What is Invisalign®?

Mangat Dental Center in San Jose specializes in offering Invisalign® aligners for teenagers and adults!
What are the benefits of Invisalign®?
Because Invisalign® aligners are clear, they are the clear choice for straightening your teeth without metal wires or brackets. They are great for patients looking to straighten their teeth comfortably and conveniently. Invisalign® aligners can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. There are no metal brackets to attach or wires to tighten, leading to less invasive visits. Compared to other orthodontic procedures, Invisalign® treatment is easy and can be less painful.
Best of all, Invisalign® aligners have been proven effective in clinical research and orthodontic practices nationwide.
How long does Invisalign® Treatment take?
Starting Invisalign® treatment at Mangat Dental Center is simple. On your first visit, you will be evaluated by Dr. Mangat and measurements will be taken. After measurements are sent to Invisalign® labs, a set of aligners will arrive in about 2 – 3 weeks.
Typical treatment consists of around 20 – 30 aligners over the course of 6 – 15 months, but will vary case by case. You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little until they have straightened into their final position. Regular checkups will occur every 5 – 6 weeks to ensure progress is proceeding as planned.
