Invisalign®

Orthodontics/Invisalign

San Francisco Invisalign Preferred ProviderInvisalign® is a breakthrough technology that lets you get the smile you always wanted without bands, brackets or wires. By using clear removable aligners, it straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Invisalign® technology treats the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or something more extreme, Invisalign can help. It is successful at treating crowding and excess spacing of teeth, and even overbites, under bites and cross bites.

Traditional braces are effective, but many people like the new invisible and removable Invisalign appliances. The Invisalign® technique utilizes a transparent, custom-fitted appliance. It is thin, so comfort is routine, and since it is clear, it is essentially invisible in your mouth! It is easy to remove to eat, brush and floss.

Orthodontic treatment can move teeth into correct positions with braces, retainers, or the new invisible and removable Invisalign Essex appliances.

Straight teeth help you maintain a healthy gum, which helps your heart and your brain. Studies show that gum disease contributes to developing heart disease and even to having a stroke. Invisalign® can make it easier to clean your teeth on a daily basis, and that helps to prevent gum disease. By straightening your teeth with Invisalign®, you could obtain significant long-term health benefits. Click here to visit our ClearBraces website for more information about Invisalign®.

 

  • INLAY/ON-LAY

    INLAY/ON-LAY

    An inlay is similar to a filling and lies inside the cusp tips of the tooth. They are custom-made to fit the prepared cavity and are then cemented into place. An on-lay is a more extensive reconstruction that covers one or more cusps of a tooth. On-lays are indicated in situations where a substantial reconstruction is required. However, more of the tooth structure can be conserved compared to the placement of a crown.

    To repair damage to the tooth’s biting surface, rather than using a simple filling or a crown, Dr. Benjamin will often use an inlay or an on-lay. Inlays and on-lays can be made from porcelain, gold or composite resin, although porcelain is now becoming the material of choice because of its strength and potential to match the natural color of your tooth.

  • DENTURE (COMPLETE/PARTIAL)

    DENTURE (COMPLETE/PARTIAL)

    Dentures, whether full or partial, are a removable solution for replacement of multiple or completely missing teeth. This type of treatment is a choice when there is not sufficient or available support for a fixed bridge. We pride ourselves in creating beautiful new smiles for many who would not expect to smile like themselves again.

  • LASER DENTISTRY

    LASER DENTISTRY

    Treat or Prevent Periodontal Disease!
    Dr. Benjamin may recommend using the laser to remove debris, infected gums and bacteria between your teeth and gums that can cause periodontal disease, bleeding gums, gum recession and even loss of teeth. The laser is highly effective at killing bacteria and may even stimulate gum tissue growth.

    Improve a Gummy Smile
    We can reshape your gums to improve the appearance of your smile by removing excess gum tissue (free gingiva) that gives you a “Gummy Smile” or makes your teeth appear irregular in size or shape.

    Remove Oral Growths!
    We can remove growths or excess tissue in your mouth such as gum tissue over an unerupted or partially erupted wisdom tooth, fibromas, amalgam tattoo and others.
