Are you unhappy with the look of crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth? Dr. Sinan Alhamdi offers a modern orthodontic treatment, called Invisalign. It utilizes clear plastic aligners that allow you to maintain your professional image at work while being able to improve your oral health. Instead of dealing with uncomfortable metal wires and brackets, let our team of dental professionals help you achieve a dreamy and aligned smile with a more practical solution. To get started, schedule a consultation today!
Many patients choose Invisalign in Carmel Valley over traditional metal braces because they’re a virtually unnoticeable orthodontic treatment that can fix a variety of issues. If you suffer from any of the following, you can benefit from the clear aligner process:
The first step of Invisalign is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Alhamdi, your cosmetic dentist in Carmel Valley. He will examine your teeth and gums and take impressions and images of your mouth. This will allow him to develop a strategic treatment timeline. Once all of the information he has collected is sent off to our Invisalign laboratory to craft your trays, you’ll be on your way towards straightening your smile.
As your first set of aligners arrives, we’ll call you in to show you how to wear and take care of them. You’ll need to wear each one for about two weeks for at least 22 hours every day. The only times you’ll be taking them out of your mouth is to eat and brush and floss. To get used to remembering to put them back in, it’s a good idea to set a reminder on your phone whenever you take them out of your mouth.
Every six weeks or so, we’ll ask you to schedule checkups that are essentially just to check the progress of your treatment, answer any questions you have, and give you your next sets of aligners. Sometimes, a tray may need to be worn a little longer than expected, so it may be slightly over six weeks if this is the case for you. The average Invisalign treatment takes between eight and 14 months to complete. Once you’re finished, you’ll be able to enjoy your new and improved smile!
