Do you want to change your smile, but do not want to cover them up with bulky braces? Rico Dental offers Invisalign® to patients who are searching for discreet dental alignment. To know whether you are a good candidate for treating your smile with Invisalign in Elk Grove, California, visit our office or call us at Rico Dental Center for Advanced Dentistry Phone Number (916) 684-8200 to schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Jorge Rico.
Invisalign® is a great choice for patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, Invisalign can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our dentist may recommend Invisalign to correct:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed to eat, brush, and floss. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign.
