Invisalign Dentist Redwood City | Best Invisalign Dentist Palo Alto
At Blue Turtle Dental, we specialize in Invisalign in Palo Alto & Redwood City, CA. Invisalign are clear plastic aligners that are virtually transparent and can be removed during meals and cleaning.
Compared to metal braces, Invisalign is a much more comfortable, discreet, and effective solution for most bites issues, such as overbites, underbites, crossbites, and crowded teeth. Clear aligners work by gradually shifting the position of both the teeth and jaws. Through a series of custom-made aligners, patients can experience a gentle yet consistent application of pressure on their teeth. This gradual movement allows for the correction of overbites, underbites, crossbites, and crowded teeth without the need for traditional metal braces.
The use of clear aligners offers numerous benefits beyond their aesthetic appeal. Unlike traditional braces, they are virtually invisible when worn, providing patients with increased confidence throughout their treatment journey. Additionally, clear aligners are removable, allowing individuals to maintain proper oral hygiene and enjoy their favorite foods without restrictions.
Your Invisalign dentist in Redwood City and Palo Alto, CA will place a new set of aligners every two weeks to correct most simple alignment issues. We are offering an incredible price of $4,150 on Invisalign aligners! We also offer payment plans for Invisalign and will draw up a payment plan and attach it to the treatment plan regardless and let patients decide. For more details, call or text us at: (650) 503-6777

What Issues can Clear Aligners, Like Invisalign, Resolve?
Overbites – Clear aligners are an effective treatment alternative for correcting overbites, as they can gradually shift the position of the teeth and jaws to achieve a more harmonious bite.
Underbites – An underbite usually occurs when the lower jaw protrudes beyond the upper jaw, causing the lower teeth to overlap the upper teeth. Clear aligners can help to systematically shift the position of the teeth and jaws to correct this bite issue.
Crossbites – A crossbite occurs when the upper and lower teeth do not align correctly. This can cause uneven wear on the teeth and lead to jaw pain and discomfort. Clear aligners can help to align the teeth and jaws and achieve a more balanced bite.
Open Bites – An open bite occurs when the upper and lower teeth do not meet when the mouth is closed. This can cause difficulty chewing and speaking, as well as aesthetic concerns. Clear aligners can help to close the open bite and achieve a more functional and attractive smile.
Crowded Teeth – Crowded teeth occur when there’s insufficient space in the mouth for all the teeth to fit comfortably. This can cause the teeth to overlap and become crooked, leading to difficulty cleaning the teeth and an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Clear aligners can gradually shift the position of the teeth and create more space in the mouth.
Frequently Asked Questions
Although both metal braces and clear braces, such as Invisalign, are good for correcting bite issues and straightening your teeth, they each have advantages and disadvantages. Metallic braces are a tried and tested solution for complex teeth alignment issues. They consist of metal brackets that are attached to the teeth and are interconnected with wires. The tension created by wires is what moves the teeth to their desired positions over time.
Only a dentist will be able to assess your alignment issues and suggest the best option for you. Consult our Platinum-status Invisalign dentists in Palo Alto & Redwood City for your customized solution today.
Invisalign offers a more discreet, aesthetic, and convenient alternative to most simple to moderate alignment issues. These clear aligners are made from a smooth, transparent plastic material that fits snugly over the teeth. They are virtually invisible, making them a discreet option. They can also be removed during eating or brushing allowing for more flexibility and convenience.
To be effective, you must wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day and be diligent about switching out each tray every two weeks.

Clear aligners are an effective treatment for correcting overbites, where the upper front teeth overlap the lower front teeth vertically. They are also an effective solution for underbites, when the lower teeth overlap the upper teeth. Other alignment issues, such as crossbites & open bites (when the upper and lower teeth do not alig properly) or crowded teeth can also be solved by Invisalign.
You are not a good candidate for Invisalign if you have a complex alignment problem, such as severe malocclusions, have prior bridgework is done (your Invisalign dentist may be able to work around this though), need a resolution of back teeth to bite issues, or need a rotation of canines or molars.
Your dentist will first take x-rays, scans and photos and send them to the laboratory for your custom aligners. Once your aligners are ready, you can start wearing them immediately. Remember to wear them 22 hours a day for effective results. Your dentist will see you very 2-3 weeks to move each sequential tray every an additional 0.25 mm compared to the previous tray. This will gradually shift your teeth into their desired position.
While the treatment period typically lasts 12-18 months, some minor alignment treatment duration can be resolved even earlier than that.
