Harmony Dental Care


You probably have heard about Invisalign, the revolutionary alternative to traditional metal braces for straightening crooked teeth to give you a more beautiful smile.  Any orthodontic treatment will also improve your ability to keep your teeth clean of the sticky bacterial film that forms around particles of food and beverages, known as plaque. If brushing and flossing are not done thoroughly every day, the ultimate result will be teeth falling out. Teeth that are overcrowded or crooked make preventing this a challenge.

The name Invisalign refers to the nearly invisible, customized plastic trays (aka aligners) that the team at Harmony Dental of Santa Clarita can supply to gently move teeth to their ideal positions.

A Comprehensive Treatment Process

The biggest advantage over braces is that there are no dietary restrictions. Braces require avoiding foods that are hard or sticky and brushing and flossing around them is challenging. Invisalign trays can simply be removed before eating, then placed back in your mouth afterwards.

If one reason you did not wear braces when you were a teen was because you heard how uncomfortable and sometimes painful they were, you’ll be delighted to know that each set of trays is personalized to your progress, so their pressure towards your ideal smile is firm, but comfortable. 

Also, the typical treatment time for Invisalign is 6-18 months vs. braces that often require 2-3 years to complete.

Invisalign Delivers on Many Fronts

And, of course, no one will even know you are being treated because of the transparency of the aligners, unless you tell them. They might just think your more-perfect smile is due to whitening and better dental hygiene.

Not everyone qualifies for Invisalign treatment, such as very complex cases that may require traditional braces.
