If your teeth are crooked or crowded or if you have a bad bite, you may not like the idea of wearing metal braces to straighten your smile. Luckily, there is another option available. Ask Dr. Brian T. Edwards, DDS about Invisalign® in Newhall, California. Invisalign uses clear, discreet aligners to straighten your teeth.

How Does Invisalign Work?
Our dentist will have a consultation with you to determine your needs and goals. If Invisalign is right for you, digital images will be taken of your teeth so that your treatment plan can be formed. Individualized Invisalign aligners will be made to straighten your teeth. Wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours every day, taking them out to eat and to brush and floss. Every week or two, our dentist will provide you with your next set of aligners so that you can progress in your orthodontic treatment.

Is Oral Hygiene Difficult With Invisalign?
Not at all! Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss your teeth as normal. Cleaning your aligners is also simple. All you have to do is brush and rinse them in lukewarm water.

Are There Any Eating Restrictions With Invisalign?
Because aligners are removable, you can continue to eat the foods you love. Simply remove your aligners when you eat and put them back in place when you are done.

We encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Brian T. Edwards, DDS to find out if Invisalign is right for you. Contact our dental office at 661-254-4000 today!
