Invisalign at Crown Dental with Dr. Walberto Cantu
All right, guys. Thanks for joining us here. It's Dr. Cantu from Crown Dental, back from Kabul, a week-long vacation. A little burned, a little toasted, but life's good. We just wanted to let you guys know something we're doing here today. It's called Invisalign. Some of you may or may not have heard of it. Invisalign is an alternative option for ortho, regular braces. So some of you know those metal braces that go on your teeth. There's a time and a place for that. Some people like another clear, more aesthetic option. We use these clear liners called Invisalign. Okay? It's just this little, clear tray that goes on the teeth here. You wear it for about two weeks, and then it snaps off, just like that. Okay? So you can floss your teeth, brush them like regular, then you put it back on.
So we have our patient here, and I'm going to grab this. She's allowed us to videotape her here. Go ahead and open really big. She's got her Invisalign on right now. She's looking to close up some gaps here. Open real big there. So you can see how ... And then bite down. So you don't eat with these. All you do is you just wear them 22 hours out of the day.
I just want to show you guys something real cool with Invisalign. When we take impressions, we're able to look at ... We do a simulation of what your teeth can look like afterwards, which is kind of cool. So you can see this patient here had some gaps. And then, after she wears her trays, she can close up the gaps with Invisalign. Okay? So it's kind of cool. You have these little attachments. They're not red. In the mouth, they're white. They're clear, like your teeth, so you don't see them. But it's a cool way to get a straighter, more aesthetic smile.
So thanks again for joining us. Let us know if you're interested in a consultation for Invisalign. It's for free. It takes about 10, 15 minutes. We can talk about what your desires are, and then we'll go from there. Thanks for checking in on us, guys. Have a great day. Bye.
