What Is Invisalign Orthodontics?

Straight, well-aligned teeth not only offer a confident, gorgeous smile, but they also tend to be healthier and easier to maintain. Dental challenges, including overcrowded teeth and a misaligned bite, may also result in further dental health complications that might possibly have consequences for your ability to eat and speak normally, which could be more expensive to repair. In order to help patients enjoy the advantages of a healthy and attractive grin, our office is pleased to offer Invisalign (and other) clear aligners to adults and teenagers in Walnut Creek, CA. This clear aligner treatment process straightens teeth through removable, nearly invisible aligner trays, providing a less obvious appearance and a simple treatment alternative to traditional orthodontics. Find out if Invisalign/clear aligner treatment is ideal for your smile by reserving a private consultation at Life Dental & Orthodontics.

How Does Invisalign Treatment Work?

Invisalign (and other clear aligner brands) orthodontics functions via a set of clear removable trays that steadily direct your teeth into their ideal location. To begin your care, our Walnut Creek, CA team will take an impression of your lower and upper teeth, which will be sent to the special lab where your unique teeth aligners will be fabricated. After the aligners are received at our facility, our staff will ask you to come back in to receive your beginning pair and discuss instructions on how to wear them. These aligners must be worn over your teeth for a minimum of 20 – 22 hours each day and only taken out just before brushing, flossing your teeth, eating, or drinking. Following a schedule of 1 – 2-week intervals, you must swap your current set of aligners for the next in succession. A member of our team will help you book monthly follow-up assessments at Life Dental & Orthodontics so our experienced dentist can monitor your teeth straightening progress.

I want to give a shout-out to Rachel, who is an amazing hygienist. I have been with Life Dental for many years, long before the name of the practice changed. I have been treated by many hygienists over the years, all really wonderful, and Rachel is #1 on my ‘top 10’ list. She is thorough and extremely efficient - a super smart and skilled hygienist. Rachel takes time to get to know her patients - she remembers highlights in my life that she will ask me about at my next appointment, and she exhibits genuine interest. She is a thoughtful and caring person, and a true professional. In general, all services, from the front office to dental care provided by Life Dental are exemplary and I can’t recommend this dental practice more highly.

I took my young boys to Life dental & Orthodontics because they were airway focused and that was really important for a family! We were mostly helped with Katie the RDA and she was so great with the boys made everything fun and super patient with them. I also really appreciated how in-depth Dr. Hockel explained everything to myself and our kids. My boys can get easily overwhelmed and he had such gentle and calm energy throughout the whole process! I really appreciated that! Highly recommend this team! :) Jessie at the front desk is also super helpful and sweet!

How much do Invisalign retainers cost?

The total cost of Invisalign retainers can vary from one patient to another due to a variety of factors.

There is usually no pain caused by Invisalign retainers, especially in comparison to traditional braces. There may be some slight discomfort during the first 1 – 2 weeks of treatment as your teeth adjust. However, this is very short lived and will subside completely.
