When you think of orthodontics , you probably imagine a teenager wearing metal, wires, and colorful elastics. If so, you’re not alone - this image prevents many adults and even teens from getting the treatment they need to get a healthy, straight smile. With Invisalign treatment at Gold Coast Dental Riverside, however, you can invisibly align your smile exactly how you want without anyone else knowing! Invisalign is like having clear braces, except instead of using brackets and wiring to shift your teeth into alignment, they use a series of clear plastic trays custom-made to your mouth. Just like traditional braces, clear aligners can correct: crowded teeth, crooked teeth, overbite, underbite, gaps between teeth, crossbite, open bite.

Our orthodontists take pride in ensuring you’re always completely comfortable throughout your Invisalign treatment. Each clear aligner tray is switched for the next in the set every two weeks, making the change to your smile gradual, gentle, and painless. Even when moving to the next aligner, the fit will be so perfect that they’ll always slip right on with little to no discomfort at all. And unlike braces, Invisalign is removable. Clear aligners only need to be worn 22 hours each day, meaning you don’t have to wear them during meals, when brushing and flossing your teeth, or while out on special occasions. There are no special instructions or restrictions when it comes to caring for your smile. Depending on the severity of your misalignment problem, you can achieve your smile goals easily in just 12 to 18 months!

Don’t wait a second longer to straighten your teeth like you’ve always wanted! Call our Riverside office at (951) 494-2902 to schedule a smile consultation with our orthodontist staff today.

Invisalign vs. Braces

When you decide to see our Riverside orthodontists, we want to make sure you always get the treatment that’s right for your smile

Picking between Invisalign treatment or dental braces can be a tough choice to make. After all, your treatment can drastically change your whole teeth straightening experience. That’s why at Gold Coast Dental Riverside, our orthodontists want to make sure you always choose the one that’s best for your specific needs and goals. Not only does Invisalign remove the unnatural look of metal braces, but they’re much more convenient and lenient towards your current lifestyle. Unlike Invisalign, braces can’t be removed. This means that special care must be taken when cleaning your teeth and certain foods must be avoided to keep from damaging your brackets or wires. There is, however, an advantage to fixed orthodontia: it can’t be forgotten or

misplaced, which can be a recurring problem for younger children using clear aligners. Invisalign treatment is often faster than braces, taking anywhere between 6 and 18 months compared to braces 18 months to 3 years. However, what braces don’t have in speed, they make up for in their effectiveness. Braces are amazing with complex teeth issues, often fixing alignment problems that even Invisalign can’t like back teeth misalignment, teeth that need to be moved vertically, and teeth that should be rotated. They’re also faster at closing gaps between teeth. Need help deciding which option is best for your smile? Why not see our orthodontist for a consultation?

  • Do clear aligners really work?

    Although Invisalign doesn’t tighten your teeth with brackets and wires, we promise you’ll be amazed by your Invisalign before and after! Clear aligners don’t just work - they’re often even faster than standard braces treatment. You’ll be able to see your incredible results in just 12 to 18 months. For patients with less severe smile alignment problems, they can be done with their Invisalign treatment in as little as 6 months.

  • Which is faster: braces or Invisalign?

    While your total treatment time depends on the severity of your case, in most cases, Invisalign is faster than traditional braces. Some patients finish Invisalign months before they would have otherwise with braces. However, if you only have one or two teeth you want to correct rather than a whole arch, dental veneers are the quickest teeth straightening procedure available at our Riverside office. You can have your smile brilliant and perfect in as little as two visits.

  • What happens if I don't wear my Invisalign for 22 hours a day?

    If you don’t remember to wear your Invisalign for the full 22 hours each day, you may find that your current tray no longer fits. There’s no reason to panic. You’ll have to return to a previous tray that fits you and continue your treatment as usual with this delay. You’ll still be able to achieve your alignment goal eventually, but your treatment can be slowed down by weeks or even months.

  • How should I clean my clear aligners?

    Aligners should be cleaned by using a soft toothbrush and clear, unscented antibacterial soap to clear any saliva, food particles, and bacteria that have been building up on your trays throughout the day. Be sure not to use toothpaste, which can scratch your trays. You should also rinse your trays after every meal with lukewarm or cold water. Never use hot water as this will warp the trays, and they will no longer fit perfectly to your mouth.

  • Can all retainers be removed?

    After straightening your teeth with Invisalign, you’ll need to wear a retainer to ensure your teeth stay perfectly in place. Most retainers are removable, taken out only when eating or cleaning them for the first few months, and then later only worn at night. However, there are some fixed retainers that stay rooted to the back of your mouth and can only be removed by your dentist. These permanent retainers prevent you from losing or forgetting to wear your retainers and guarantee that your teeth will never shift out of alignment.

  • Are clear aligners more expensive than braces?

    Over the past few decades, clear aligner technology has become popular and standardized enough that your Invisalign cost is now about the same as typical braces. The price depends on the severity of your misalignment problem and the length of your treatment. However, we understand the importance of affordable dental care. If you have any questions or concerns about your financing options for Invisalign treatment, don’t hesitate to call our friendly office at (951) 494-2902 today.
