Invisalign

Orthodontic Treatment in Roseville, El Dorado Hills & More!

At Hoybjerg Family Orthodontics, our mission is simple: help you achieve a gorgeous smile through convenient orthodontic treatment that fits your lifestyle. As a leading orthodontist serving the communities of Sacramento, Placerville, Roseville, El Dorado Hills, and Modesto, CA, we’re proud to provide a wide range of orthodontic treatments custom-suited to fit your lifestyle. If you’ve been looking for a convenient and discreet way to straighten your teeth, the Invisalign System may be able to help.

Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative to braces that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth instead of metal wires and brackets. Invisalign aligners fit directly onto the teeth and are smooth to the touch. Made from a transparent plastic material, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn and completely removable – which means you can remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss your teeth. For patients that want a discrete, convenient alternative for orthodontic care, Invisalign provides a great option!

Invisalign treatment comes with a number of advantages over traditional orthodontic braces. When you straighten your teeth with Invisalign, you’ll get all of the following benefits:

  • Virtually Invisible: Invisalign is almost impossible to see when worn, so no one has to know you’re straightening your teeth.
  • Eat What You Want: Unlike braces, you’ll remove your Invisalign aligners to eat. This means you’ll have no dietary restrictions during treatment.
  • Oral Hygiene Is Easy: With Invisalign treatment, you’ll never have to deal with floss threaders or other special tools – just brush and floss your teeth as normal.
  • Improved Comfort: Invisalign aligners are smooth to the touch and lay flat against the teeth, so they don’t cause tiny cuts and scratches in the mouth like braces do.
Benefits of Invisalign

When you visit your El Dorado Hills orthodontist for Invisalign treatment, you’ll get to take advantage of some of the most advanced orthodontic technology on the market. Dr. Christian Hoybjerg uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to create a fully-realized computer model of your mouth instead of physical impressions. Using this model will carefully map out a treatment plan to realign your teeth and achieve a beautiful new smile – and thanks to the advanced modeling technology, we can even show you your virtual results.

After mapping out treatment, Dr. Hoybjerg will break the plan into 2-week increments and have your own set of Invisalign aligners custom-manufactured to fit your mouth. You’ll wear each pair of aligners 22 hours a day for about 2 weeks before switching to the next, and with each new set, your teeth will move closer to their final positions. Once you finish your last pair of aligners, your new smile is yours to keep!

While other treatments like metal braces are perfectly effective, Invisalign is one of the most convenient treatments we offer. Here are a few pros and cons to keep in mind when deciding if Invisalign fits your lifestyle.

Pros

  • You can pop your aligners out to eat or drink, so you won’t have to worry about damaging brackets with food
  • Invisalign trays are almost invisible and nearly impossible to detect when worn
  • Brushing and flossing teeth will be as easy as ever
  • You can remove your aligners for a few special occasions to enjoy a night out
  • Invisalign aligners won’t interrupt normal activities
  • Invisalign check-up appointments are simple, and you’ll only need a quick check-up every six months

Cons

  • You’ll need to brush your teeth after consuming anything besides water
  • Invisalign can’t treat all orthodontic conditions
  • While you can remove your aligners, it’s vitally important that you wear your aligners for a minimum of 20-22 hours per day
