Invisalign® Clear Braces in San Diego

Expert Providers of Invisalign in San Diego, CA

Invisalign® has changed the face of orthodontics. Instead of wires attached to your teeth, your teeth can now be straightened invisibly.

  • Invisalign® is clear. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
  • Invisalign® is removable. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss regularly to maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Invisalign® is comfortable. No metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation, and less time in the dentist’s chair getting adjustments.

The Invisalign® process has been proven effective in clinical research and orthodontic practices nationwide. However, only a certified dentist like ours can undertake this procedure.

The Invisalign® Process

  • A set of aligners are worn for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  • 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 the dentist has prescribed.
  • You will visit us approximately once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
  • Total treatment time averages 11 months with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30. This, of course, will vary from case to case.

The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is not just a transparent tray for your teeth. Instead, it is a process beginning with consultations with your dentist. Next comes the series of fitting sessions to gradually replace the aligners regularly as your tooth straightening progresses. Finally, the last step is retaining the results.

Millions of people have gone through the program and improved their smiles. We recommend that you look at the Invisalign process in depth to see if invisible teeth-straightening can meet your personal goals as they relate to your teeth.


The first step towards the smile you’ve always wanted involves meeting with Dr. Murillo for a dental examination in San Diego, CA. During the consultation, your dentist will use the iTero Element scanner to create an accurate 3D computer model of your teeth. Based on the assessment made as a result of the digital scan, Dr. Murillo will plot out a treatment plan.


The second step requires a visit to your San Diego dentist for the first fitting of your Invisalign aligners. During this appointment, you will put on your aligners so Dr. Murillo can check to make sure they fit. From this point forward, you should wear your aligners every day. Every 6 to 8 weeks, you will meet with Dr. Murillo for a progress update and pick up your next set of aligners.

Depending on the complexity of their cases, some patients complete treatment in six months. Other patients using Invisalign require a year to achieve the desired results.

Note: Ask Dr. Murillo about the new Invisalign Go, which can produce the smile you want in as little as three months, cutting the treatment time down by half in some cases.


Once you have gained a beautiful smile, you do not want to lose the result of all that time spent wearing your aligners. Invisalign’s custom-made Vivera retainer will preserve your smile for years to come.

Why Should I Consider Invisalign?

While Invisalign can’t fix every dental problem, aligners offer several advantages to traditional braces. Some of the benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Virtual invisibility
  • Easy removability
  • Less pain
  • Faster results
