Invisalign Irvine

Invisalign Irvine CA A broad smile with straight, even teeth is naturally attractive. Sadly, many adults who didn’t have the advantage of orthodontics in childhood feel it is too late. Or, they are concerned about living with the appearance of bands, brackets, and wires for several years. Dr. David Son wants Irvine area patients to know that it is never too late for an appealing smile, and that you can look great while you straighten, with Invisalign.

iTero Element Image 1 Instead of hardware cemented to teeth, Invisalign uses a series of computer-designed plastic aligners to progressively nudge teeth into attractive alignment.

Dr. Son takes digital images and impressions of your mouth. Computer software converts that data into a detailed treatment plan of aligners. David Son DDS uses the next-generation in what is widely regarded as the most precise scanning technology on the market: the iTero intraoral scanner. Dr. Son uses this noninvasive handheld device, iTero Element, to “scan” your mouth comfortably and efficiently.

Images that are captured and digitized are brilliantly clear and lifelike. Together, you and Dr. Son can view your virtual transformation on a computer monitor before treatment actually begins.

  • Fewer fit issues
  • Reliable outcomes
  • Optimal patient experience
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before advancing. While each case is unique, the average treatment plan is completed in just 12 months.

Benefits of aligners

  • Clear - Aligners are transparent. Most people won’t realize you are wearing them.
  • Comfortable - The plastic is smooth, with no hardware to irritate tissues. Plus, there are no appointments for aggressive wire tightening.
  • Convenient - Brief six-week visits let Dr. Son monitor your progress, adjusting the treatment plan if necessary.
  • Clean - Aligners are removable. You take them out to eat so no food is trapped, and you brush and floss normally.
  • Captivating - With Invisalign there’s no mystery, like waiting for the big reveal when braces come off. You enjoy improvement in real time, as it occurs.
Today's Invisalign is ideal for teens and adults for most cosmetic cases, as well as complex alignment and bite issues. To learn more about this clear choice for a straight, striking smile, call David Son DDS in Irvine. The number is (949) 565-4929.
