At Arden Dental Care, Dr. Poornima Talluri has been providing her patients with the great option of Invisalign® clear braces for over ten years. She and her team have taken several specialized courses and consulted with local orthodontists to provide this excellent service to her patients in the Sacramento, Carmichael, and Fair Oaks areas.
What are invisible braces?
Invisible braces are a revolutionary dental technology that offers an entirely new way for patients to get the straighter, more beautiful smiles they dream of. Invisalign® invisible braces uses a series of highly durable plastic trays to gradually and safely straighten your teeth over time. Our patients like Invisalign® because the aligners are clear so they can still smile with confidence. They like the convenience of being able to “pop” out their aligners to eat, or while attending a special event, then putting them back in again when they are done. Our patients like Invisalign® treatment because the clear aligners mean they can smile with confidence The Invisalign® treatment is often shorter than traditional braces, too!
While Invisalign® is becoming popular for teenage orthodontic patients, most of our Invisalign® patients are adults. We help patients who never had the opportunity as children to have their teeth straightened as well as adults who lost their ortho retainers and are once again suffering from crooked teeth. Many adult Invisalign® patients appreciate being able to remove the aligners to eat, brush, floss or to attend a meeting or event.
All we need in order for you to start Invisalign® treatment is to know your concerns. We combine this knowledge with photographs, impressions, and our mutual diagnosis to guide your teeth into the ideal position for esthetics and function. Align Technology fabricates your aligner trays which you change every one to two weeks. Most treatment is completed in six to twelve months.
Benefits of Invisalign® Treatment
Have you wondered why the edges of your incisors look worn or have a different color? Maybe you are experiencing receding gums, or have notches, or erosions in your teeth by the gum line. This is not normal and is a result of bad bites from crowding, narrow jaw types, or rotated teeth, which can cause unnatural forces on your teeth. Invisalign can realign your bite so that chewing forces are distributed properly in your mouth to give you a better functioning and straight, beautiful smile. It will allow you to floss easily and thereby improve your gum health.
Are invisible braces right for you?
Dr. Talluri offers a free consultation to see if you are a candidate for Invisalign® treatment and to allow you to ask questions about the process. Not all patients are ideal candidates for invisible braces. This depends on the condition of your gums, teeth, and specific jaw foundation.
Cost of Invisalign® Treatment
Invisalign® treatment is priced similarly to traditional braces. There are programs that are less expensive for patients that do not require as much tooth movement to perfect their smile. We also offer affordable financing to patients.
