Cupertino Dentist Discusses the Benefits of Clear Braces


Do you suffer from crooked or crowded teeth? Smile misalignment can be embarrassing and leave patients feeling self-conscious about their teeth. While braces can correct misalignment, many people feel hesitant to receive a mouth full of metal. Thankfully, LaFrom Dentistry offers a clear and comfortable alternative: Invisalign. In today’s blog, your Cupertino dentist, Dr. Randy LaFrom, uses a fun and informative quiz to discuss the advantages of the Invisalign system.

Invisalign Clear Braces Quiz

1. True or False: Invisalign corrects smiles with clear plastic aligners.

2. True or False: The aligners can be removed before meals.

3. True or False: Invisalign offers a special system just for teens.

4. True or False: Invisalign requires fewer office visits.

Answer Key

1. True. The aligners are custom-made for comfort and accuracy. Patients wear the aligners between 20 and 22 hours each day. About every two weeks, they will upgrade to a new set as their teeth are gradually and gently corrected. The entire process typically lasts a year for adults and around 18 months for teens depending upon the severity of the case. Some cases can be completed in as little as six months!

2. True. Since clear braces can be removed, patients don’t need to alter their diets or avoid certain foods. Removable aligners also make thorough brushing and flossing easier, improving oral hygiene and reducing the risk of tooth decay and teeth stains.

3. True. With Invisalign Teen, parents can monitor their child’s usage. Each aligner contains a small blue dot that wears away if the aligners are worn properly. Invisalign also provides up to six replacement aligners.

4. True. On average, patients only need to see their Cupertino CA cosmetic dentist once every six weeks, saving both time and money.
