Straighten Your Teeth with Invisalign®

Available for Teens and Adults in San Diego CA

A lot of people are self-conscious about their smile. Everyone wants an attractive smile to leave a good impression. One alternative to traditional metal braces is Invisalign®, which allows you to maintain the natural beauty of your smile while straightening your teeth. In fact, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible! Dr. Chaikin is a provider for Invisalign in San Diego, California, and we invite you to contact us today to learn more about this excellent treatment option.

Why Consider Invisalign?

We provide our patients with several benefits without hassles. We offer Invisalign as an alternative to the hassle that comes with traditional metal braces. There are many benefits of Invisalign:

Flexibility – Those with busy schedules will find Invisalign as a great way to straighten teeth without workday interruptions. You only visit the dentist every 5 or 6 weeks to make sure treatment is going as it should.

Comfort – Made of a sturdy thermoplastic, Invisalign offers a less invasive treatment than traditional metal braces. There may be some initial tightness as you move from tray to tray, but after your mouth acclimates to the appliance that discomfort leaves.

Easy Maintenance – You can easily practice good oral hygiene while using Invisalign. You just remove the trays before eating then brush and floss before replacing them. Other than daily cleaning of your trays, there is no additional maintenance required.

Appearance – Invisalign trays are completely clear, so you can straighten your smile without affecting your appearance.

Invisalign® Vs. Braces

While Invisalign and traditional metal braces are both designed to correct malocclusion (bad bite) and misalignment, they have a number of differences that can make one or the other a better choice for you.

Invisalign uses no metal parts, only clear aligner trays that gradually shift the position of your teeth. Invisalign also is removable and inconspicuous, appearing nearly invisible when worn. Both options can address a wide range of orthodontic concerns; however, certain complex treatment plans may be better suited to correction by traditional braces than by Invisalign. Our elite team will help you determine the best course of action, with your care, comfort, and results upheld as are our highest priorities.

What Should You Expect?

It is a simple process to get Invisalign. During the initial visit at Convoy Dental Arts, Dr. Claudette Chaikin will take 3D images of your jaw and dentition while making a special digital impression of your teeth. These digital impressions will be used to plan your treatment, determine the required length of the treatment plan, which can vary from 20 to 29 sets of trays per arch.

After the creation of your trays, you will return to Convoy Dental Arts for a final fitting to make sure your trays fit like they should. You will be educated in regards to your treatment plan so you can take care of your aligners and properly clean them. After you receive your trays and have been educated, you can go home or to work.

Now is the time to take the next step in correcting your smile. Contact Dr. Chaikin and the team at Convoy Dental Arts to learn how Invisalign can help your smile.

Invisalign® is a great choice for our patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your smile. Dr. Chakin is fully trained and is a provider for Invisalign in San Diego, CA.

    I had a toothache and called the office to setup an appointment thinking I could get seen either next Tuesday orcWednesday. To my surprise, the front office staff stated that they could fit me in today at noon. I came in a spoke to the Dentist and she wanted me to get a few X-rays of the tooth that I had pain with. Very quickly the Dr. came in and examined the X-rays. She mentioned that she would perform a quick look at the troubled area and administered some salve around my affected tooth. She prescribed to me an antibiotic and recommended that I see a specialist to discuss either extracting the tooth or getting and implant. I was happy that they could see me on such short notice and come up with a temporary treatment. Thank.

    As usual Dr. Chaikin is a perfectionist when it comes to dentistry. She performs her profession as if she's treating her own children. Very professional including her excellent staff.

    Dr. Chaikin and support staff are excellent in knowledge, skill and customer service. I used to go to my local dentist for over 20 years but when my brother told me about Dr. Chaikin, I decided to give her a try.
    My drive from my office to her practice is about 1 hour versus 10 min. to my former dentist's office.
    But the quality of work and great attitude from everyone makes the 1 hour drive unimportant and trivial.

    My first appt was today & I was nervous & my anxiety was working overtime (dental-phobic here!). But the moment I walked in I was greeted. Staff was very welcoming & the drs are awesome! They made me feel at ease and everyone worked together as a team. It’s evident that everyone love their job. I found a dental office I can go to despite my phobia.
