How can Invisalign benefit me? 
Aside from giving you a straightened smile with an improved appearance, Invisalign can also improve your mouth’s bite. This makes chewing and even swallowing easier and helps prevent or treat conditions like temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Additionally, straightening your smile with Invisalign helps you look and feel better about your appearance, boosting your confidence and giving you the self-esteem you need to make strong impressions on those around you.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces 
Traditional braces vary greatly from Invisalign. Traditional braces are made from metal brackets and wires permanently attached to your teeth. Invisalign is made up of a series of aligner trays. The trays are clear and made from flexible yet sturdy plastic. Traditional braces remain on the teeth permanently until the end of treatment while Invisalign’s plastic aligner trays simply come out to eat or brush your teeth. This means patients do not need to avoid foods or add extra steps to their oral care routines as they would with traditional braces.

Invisalign Treatment in Moreno Valley, CA
Invisalign uses state-of-the-art technology to give you the smile you have always wanted. Your doctor will take a 3D image of your mouth and teeth to use as a starting point for the design of your aligner trays. Patients will wear each tray in the series for about two weeks. The teeth slowly shift according to the trays and, eventually, move into their final positions.
