At our office in San Francisco we are lucky to have the experience and orthodontic skills of Dr. Katie Joyce. If you interested in straightening your smile, please contact our office and we will set up a consultation at which Dr. Joyce will listen to your needs, examine your case, and determine the best course of action.
The Invisalign® teeth straightening system uses clear plastic retainers to slowly move your teeth. They work much the same way as traditional braces but instead of tightening a wire you will simply receive a new retainer that applies pressure to slightly change the position of your teeth. Dr. Joyce's patients greatly prefer Invisalign® over traditional braces because they are much smoother and more comfortable in the mouth, they can be removed for eating and brushing, and because they are invisible.
Your first appointment for Invisalign includes taking "before photos" of your mouth, and discussing your esthetic goals for Invisalign treatment. After you get a digital scan of your mouth, your Invisalign aligners arrive 14 days later. Straightening your teeth has never been easier or available in a more aesthetic way than it is now with Invisalign® by your San Francisco dentist. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Joyce to discuss our orthodontic programs and how you can receive Invisalign® in San Francisco, CA.

Before & After Photos

This caused her upper teeth to bite on the inside of her lower teeth, and she could tell it was causing excessive wear. Her doctors told her this issue could also cause gum disease and bone loss. Her Invisalign treatment lasted
Patient’s Chief Concern: This-26-year old female believed there wasn’t enough room within her jaw for all of her teeth to fit normally. Her doctor told her that when left untreated, overly crowded teeth can cause dental decay, and increase in the chances of gum disease, and can prevent the normal function of teeth. She was treated with Invisalign over the course of approximately 10 months.
Patient’s Chief Concern: This 56-year-old male was concerned that his teeth were abnormally spaced and very far apart.
