Invisalign aligners

Invisalign

We all know that misaligned teeth detract from an otherwise beautiful smile, but did you know that misalignment can lead to other issues?

Crooked teeth can cause chewing and speaking problems. They are also more difficult to brush and floss properly, which can lead to cavities.

To enhance your smile and improve your dental function, Andrew G. Mortensen, DDS, offers Invisalign® at our Fountain Valley, CA, practice.

Invisalign aligners

This orthodontic option has helped millions of dental patients straighten their teeth without the hassle of traditional braces.

Benefits of Invisalign

The Invisalign system has significant advantages over traditional wire braces. For example, patients who choose this orthodontic option can enjoy:

Discreet Treatment

Unlike braces, Invisalign's clear aligners are virtually unnoticeable. In fact, most of your friends will not be able to tell you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Optimal Comfort

Traditional wires and brackets can irritate the soft tissues of the mouth. In contrast, Invisalign aligners are made from smooth plastic that fits comfortably over the teeth and won't poke or scratch your cheeks, gums, and tongue.

Convenience

Because Invisalign trays are removable, brushing and flossing is a breeze. There is no need for specialized tools. Simply clean your teeth like you always do.

No Dietary Restrictions

Patients who wear traditional metal braces must avoid certain foods to prevent their brackets from breaking. With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners and eat what you like.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Instead of using brackets and wires like traditional braces do, the Invisalign system straightens the smile through a progressive series of clear plastic aligners.

Can Invisalign Really Straighten My Smile?

Invisalign Treatment Process

The first step towards a straighter smile is to request an Invisalign evaluation at our Fountain Valley practice in Orange County. During your evaluation, Dr. Mortensen will help you determine if the Invisalign system is right for you. If you are a candidate, we will design a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs.

Most Invisalign patients can expect to achieve their desired results in 12 to 18 months. The treatment timeline usually looks something like this:

Bite Modeling

Before your new Invisalign trays can be made, our Fountain Valley, CA, team must create a model of your bite with our advanced scanning technology. This model is then sent to a dental lab.

Aligner Fabrication

A trained dental lab technician will use your bite model to craft your custom aligner trays. They will be made according to Dr. Mortensen's specific guidelines.

First Fitting

Once your aligners are ready, you will visit our office in Fountain Valley, CA, for a fitting. During this appointment, our dentist will offer guidance on how to achieve optimal results with Invisalign.

Active Treatment

You will now begin to wear your new aligner trays for at least 22 hours every day. You will switch from one tray to the next in your series every few weeks. Aligners should only be removed at mealtimes and when brushing or flossing.

Maintaining Your Results

In 18 months or less, you will have a beautiful, straight smile! To maintain your results, you will need to wear a retainer. We will provide you with plenty of guidance to make sure your smile stays aligned.

Paying for Invisalign

Dental Insurance and Invisalign

Many dental insurance companies partially cover Invisalign treatment. However, your benefits will ultimately depend on your specific plan. During a consultation at our practice, we can file all necessary paperwork on your behalf.

Flexible Financing Options

If you do not have insurance, or if insurance only covers a portion of your aligner treatment, talk with our team about flexible payment options. Our experts can help you find a financing solution to meet your needs.
