Invisalign® is a series of custom-made, removable transparent aligners designed to straighten either the upper or lower teeth or both as well as fix bad bites. Through realigning the teeth and restructuring the jaws, an individual’s face shape can be changed and improved. In comparison to other orthodontic treatments such as traditional metal or clear ceramic braces, these orthodontic appliances are not attached to the teeth, are practically inconspicuous, and do not cause much pain. Apart from that, these can be removed while eating, speaking, brushing, or cleaning your aligners. Although, keep in mind to not take them off when you sleep. With this treatment, you’ll receive a set of discreet Invisalign clear aligners that you’ll exchange every 2 weeks (from an old series to a new series) until the desired results are achieved. Each aligner is constructed in such a way that they advance to the target position in moderate and accurate steps. Overbites, openbites, underbites, deep bites, and crossbites can all be corrected with these invisible braces. Once the treatment has been completed, you’ll wear a clear retainer to keep it from shifting to its original position.
Align Technology manufactures Invisalign® invisible braces. It is also the inventor of the iTero Element® scanner—one of the top digital scanners in the present market capable of creating 3D impressions of your teeth in minutes. Your dentist will take x-rays or scan your teeth to make 3D digital images and make a distinct treatment plan for you. Plus, the Invisalign® SmileView™ simulator is a technique that provides you a preview of your final teeth alignment after the procedure.
It is a common notion that children can benefit greatly with straight teeth, but that’s not the case today. We should not disregard our own mouths because they can contribute to our oral health and daily lifestyle. Apart from doing dental hygiene regularly, adults can experience having a straighter smile with Invisalign. Since Invisalign is made of clear plastic, other people won’t be able to see if you are wearing it. It doesn’t affect your speech as well. This is perfect for adults, who want to improve their smiles and have a better life. See Clear braces as a great alternative for adult orthodontics.
Invisalign Teen for La Habra, CA community
Initially, Invisalign® dentistry was custom for adults. This revolutionary dental innovation features a transparent and lightweight plastic shell that fits snugly over all of the teeth in one jaw. During the treatment period, there is no space for new teeth to emerge. This means that the original Invisalign won’t allow teens to use it. However, as it gained popularity and many kids wanted what their parents used (particularly because it was virtually invisible), the necessity to adapt to teenagers became apparent. Therefore, Invisalign Teen was made. When a permanent tooth is predicted to erupt, this kind of orthodontic treatment includes tabs that can be broken off. Thus, the cosmetic benefit of the original Invisalign is kept while also allowing for tooth development. We offer Invisalign for Teens in La Habra CA. We do not recommend this method of orthodontic therapy for pediatric or extremely young children. However, there’s no need to worry. For these circumstances, you can check out dental braces for kids.
Creating a beautiful smile requires a number of repairs that should begin early childhood, even before permanent teeth emerge. Invisalign First is the latest innovation of Invisalign products designed with that objective in mind. Invisalign initially allows children with developing baby teeth or deciduous teeth to gradually align them with this sort of therapy. It is an early form of orthodontic treatment that provides parents with a great alternative to metal braces.
Express / Lite for simpler teeth aligning
Invisalign Express provides a more rapid treatment period than standard Invisalign. It is best suited for people with less complex ortho problems because it uses fewer aligners (between 5 and 10) that are replaced every 2 weeks, as opposed to the traditional Invisalign, which can require more than 25 sets. See the following Do’s and Don’ts for Invisalign.
How long does the Invisalign treatment take?
The duration of this treatment will vary depending on the severity of your dental condition, but it is typically between 12 and 18 months. Severe cases can take up to 2 years or longer to resolve, but simple matters can be treated in just 6 months. Patients, who have severe dental cases, may require bonding attachments for assistance.
If you’re currently receiving Invisalign therapy and intend to whiten your teeth, your doctor can recommend the best whitening agent to use and how to do it in an efficient and secure manner.
The Cost for Invisalign is determined by the patient’s specific dental condition. The degree of the treatment required is one factor that affects the cost. The dental office’s location as well as if there’s an instance that sedation was involved both have an impact on the cost of the procedure. Certain regions of the United States are naturally pricier for dental services and fees. Some dentists charge more than others within La Habra, depending on their skill and prestige.
At the moment, I am wearing braces. Is it possible for me to transition to Invisalign treatment?
If you're already wearing braces, you can still switch to Invisalign. Some doctors use braces and Invisalign aligners for this treatment. Talk with a dentist near you and ask if this treatment is suitable for you.
Is wearing Invisalign transparent aligners going to have an effect on my speech?
It will, but it’s only temporary. Your mouth will not be used to having a foreign material in your teeth but it will get attuned to it. This should disappear within a few days and your speech will get back to normal.

We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML, adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by the blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.
If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach out to the website’s operators by using the following email
Screen-reader and keyboard navigation
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements, alongside console screenshots of code examples:
Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.
These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
