ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA: DENTAL BRACES, INVISALIGN FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA
FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT You’re not going to believe this. My neighbor needs to
get braces. ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Why is this
hard to believe? FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT He’s an adult.
He is an adult and needs braces. ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Then it is
good that he will get them. To have an attractive smile, a person’s teeth really need to be
properly aligned. It is absolutely stunning how a person’s appearance improves after
their teeth are straightened. FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT Really?
ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Not only that, there can also be serious health reasons to
straighten teeth too. FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT Really?
ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Poorly aligned teeth tend to wear faster than normal. They
can be more prone to cavities. And they can cause a poor bite that creates all kinds of
problems. FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT I am sure you
are right. He’s just really embarrassed about the idea of wearing metal braces like
some thirteen year old. ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Oh. That.
I do understand. But your neighbor needs to know there is another way to straighten teeth
that isn’t embarrassing. It is called Invisalign. ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA What?
ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Invisalign. The truth is, many more adults are straightening
their teeth today than ever before. FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT Are teeth in general
more crooked than ever before? ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA No. But now
they can straighten their teeth with no one knowing they're straightening their teeth.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT How do they keep it a secret? Oh. Invisalign?
ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Right. Invisalign are much less aggressive types of braces than
conventional metal braces. It is a nearly invisible clear plastic liner that fits over
the teeth like a very thin plastic mouth guard. FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT That is cool.
Did I ever tell you that I wanted to be invisible when I was young?
ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA I did not know that.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT I thought if I concentrated really hard, I could make myself
disappear. I haven’t tried for years. I will try now. I’m concentrating really hard.
(Pause) FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT There. Did
it work? ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA My goodness.
Where did you go? Pause. FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT It didn’t
work, did it? ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Not so much.
Listen, I can’t make you invisible, but I can straighten teeth so practically no one
will know. Plus straightening teeth with Invisalign is much cleaner than with metal braces.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT Cleaner? ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA With traditional
metal braces, food particles get caught in the wires.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT And I bet metal braces make it harder to brush and floss food
away. ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA You win that
bet. Patients with metal braces have a greater tendency to get tooth decay because teeth
are harder to clean. You can sometimes end up with gum disease, or even root canals if
the patient is not taking extra care about cleaning teeth while wearing braces. But with
Invisalign, the clear liners are removable. FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT You can take
them out? ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA You take them
out when you eat and when you floss and brush your teeth.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT That is fantastic. ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Invisalign
is not just for grown-ups. Teenagers can use them too.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT Great idea. Someone who is fifteen or sixteen years old
doesn’t want to look like a little kid wearing braces either. Teenagers are very self-conscious.
I was. Did I mention I wanted to be invisible? ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA We actually
have something called Invisalign Teen that we can use for teenagers. FOUNTAIN VALLEY
DENTAL PATIENT Can children use Invisalign? ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Yes, but we
usually use metal braces on them. That is partly because many children aren't that disciplined
to wear Invisalign all the time. FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT So which works
better on people? Metal braces or invisalign? ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA They each
work really well. But not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign. If your teeth are extremely
crooked or your bite is severely mis-aligned, you are better off with metal braces. But
it really takes a specially trained dentist or orthodontist to make that decision.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT But if you have a choice, is one faster?
ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Every case is different, but Invisalign seems to be faster
in most cases. When you come into the dentist office, special measurements are taken of
your teeth. You also choose how you want your final smile to look, and all this information
is sent to the special Invisalign lab where computers individually design the plastic
liners for each patient.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT That sounds very cool.
ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA They create a series of liners that you wear one after
another, each gently moving your teeth a little bit more than the last one.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT That sounds very cool.
ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Invisalign tends to work faster because instead of dentist
bending wires and seeing if it will move the tooth into the desired position, the Invisalign
liners are all pre-set to move the teeth step by step in a very predictable manner.
FOUNTAIN VALLEY DENTAL PATIENT Fantastic. Who knew something you barely can see could
be so great? ORTHODONTIST FOUNTAIN VALLEY CA Remember,
crooked teeth can create serious problems for your health. Visit your orthodontist or
