Is Invisalign® Right for You?

Millions of Americans have worn metal braces to get straighter teeth. It was once considered a rite of passage for teens and young adults, but today’s dental technology means you don’t have to suffer a mouth full of metal to get a picture-perfect smile.

Invisalign® is a popular alternative to traditional metal braces. The clear aligner system is discreet, comfortable, and flexible — and it could be the right solution for your teeth.

Kohei Morita, DDS, is a trained Invisalign specialist. Along with our expert team at Morita Dental, he works with teens and adults to correct crooked, uneven teeth with Invisalign. It’s safe and effective, and it’s time to find out if Invisalign could be right for you.

The benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign aligners are clear trays that fit over your top and bottom teeth. Each set of aligners gradually moves your teeth into position, and you get a new set every few weeks. Invisalign is a simple, comfortable way to get straighter teeth.

Comfortable treatment

Your Invisalign aligners are custom-created to fit over your teeth. They’re more comfortable than metal braces, and they won’t irritate the soft tissues of your gums and cheeks like braces often do.

Since the aligners are clear plastic, they’re discreet in your mouth. Many people don’t even know you’re wearing them, and they don’t distract from your appearance.

You need to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours every day, but you can take them out to eat and clean your teeth. Removing the aligners means you can eat all your favorite foods. Plus, cleaning your teeth and the aligners is easy. There’s no need to navigate around brackets and wires, and food doesn’t get stuck.

Dramatic results

Invisalign is faster and more comfortable than traditional braces, but that doesn’t mean it’s less effective. Dr. Morita uses Invisalign to correct all the most common orthodontic problems, including:

Dr. Morita tracks your progress throughout Invisalign treatment, making adjustments as needed to give you your best possible smile.

Your Invisalign consultation

Invisalign is a flexible treatment option for many teens and adults. If you’re curious to find out if Invisalign could be right for you, schedule a consultation at Morita Dental.

Dr. Morita’s Invisalign consultations include a comprehensive evaluation. Our team reviews your health history, examines your mouth, and takes dental X-ray images to determine your orthodontic needs.

After an initial review, we take digital scans of your teeth to develop your Invisalign treatment plan. Dr. Morita maps out your treatment plan, and you have the chance to see what your smile will look like at the end.

Many people start noticing results within a few weeks of beginning Invisalign treatment. Although every patient is different, most treatment plans take just 12-18 months.

Bothered by crooked teeth? Embarrassed by your uneven smile? Traditional metal braces aren’t your only option. Schedule an Invisalign consultation at Morita Dental by calling our office at 408-775-7770 or contacting our team online.
