Has the thought of wearing metal braces for years made you reconsider orthodontic treatment? Think again! Invisalign® may be the perfect alternative to braces. This popular treatment option uses a series of clear aligners to straighten teeth discreetly.

We all know that traditional metal braces are effective, but they also come with challenges, such as avoiding certain foods that do not damage the appliance or making oral hygiene more difficult for some patients. Invisalign can provide effective treatment, often offering faster results and shorter treatment times than metal braces, but it depends on the severity of your case.

Benefits of Invisalign & How it Works

  • Achieve Faster Results: Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign can provide faster results and require less time for treatment.
  • Boost Self-Esteem Patients feel more comfortable in social situations when wearing clear aligners that are nearly invisible rather than traditional metal braces.
  • Normal Eating and Drinking: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign allows you to eat and drink as you usually would because the aligners are removable. You can take them out when eating, so there are no dietary restrictions.
  • Easier Oral Hygiene: Maintaining good oral hygiene is simpler with Invisalign. You can remove the aligners for brushing and flossing, ensuring you can keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout the treatment.
  • Regular Dental Cleanings: Invisalign treatment doesn't require appliance removal for regular dental cleanings. You can still visit Dr. Kau for routine checkups and cleanings without inconvenience.
  • Minimal Adjustments: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign typically requires fewer in-person visits for adjustments. You'll often only need to visit our Pleasanton dental office to pick up new sets of aligners, which are usually provided every few weeks.
  • Skip In-Office Aligner Checks: With the Invisalign Lens and My Invisalign App, you can take pictures of your teeth with your iPhone or Android phone. Dr. Kau will review your photos and guide you on your treatment progress from the comfort of your home! Call us to find out how.

How does Invisalign treatment work? After beginning the treatment, you will receive a set of personalized aligners made from SmartTrack® material from our office. You will then wear the aligners for 20-22 hours daily, and that's it! Most people won't even be able to tell you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
