Are you interested in aligning your crooked teeth? If so, we have a way to do it without the use of metal appliances. Our doctor currently offers Invisalign for your convenience.

Invisalign in Turlock, California, is a retainer-like product that is made of a clear, plastic material and is virtually invisible. It is also a removal product that will gradually transform your smile throughout time and is perfect for both teens and adults.

What is it?

Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.

Why would I want it?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How does it work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

During your process with Invisalign, you will come into our office and you will receive different aligning trays at specific periods of time. If you are interested in using Invisalign, we invite you to come into Turlock Dental Care to meet with Dr. Robert A. McCulla. During this appointment, your dentist will examine your entire oral cavity and determine if this is the best product for you. If it will indeed be helpful, we will take the steps needed to prepare your Invisalign trays and we will get you started on the cosmetic process as soon as possible. When you have completed the treatment, you will have the straight and beautiful smile you have always wanted!

We care for you and your smile and we want you to be proud of the way you look. We look forward to working with you!
