The Invisalign Advantage

The most obvious advantages of Invisalign treatment is aesthetics purposes. No metal brackets and wires means you’ll be more confident to smile while you’re in orthodontic treatment. It’s also removable and can be taken out temporarily, which can be easier for brushing and flossing. Since you can take them out, you can also eat and drink whatever you want! No more food restrictions!

  • Proven results: SmartTrack® material and SmartForce® features are clinically proven to improve control of tooth movement with Invisalign clear aligners
  • Better fit: Aligners made from SmartTrack material are comfortable, fit well, and are easy to put on and take off.
  • Convenient: Invisalign treatment is ideal for your busy schedule, since you only need to visit our Castro Valley orthodontic office every eight weeks to get your new sets of Invisalign trays.

Steps to Your New Smile

  1. Your First Consultation: At your initial consultation, Dr. So will discuss your orthodontic needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you. Invisalign clear aligners can treat a wide range of teeth-straightening conditions, including crossbites, crowding, open bites, gapped teeth, overbites, and underbites.
  2. Your Custom Treatment Plan: A member of our Castro Valley team will use a scanner such as the Trios® digital impression system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth. Then we will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile.
  3. Your Progress: As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. We may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every week and schedule checkups every eight weeks or so.

Tips for Successful Treatment

To ensure successful treatment with Invisalign, you must be compliant with the care instructions. While Invisalign trays are removable, they must be worn for at least 18-21 hours each day to work. Following your treatment plan as instructed by Dr. So is essential, as are maintaining scheduled appointments at Castro Valley Orthodontics.

When your treatment is complete, ask Dr. So about a Vivera® retainer. Vivera retainers are custom-made using the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign clear aligners.
