Would you like to straighten your smile without obtrusive traditional braces? Modern orthodontics has an answer for patients seeking a minimal-fuss, discreet treatment. Beachside Smiles in Manhattan Beach, California, offers the Invisalign orthodontic system — a treatment that uses minimally visible and detachable trays to straighten smiles. There are no uncomfortable or sharp brackets and wires to catch on cheeks, lips, and tongue. Instead, Invisalign aligners are smooth, comfortable, and nearly invisible to the unsuspecting eye.
All Invisalign treatments start with an expert consultation with our dentist, Dr. Don Mungcal. This session allows us to examine your bite, teeth, and oral health to determine your eligibility for Invisalign. Typically, potential candidates for Invisalign aligners should be in good health and be committed to complying with the usage of aligners.
If you are eligible for Invisalign, we can use this treatment to correct numerous orthodontic issues, including malocclusion and crooked and overcrowded teeth. This treatment starts with a digital scan of your teeth to generate a 3D model of your smile, which is used to plan your treatment and fabricate a set of aligners.
Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving to the next in line. Gradually, little by little, you’ll achieve your dream smile sooner than you think. Typically, Invisalign treatment requires 12-18 months, but milder cases only take a few months. However, to achieve speedy results, you must wear the aligners 20-22 hours daily, only removing them when eating or brushing your teeth.
Invisalign clear braces are virtually invisible, giving you the straight smile you’ve always wanted without drawing unnecessary attention.
The other benefits of Invisalign include:
Taking care of your aligners is easy. Simply rinse them with warm water to remove saliva, food debris, and unwanted bacteria. Also, gently brush them with non-abrasive toothpaste using a soft-bristled toothbrush. When not in use, store them in a dry container. Lastly, avoid dropping your aligners, as this can damage them.
When it comes to your smile, it’s easy to find yourself covering your mouth if you are unhappy with the appearance of your grin. For adults and teenagers, one of the most horrible moments is when you are told to “say cheese” for a photo only to feel pressured to smile with your lips pursed because of crooked or misaligned teeth.
You no longer have to settle for a misaligned smile because you dread orthodontic treatments. The Invisalign system from Beachside Smiles is fast, discreet, and convenient.
