Invisalign in Los Angeles is a nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth. This orthodontic system uses advanced 3D computer technology to create your entire treatment plan, starting with the position of your teeth now and finishing with a perfectly balanced bite and properly aligned teeth. The clear aligners are worn about two weeks at a time before being replaced with a fresh set of aligners. No one will know you are wearing them, and they can fit easily into your lifestyle.
The conventional treatment, Invisalign Full, is good for most adults. It gives them the flexibility to continue with their everyday lives and diets. You are free to eat whatever you want because the clear aligners can be easily removed at mealtimes. Brushing and flossing are easy, and the aligners can be cleaned and slipped back into place. There are no brackets or wires to irritate your cheeks or gums, and because you can switch your aligners on your own, you will have less chair time and fewer office visits than if you were using braces.
Although Invisalign Full is a great choice for our adult patients, it is not necessarily the best choice for our younger patients. Invisalign Teen is a treatment that has been specifically designed with their unique needs in mind. These aligners take into consideration the contours of a teen’s jaw, and feature eruption tabs to accommodate the changes that often occur during this period. They also feature Blue Dot indicators to keep teens on track and remind them to change their aligners on schedule. Invisalign Teen works just like the conventional treatment, with all the same benefits and functions, while still addressing the special needs of younger patients.
For patients with minor orthodontic problems, Invisalign Express may be an option. Invisalign Express is made to work in six months or less with fewer stages of aligners. It is ideal for patients with minimal crowding, spacing, or midline variations. The treatment works quickly for those who do not want to spend many months or years wearing braces or other complex systems, and is often used in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments for smile makeovers. This type of treatment may include some manicuring or other procedures to speed the movement of the teeth and enhance your results.
