Some who have crooked or crowded teeth are hesitant about undergoing orthodontic treatment because they worry that metal brackets and wires will mar the beauty of their smile. If you share this concern, ask Dr. Steven Jung about Invisalign® in Tracy, California. Invisalign gently straightens the teeth over time using a series of clear aligners.

When you come in for your consultation appointment, speak with our orthodontist about your orthodontic needs and goals. In addition, Dr. Steven Jung will evaluate your smile to determine whether Invisalign is right for you.

Our orthodontist will use a digital scanner to take 3D images of your teeth. Using these images, your treatment plan will be mapped out. Your treatment plan will include things like the projected treatment time and the exact movement your teeth will take.

Your aligners will be custom made for your specific needs. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so you can smile with pride during treatment! We recommend that you wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. Take out your aligners when you eat and when you brush and floss your teeth.

Each set of aligners will gently and slowly move your teeth towards their ideal positions. Our orthodontist may recommend that you progress to the next set of aligners about every seven days. Your checkup appointments should occur about every six weeks.

After your Invisalign treatment, we may recommend that you wear a retainer to stabilize the new positions of your teeth.
