Straighten Your Smile with Invisalign
You may have heard of Invisalign® and wondered what it is all about. It is a revolutionary method of straightening teeth without the use of metal or porcelain brackets and wires. These clear braces are nearly invisible, yet they can correct jaw and teeth misalignments and produce a beautiful smile with straight teeth.
What Is the Procedure for Invisalign®?
As the first step for our Invisalign procedure, Dr. Omid Barkhordar takes some x-rays, photos, and impressions of your teeth to produce a digital 3D image that will be used to create your orthodontics.
Once the required data has been collected, your clear aligners will be created. Dr. Barkhordar can show you a virtual representation of how your teeth are going to shift as you progress through every treatment stage. Each person is unique, and the treatment times will vary. In the case of adults, the course of treatment usually lasts about one year.
Improve Your Smile with Invisalign®
Invisalign® is about more than just the appearance of your teeth. It is a process that can help to improve the function of your mouth including correcting your bite to make it more efficient. This will also improve your ability to chew more efficiently and speak more clearly. A misaligned bite is one of the most common problems solved by orthodontics.
Orthodontics also works to correct the spacing of teeth and reduce crowding. You will need to have an evaluation to see how you could benefit from this type of treatment. You will then be shown the treatment plan that best suits your preferences and needs.
Benefits of Invisalign®
While metal braces are the least expensive option of all, some people feel self conscious when wearing them. Clear braces are a new and innovative technology that provides a very effective form of treatment while hiding the fact that you are actually wearing braces.
With traditional metal braces, one common complaint is the increased amount of maintenance required to maintain proper dental hygiene. This includes having to change out elastics and brushing more carefully around the brackets and bands that are attached to the teeth.
Our Invisalign wearers do not have to worry about additional hygiene procedures because the appliance can simply be removed to allow you to floss and brush the teeth as you normally would. It can also be removed when you need to eat or drink, so that foods will not become lodged in the appliance itself.
Taking care of the aligners is very easy and simple with Invisalign®. You simply need to brush the appliance with lukewarm water and toothpaste to clean it out. This is often the game changer for most people that do not want to have corrective devices, such as metal braces, due to the labor intensive cleaning that is involved in taking care of them.
Don’t Forget Your Check-ups!
About once every few weeks you will replace your current aligner with a new one, moving you to the next step of your treatment process. These aligners need to be worn between 20 and 22 hours daily to give you the best possible results.
You will need to have checkups on a regular basis with our orthodontist about every six weeks. Each stage of the process will give you a clearer idea of how much closer you are to getting the final result. To find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign, please set an appointment at Care Dental Center. Contact us at (310) 513-0222, or use our online form.
