Invisalign® invisible braces make it easy to straighten your teeth on the sly, which is why this method has become so popular with adults and teens alike. Invisalign® aligners are not only inconspicuous, they are also removable, allowing you to eat an unrestricted diet and making it easy to keep your teeth clean. The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear, customized aligners to gradually move your teeth into place, effectively correcting overcrowding, gaps, and a variety of other cosmetic issues.

Invisalign® Can Discreetly Straighten Your Smile
We often see patients who want straighter teeth but are hesitant to wear traditional braces due to their appearance and upkeep. To address these concerns, we are proud to offer the Invisalign® system to our patients in Mission Viejo and surrounding communities, an exciting orthodontic option which can discreetly enhance your smile. Invisalign® features a series of removable, clear, custom-designed trays that can be removed during eating, brushing, and flossing your teeth. If you desire a straighter smile and would like to learn more about how Invisalign® can help you achieve this goal, please contact our office to make an appointment with Dr. Richard K. Hada.
How Invisalign® Works
Invisalign® aligners are customized to fit snugly and comfortably over each patients’ teeth, gently and gradually moving them into proper alignment. The trays are clear and nearly invisible so people will not be able to tell that you are wearing them. The treatment consists of a series of aligners. You will wear each one for about two weeks before moving on to the next aligner in the set. By wearing each tray for about 22 hours per day, your teeth will move gently towards the end result of a beautiful, aligned smile.
Common Treatment Applications
Invisalign® can treat many of the same conditions that traditional braces are used for, including:
- Underbite – The upper teeth bite down behind the lower teeth
- Overbite – The upper teeth bite down too far in front of the lower teeth
- Gapped Teeth – Wide spacing between the teeth
- Crowded Teeth – Occurs when there is not enough space in the jawbone to accommodate all of your teeth, leading to a “packed” appearance
- Open Bite – The upper and lower teeth do not make contact when biting down
- Crossbite – The upper and lower teeth do not line up properly, which can lead to excessive wear and tear on the teeth and increase your risk of developing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
It is important to note that severe cases may require more extensive treatment, such as traditional orthodontics.
Benefits of Choosing Invisalign®
The most apparent advantage of Invisalign® over traditional braces is that the aligners are clear, comfortable, and removable. This allows patients to continue eating the foods that they enjoy without restrictions. Unlike metal wires and brackets, Invisalign® trays are made of a smooth plastic that will not irritate the soft tissues of your gums and lips.
Invisalign® treatment has proven to be just as effective as traditional braces for the right candidates. By closely following your dentist’s instructions, this treatment option will deliver a straighter smile that is easier to keep clean and maintained. Invisalign® can also improve your oral health for years to come since some aesthetic concerns, like crowded teeth, can increase your chances of developing gum disease.
