Clear Aligner Therapy- Our teeth can mean the difference between bubbling with self-confidence or feeling embarrassed and insecure. In the past, beautifully straight teeth could only be achieved through years of uncomfortable, unattractive metal braces. Fortunately, that is a thing of the past for many orthodontic candidates.
We offer patients the opportunity to have the stunningly perfect smile they deserve without the bulk and discomfort of traditional braces. To be a certified Invisalign provider in Walnut Creek, a dentist must go through extensive training, which both Drs. Kwon and Jabbour have done.
You may ask, how can these plastic aligners provide me with a perfect smile? The answer is that Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually shift your teeth into place. The aligners are made specifically to fit the individual through a combination effort of Drs. Kwon and Jabbour and 3-D computer imaging technology. Every two weeks a new aligner is used to gently shift your teeth closer and closer to their final position, prescribed by Drs. Kwon and Jabbour.
Without the hindrance of bulky metal brackets and piercing metal wires, you are free to enjoy the activities you did before treatment, making Invisalign ideal for athletes. Invisalign enables better brushing and flossing habits, as you can reach every tooth easily without having to manipulate the floss around wires. Patients can also enjoy the ease of eating and drinking freely, without the worry of pulling brackets or snapping wires.
Although varying from case to case, the average treatment time is from nine to 18 months, with an average of 18-30 different aligners being worn. The most attractive aspect of Invisalign is that no one will know you are undergoing treatment, as the aligners are invisible and removable. Where traditional braces are cemented to the tooth and require regular tightening, Invisalign aligners are more comfortable and effortless.
Drs. Kwon and Jabbour schedule visits about once every six weeks to ensure treatment is progressing properly. At each appointment, they will give you a series of aligners to wear until your next office visit.
