If you prefer not to wear fixed orthodontics, Invisalign is a great way to straighten your teeth without impacting your lifestyle.
The removable aligners are easy to maintain and allow you to eat whatever you want. You simply wear your alignment trays as directed by your doctor (taking them out during meals or to brush and floss) and change them out every two weeks to progress your tooth movement.
With the guidance and expertise of our doctors most people complete treatment in 12-18 months, depending on the severity of your unique bite.
Each aligner makes a slight adjustment to the position of your teeth. This is a process that is mapped out in advance and customized for your situation. During each stage of treatment, only certain teeth are allowed to move. The next set of aligners will continue the teeth straightening process.
In our office, patients that have minor to moderate crowding or spacing that do not need any major changes to their bite can be treated with Invisalign. Patients that have had braces in the past but have experienced relapse are also good candidates.
We recommend you use your aligners for at least 22 hours a day. You should only take out your aligners to eat and if you drink anything that could potentially stain the aligners (juice, coffee, etc).
Each set of aligners should be used for 2 weeks before moving to the next set.
The length of treatment will vary based on the severity of the case. The average time of treatment for Invisalign patients is 12 months. More challenging cases or patients that are not compliant with treatment will take longer than 12 months.
It is normal to experience some soreness, especially in the first few days after inserting a new aligner. We recommend taking Tylenol for relief. Moderate to severe pain, swelling, spontaneous pain that wakes you up at night, and any pain that requires narcotics are not normal and should not be expected.
Because the aligners are removable, there are generally no diet restrictions during treatment.
Since we use very light forces to move your teeth, there is no more increased risk of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional braces.
Yes. You must wear retainers for as long as you want your teeth to stay straight.

All my fears of going to the dentist completely went out the door after my first cleaning here. The staff and Dr.'s are extremely patient, gentle, and informative. I was recommended here by a friend who knew I was nervous about going to the dentist after many years.N L.San Leandro, CA
I give Dr Luis 5 stars as well for the staff. Dr Luis is not there full time as he is semi retired but still comes in to see patient's. Dr Luis is very detailed and a perfectionist. I have been going here for 13+ years. I moved to San Jose 10 years ago and still go Hayward to see Dr Luis.Silvia S. San Jose, CA
Dr Shah took out my wisdom tooth today. She was SUPER fast and felt no pain! I've had other wisdom tooth removed before, but she def is one of best doctors! 5 stars for the work she did today!Mer L. Hayward, CA
This dentist office is wonderful. Honestly. When I first brought my son to the dentist I was skeptical. I was afraid of being the mother of the child that screams in the middle of the doctor's office. But; everything was so calm. He felt at home and welcome. He was able to ask questions and get them answered. When I came? They were absolutely wonderful. They explained their services and were open about payment plans. It is definitely a wonderful experienceDebonne N. Oakland, CA
