Invisible orthodontia with Invisalign is right here at Elegant Dentistry in Marina del Rey. If you suffer from misaligned teeth, we offer the discreet, effective form of teeth straightening that has become famous under the name of Invisalign. These invisible braces discard bulky metal wires and brackets in favor of transparent and removable aligners. Treatments generally last between 12 and 18 months and do not carry many of the same restrictions associated with traditional braces while being clinically established alternatives to traditional braces. Our dentists are fully trained and qualified to administer the Invisalign process and they work hard to create an environment that is exceptionally comfortable and welcoming for all kinds of patients.
Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces
The biggest difference between Invisalign braces and traditional options is obviously related to their visibility. Metal braces can be bulky and all too conspicuous, while Invisalign is virtually unnoticeable. However, there are many more advantages that Invisalign braces have over metal versions.
For one thing, because patients can remove their aligners whenever they eat or drink; there is no need to restrict any types of foods for fear of damaging or breaking metal brackets and wires. Patients should, of course, pay attention to their Invisalign braces to ensure that no food particles are trapped against their teeth, but standard high-quality dental hygiene should be sufficient.
Once patients have completed the treatment period for their current aligners, they simply return to our office to switch to a new one. This process generally repeats every two to five weeks and visits are usually quick. On the other hand, when standard metal or plastic braces are tightened, patients agree that it isn’t the most pleasant of experiences.
Summary: Advantages of Invisalign Over Traditional Braces:
- Limited or no food restrictions.
- Patients can feel confident with nearly invisible aligners.
- Invisalign involves very little discomfort.
- Treatment periods tend to be shorter than metal braces, which generally require between 18-36 months,
