In our last post, we talked a little about the ways Dr. Friedman can help his San Diego patients achieve a straighter smile. Among them, we included Invisalign, a cosmetic braces system used by adults and teenagers alike. In today’s post, we’d like to talk a little more about the benefits of Invisalign and how it can help patients of Mod Squad Dental enjoy better oral health and confidence.
Traditional braces use metal brackets and wires to gradually move teeth into their ideal position. Invisalign doesn’t work this way. Instead, it uses a series of clear trays to produce amazing results, without calling unwanted attention to the treatment process. Wearing your Invisalign trays, you can change the alignment of your teeth discreetly, preserving your professional appearance. What’s more, because you receive a kit supplied with all of the trays you’ll need, you never have to have your braces tightened. We’ll only need to see you periodically to check on your progress.
Besides being clear, Invsialign’s braces are also removable. That’s beneficial in two ways. First, it means you can enjoy the same diet you enjoyed before starting treatment. It also means you can take your trays out to brush and floss. Conventional braces make eating and brushing difficult. They can even make you more vulnerable to conditions like tooth decay and gum disease. But with Invisalign’s removable trays, patients enjoy better protection from these common oral health problems.
Do you want to know if Invisalign is right for you? Call Mod Squad Dental today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Friedman. We’re happy to offer cosmetic orthodontics to patients from Poway, Rancho Bernardo, and beyond.

Patients often think of orthodontics as something only teens need. But in reality, many adults also need help creating a straighter smile. That’s why Mod Squad Dental offers orthodontic teeth straightening to children and adults. With the orthodontic options we offer, a wide variety of patients can end up with a straighter, more confident, and healthier smile than they previously had.
That doesn’t mean you have to confine your teeth tom metal brackets and wires, though. For adults, Invisalign is a very common and popular alternative to conventional braces. Using Invisalign, patients can move misaligned teeth into their ideal position discreetly, over a matter of months.
But even younger patients may be able to avoid wearing bracket-and-wire braces. For instance, a retainer can erase the need for extractions and shrink the normal treatment time by expanding the mouth as a child’s teeth are growing in.
Do you or someone else in your family need help with orthodontics? Call Mod Squad Dental today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Friedman. During a visit with us, we can assess your situation and make a treatment recommendation.
We serve patients from all around the San Diego area with excellent orthodontic care.
