She had great steady hands to ensure that the extraction went smoothly and also made sure I was feeling comfortable throughout the entire process. Dr. Nguyen and her staff are very professional and genuine, always making sure their patients receive the best quality service anyone could ask for! Almeda Dental is by far the best dental office I have ever been to and I am very glad that Dr. Thu Nguyen is my dentist!

My 2nd visit. The staff and Doctor Thu are very nice and helpful and are willing to go the extra mile. This will be my permanent dentist moving forward. I’ve been to others and they want to rip you off immediately with stuff you don’t need. Doctor Thu is straight to the point and cares about her patients.

Normally, I don't write reviews. However, I am highly impressed with Almeda Dental. Dr. Nguyen and her staff do an excellent job! It took me a long time to find a Dentist that I feel confident in, and this one definitely meets my expectations. I am also very impressed with how clean they keep their business. I will continue to come here for years to come.

Marisol V.
They did amazing with my visit, everyone was so nice and welcoming! I got a cleaning and they treated me and my teeth with care. I really appreciate them!
Lindsey P.
Yet another 5 star review from another patient. I chose Almeda because of their reviews. I thought there is no way Almeda could be so good that they have ALL 5 STAR REVIEWS. I now understand why. I went in to be told what I already knew. I needed my wisdom teeth out. I had been in pain for a solid week. My appointment was for 11. I was back in a chair with someone AT 11! Within 45 minutes they were able to schedule me to have my wisdom teeth removed that day within the next hour. The procedure took another hour and mine were deeply impacted. I am so impressed with the staff, dental assistant, dental hygienist and oral surgeon. I would highly recommend coming to them.

The Invisalign Advantage

Invisalign, a modern alternative to traditional metal braces, uses a series of custom-made clear aligners to gently and effectively shift your teeth into alignment. This innovative system provides numerous benefits:

  • Nearly Invisible: The clear aligners are discreet, making Invisalign an ideal choice for both adults and teens who prefer a less noticeable teeth-straightening option.
  • Enhanced Comfort: Without the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces, Invisalign offers a more comfortable treatment experience.
  • Removable Convenience: Invisalign aligners can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, ensuring better oral hygiene during treatment.
  • Reduced Oral Irritation: The smooth plastic aligners are less likely to cause discomfort or damage to your cheeks and gums.
  • Potentially Shorter Treatment Time: Many patients complete their Invisalign treatment in about 12 months, though this varies based on individual cases.

What Does Invisalign Treat?

Invisalign is our go-to solution for correcting a variety of dental issues, offering both aesthetic and functional benefits. This advanced treatment effectively addresses several conditions:

  • Overbite: Corrects where upper teeth significantly overlap the lower teeth, improving bite function and reducing wear.
  • Underbite: Alleviates issues caused by lower teeth protruding beyond upper teeth, enhancing chewing and speech.
  • Crossbite: Adjusts upper teeth that sit inside lower teeth when closed, preventing uneven wear and gum problems.
  • Gap Teeth: Closes unsightly spaces, reducing food traps and gum disease risks.
  • Crowded Teeth: Resolves lack of space in the jaw, making cleaning easier and decreasing decay and disease chances.
  • General Teeth Straightening: Perfect for correcting slightly crooked or misaligned teeth, offering a more uniform and attractive smile.

Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign is an excellent choice for many seeking a straighter smile, but it's particularly suited for certain types of patients. The ideal candidate for Invisalign typically includes:

  • Teens and Adults: While Invisalign is popular among adults due to its discreet nature, it’s also suitable for teenagers who are conscious about their appearance.
  • Mild to Moderate Dental Misalignments: Invisalign is most effective for correcting mild to moderate cases of overbites, underbites, crossbites, gap teeth, and crowded teeth.
  • Committed Individuals: Successful Invisalign treatment requires dedication. Candidates must be willing to wear the aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours a day and follow the treatment plan closely.
  • Good Oral Health: Candidates should have healthy teeth and gums. Issues like gum disease or cavities need to be addressed before starting Invisalign.

Asked Questions

What is Invisalign and how does it work?

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually shift teeth into the desired position. Custom-made for each patient, these aligners apply gentle pressure to the teeth, making subtle adjustments over time.

Who is an ideal candidate for Invisalign?

Ideal candidates for Invisalign are generally adults and teens with mild to moderate dental misalignments, such as overbites, underbites, crossbites, gap teeth, or crowded teeth. Commitment to wearing the aligners for the recommended hours and maintaining good oral health is crucial for success.

Is Invisalign as effective as traditional braces?

Yes, for many cases, Invisalign is just as effective as traditional braces. It works well for mild to moderate alignment issues, although severe cases may require traditional braces.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the individual case, but on average, it takes about 12 months for adults. The exact time can be longer or shorter, depending on the complexity of the dental issues being corrected.

Can I eat and drink while wearing Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign aligners should be removed while eating or drinking anything other than water. This prevents damage to the aligners and maintains oral hygiene.

How do I care for my Invisalign aligners?

Clean your Invisalign aligners regularly with a soft-bristled toothbrush and lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water as it can warp the plastic. Also, ensure regular brushing and flossing of your teeth before reinserting the aligners.

Are Invisalign aligners noticeable?

One of the key benefits of Invisalign is its discreet nature. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, making them a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to metal braces.

Will my insurance cover Invisalign treatment?

Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign treatment just as they would other orthodontic treatments like braces. Check with your provider for specific coverage details.

How often do I need to visit the dentist during Invisalign treatment?

Regular check-ins, typically every 4-6 weeks, are necessary to monitor progress and receive your next set of aligners.
