Invisalign

Who can benefit from Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign can treat patients with malocclusion – overbites, underbites, crossbites, gapped teeth, open bites, crowded teeth, and mainly straight teeth that need minor adjustments. Malocclusion causes affects teeth, gums, and the jaw and can result in severe pain, bruxism, gum disease, and even tooth loss.

The benefits of Invisalign go beyond straightening teeth to give you a more beautiful smile, it also improves the health and longevity of your smile.

best dentist costa mesa - emergency dentist costa mesa - cosmetic dentist costa mesa - dental implants costa mesa - dentist near me - dentist open now - saturday dentist - ppo dentist - delta dental - teeth whitening - dental veneers - laser dentistry - invisalignHow does Invisalign work?

Invisalign treatment works just like traditional metal braces, but provides the convenience and privacy desired by using clear aligners made of a special thermoplastic material.  The trays are strong enough to cause teeth to move and thin enough to be virtually invisible.

The amount and timing of pressure applied on the teeth is no accident.  Your case is designed just for you! Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson and the Invisalign laboratory work together to provide you with a custom course of treatment to move your teeth to the right place at the right time.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

Invisalign treatment time can range anywhere from a few months to up to several years.  Every smile is different and treatment time depends on how much and what type of movement is needed to get your teeth into the proper position.

Scheduling you iTero 3D scan is the first step to determining treatment time.  You can book anytime online at www.mycostamesadentist.com.

Can I eat with the Invisalign trays?

YES!  You can eat anytime, anywhere, and anything without having to worry about every meal getting jammed up in metal brackets like traditional braces.

When it is time to eat, simply remove your Invisalign trays, put them in your personal carrying case, and enjoy!  After you’re finished, just pop them back on and you’re back in action.  We do recommend brushing or rinsing your teeth before putting the trays back in.

Can I take my Invisalign trays out to brush and floss?

YES! Take your Invisalign trays out to brush and floss in the morning, in the evening, and after meals.

Does Invisalign hurt?

Any discomfort from Invisalign treatment is mild and experienced mostly when you switch to a new set of trays as this is when the pressure is the most.  Nothing ibuprofen can’t help with in most cases.

Will Invisalign affect my speech?

You may experience a slight change, but once you get used to speaking while wearing your trays there is typically no noticeable difference in speech.

How much does Invisalign cost?

You can be assured that at Advanced Dental Care in Costa Mesa, the fee for Invisalign is totally all-inclusive.  No surprises at the end of treatment.

The total cost of Invisalign depends on whether you are an Express case or a Full case. The fee covers the initial consult, all photographic records, your 3D model digital scan, the initial delivery and placement of any attachments, and all visits thereafter.  Our fee also includes any additional trays needed at the end of treatment, called refinements, to ensure your smile and occlusion are right.

The value is priceless.  The cost ranges from $3000-$6000 and worth the investment in your health and appearance!

Does my insurance cover Invisalign?

It might and we would be more than happy to check your dental insurance coverage and benefits at no charge.  Just give us a call or shoot us an email.  We just need a few pieces of information and can let you know within 10-15 minutes in most cases.

What is the difference between Invisalign and other companies like Smile Direct Club?

Everyone wants Invisalign.  Of course, it was only a matter of time before other companies would catch up to this clearly amazing treatment.  Orthodontic procedures are major dental treatments that change bone and affect the structures in your mouth.

Invisalign is patented, proven technology that works!  Your treatment is designed, produced, and overseen by Invisalign certified dentists.  You can feel confident knowing that you are in good hands with your most valuable asset, YOUR SMILE!

When choosing a provider, you want to ensure your dentist is trained and experienced in Invisalign treatment.  That’s why so many patients trust Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson with their Invisalign treatment and that’s why he has become a the top Gold Invisalign doctor in Costa Mesa.

How do I get Invisalign?

Starting best dentist costa mesa - emergency dentist costa mesa - cosmetic dentist costa mesa - dental implants costa mesa - dentist near me - dentist open now - saturday dentist - ppo dentist - delta dental - teeth whitening - dental veneers - laser dentistry - invisalign

On your initial visit, you will meet with Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson, a Gold Invisalign provider, to discuss your smile and how Invisalign can help you.  Dr. Jorgenson will perform a visual consult and take a series of smile photos to document your current teeth, gum, and jaw position.

If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, we will take a 3D digital laser scan of your smile using the latest iTero digital technology.  The scan produces a 3D digital model of your teeth, which is used to determine exactly how and where to move teeth to achieve a straight, healthy smile.

