Get the Hollywood treatment with discreet, effective Invisalign
When many people think about how they might be able to straighten their crooked smile, they imagine their only solution being conventional orthodontics. Due to aspects such as appearance and comfort, metal braces can seem incredibly unappealing. While there are instances in which conventional orthodontic care is most appropriate, many cases are well served by Invisalign.
For many patients of our North Hollywood dental practice, Invisalign is the ideal alternative to metal braces. With clear plastic aligners, Dr. Elzayat has provided care that has transformed many of his patients’ smiles. Not only can the Invisalign system correct cosmetic issues, but the proper wear of customized aligners can also correct certain bite issues.
It doesn’t take much to determine if Invisalign is right for you. A thorough consultation and examination will enable us to assess the nature of misalignment and potential bite problems. If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, we can take images and impressions to begin the development of your treatment plan. Data gathered in our office is sent to the Invisalign lab, where advanced software creates 3D models of the mouth. From the initial model, dentition is gradually straightened within the ClinCheck software and a full animation is created. The laboratory processing of data leads to the highest degree of accuracy in aligners.
Clear plastic aligner trays are worn at all times and switched every two weeks. About every six weeks, you will visit our office for a progress check. Though aligners may be removed, this should be done only for meals and oral care. The proper wear of aligners is critical to the achievement of your straight, healthy, gorgeous smile.
Due to the advances that have been made with the Invisalign system, many people can benefit from this method of orthodontia. Teens and adults of all ages appreciate the ease and discreet appearance Invisalign offers, as well as the results. Most cases can be completed within twelve to eighteen months.
Dr. Elzayat and his team love helping patients obtain their healthiest, most attractive smiles. If you are ready to address the issue of misalignment, we are happy to share the details of Invisalign treatment with you. Call (818) 593-0700 today.
