Ask Your La Jolla Dentist about Invisalign®

When you walk into a room, your smile is almost always the first thing that is noticed, but if you are one of the millions of people across the globe who does not have the confidence to flash your pearly whites, you are not alone. Unfortunately, a huge percentage of men, women, and teenagers do not have what it takes to flash even a friend or family member an open mouthed smile.

Whether you are dealing with yellow or stained teeth, or are ashamed because of a chipped or broken tooth there are services offered by your La Jolla Dentist. Dr. David Kitchen can fix your broken or chipped teeth with veneers and give you a whiter and brighter smile with an in-office bleaching system, but if crooked teeth are the reason that you never smile there is something that you can do about it thanks to the best Dentist in San Diego.

Even 10 years ago, men and women whose parents couldn’t afford braces when they were kids would still not even consider seeing an orthodontist even if their budget allowed it. Having to deal with headgear while sleeping and traditional metal brackets while at work was enough to make any adult run for the hills, but not anymore. Those days of uncomfortable and unattractive braces are long gone thanks to your 92037 Dentist.

According to Dr. David Kitchen anyone can be fitted with braces as long as the bone support is there. Your San Diego Dentist will also factor in root length and your personal oral health. In the 21st century men, women and teens can wear clear wire braces with clear brackets instead of heavy metal appliances, but an even better alternative, according to your La Jolla Dentist, is a breakthrough in teeth straightening called Invisalign®.

These comfortable and removable aligners are nearly invisible meaning the only folks who will know that you are wearing Invisaligh are you, Dr. Kitchen and his dental assistants.  

The best alternative to old school braces, Invisalign® is perfect for everyone including teens and adults. Invisalign® is the only way to staighten crooked teeth without resorting to uncomfortable braces.

Your Dentist in the 92037 area prefers Invisalign® as the clear aligners are easy to remove without requiring annoying brackets and wires. After two weeks, where you only remove your Invisaligh for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing, you will visit Dr. David Kitchen for your next Invisalign® fitting in the series. During the treatment, your teeth will continue moving and become straighter eventually moving right where you and your dentist want them. After the first two appointments, you will schedule visits with Dr. Kitchen every six weeks making sure that your Invisalign® treatment series is on the right track. Your Invisalign® treatments with your 92037 Dentist take from nine to 15 months. On average, you will visit with Dr. Kitchen 18 to 30 times during your Invisalign® series of treatments.

For more information regarding Invisalign®, make an appointment with Dr. David Kitchen. Your Dentist in La Jolla will be able to examine your teeth and gums in order to determine whether or not the Invisalign® teeth straightening system is the right fit for you.
