Invisalign® Provides Clear Treatment For Misalignment

woodland hills invisalignWhen you have misalignment, this could lead to poor oral health and of course, embarrassment regarding your appearance. But our team can correct your uneven teeth without the need for metal braces! Instead, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist can offer smile correction with clear and comfortable plastic aligners. In today’s blog, we’re looking at how we diagnose and craft them with advanced technology, and how Invisalign® shifts your teeth while remaining nearly invisible!

Planning Treatment with iTero®

Our team will plan the procedure in detail and create your custom aligners using advanced digital imaging technology. With iTero®, a tiny camera at the end of a thin wand will enable us to gather detailed images of your smile from multiple angles, quickly and comfortably. We then combine the images to create a detailed 3D model of your smile. We send the information to experts at a special lab, where your aligners will be designed and crafted from a BPA-free plastic material. Each set is completely clear and will fit comfortably, gradually and gently repositioning your teeth.

Correcting Smiles with Invisalign®

When the aligners are ready, you can start the treatment process. Each set is worn for 20 to 22 hours per day, over a period of about two weeks. At which point you then move on to the next set in the series, and continue this process for the duration of your treatment. The entire process could take as little as one year, and the aligners are easy to clean and store, and they travel easily too. You can remove them before you eat, so you avoid the need to change your diet to avoid certain foods. Being removable also helps improve oral health, as brushing and flossing is much simpler during the treatment process.

The Benefits for Your Smile

When you correct your misalignment, you not only improve the beauty of your smile, but your overall bite function and health too. Better alignment makes thorough brushing and flossing easier, limiting your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. An even smile is also one less likely to develop painful complications like TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). If you have an uneven smile and want to see optimal results, then talk to our team about the Invisalign® system. Everyone deserves a smile that makes them feel confident and healthy, so please reach out for treatment today!
