Dr. Shimizu Can Straighten Your Crooked Teeth Without Metal or Wire! Invisalign is a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that Dr. Shimizu uses as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Each set of aligners, move the teeth slightly and as you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position. You’ll visit our office here in San Jose about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case. Removable – So you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are not a problem. Comfortable – Because it has no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisible – So no one can tell you’re straightening your teeth. So now you can smile more during treatment as well as after.
