Thanks to advances in cosmetic dentistry and orthodontic technology, you no longer have to deal with metal braces in order to achieve a perfected and seamless smile. Our Toluca Lake cosmetic dentists offer patient-friendly Invisalign treatment to help you achieve your dental goals. Today, we’re giving you an overview of how Invisalign works, and for whom it’s appropriate.
Invisalign moves a patient’s natural teeth into better alignment without using metal brackets or wires. Invisalign utilizes clear plastic aligners to apply consistent and constant pressure to the patient’s teeth. With Invisalign you can close gaps between your teeth, straighten crooked teeth, and even make your smile wider overall. Invisalign is also useful for correcting bite problems, like overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
Throughout the Invisalign process, the patient will actually wear a serious of aligners. Each aligner picks up where the previous aligner left off: moving your smile incrementally closer to ideal alignment.
The day to day process of using Invisalign is simple and patient-friendly. You’ll wear your aligners all the time, except for when you’re eating or cleaning your smile. Because Invisalign aligners are completely removable, you’ll find that it’s easy to keep your smile fresh and clean as you go through the treatment process.
When you come in to meet with our Toluca Lake Invisalign dentists, we’ll be able to assess your smile, and give you a better idea of whether this treatment can work for you. When we start Invisalign, we’ll be able to show you what your post-treatment smile will look like, so that you can make sure that you love your perfected smile.
Invisalign offers a welcome alternative to traditional metal brackets and wires. We’ve found that patients prefer the discretion, ease, and comfort of Invisalign to traditional metal braces. If you want to learn more about Invisalign, our Toluca Lake dentists are here to help—just give us a call!
