If you’re considering orthodontic treatment for yourself or a child, Invisalign has likely crossed your mind. You’ve seen the commercials or heard the ads about Invisalign – the revolutionary way to straighten your teeth while avoiding metal braces. But, is Invisalign right for you?
What may be surprising to patients is that Invisalign works for most orthodontic treatment cases. Invisalign treats overly crooked teeth, crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, overbites, crossbites and underbites. In fact, Dr. Artin and Dr. Mel can extend complex Invisalign cases to their patients in need of clear aligner therapy. If you’re considering Invisalign in Encino and Glendale, keep reading to see what the hype is all about!
Invisalign corrects your teeth without anyone noticing! A series of custom, clear aligners are created from smooth, invisible plastic based off your treatment plan. You’ll receive a series of aligners, and as you move from set to set, your teeth will gradually move into their desired position.
You’ll wear your Invisalign aligners from 20 to 22 hours a day only removing them to eat, drink, brush and floss. There’s no restriction on what you can eat or drink! Just take your Invisalign aligners out to enjoy foods like popcorn or drinks like coffee, and pop them in right after.
Your initial appointment consists of a 3D scan of your teeth to map out the process of your teeth movement. Based off the scans, we create a treatment plan and come up with a projected treatment timeline. Your aligners will be custom made for your treatment plan and you’ll only need to visit your orthodontist about every 6-8 weeks.
Currently, Invisalign is utilized to treat millions of people around the world! This treatment option works great for teens and adults! Let’s dive in a bit deeper about your Encino and Glendale Invisalign options.
Orthodontics LA understands that having metal braces as an adult isn’t very appealing. Whether you’re straightening your teeth for the first time or restarting treatment after forgetting to wear your retainer, Invisalign is the way to confidently get your dream smile!
When you choose Invisalign in Encino and Glendale at Orthodontics LA, you’ll go to fewer appointments than with traditional metal braces and will smile knowing they are hardly noticeable.
Let’s face it. With school, dating, sports and hanging out with friends, getting metal braces isn’t the first things teenagers want to do. Luckily, Invisalign Teen allows teens to straighten their teeth without their friends knowing, while also continuing to do what they love without a problem. Teens can eat with freedom, participate in sports, play instruments and go to prom without being self-conscious.
One hesitation Orthodontics LA hears from parents about Invisalign for teens is that they won’t wear their aligners reliably. However, Invisalign Teen is a bit different from traditional Invisalign. These clear aligners come with compliance indicators that wear over time. So, it is easy to monitor the wear of the aligners.
The cost of Invisalign in Encino and Glendale varies case by case and depends on the severity of your condition. Typically, Invisalign costs the same as metal braces or comes in at just a few hundred dollars more.
