Customized for Your Smile

Dr. Rivera uses custom-made invisible aligners to help you transform your smile without the hassle of uncomfortable metal braces. Because Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, you are free to go about your day-to-day activities without interference or discomfort. 

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is comfortable, easily removable, and offers you the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during your treatment. These clear aligners may also be removed to brush and floss your teeth, thereby improving your ability to maintain your oral health during treatment. 

How Invisalign Works 

Using advanced 3-D imaging technology, Invisalign creates a customized treatment plan to move misaligned teeth into a final desired position. Every couple of weeks, patients trade out their sets of the aligner trays, each one a little snugger than the last set. Patients may experience slight pressure with each new set of Invisalign aligners, which is perfectly normal. 

Dr. Rivera is specially trained to use Invisalign treatment for straightening teeth and promoting airway health. Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic alternative that corrects your bite and aligns your teeth without unsightly or uncomfortable metal wires. Invisalign trays are smooth and fabricated from BPA-free plastic that covers the teeth and moves them into place gradually.

Any discomfort you may experience will likely pass in only a couple of days. Depending on your unique case, Dr. Rivera will determine the length of your Invisalign treatment. Typically, minor bite misalignments can be corrected in less than a year. 

Invisalign Does More Than Straighten Teeth

Invisalign is often viewed as a cosmetic treatment, but it also has the potential to enhance your overall oral and airway health. Airway health involves your ability to breathe, which directly affects your sleep quality and ability to perform important daily activities.

Invisalign can expand the space in your mouth, giving you more room to breathe and swallow properly. It also makes more space for the tongue, reduces teeth grinding, and improves overall breathing. Ultimately, Invisalign can help patients breathe better while also enhancing their smiles.
