Discover the advantages of Invisalign at Los Alamitos Dental Care. The Invisalign System is the latest advancement in technology for straightening teeth and is more affordable than ever. If you’re searching for an orthodontist who can provide options for you or your teenager, consider scheduling a consultation with our staff at Los Alamitos Dental Care.
Patients today are looking for less of a commitment than what traditional braces are able to offer. If you’ve considered metal braces in the past but were put off by the thought of committing to two years of imprisonment behind brackets and wires, Invisalign has created the perfect system to solve this problem.
Clear, plastic aligners that gently move your teeth into position over the average 9-12 month duration are removable- for up to two full hours each day during treatment. Removable aligners give patients a huge reason to smile.
What Adults Say
Peer pressure is not something that is unique to the teenage experience. Adults typically shy away from traditional braces for many of the same reasons that teens prefer not to wear them. Unwanted attention from metal braces is top on the list of reasons patients of all ages avoid meeting with an orthodontist to discuss having their teeth straightened.
Invisalign’s clear aligners are easy to remove for work meetings, intimate moments, and special occasions. A removable system is also ideal for easier brushing, flossing, and eating.
What Teens Say
It’s clear that teens prefer the virtually invisible Invisalign system over traditional braces. The teenage years can be awkward enough without the added burden of worrying about what others are saying or thinking. When asked which type of braces they prefer, teens overwhelmingly report wanting to wear the clear aligners that Invisalign offers.
Are You a Candidate?
There’s only one way to find out. Schedule a consultation to discuss Invisalign at Los Alamitos Dental Care, and we’ll provide a thorough evaluation to determine whether Invisalign will meet your needs. Not all patients’ dental needs correspond with what Invisalign can provide.
If you qualify for Invisalign, our staff will answer all of your questions about treatment, cost, duration of wearing the system, and any other concerns you may have. We’ll also send you home with some additional information about the benefits of Invisalign to discuss in your home.
Traditional metal braces require continuous tightening of wires to move teeth into position. Treatments can be uncomfortable and lengthy. With Invisalign, your treatments will occur approximately every two weeks and will simply entail changing out one aligner for another. The clear, Invisalign plastic aligners fit snugly over your teeth and begin to work immediately to gently move teeth into place.
