If you are looking to improve your smile, our Torrance cosmetic dentist can help. We are the experts in fixing crooked, misaligned, crowded and misplaced teeth. We understand that getting braces can be a daunting process. It’s important that you explore all your options before correcting your smile. We have a few treatments available that are very convenient for both adults and teens.
Schedule a consultation with our Invisalign dentist in Torrance to see if Invisalign can improve your smile. We will examine your mouth using an advanced scanner to create a 3D digital image of your teeth. Then we will map out your customized treatment plan including the movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will take. Invisalign slowly moves your teeth into place without the pain and anxiety of metal braces. As the teeth move and shift into place, the aligners will be switched out for new ones. This happens about every week or two depending on your case. The treatment length depends on your case as well. The average case can take an estimated 12 months for adults. For teens, our office will determine the length.
Invisalign can help fix gapped teeth, overbites, underbites, open bites, overly crowded teeth and crossbites. When you schedule a consultation with us, we can examine your mouth to see if you have a treatable case with Invisalign. It is a very popular option because it is made of clear plastic removable aligners. You can remove these aligners for eating, drinking, brushing and sleeping. It is one of the most convenient ways to straighten your teeth.
Maintenance of the Invisalign system is also very convenient. Make sure to clean your aligners with the cleaning kit provided to you or with warm water. When you go to brush and floss your teeth, simply remove the aligners and pop them back in when you are done. They should be worn 20 to 22 hours per day and only removed for the activities mentioned above. Teens can also benefit from this system. With clear plastic aligners, they are hardly noticeable. Teens can also enjoy the flexibility and comfort if they play sports. There are no metal brackets or wires that can cause irritation in the mouth, which is a great advantage over traditional braces.
