Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic system that is an alternative to traditional metal braces. Dr. Vilderman is a leading provider of the Invisalign® system for patients in San Francisco and serving the Park Merced, West Portal, and Outer Sunset areas. She helps adults and teens get the straighter teeth they want without the need for metal braces.
Invisalign® is a popular system to straighten the teeth without the discomfort of metal braces. Typically, it takes a period of about 12 to 18 months for proper alignment of the teeth to be achieved, but sometimes a little more may be needed. Invisalign® may be the solution you are looking for to help develop a straighter, more beautiful smile when you do not want the embarrassment or discomfort of metal braces.
Dr. Nataly Vilderman will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan using Invisalign® to meet the goals you have for your smile. Invisalign® works by replacing traditional metal braces with a series of plastic trays called aligners. These aligners are custom made for you by taking impressions of your teeth. The impressions will be used to make 3D models of your teeth, and the actual plastic aligners will be created using these models. This process allows for a customized fit in your mouth. So they fit perfectly in your mouth. After wearing each new set of aligners for two weeks, you will typically have a brand-new smile in just six months to a year.
The Invisalign® system offers many benefits to patients, most notably because they're clear, they're almost impossible to detect while worn in your mouth. This helps you to feel comfortable smiling, talking, and going about your normal day-to-day activities. Invisalign® also eliminates many of the hassles that are associated with traditional metal braces. The smooth plastic design eliminates the issues that can occur with sharp wires and brackets that can irritate the cheeks, tongue, and lips. Plus, the aligners can be removed for eating, so food doesn’t become lodged in your braces while you are eating.
