Invisalign provides patients with a wide number of benefits during treatment. Our Toluca Lake Invisalign dentist office wants to make sure that every one of our patients has a positive cosmetic dentistry experience, which is why we are so excited to tell you about the advantages of Invisalign. Let’s get to know some patients who love Invisalign.


Stephanie was drawn to Invisalign because she really did not want people to be able to tell that she was undergoing orthodontic treatment. As a teacher, it was important to Stephanie that her orthodontic treatment was not distracting for her students during class. She still wanted to look like a grown up as she perfected her smile. Invisalign was perfect for Stephanie because Invisalign aligners are completely clear, and thus practically invisible when worn on the teeth.


Todd’s mother actually encouraged him to consider Invisalign. Invisalign makes it exceptionally easy for patients to keep their teeth clean during treatment. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you are able to take them out to clean your teeth in the morning, at night, and throughout the day. Todd really didn’t want to have to deal with food and dental plaque getting stuck in metal braces, which is why he was so excited to find out about easy-to-clean Invisalign!


Finally, Laura chose Invisalign because she was able to completely visualize how her smile would change before treatment even began. Our dental team showed Laura how each aligner would shift her teeth a little more, until all of her teeth reached their ideal positions. Laura loved that she was able to see how her smile would transform from start to finish.

As a concerned dental patient, you probably take great care of your teeth everyday. Brushing twice a day, flossing, and using mouthwashes can help you keep plaque at bay and preserve fresh, clean teeth. But what should you do to maintain your teeth during cosmetic treatment? It can be difficult to keep your teeth clean when you have metal braces—luckily there’s an easier and more hygienic option with Invisalign treatment!

Our Toluca Lake dentist office offers Invisalign as an alternative to conventional braces. Invisalign aligners are simple to clean and keep attractive, read on to learn more!

Because Invisalign aligners are made of plastic resin and completely removable, you can actually take them out to clean your teeth throughout treatment. Unlike with metal braces, you won’t need to use a special instrument to floss or worry about plaque building up around metal brackets.

When you use Invisalign, it’s not only important to keep you teeth clean, it’s also important to cleanse the Invisalign aligners themselves. Here are some useful guidelines to keep in mind:

  • No matter how you choose to clean your aligners, you’ll need to use water. Always wash your aligners in lukewarm water—hot water can actually damage them!
  • To actually clean away plaque and bacterial build up, you can use specially formulated Invisalign Cleaning Crystals, or, if those are not available, you can use a soft toothbrush to gently scrub the plastic resin.
  • Take the time to rinse your mouth and aligners with water after meals, so that food particles don’t get stuck in your teeth or aligners.

With proper maintenance, Invisalign aligners will stay clean and transparent throughout treatment. Our Toluca Lake Invisalign dentists will work with you to find a cosmetic treatment that fits your needs and gets you your dream smile. You can schedule your consultation online or by calling our office!
