Invisalign in Walnut Creek at Schellinck Orthodontics

We are more than happy to discuss both metal braces and Invisalign with you at your consultation to determine if it sit, he right treatment for you.

That said, Invisalign is not right for everyone. It is not as effective at treated severely crooked teeth, missing teeth, and similar dental issues, which are better treated by metal braces. It also requires smart decision making. Aligners must be used correctly, worn 22+ hours a day, and cleaned often. Younger children are not always mature enough and many adults also do not want to worry about switching the aligners. 

That is why a consultation will be so important, to determine if this procedure is right for you.

Invisalign treats most of the same conditions that are treated by traditional braces. These include:

Why Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign provides many of the same functions as braces, but without the metal wires. It is a system of straightening teeth that uses clear, hard plastic aligners that slowly shit your teeth over the course of 6 to 24 months. Each aligner is used for two weeks, until it is then switched out for another aligner that continually moves your bite into their desired position.

They’re also great for adults that may not want others to see their orthodontic treatment. While Invisalign is a great choice for teens, many adults contact Dr. Schellinck sees many adult patients that are ready to start addressing their smile without feeling self-conscious about their treatment.

These Invisalign aligners are completely clear. When in place, they are nearly invisible, which means that no one has to know that you’re wearing these “braces” unless you tell them. For those that feel self-conscious about the idea of wearing visible metal braces, these aligners are often a popular alternative.

Invisalign is also removable. You can take the aligners on and off as needed. Though it is recommended that you spend at least 22+ hours a day with your aligners in place, you can remove these aligners to:

That means that Dr. Schellinck’s patients that use Invisalign have essentially no food restrictions and are able to continue with their oral hygiene in ways that are typically not possible with metal braces.
