Invisalign makes it possible for patients to have great-looking, healthy teeth without sacrificing their image during treatment. With clear plastic aligners, Invisalign straightens teeth more quickly than metal braces and eliminates the need for unsightly brackets and wires. Most patients with common bite irregularities, such as overbite, underbite, and crossbite, are eligible to receive Invisalign as long as their jaws have finished developing. Choosing this treatment may be even easier after learning about the benefits of treatment and how the process works at the office of our West Hollywood Invisalign expert.
The benefits of Invisalign apply to not only appearance but also other aspects of oral wellness, such as comfort and health. Because Invisalign lets patients maintain their appearance while their teeth are straightened, it is especially favorable for patients who work in a professional environment or attend school. No brackets or wires are involved, which means that patients enjoy a high level of comfort during treatment by our expert in Invisalign in West Hollywood. The ability to take the aligners out enables easy brushing and flossing so that patients can reduce their risks of tooth decay and gum disease.
Invisalign West Hollywood
Individuals who are found to be eligible for this treatment visit our West Hollywood Invisalign expert to have photos and bite impressions taken of their teeth. These images are considered alongside dental records for personalizing a treatment plan. Our dentist refines the aligner designs and orders them from Invisalign before dispensing the aligners to patients, who wear them for periods of weeks before switching to new aligners. The duration of treatment depends on the extent of correction patients require, but most individuals finish within one to two years.
As with other orthodontics, Invisalign offers lifelong improvements in appearance, comfort, and resistance against oral health problems. When certain types of bite irregularities are present, patients may receive recommendations for additional appliances from our West Hollywood cosmetic dentist. Retainers are used for varying amounts of time after the corrective period to keep the teeth in their new positions. A consultation with our expert in Invisalign in West Hollywood can be scheduled to learn more about what this treatment offers.
