Studio City area dentist describes Invisalign orthodontics
Misaligned teeth are a common concern. As the adult teeth come in, many parents may notice that their children are not benefiting from a beautifully aligned smile. Alternatively, some adults may want to address misaligned teeth that they were not able to improve earlier in life. Both teenagers and adults can use orthodontia to realign their smile, but many are turned off at the concept of traditional metal bracket and wire braces. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat of A-Dental Center may suggest alternative solutions such as Invisalign.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that allows patients to realign their teeth without having to use brackets and wires. Instead, this discreet treatment uses clear plastic aligner trays. These trays are made using impressions of the natural teeth and digital software to develop a series used in consecutive order to reposition the teeth slowly. Each tray is intended for wear for two weeks at a time to move teeth gently into better positions within the dental arch.
Invisalign works without brackets and wires, which is one reason why many patients find it to be a more desirable choice. They love the ability to improve their smile without hiding it throughout the transformation. They love the advantages of Invisalign.
- Easy to use
- Provides fast results
- Curbs embarrassment with traditional orthodontia
- Comfortable to wear
- Removable to care for the natural teeth easier
- Eliminates the need for brackets and wires
- Long-term results with a retainer
Invisalign is proven to offer patients a way of realigning their teeth without conventional braces. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat and the team of A-Dental Center can use Invisalign to address mild to moderate misalignment of the dental arch and the bite. Patients with severe misalignment or other issues such as overcrowding may still need to see an orthodontic specialist for treatment, but mild to moderate concerns can easily be addressed using Invisalign therapy.
