Chris Johns, DDS wants his patients to have their best smile! For many of our patients, that means they'd like to straighten their teeth. For our teenage and adult patients who want a straighter smile without using traditional metal braces, Dr. Johns recommends Invisalign clear braces from our Millbrae, CA dental office.
How Do Invisalign Clear Braces Work?
Did you have braces as a teenager or young adult, but stopped wearing your retainer? Have your teeth nearly shifted back to the way they looked before you completed orthodontic treatment?
Invisalign braces may be just what you need to discreetly get your straight teeth back!
Invisalign can also be the right option if you have never worn braces, but have mild to moderate crowding of your teeth. As an Invisalign provider, Dr. Johns can help you straighten your teeth without needing to refer you to an outside orthodontist for traditional brackets and wires.
Aligning your teeth not only has a huge positive impact on your appearance, but it also makes them easier to clean. Clear, removable Invisalign braces make it easier for you to keep your teeth clean and avoid problems like tooth decay and gum disease. The Invisalign system uses removable, BPA-free plastic trays that are easy to care for and comfortable to wear.
Are Invisalign Braces Right For You?
Traditional metal braces may seem like your only option for straightening your teeth. However, you may not like the look or feel of metal braces. Invisalign has similar teeth straightening ability to standard braces, but are almost invisible!
If Dr. Johns determines you’re a good candidate, clear aligners are created to fit over your teeth in the same way that a mouthguard or teeth whitening tray would. Each set of of these clear braces are worn for about 2 weeks, then are swapped out for the next set.
Over time, the Invisalign braces move your teeth to a straighter, more aligned position within your mouth. For many of Dr. Johns' patients, the Invisalign process takes a year or less to complete.

- Clear aligners no one can tell you’re wearing
- They are removable for easy maintenance and cleaning

- Most patients complete their Invisalign braces treatment in 1 year or less
