary discomfort while your teeth adjust to their new position. This is completely normal, and is a good sign that the treatment is working.

Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech?

Some people are affected more than others, but most adjust in a short period of time to the feeling of the aligners and do not have permanent changes in their speech.

How often will I have to wear my aligners?

Invisalign only works while you're wearing the aligners. It's recommended that you wear your aligners full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.

What happens after treatment to prevent my teeth from moving again?

This varies person to person and depends on the outcome of the treatment. Some patients might need a positioner, or conventional retainer. Other patients might need a clear plastic retainer.

How much does Invisalign cost?

There are many factors that determine the cost of your Invisalign treatment: how extensive the issues you want corrected, how long your treatment plan will last, and the specific treatment details prescribed by Dr. Griggs. We strive to make Invisalign affordable to everyone. You can get a beautiful, healthy and straight smile for as low as your monthly cell phone bill.
