Invisalign Clear Braces

Fresno Dentist Serving Madera, Clovis, Visalia, Tulare & Nearby Areas in California

Many Fresno-area residents are suffering from bite or jaw alignment issues that badly need orthodontic treatment. However, whether out of a fear of discomfort from that treatment, embarrassment at the thought of metal braces or aesthetic concerns many of these people don’t come to the dentist for help.

If you’re in this situation, cosmetic dentist Dr. Greg Miyake can help. Using the innovative Invisalign® system, Dr. Miyake can give you straight teeth, an even bite and a comfortable jaw alignment.

And he can do all of this using clear, inconspicuous Invisalign aligners. Only you will know you’re wearing them.

If you live in the Tulare, California area and you want to learn how Invisalign can correct your bite and jaw alignment issues without unsightly metal braces, please call Dr. Gregory G. Miyake at 559-224-0103.

How Invisalign Works

In a traditional orthodontic treatment, your doctor would fit you with metal braces. These would often be uncomfortable and would require a lot of time to fit. Once they were applied, you’d have to frequently come back to the office to have your braces tightened, an experience that was tedious and full of discomfort.

The end results were attractive and necessary, but the two years or so most patients wore braces were not pleasant. Metal braces could be as conspicuous as they were unattractive.

All of that is out the window with Invisalign.

The initial Invisalign process works like this:

  • Dr. Miyake will examine your bite and jaw to get a clear picture of the state of your alignment issues
  • We’ll take an impression of your teeth
  • Your Invisalign aligners will be custom-made for you
  • We’ll show you how to slip your aligners on and off

And that’s it.

The Advantages of Invisalign for Fresno-area patients

The Invisalign treatment lasts about as long as traditional metal braces. But that’s where the similarities end.

Invisalign aligners:

  • Are made of clear plastic, so they aren’t easily spotted
  • Have no wires or sharp ends to poke you in the cheeks and gums
  • Can be removed easily for meals
  • Require no tightening visits. You’ll come in every two weeks to pick up a new set of aligners and periodically for check-ups and that’s it.

Over time your aligners will slowly, steadily shift your jaw into a more natural, relaxed position and will fix your teeth and bite issues as well.
