InvisalignDo you want a straight smile? You probably think there is only one way to get it, with brackets and wires. The truth is, you can achieve a straight smile more comfortably and easily than you’ve ever thought possible, without wearing brackets and wires. You now have another option; it’s called Invisalign! Dr. Alexander Pritsky, Dr. Ravneet Otal, and Dr. Emil Tanase at Brookside Dental Care in Stockton, CA, offer a full range of dental services including Invisalign to give you the smile you deserve.

Conventional brackets and wires can be unsightly and uncomfortable, giving you a smile filled with metal. Invisalign is different, using a system of clear plastic trays called aligners. Invisalign aligners offer you many benefits that brackets and wires don’t. With Invisalign, you will enjoy:

  • Discreet treatment, because Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic, which makes them virtually invisible when you wear them
  • Comfortable treatment, because there are no sharp metal parts to irritate your cheeks, tongue, or soft tissue
  • Quick treatment, because you can have a straight smile in as little as 9 to 15 months with Invisalign

When you choose Invisalign, you’ve chosen a strong, effective orthodontic solution for alignment problems like these:

  • Overlapped or gapped teeth
  • Crowded or poorly-aligned teeth
  • Underbite or overbite
  • Open bite or crossbite

When you receive your first set of aligners, you wear them for 2 weeks. Then you move on to a new set of aligners, which you wear for another 2 weeks. You move up to a new set of aligners every 2 weeks until your treatment is complete at 9 to 15 months. During your treatment period, you will visit your Stockton, CA, dentist every few weeks for monitoring and adjustments.

You deserve a straight, beautiful smile without suffering to achieve it. Now, thanks to Invisalign you can have the straight smile without the hassles of brackets and wires. To find out more about the benefits of revolutionary Invisalign, call (209) 952-8804 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Pritsky, Dr. Otal, or Dr. Tanase at Brookside Dental Care in Stockton, CA, today!

Invisalign may be exactly what you’ve been looking for to get your dream smile.invisalign

We are going to give it to you straight: studies have found that those with crooked teeth weren’t perceived to be as successful as their straighter-smile counterparts. That’s right; whether it’s in the dating world or professional world, people with straighter smiles were considered more successful, smarter and more popular. So, is it time to straighten your smile? Our Stockton, CA, dentists, Dr. Alexander Pritsky, Dr. Ravneet Nijjar and Dr. Emil Tanase, can help!

What is Invisalign?

By now, you’ve probably read articles or seen Invisalign advertised on TV. Perhaps this information was what piqued your interest about this unique orthodontic system.

Invisalign uses a series of nearly invisible medical-grade plastic aligners, which are customized to your specific treatment plan and designed to move your teeth into their proper position over time. The number of aligners you will need to wear will depend on several factors including the severity of the issue or issues you want to fix.

What will my daily life be like with Invisalign?

Invisalign is a great option for older teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth but worry that braces will negatively impact their lives. Our Stockton general dentists are here to tell you that Invisalign will not hinder your daily routine.

While there is always an adjustment period with any new dental treatment, these aligners are removable which means that you won’t have to change your diet or change how you brush and floss. Your day-to-day routine can remain the same.

Of course, it’s important that you wear your aligners as much as possible. Aim for wearing your aligners about 22 hours each day. While it’s okay to remove them before mealtimes or before oral care, ideally you should be wearing them the rest of the day. Each aligner is worn for about one to two weeks, after which it is replaced with the next set of tighter aligners in your treatment plan.

Are you ready to find out whether Invisalign is the treatment for you? If so, then it’s time you called Brookside Dental Care in Stockton, CA, to schedule your initial consultation. We would be happy to sit down with you and discuss your treatment options for a healthier smile.

With all of the options and decisions that go into straightening your smile, choosing the best orthodontic treatment option for you can be invisaligna daunting task. However, your Stockton, CA, dentists can help you find the answers to your questions and get you started on a journey to a beautiful smile. Learn about Invisalign, the clear alternative to braces, with Brookside Dental Care.

Is Invisalign right for me? 
Most patients over the age of 12 who wish to improve their bite and straighten their smile may benefit from Invisalign. As an Invisalign patient, you must have a strong commitment to wearing your trays for at least 22 hours a day. Failing to wear your trays for the proper amount of time results in longer treatment times or other complications. Additionally, Invisalign patients should have or be willing to adopt a strong at-home oral care routine involving both brushing and flossing to keep their teeth healthy and clean throughout treatment.

What does Invisalign treat? 
Invisalign treats the same problems as traditional braces, including:

  • overbite
  • underbite
  • cross bite
  • open bite
  • misaligned teeth
  • overcrowded teeth
  • under crowded teeth

If you have misaligned teeth or if your jaw does not line up properly, Invisalign can help you get a smile and bite that is both functional and beautiful. Consult your orthodontist at Brookside Dental Care in Stockton, CA, to determine if Invisalign is your best orthodontic treatment option.

Invisalign Orthodontic Care in Stockton, CA 
Invisalign’s process begins with your dentist taking a state-of-the-art, 3D model of your mouth. This model gives Invisalign’s laboratory a basis to begin the design of your trays. It also allows for a completely natural fit since the lab customizes each tray for you. Before receiving your ready-to-wear aligner trays, the laboratory sends your dentist a video showing the route on which your teeth will move throughout the treatment process. After approval, you will receive your aligner trays. You will wear each tray for about two weeks. After two weeks, you will wear the next tray in the series, switching them out until the end of treatment.

Not many people are lucky enough to have perfectly straight teeth. If you do, then you are a rarity. However, if you are like millions of others that have misaligned or crooked teeth, then you may be considering your treatment options. When people think of braces they often worry about large metal brackets taking over their mouth, but now there are alternatives for straightening your teeth more discreetly. One option is Invisalign, and you can get it just by visiting your Stockton dentist.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners that look a bit like teeth whitening trays. Each aligner is customized to fit your smile to help shift teeth into their proper alignment.

What is the process like?

First your Stockton dentist will take X-rays and impressions of your teeth to create 3D images. Using these images, we will create a unique treatment plan that includes which teeth should move and the exact movements. We will also give you the projected length of your treatment. These clear aligners are specifically designed based on the treatment plan we’ve created for you.

Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, after which you will wear a new set of tighter aligners that will help move your treatment along. Each aligner will slowly shift your teeth into place. During this time you will also have dental checkups to make sure everything is going smoothly. This will happen every six weeks or less.

What does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign can be used to treat overcrowding, gaps between teeth, crooked or protruding teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites or even an open bite.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

The biggest benefit of Invisalign is that they are virtually invisible. That means that no one will be able to tell you are wearing them. Also, because these braces are custom-made for your smile, you’ll enjoy a comfortable fit that won’t bother your cheeks or gums.

Since Invisalign can be removed you also aren’t restricted during mealtimes. Unlike with traditional braces, you can just remove your clear aligners before eating. Just make sure to brush before putting your Invisalign back in. Also, since it’s removable you don’t have to worry about it getting in the way of your brushing and flossing routine. It can easily fit into any patient’s lifestyle.

Will my insurance cover Invisalign treatment in Stockton?

Good news! Many dental plans will cover a portion of your orthodontic treatment. Talk to your dental insurance provider or your Stockton dentist about whether Invisalign is covered under your plan.

If you are tired of waiting around for that perfect smile, Invisalign can promise you the results you are looking for without the metal mouth. Call us today to schedule your orthodontic consultation and let’s get you on your way to straighter teeth.
