Invisalign Dentist in Century City, Beverly Hills & Los Angeles
If you feel embarrassed or self-conscious about your smile because of crooked teeth, a crossbite, crowding or gaps in your teeth, Invisible braces such as Invisalign may be the alternative answer to dreaded metal braces!
Invisalign is a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that both orthodontists and dentists use as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces. As of April 2008, more than 730,000 patients have completed or are currently in treatment. As an alternative to traditional orthodontics, invisible braces offer a choice for adults and teens that have crowded, crooked or misaligned teeth. Also called Clear Aligner Therapy, invisible braces correct orthodontic issues by moving teeth into correct position with a series of clear plastic aligners. Invisalign ™ is the most well known company that offers Clear Aligner Therapy, and has become synonymous for invisible braces to most people.
The most obvious advantage of the treatment is cosmetic: the aligners are completely transparent, therefore far more difficult to detect than traditional wire and bracket braces. This makes the method particularly popular among adults who want to straighten their teeth without the look of traditional metal braces, which are commonly worn by children and adolescents. In addition, the aligners are marketed as being more comfortable than braces. Due to the removable nature of the device, food can be consumed without the encumbrance of metallic braces.
