Invisalign in Los Angeles, CA


Dental science is progressing at a high pace. The latest technologies, such as digital x-ray, laser dentistry, dental implants, intraoral camera, Zoom whitening, VELscope, etc., are clear examples of how technology is shaping dentistry. One such technology is Invisalign. These transparent aligners make up the best option for you if you do not want metal braces.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a teeth alignment system comprising transparent aligners used for orthodontic treatment. They are made up of SmartTrack, a flexible thermoplastic material. They fit snugly over your teeth and are difficult to notice. We use them to treat mild to moderate crowding and spacing. 

When Do I Need Invisalign?

You would require Invisalign if you have:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite 
  • Crowding
  • Excessively spaced teeth

Benefits of Invisalign

They are aesthetically pleasing 

Most people shun the idea of getting orthodontic treatment because of unsightly braces. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about that because they are transparent and not very noticeable like brackets and wires. You can easily wear them for 22 hours. 

You can remove them 

Unlike metal braces that cannot be removed during the duration of the treatment, Invisalign is removable. You can remove these aligners while eating and drinking. Also, with these, it is easy for you to brush and floss your teeth regularly. 

Fewer chances of problems 

Breaking wires and falling brackets are the biggest issues with metal braces. You don’t have to deal with these issues with Invisalign. These clear braces are sans any bracket or wire. Hence, you don’t have to visit us to get these problems fixed. 

What Should I Know Before Getting Invisalign? 

You might need attachments

Although Invisalign does not involve using wires or rubbers, we might use attachments, depending on your case. We may place small ceramic buttons on your teeth to create extra pressure points. It will help move your teeth in the desired direction. 

You may not require molds

We use 3D scanning to take the impression of your mouth, study the impression, and create the treatment plan. This is a benefit if you are not comfortable giving the impression of your mouth for mold preparation. 

You will have to brush and floss after every meal 

You can remove your aligners before eating or drinking something. But before wearing them, you need to brush and floss your teeth to ensure that food particles aren’t stuck between the aligners and your teeth.
