Here at SLO Smiles, we’re the #1 choice for Invisalign in San Luis Obispo.

Dr. Craig Main is our friendly Invisalign expert here at SLO Smiles. He’s the top Invisalign-trained dentist in town, having helped more than 280 patients to straighten their teeth since 2007. That’s a serious number of smiles!

Before we dive into comparing Invisalign with braces, let’s start with what Invisalign is

– a clear aligner system that straightens your teeth with near invisibility. Here’s why it’s an increasingly popular choice for our San Luis Obispo dental patients:

So, why do our patients prefer Invisalign to braces?

  • Clear Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible
  • The aligners are smooth and comfortable
  • Aligners can be removed for easy cleaning
  • You can eat whatever you want!
  • There are no wires or brackets to irritate your mouth
  • It’s easy to floss and brush your teeth

To get more specific, here are five facts and benefits potential Invisalign patients need to know:

1. Proven results, FAST
Invisalign’s SmartTrack® material and SmartForce® features are clinically proven to achieve 75% more predictable tooth movement. That’s kind of a big deal. Our patients also love that Invisalign allows for weekly aligner changes, which work up to 50% faster than braces.

2. Comfortable (for real)
Invisalign aligners made from SmartTrack material are more comfortable, better fitting, and easier to both put on and take off – making your daily routine a whole lot easier.

3. Trusted tech you won’t mind wearing
Backed by the data and experience of over 5 million cases, two decades of clinical research, and over 700 patents, Invisalign is committed to continuous innovation to help you achieve your ideal smile.

4. Need complex care? We’ve gotcha covered.
Proprietary SmartForce features and SmartTrack material make Invisalign treatment effective for complex cases. With innovations like these, we can move your teeth more precisely.

5. Invisalign is available for teens too
Invisalign clear aligners for teens make it simple to gauge wear time with handy indicators that fade from blue to clear.
