What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a tooth aligning system that uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Each aligner is custom-made for your mouth for a predictable outcome of more perfectly aligned teeth. The Invisalign system works for both your upper and lower teeth, and can address a variety of common orthodontic issues from simple to more complex.

The Invisalign system is an alternative to traditional metal braces and offers ease of care, outstanding results, and often a faster treatment time.

How does Invisalign work?

At LA Dental Town, your initial Invisalign consultation begins with 3D computer imaging technology. Using this digital imaging, your dentist is able to get a complete scan of your mouth and the position of your teeth. The team sends your images to the Invisalign company to order a complete series of clear aligning trays that you wear from start to finish of your treatment.

Based on your individual needs and as your dentist indicates, you wear each set of custom-made aligners for about two weeks. The aligners apply gentle pressure to your teeth so your teeth incrementally shift into their correct position. You wear the aligners up to 22 hours a day, taking them out to eat, drink, and brush your teeth.

Unlike metal braces, you won’t have to come to the office every few weeks to get your brackets adjusted or your wires tightened, which often causes extreme discomfort.

What are the advantages of the Invisalign system over traditional metal braces?

Invisalign is made from a strong medical-grade plastic material that doesn’t irritate your gums and the soft tissue on your mouth. The aligners are comfortable to wear all day and night. Other advantages include:

  • Easy removal for eating, drinking, and special occasions
  • Easy removal for brushing and flossing your teeth to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment
  • Practically invisible on your teeth
  • Treatment times up to 50% faster than metal braces
  • No risk of broken wires
  • Ability to correct a variety of common orthodontic issues
  • Allows you to enjoy all your favorite foods without worry of damaging your braces

Invisalign isn’t only convenient, it’s highly effective at correcting problems like:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Unevenly spaced teeth, or gaps
  • Crowded teeth
