Invisalign® in San Jose by Nancy Phan, DDS, MS
When thinking of braces, most think of a lengthy treatment using wires and brackets affixed to the smile. Nancy Phan, DDS, MS, is proud to provide a clear alternative to braces: Invisalign®. This proven orthodontic treatment not only provides gentle dental alignment, but is also a way to obtain a straight smile without compromising your smile aesthetic.
Serving teens and adults throughout San Jose and Los Gatos, Care Orthodontics offers Invisalign® as a precise treatment for individuals who want something different.
How Invisalign Works
Beginning with a consultation, X-ray and detailed moldings, three dimensional images of your smile are created. Dr. Phan then prescribes, details, and finishes the finest movements used to make your custom aligner trays. The custom trays are molded to your teeth, but made with final smile in mind. From there, she can give you the unique and beautiful smile you have always wanted.
Once you receive your aligners, you will be instructed to wear Invisalign® at least 22 hours a day, removing them for meals and cleaning only. Every few weeks, you will use a new tray to advance the treatment of your smile.
With each new aligner, your teeth are meticulously adjusted until you’re left with a beautiful smile. Patients can bring multiple weeks’ worth of Invisalign® aligners with them on trips or if unable to return to our San Jose orthodontist. This allows for continued treatment without the hassle of constant dental visits, simply requiring visits Care Orthodontics every two months to ensure the treatment is going as planned.
The best part of this process is that Invisalign® is practically invisible. By using clear aligners rather than metal brackets and wires, this orthodontic treatment lets you continue your normal life, without changing oral health habits or your diet. As a cosmetic choice, Invisalign is proven to last and gives people the chance at a new smile with the freedom of removable aligners. For more information, watch these instructional videos.
