Invisalign clear aligners offer patients an excellent method for straightening their teeth, especially those patients who want to keep their treatment as discreet as possible. Invisalign aligners are created with flexible plastic that’s nearly invisible and customized to fit the patient’s unique dental situation, creating a perfect, comfortable fit and ideal results.

The Invisalign Process

When a patient visits our Van Nuys dental office for Invisalign treatment, we will take impressions and x-rays of your teeth to create a 3-D image. Dr. Bacquet will use the image to create a personalized treatment plan for you and show you exactly what your teeth will look like after completing treatment.
We will then have your custom clear aligners made based on your impressions. Finally, you will wear the aligners in sequence, changing them out according to a schedule provided by your dentist.

It’s imperative to wear your aligners according to the schedule and wear them every day for at least 22 hours. If you don’t, you won’t enjoy the best possible results, and your treatment may need to be prolonged. 

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign offers patients a variety of benefits, including removability. Since you can remove the Invisalign aligners, you can clean them quickly, and your oral hygiene routine will remain simple and convenient. You also won’t need to change your diet, which many patients greatly appreciate.

Additionally, the flexible plastic offers a comfortable feel, and the lack of wires means that you’ll spend less time in the dental office getting adjustments. Instead, you’ll simply change to your next set of aligners, as mentioned above. 

After treatment, you’ll also enjoy the benefits of straighter teeth, including a better bite, which may mean easier chewing and a more effective oral hygiene routine. In addition, crooked teeth are often more challenging to keep clean than straight teeth, so your Invisalign treatment may even prevent dental issues, like cavities, from occurring down the line.
