When patients hear of orthodontics, they often think of metal brackets and wires. However, with continued advances in dentistry, patients can now avoid this and achieve the same results with clear aligner trays instead. This method of realigning the smile, called Invisalign, is an extremely popular choice for many patients in the Santa Clarita, CA area. Visiting a dentist is the first step in learning more!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign offers a fast and functional way to realign the teeth within the dental arch. This method is highly effective in achieving noticeable results that last. At Healthy Smiles Dental, we find patients with mild to moderate misalignment of their dental arch and/or bite are considered appropriate candidates for treatment. The treatment works by providing a series of clear plastic aligner trays. Each tray is worn for two weeks before patients move on to the next tray in the series. By the time patients reach the very last tray, they have a beautiful smile they can be proud to show off to others!
Invisalign is attainable for many of our patients. Our practice in Santa Clarita provides a variety of financing options to ensure patients on even the tightest of budgets can afford these services. Patients are welcome to schedule a consultation visit with our team of professionals to decide if this treatment is right for them and can provide results they desire.

Patients love being able to straighten their teeth without the embarrassment of metal covering their smile.
Orthodontic Braces vs Invisalign
There are numerous ways of fixing malaligned or crooked teeth, such as braces, Invisalign and putting crowns on your teeth or veneers. Usually, I recommend the patient go for an orthodontic consultation, or braces or Invisalign, which do not require grinding your teeth down. This is the best way of getting your teeth straightened out for aesthetic reasons and for functional reasons as well.
Orthodontics are braces that are placed on your teeth. The brackets placed by an orthodontist help move your teeth. The advantage of Orthodontics is the time of treatment, which is usually faster than Invisalign.
Invisalign is basically clear trays that are placed on the teeth and every couple of weeks, these trays are changed so that they can help move your teeth. In certain cases, you will place brackets on the teeth to help the movement of the teeth. Invisalign requires that you wear these trays 22 hours a day for optimum treatment and so that your treatment time is shorter.
