About Invisalign

Thanks to modern technology and medical advancements, our dentists at Emigh Dental Care are able to use Invisalign to help create a healthier, better functioning and better looking smile. After completing a 3-D scan of your mouth with our iTero scanner, Invisalign's patented technology uses a series of customized clear aligners to apply constant gentle pressure on your teeth. This means you can move the teeth into proper position not only more comfortably than traditional braces, but often in a shorter time. With the many advancements of Invisalign throughout the years, it can treat most of the cases traditional braces can. Whether patients want to straighten their teeth for appearance, or to improve the long-term health, our experienced Invisalign providers in Long Beach, CA can help.

Since 2011, Emigh Dental Care has successfully completed almost 1,000 Invisalign cases. They have been recognized by Invisalign as a Platinum Invisalign Provider, showing their skill and experience.

What to Expect

To be fitted for Invisalign, our dental staff will take photos, digital X-rays, and 3-D impressions of your teeth with our iTero digital scanner. Using this info, a series of clear, plastic, customized aligners will be created to fit your  mouth perfectly. Wearing these aligners full time except while eating and brushing/flossing, you will switch to new aligners at home every 1-2 weeks, typically coming to Emigh Dental Care every 6-8 weeks for a quick checkup. The aligners will predictably and efficiently move your teeth from where they start to the final position that the dentist approves of using Invisalign's patented technology. Conveniently, aligners are comfortable and easily removable, which is ideal for eating, brushing, and flossing. You can expect to be comfortable during your orthodontic treatment, while knowing the trays are predictably and efficiently moving your teeth to a healthier and more functional position, improving cosmetics along the way for that smile of a lifetime.

Treatment Timeline and Aftercare

Invisalign treatment time depends on the starting position of the teeth and what needs to be changed based on the patient's goals and doctor's vision. Almost all of our Invisalign patients are completed in less than 2 years, more than half of them in less than 12 months.    

Do you want to speed up your case? The V-Pro might be good for you. We offer the "V-Pro", a vibrational mouthpiece which can cut treatment time in half while increasing predictability and comfort at the same time. You simply by bite on this device for 5 mins/night.  We've been using this device with many of our cases over the last few years with great success. Ask our knowledgeable dentists for more info. 

After your teeth have been moved into their ideal position, retainers will be made for you to wear, and our dentist will instruct you on how long to wear them.  You will typically wear them 6-12 months full time, followed by night time wear.
