Invisible, removable, comfortable teeth straightening with Invisalign® clear aligners
Patients with formerly crowded, crooked, or gapped teeth are “all smiles” with our modern alternative to metal braces. Our dentist at All Smiles Dental Studio in Encinitas, California, Dr. Shahrokh, has been trained extensively on clear aligners. Invisalign® is one of the most popular clear aligner systems available today. Dr. Shahrokh understands the art and science behind Invisalign®. He looks forward to recommending the best course of action to achieve optimal results for your smile.
Invisalign® uses clear aligners to reposition the teeth. These aligners are made from transparent (see-through) plastic. When they slip over your teeth, the aligners are not visible when you smile. So, they are considered a cosmetic alternative to braces made of gray- or silver-colored metal brackets and wires.
You can take out the Invisalign® aligners. They are not fixed or secured to your teeth (like traditional braces). Be sure to wear the aligners as directed by Dr. Shahrokh. They should only be removed when eating, drinking, or brushing and flossing your teeth.
Due to these and other features, Invisalign® is a comfortable way to straighten your teeth. It is also effective because Invisalign® uses the same principles as braces to move the teeth. The aligners place gentle yet consistent force on the teeth. When worn as instructed, aligners gradually straighten the teeth. Straight teeth not only look pleasing to the eye, but they are also easier to clean effectively.
Candidates for Invisalign®
Dr. Shahrokh will determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign® following a consultation at our office. Thanks to advancements in the Invisalign® design over time, it is an appropriate treatment for both minor cosmetic cases and more complex “bite-related” issues. Treatable conditions include:
- General crowding
- Open bites

During your consultation, Dr. Shahrokh can show you how your teeth will look after treatment. He uses special software to create a virtual model of your mouth. Using this model, you can see how Invisalign® moves your teeth – and how your smile will look at the end! This information is also used to make your aligners.
