What are the benefits of clear braces such as Invisalign for adults in Turlock?
Invisalign is a method of addressing poor alignment of the teeth, and is readily available for teenagers and adults with Dr. Ramsin K. Davoud. His practice, located in Turlock, CA, is excited to offer these clear braces for patients with mild to moderate misalignment.
Invisalign is a special method of realigning the teeth with aligner trays. These trays are made of medical-grade clear plastics and are worn over the teeth to gently reposition them. Patients wear the trays day and at night, wearing each tray in the series for approximately two weeks. This helps achieve the results they desire, typically within one year, depending on the severity of their condition and their compliance.

What are the benefits of clear braces for adults?
The most advantageous benefit of Invisalign clear braces is the ability to change the smile without covering it with unsightly metal brackets and wires. This is the immediate draw to Invisalign when compared with alternative options. Invisalign is also:
- Easy to care for
Dr. Ramsin K. Davoud finds that many patients are attracted to Invisalign clear braces because of the appearance of the trays. They are practically indistinguishable from the natural teeth, ensuring patients can enjoy a more beautiful smile without having to hide it throughout their treatment.
Why is compliance important?
Patients who are interested in Invisalign braces in the Turlock, CA area are educated on the importance of compliance. Compliance with treatment is the only way to achieve the desired results in the projected time. Patients who do not comply with treatment may expect extra costs and a longer treatment time as they may need to have additional trays made. Compliance is essential. Patients should wear their trays at all times, only removing them to eat, drink, or clean them. Cleaning of the trays is easy, and it allows patients to brush and floss their teeth as they normally would, without having to work around wires and brackets on the teeth.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
The best candidates for Invisalign are those who are seeking a discreet treatment and have mild to moderate misalignment of the dental arch. Invisalign is not recommended for patients who have severe malocclusion. However, those with poor bite alignment can use this treatment, as it can address cross bite, overbite, and underbite.
How does the process work?
The first step in starting treatment with Invisalign is scheduling a consultation appointment. This includes an initial examination by Dr. Ramsin K. Davoud to decide if an individual is a suitable candidate for treatment. Once this has been determined, and patients are interested in moving forward, a series of impressions are made of the dental arches. These impressions are digitized and sent out to the Invisalign laboratories for the fabrication of the trays. An entire series is made and sent to the dental office within a few weeks. Patients revisit the practice to educate themselves on how to care for and use these trays. Each tray is worn in consecutive order for approximately two weeks before moving forward with a new one. This allows time for each tray to provide gentle movement of the teeth into their new positions. If patients fail to wear their trays and comply with treatment, there may be extra costs, time, and issues that they may need to address. However, with proper compliance, most patients achieve the results they desire in one year or less!
