Invisalign is quite different from traditional orthodontics. A series of custom made clear plastic aligners rather than wires, bands, and brackets align the teeth. The aligners are removable for activities like eating and oral hygiene, and they are unnoticeable at first glance.
Invisible braces are more convenient, easy to care for, difficult to notice, and less painful than traditional braces. If you have decided to straighten your teeth with Invisalign or a similar product, there are some steps you can take to make your experience as good as it can be. Here are some tips for how to get the most from invisible braces in San Francisco.
Wear Your Aligners As Much As Possible
Unlike metal braces that are fixed in your mouth, invisible braces are removable. You can take them out to brush, floss, or eat, but they should remain in your mouth at any other time. This is especially true for the first 48 hours after you switch to a new set of trays.
Practice Speaking With Your Trays In
It may take some time to get used to speaking with your trays in. This is normal and you will adjust in a short period of time.

If you are looking for a skilled dentist who goes the extra mile for his patients and delivers exceptional service, I recommend Dr. Azim. He instantly put me at east with his friendly and easy going demeanor. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He made it very convenient and comfortable to get dental work done, and accommodated my schedule. Although he took the time to walk me through the exam, and explain his findings, he managed to get me in and out of my appointment on time. He provided me with multiple and detailed treatment options and took into consideration my needs, expectations and budget. Highly recommended.
I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Azim: l appreciate how thorough, detailed, compassionate and caring he is. I’d been seen by 6 different dentists before I was referred to Dr. Azim, and all 6 told me either that the work l needed was too complicated for them, or that the costs would be prohibitive. Dr Azim listened to me compassionately, and came up with both short- and long-term plans to meet my needs. My family is so impressed with the care l’ve received that they’re considering transferring their care to him too.
Dr. Azim goes above and beyond to make sure his patients are comfortable with their procedures and understand the entire process. Unlike other dentists I went to for consultations he was very straightforward and transparent. What really sold me was his impressive patient before/after pictures. You’ll definitely leave his office completely satisfied– highly recommend!
Dr. Azim is a great dentist. His chair side manner is amazing. He explained all the details about my dental procedure and called me to follow up the next day after it was completed. I recommended him to my mother-in-law and she was very satisfied with the level of care she received.
I had a great experience at Dr. Azim’s office. You are initially greeted by the best welcoming staff, then taken care by the most knowledgeable, experienced and kindest doctor. Dr. Azim has excellent chair side manners, explains all procedures in details and makes sure that you are satisfied with all steps. Highly recommend him and his office.
Dr. Azim is fantastic! On top of being very good at what he does, he’s extremely nice and easy going. I can’t recommend Dr. Azim enough.
outstanding doc. Did a great job for me in a record time with relatively lower costs. Personalized service, very responsive.
best teeth doc ever treated me.
I had nothing but a pleasant experience at this dentist. Everything I hate about going to the dentist and doctors in general was not a problem at all for me. Not only was the website easy to manage, Dr. Azim explained all I needed to know very clearly so everything about my restoration procedure was transparent, not to mention he is a very respectful dentist. Highly recommend.
Dr. Azim is amazing! Every time I visit him, I am greeted with the warmest welcome! I high recommend everyone to go to him as every time I go, I leave with the PERFECT smile.
