Invisalign®

Invisalign is a clear alignment option that can be removed when eating or brushing, making it much less of a hassle than other forms of braces.

Crooked Teeth? Invisalign Can Help!

Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces. Using a series of clear aligners that are virtually invisible, Invisalign straightens your teeth and improves your bite without the restrictions that traditional braces can carry. Since they are removable, Invisalign allows you the freedom to eat the foods you love and brush and floss normally, and the aligners are free of wires or brackets that can cause irritation in the mouth.

Technology continues to advance, which is why Nalchajian Orthodontics continues to implement the most sophisticated technology available today to ensure all of our patients achieve the best possible results. We put forth extra effort to make sure you are comfortable, welcomed, and taken care of every time you step into one of our offices. When you come to Nalchajian Orthodontics for Invisalign treatment, you can rest assured that you and your loved ones are receiving the best possible care.

Dr. Greg Nalchajian and Dr. Nicole Nalchajian are the leading experts in orthodontic care utilizing Invisalign and teeth alignment services. We offer this service to patients in both our Fresno and Clovis, CA, offices and will create a custom treatment plan to personalize a smile that you or your child can be proud of!

How does Invisalign work?

A comprehensive exam is the first step in any treatment process. You or your child will meet with one of our experienced orthodontists, who will discuss all of your treatment options, including Invisalign. We will map your entire treatment plan virtually during this appointment by utilizing the latest 3D imaging technology to create a digital impression of your teeth and jaws. Every adjustment is made during this time to ensure you receive the best possible result. The 3D imaging technique allows us to create the customized series of aligners you will be wearing throughout your treatment.

Invisalign clear aligners work to gently move teeth by exerting continual but gentle pressure by using 3D technology and align technology. In general, each set of clear aligners is worn for 1–2 weeks at a time and is only removed to eat, drink, brush, or floss. This usually means that the aligners must be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day. A new set of clear aligners will be worn for the following two weeks, and so on, until you have achieved your ideal smile. Most patients complete their treatment after a total of 18–30 sets of aligners over the course of 9–15 months; however, since each Invisalign treatment is customized for every patient, you may find that your specific treatment may vary from these averages.

These aligners slowly exert pressure on your teeth to gently shift them into alignment. You will need to visit our office every 6–8 or 8–12 weeks to ensure treatment is progressing as expected, which is less often than you would need to visit for traditional braces.

Of course, we are always available to our patients if you have any questions or concerns between appointments. Your team at Nalchajian Orthodontics is here to help!

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign is a popular treatment option because of its clear, invisible nature. In fact, most people can't even notice when you're wearing it! In addition to not being as noticeable as traditional metal braces, Invisalign offers many other benefits:

  • They're customized to fit your mouth, making them comfortable.
  • They can be removed for eating and brushing, making oral hygiene easy.
  • They have smooth edges instead of poking brackets or wires.
  • You don't need to as many appointments for adjustments as traditional braces.
  • You know exactly what to expect out of your treatment and how long it will take.
  • It boosts your confidence by aligning your smile!

What conditions can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign can treat a broad scope of orthodontic conditions, and many patients who are candidates for traditional braces are happy to find out they are also Invisalign candidates. Invisalign commonly treats orthodontic conditions such as

  • Gapped teeth
  • Overly crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite
  • Crossbite

As orthodontic technology continues to advance, the range of problems that Invisalign can treat is also growing. When it comes to the alignment and health of your teeth, the specialists at Nalchajian Orthodontics are the experts you can trust.
