Invisalign & Clear Braces In Irvine, CA
For many people the process to straighten teeth seems unappealing and inconvenient, and wearing braces may not work around your life or schedule. Invisalign® works around your life, so instead of living with discontentment, contact Dr. Jose Lomboy to learn how your smile can be corrected quickly and discreetly. Located in Irvine, Woodbridge Dental Services provides Invisalign® clear aligners for healthy and beautiful smiles.
The Aesthetics of Invisalign Trays
The process of straightening teeth with Invisalign takes about a year. The discreet trays allow for your natural teeth to shine through, and they are made of soft, comfortable plastic. Patients wear the aligners 22 hours of each day, but for special occasions or photo opportunities, you have the option of removing them.
Convenience with Clear Aligners
Invisalign also requires fewer dental visits, and appointment times are shorter. Dr. Lomboy provides patients with several sets of trays that patients change every two weeks, and he only needs to monitor your progress every six weeks. No time is spent replacing wires and brackets.
Another outstanding feature of Invisalign trays is the ability to give you a preview of your new smile at the first visit using 3D computerized imagery. Beginning orthodontic care with Invisalign is simple and quick. Dr. Lomboy takes an impression of teeth using a molding substance, and a lab will have your first sets of trays available at your second appointment.
Pain Treated with Orthodontic Care
Clear aligners are ideally suited for people with mild to moderate malocclusion, or crooked teeth. While straightening teeth, these clear trays can also provide relief from jaw, neck and shoulder pain, as well as headaches caused by malocclusion.
Optimal Health with Invisalign
Because these clear aligners are removable, there is no compromise made to the routine maintenance of your smile. Normal brushing and flossing can continue, and exams and dental hygiene appointments do not need to be delayed. Additionally, the removable trays allow patients to eat a normal diet.
Finally, sometimes traditional braces can create uneven staining on teeth, and the brackets and wires can compromise gum health. Injury to the soft tissue of the mouth from abrasive metal braces is avoided with Invisalign trays.

It's Easy to get Started!
Once you decide to improve your smile, the rest is easy.
Ready to take the first step? Then getting started with orthodontic treatment couldn't be easier. In fact, you can be on your way to straighter teeth and a beautiful smile within weeks of visiting your orthodontist or dentist.
Step 1: Visit your experienced orthodontist or dentist
During this first step, you will need to make an appointment with Dr. Medina Jr. During the initial visit, your dentist will help you decide on your course of treatment. Your doctor will take bite impressions of your teeth and will send these to Invisalign for processing.
Step 2: Invisalign® makes your aligners
Invisalign® uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to transform your bite impressions into a custom-made series of clear and removable aligners. On average, the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30.
Step 3: You receive your aligners in a few weeks.
During your next visit to your orthodontist or dentist, you will receive your first set aligners. Dr. Medina Jr. will most likely give you a few additional sets for you to wear before you return for your next visit.
Step 4: You wear your aligners.
You'll wear each set of aligners day and night for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. A typical patient completes their treatment in about a year. You'll visit your dentist only about every month or two to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Step 5: You've finished treatment!
Congratulations! When you're finished wearing each aligner in the series, your treatment will be complete and you will have the beautiful smile you've always wanted.
