She is officially among the top 5 percent of Invisalign practitioners in North America.
Advantages of Invisalign Treatment
With Invisalign, your orthodontic treatment will be as pleasant as its results. You’ll smile more during treatment and after – something few patients experience with metal braces.
The Invisalign program consists of a series of clear, plastic aligners that steadily shift the patient’s teeth. The aligners are completely removable, subtle, and comfortable. A few of Invisalign’s most striking advantages over metal braces include
– Comfort. Invisalign’s smooth plastic trays fit neatly over your upper and lower teeth, and do not protrude in any way. Sleeping in the trays is a breeze. There will be no broken wires or brackets to poke your cheeks or your tongue. Fundamentally, there’s simply no comparison between the even plastic aligners and a mouth filled with metal.
– Invisibility. Aligner trays cover your teeth but show what is beneath. Unless someone is closely inspecting your mouth, they won’t be aware that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. You won’t feel uncomfortable or awkward smiling at work or with friends.
– Freedom. The removability of Invisalign trays keeps treatment from forcing any changes to your diet or habits. You can enjoy all the same crunchy, chewy foods you did before treatment. When it’s time to brush and floss, the trays come right out for easy access.
– Convenience. Although nearly every aspect of Invisalign is more convenient than standard orthodontic treatment, here we refer specifically to the amount of time you need spend on Invisalign. Between infrequent office visits and brief treatment length, it’s not significant.

Invisalign with Dr. Okamura: Testimonials
“At age 59, I am a Invisalign patient. Since beginning the Invisalign treatment, I have noticed two things: the restoration of my facial appearance to its original state, and my smile. I LOVE my smile. I am at the halfway point in my treatment and I don’t regret one day of having made the decision to visit Dr. Okamura.” — Ora M.
“I was happy that I was able to get my teeth corrected without having to wear metal braces. I was so happy with my Invisalign treatment because I could take them out to eat; I could brush and floss without obstacles; they’re easy to clean; and best of all, they are clear! My teeth look so much better than before. People seem to notice something different, but they don’t know what it is! Maybe it’s me smiling more!” — Gwen P.
“My biggest fear of Invisalign was pain. Amazingly, when Dr. Okamura placed the first aligner on my teeth, I only felt a pinch. I have worn my Invisalign for a year and two months, and have not taken any pain medicine. Invisalign is very comfortable to wear, easy to remove, and you will see results faster than you ever expected!” — Victoria Q.
“The atmosphere in the office is so calm and relaxing – I almost look forward to my check-ups! Dr. Okamura recommended Invisalign and I’m really pleased with the results. I can count on her and her team to keep my smile looking great.” — Karen K.
