Dr. Matthew Moadel is a certified provider of Invisalign® in San Bernardino, California. Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that relies on clear aligners rather than metal brackets and wires. This treatment is an excellent choice for anyone who is looking for a more discreet alternative to braces. Invisalign is especially popular among adults and teenagers.
Invisalign relies on a series of custom-made plastic aligners to gently and effectively move your teeth into their proper positions. You will switch to a new set of aligners every one to two weeks, with each new aligner making small changes to the position of your teeth until they have all been moved into their correct positions in your mouth. You will meet with our orthodontist regularly throughout treatment to ensure that everything is progressing as it should be.
Invisalign can be used to treat the same orthodontic problems as braces, including:
- Malocclusion (bad bites)
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
If you receive Invisalign orthodontic treatment, please make sure to wear your aligners as directed. The aligners are removable, making it easy for you to brush and floss and allowing you to eat whatever you would like, but the more you wear them, the faster your treatment will progress. We recommend wearing your aligners 20 to 22 hours each day.
Please also remember to clean your aligners regularly. Because they are made of clear plastic, they may cause your teeth to appear dirty or stained if the aligner is not cleaned often.