You’ll be able to see how Invisalign can improve your smile with the iTero Outcome Simulator.  Dr. Jeremy then works with the Invisalign laboratory on each case to design a custom treatment plan.  You’ll be prescribed however many sets of aligners are needed to move your teeth.

When the trays arrive, you will come back to our office where we will apply any attachments and go over the at-home process and care.  You will pick up several weeks of aligners at one-time and change to the next tray in the series every 1-2 weeks.  Each aligner gradually shifts your teeth closer to the desired end result.

In no time, you will be smiling ear-to-ear showing off your brand new smile.

Back-to-School – Smile Smart Tips

August 14, 2018

Smile Smart Tips for Success!

Going back-to-school is bittersweet for both parents and students.  No one wants summer to end, but students enjoy going back to school to see their friends again, getting back into school sports, and moving one step closer to graduation!

Even though going back-to-school is an exciting time, students can experience anxiety.  Anxiety can interfere with sleep, wellness, and performance.  But don’t worry!  We’ve compiled some smile smart tips to help you smoothly transition back into the school year.

Smile Smart Tip # 1

Of course our first tip is to complete your dental exam and x-rays, and cleaning, before school starts.  These services are often covered at 100% by dental insurance.  Nothing can distract students more than throbbing, achy tooth pain that requires an emergency dental visit. Make sure your dental health is an A+ for academic success!

Smile Smart Tip # 2

Our second tip is to get enough sleep.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends:

  • 9-12 hours for school-age children
  • 8-10 hours for teens
  • 7 or more hours for adults

Not getting restful sleep?  Schedule a consultation for Sleep Apnea or Bruxism.  A custom sleep device to treat sleep apnea can improve sleep quality and reduce chances for heart disease or stroke.  A custom nightguard to prevent grinding that can cause poor sleep, headaches, and aggrevated TMJ.

best dentist costa mesa - emergency dentist costa mesa - cosmetic dentist costa mesa - dental implants costa mesa - dentist near me - dentist open now - saturday dentist - ppo dentist - delta dental - teeth whitening - dental veneers - laser dentistry - invisalignSmile Smart Tip # 3

Our third tip is to choose healthy food and drinks to feel your best and keep your teeth strong and healthy.  Avoid drinks with color additives, sugar, carbonation, or acid to protect against decay and erosion.  Choose foods with calcium, minerals like cheese, yogurt, almonds, leafy greens, and carrots.

Smile Smart Tip # 4

Our fourth tip is to protect your smile during school sports.  An injury can cause broken teeth, dead teeth, and even permanent tooth loss.  Consider a custom athletic mouthguard for school sports in your school colors!

Smile Smart Tip # 5

Brush and floss for at least 2 minutes twice a day to maintain good oral hygiene between dental visits.  Choose a soft bristled toothbrush making circular motions at a 45 degree angle and waxed floss or flosser picks to get the areas in between teeth where your toothbrush can’t reach.

Oral Cancer

April 13, 2018

Oral Cancer Facts

The Oral Cancer Foundation estimates approximately 132 patients are diagnosed with an oral cancer EVERY DAY!  That means over 51,550 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year.  Early detection of neck, mouth, and throat cancers is critical to identify the appropriate treatment and reach the best outcomes.

The main causes of oral cancer are alcohol and tobacco use and human papilloma virus (HPV), specifically strain HPV16. You can reduce your risk of getting oral cancer by avoiding excessive alcohol intake, avoiding tobacco products (cigarettes, cigars, vaping, chew, snuff, pipes, dip, etc.) completely, and by reducing direct skin/mouth contact with another person with HPV.

Survival Rates

Oral cancer has lower survival rates than cervical cancer, thyroid cancer, and Hodgkin’s lymphoma.  Survival rates have not increased in over a decade.  When detected in early stages, there is a 70-80% survival rate.  However, when detected in later stages, the survival rate is less than 50% after 5 years.  Most oral and neck cancers are not detected in the early stages, because of lack of patient awareness and the overall difficulty of detecting these types of cancers.  This is why it is critical to visit your dentist every 3-6 months for your professional exam or any time you detect something unusual.

Oral Cancer Self Exam

The Oral Cancer Foundation has put together this instructional video so you can perform your own at-home exam between dental visits or if you notice something unusual.

Schedule your free oral cancer screening with Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson today!  Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is here to answer any questions 24/7.  You can reach our Costa Mesa dental office by phone at (714) 424-9099 or book online anytime at www.mycostamesadentist.com.
