Hello Ortho in Napa and Petaluma is the leader in Invisalign services to help you attain a beautiful smile without using unsightly traditional braces.
If you’ve decided to invest in your smile with braces, you no longer need to hide that smile during treatment. Instead of traditional wires and brackets, many of our patients are now opting for a nearly invisible alternative, Invisalign. At Hello Ortho located in Napa and Petaluma Dr. Jordan has invested many years of learning and training in Invisalign so that he can offer it as an alternative to most cases that require braces.
Invisalign technology straightens your teeth with clear plastic trays, called aligners, that gradually move the teeth into proper alignment. The aligners are barely noticeable when you wear them.
The aligners are custom molded for both your top and bottom teeth. You wear each one for about one week before progressing to the next one. There are no brackets or wires, though sometimes a small tooth-colored “attachment” will be needed. Invisalign has proven to be just as effective as traditional braces for most people. There are other advantages, too, as you can see below.
With Invisalign, we use computer technology to design your treatment plan. First, we take impressions of your mouth with a 3D intra-oral scanner – no more sloppy goop! You will also have x-rays and photos taken. Based on this data, Align Technology creates your set of aligners and sends them all to us at one time.
You will wear each aligner, or tray, for about one week, but the good news is you don’t have to visit us that often. With Invisalign, we give you four or five successive trays at one time, so you only need to come into our office every five to six weeks. The total length of treatment depends on the severity of your malocclusion, but on average it is shorter than with traditional braces.
We already mentioned two: invisible appearance and about half the normal number of office visits, but there are more:
