Invisalign® The Clear Alternative to Braces
Dr. Chavez is an Invisalign® Preferred Provider. His expertise in cosmetic dentistry combined with his skill in Invisalign has helped him create straight, beautiful smiles for hundreds of patients. With Invisalign, he can successfully treat most cases of crooked teeth and bad bite using comfortable, removable aligners. Best of all, Invisalign is virtually invisible!
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually and precisely move teeth into place. Unlike with metal braces, you can remove the aligners and they only need to be worn 20 to 22 hours per day. Invisalign has been proven, for over a decade, to get results similar to traditional metal braces in most cases of crooked, crowded or gapped teeth, as well as poorly aligned bites.
Invisalign can be used by adults of any age and by teens whose adult dentition has fully erupted. Treatment is about the same length as with traditional braces. It costs about the same and Invisalign is covered under most dental insurance policies.
Dr. Chavez has been successfully treating patients with Invisalign for over 12 years and has completed hundreds of cases. His experience enables him to treat even complex cases that would normally require treatment with traditional braces.
Invisalign for Teens
Invisalign is effective for all ages. Starting at about 12 to 13 years old, consult with Dr. Chavez to see if your child is a candidate for aligner therapy. Many teens prefer Invisalign over traditional metal braces for its superior aesthetics and greater comfort. Teens can enjoy the important moments of their lives without braces marring their smiles.
For teens, Invisalign can be just as effective as metal braces for all of the most common teeth-straightening issues, when employed by a trained provider such as Dr. Chavez.
Dr. Chavez provides Invisalign Express for patients with minor cases of crowding and spacing. Dr. Chavez has found Invisalign to be a great tool for patients who want quick treatment of cosmetic issues, especially for their front teeth. Moreover, it usually only takes a few weeks and up to six months.
Faster Treatment with Propel®
To make your Invisalign treatment even faster and more efficient, Dr. Chavez uses Propel Orthodontics. This is a minimally invasive system that enables Dr. Chavez to move your teeth into position more easily, reducing treatment time. Dr. Chavez can use Propel to treat complex cases because it makes it possible to achieve difficult tooth movements without the need for surgery.
