Invisalign-Clear Orthodontic Aligners

Clear orthodontic aligners can straighten a dental patient’s teeth without the wires and brackets of traditional braces. The aligners consist of a sequence of clear, removable trays that fit over the teeth to straighten them. Each tray must be worn by the patient for a specified amount of time—usually around 20 hours a day for two weeks–before the patient can progress to the next tray. In most situations, the aligners can straighten teeth in anywhere from six to 18 months.

Clear orthodontic aligners are suitable for patients with mild or moderate crowding, or minor spacing issues. They may not be appropriate for patients with severe crowding or spacing. While the aligners can correct a mild malocclusion, patients with severe underbites, overbites or crossbites may require more advanced orthodontic treatment.

Unlike traditional braces, the trays can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Because the trays are clear, patients can undergo this type of orthodontic treatment without the usual discomfort associated with regular braces.

Dr. Rai and his staff provide gentle and professional care every time I visit. I have been a patient at Santa Barbara Dental Spa for 3 years. The office is very clean and inviting. I love my hygenist, she is always extremely gentle and provides a pleasant atmosphere that takes the edge off of being at the dentist. Dr. Rai has filled a few cavities for me and has done excellent work everytime, and is always very polite and friendly. I have always felt safe and cared for during eacy and every one of my procedures here. Easy location and parking too, which is a plus in Santa Barbara!
