Interested in straightening your teeth but not interested in a mouth full of metal? Why not consider Invisalign, instead? Invisalign let's you live life without letting metal braces hold you back. Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening your teeth. Discover the confidence you will have with a better smile, confidence that will touch all other areas of your life.
One of the primary advantages of Invisalign is that they are so much more visually appealing compared to conventional braces. They are also quite a bit more comfortable. It is also easier to eat, brush and floss with a removable device.
Invisalign is a process that uses a set of mouth guards in stages to correct crooked teeth. The gentle and virtually painless process uses a minor amount of pressure to make your teeth move into the proper position over a gradual amount of time. During your consultation our orhtodontist will explain the process in detail.
The process is not painful and you can expect excellent results!
THE INVISALIGN SYSTEM IS A SERIES OF CLEAR ALIGNERS USED TO STRAIGHTEN A PATIENT'S TEETH.
WILL INVISALIGN FIT MY LIFESTYLE?
Time for a snack? No problem. Take out your aligners to eat or drink whenever you want.
Since Invisalign is virtually invisible, chances are no one will even notice anything is different, until your new smile is revealed, of course.
You can remove your Invisalign aligners, so you can brush and floss regularly, and keep your teeth and gums healthy.
You can occasionally remove your Invisalign aligners and enjoy a special night out.
There's no need to change a thing. Continue your day-to-day activities while still straightening your teeth.
Be yourself with Invisalign. Since it's clear, you don't have to hide your smile while going through treatment.
With Invisalign, it's easy to make your smile picture perfect for that special occasion.
Invisalign appointments work with your schedule. Most visits are in and out, with a quick progress check once every six weeks.
WHAT IS INVISALIGN?
The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you've always wanted. Using advanced 3D computer imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then, a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth — and your teeth only — to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor based on your specific needs.
WHAT ARE THE PRIMARY BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN?
Invisalign aligners are clear; no one should even notice that you're wearing braces, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. Invisalign is removable. Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign does not use metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth. In addition, you'll spend less time in the doctor's chair and scheduling appointments, and more time out doing the things you love. Lastly, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so that you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.
HOW MANY PATIENTS ARE BEING TREATED WITH INVISALIGN?
More than 1,000,000 patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign. The number of Invisalign smiles grows daily. At your next appointment, we can help answer any questions you might have, and get you started on the smile you've always wanted.
I WANT INVISALIGN INSTEAD OF BRACES, WILL I BE ABLE TO HAVE THEM?
Each patient is examined prior to making that decision. There are several factors to consider and our Orthdontist will discuss each of them with you. Our goal is to make you happy and to give you the perfect smile you have been dreaming about. Invisalign can help with that process because they are not as noticable as standard metal braces.
I DON'T LIVE IN SHERMAN OAKS, HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TO SEE THE ORTHODONTIST?
Living outside of Sherman Oaks should not be a problem. Once you start your treatment you will be seen by our orthodontist once a month.
IS IT PAINFUL TO WEAR INVISALIGN?
No, they are not. In fact, most of our patients report that they are quite comfortable and that although they love being able to take them off to eat, they look forward to putting them back on becuse they feel so good!
HOW MUCH DOES INVISALIGN COST?
There are many factors that determine the cost of your Invisalign treatment: how extensive the issues are that you want corrected, how long your treatment plan will last, and the specific treatment details prescribed by the orthodontist.
ARE INVISALIGN COVERED BY INSURANCE?
If your dental plan covers orthodontic treatment, you may also qualify for Invisalign. Talk to your insurance provider to determine the extent of coverage for your treatment.
