Invisalign Dr. Camacho is a certified Premier Provider for Invisalign, the clear alternative to braces. He was one of the first general dentists in the nation, to be certified by Invisalign. In fact, he was a member of the first Invisalign class back in 2001.

Dr. Camacho was also recognized by his peers in the 2013 Invisalign Shootout Contest which is held every two years.

The Invisalign advantage

There are many solid advantages to using Invisalign rather than conventional braces.
These include:

  • Clear aligners are almost invisible
  • Fewer doctor visits
  • Eat whatever you want since aligners are removable
  • Easy to keep your teeth clean
  • Aligners are removable when needed
  • Less mouth irritation – no wires

How Invisalign works

InvisalignUnlike ordinary metal braces that use brackets Invisalign® uses aligners. These ultra-thin, high-grade virtually invisible clear plastic trays fit comfortably over your teeth. These smooth aligners are created to move your teeth gradually into their desired position by changing your aligners every two weeks at home.

Dr. Camacho will take impressions and molds of your teeth and show you a virtual representation of exactly how your teeth will move during treatment. Then he will send instructions to the lab for the creation of your first set of prescription aligners.

You’ll receive a new set of prescription aligners approximately every two weeks. With each new aligner, you’ll see progress until your teeth are eventually straight. Treatment time usually takes about a year for adults and one-and-a-half to two years for teenagers. Unlike with ordinary braces, taking care of your aligners is easy. You simply take them out of your mouth when you want to eat or brush and floss your teeth!
