At Aesthetic Orthodontics, our team offers patients the ability to improve their smiles and correct embarrassing misalignment. People often seek an alternative to traditional braces because they worry metal brackets and wires may negatively affect their appearance. Fortunately, your Beverly Hills orthodontist, Dr. David Alpan, provides innovative methods of restoring your smile to optimal beauty and function.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign provides patients with a practically invisible technique for fixing crooked teeth or closing unsightly gaps between teeth. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually and gently reposition your teeth. Simply wear the aligners daily for the amount of time recommended by Dr. Alpan, typically between 20 and 22 hours. The entire treatment time normally falls between 12 and 18 months.
Advantages of Invisalign
Patients with Invisalign don’t need to alter or change their diets. Since the aligners can be removed before meals, nothing can damage or become stuck in them. Removable aligners also make brushing and flossing your teeth easier, improving your oral hygiene and helping prevent teeth stains. The aligners are custom-made for comfort and accuracy, patients rarely report the gum and cheek irritation often experienced with metal braces. Finally, the Invisalign process requires fewer office visits. On average, patients only need to see their Beverly Hills orthodontist once every six weeks, saving both time and money.
Alternatives to Invisalign
In addition to Invisalign, Dr. Alpan provides other procedures that correct smiles while remaining virtually hidden. The Damon system uses self-ligating braces that are smaller and less noticeable. Our Incognito procedure involves applying your braces to the back of the teeth instead of the front.
