Invisalign® in San Diego
San Diego Dentists who are Friendly and Knowledgeable
Beautiful, straight teeth without metal braces
Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to straighten your smile. There are no unsightly and uncomfortable “brackets” like the ones used in traditional braces.
Our doctors are Invisalign Preferred Providers, which means they complete a significant number of Invisalign cases every year.

Advantages of Invisalign
Using Invisalign instead of conventional braces has many benefits:
- Invisalign aligners are clear in color and nearly invisible in the mouth
- Invisalign treatment requires less doctor visits than with ordinary braces
- Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can take them out for eating and to brush and floss easily. This means you can eat whatever you want, and it’s easier to maintain good oral health.
- Invisalign aligners offer greater comfort, as there are no wires or metal brackets that can irritate your mouth
- You can remove the aligners for special occasions such as photo shoots and weddings
How Invisalign works
In your initial consultation, the doctor will explain how Invisalign works and answer any questions you may have about the procedure.
Planning your treatment
The doctor will take an impression of your teeth, as well as X-rays and photographs. The doctor sends this information to Align Technology, whose technicians use a proprietary software program to create a customized plan for moving your teeth into their desired position. Before manufacturing the aligners, Align Technology will send the proposed plan to our office for the doctor to review and approve.
Custom aligners based on your treatment plan
Your custom treatment plan may require anywhere from 6 to 48 aligners. The aligners are made out of a smooth, BPA-free plastic. Unlike traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires for straightening, Invisalign aligners are comfortable and won’t cause irritation of the gums.
Gradually straightening your teeth
Your aligners will gradually and gently move your teeth into a new position, each one moving them a little closer to the desired end result. Each custom aligner is worn for two weeks. You will come back to our office approximately once every six weeks so the doctor can ensure the treatment is progressing as it should be.
Conditions Invisalign can correct
Invisalign treatment can fix a wide variety of problems with teeth and bite alignment, from mild cases of crooked teeth to more difficult problems involving serious bite issues.
Here are some of the main conditions Invisalign can fix:
Overly crowded teeth
When there isn’t enough space for your teeth to fit normally in the jaws.
When one or more of your upper teeth protrude over your lower teeth.
When one or more lower teeth protrude in front of your upper teeth.
Gaps in teeth
Gaps can cause teeth to shift into the empty spaces and become loose.
When both the upper and lower teeth are forced outwards so that they don’t touch each other, even when the mouth is closed.
When one or more of the upper teeth bite on the inside of the lower teeth.
“The staff is always incredibly helpful, kind and professional.”
“My teeth had been somewhat neglected and required several fillings, deep cleaning treatment and orthodontic treatment after my teeth had moved after a previous retainer had broken.
“I have really enjoyed my experience with A+ Family Dentistry. The staff is always incredibly helpful, kind and professional. They provide me with reminders for appointments and always try to work with my schedule. The doctors always thoroughly answer all my questions and fully explain to me the details of the procedures that I will be receiving.
“My teeth and gums are significantly healthier after gingivitis treatment and fillings. My teeth are returning to being beautifully straight, and I am becoming confident about my smile once again.”
