Your Certified Sacramento Invisalign® Provider, Thuy Nga Vu, DDS
Thuy Nga Vu, DDS, is pleased to offer Invisalign in Sacramento, Roseville, and Bruceville. Invisalign is a subtle way to straighten teeth and is an ideal treatment for patients looking for an alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign clear aligners are also removable, which is better from an oral hygiene perspective as you can remove your aligners to eat, brush, and floss.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear plastic trays that are often called aligners to reposition teeth over time. Because the aligners are clear, they are less noticeable than metal braces. Each set of trays is worn for about two weeks. They feel tight at first, but as your teeth move into position the trays become less constrictive. The number of trays required varies by patient and the amount of repositioning required.
These trays are made based off of computerized models of your teeth and your Invisalign dentist's prescribed treatment plan. Invisalign's sophisticated modeling software even allows us to show you the final outcome on a computer screen before you even begin treatment.
What is Invisalign® Used For?
Dentists certified in the Invisalign treatment often use it to correct a variety of issues including:
• Crowded teeth
• Crooked teeth
• Gapped teeth
• Shifted teeth
• Adult orthodontic issues
• Alignment issues
In addition to its cosmetic benefits both during treatment and after, Invisalign can improve your bite which in turn can alleviate jaw pain and sometimes varying degrees of TMJ disorder. In addition, straighter teeth are easier to clean. Improved oral hygiene can extend the life and health of your teeth and gums.
Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces
Invisalign is also faster than traditional braces, and it requires fewer in-office dental appointments. Because Invisalign is clear and nearly invisible, it is a popular choice with adults, business professionals, models, actors and actresses, and anyone who wants to improve their smile without the use of traditional metal braces. Invisalign aligners are removable which means you can eat anything you want and brush and floss your teeth more easily than with braces. From a cost perspective, Invisalign is often comparable in cost to traditional braces.
