Clear Aligners in Carlsbad, CA

If you have misaligned or crooked teeth, clear aligners might be right for you. There are different types of aligners available to help straighten your teeth. Clear aligners are sometimes preferred because they aren’t as noticeable as other aligners.

At Invictus Modern Dentistry & Facial Spa, we offer clear aligners near you. For more information or to schedule a consultation, call our doctors in Carlsbad, CA.

What are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are an alternative to braces. They are more comfortable and convenient than traditional braces. Since they are clear, they are less noticeable and may be preferred for this reason.

Clear aligners can be used in the following situations:

  • Crowding
  • Overbites and underbites
  • Small or large gaps between teeth

If you have another concern with your teeth and their alignment, ask our doctors about clear aligners. If clear aligners aren’t right for you, another treatment may be able to help.

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

The first step in getting clear aligners is a consultation. Your teeth will be examined and scanned. The aligners are then custom-made to your specifications.

Depending on the type of aligners you get, you may need to change them every couple of weeks. You will also need to visit us every few weeks for a checkup and to receive your new aligners. It’s recommended that you wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day. You can remove your aligners to eat and brush your teeth.

There are different types of aligners available. Different aligners have different requirements and results. You may see results within a few months or need to wear your aligners for a couple of years. Our doctors can tell you more about your options and help you find the right ones for your needs.

One important part of maintaining your results is wearing a retainer. A custom clear retainer should be worn overnight following treatment.
