Invisalign in Marina Del Rey
Making the decision to straighten your teeth is much easier when you know that Invisalign® treatment lets you live your life the way you want to. With Invisalign aligners, you don't need to worry about the gum and mouth irritation other teeth-straightening methods can cause.
Invisalign aligner trays are not only smooth and comfortable to wear, but they're also removable. That means you can continue doing all the things you normally would, from brushing and flossing, to eating whatever you like. With other devices, brushing and flossing properly can often take up to 30 minutes! Special occasion coming up? No problem — just take your aligners out for that time and pop them back in when you're ready. Of course, even when you're wearing them, most people won't even know you're going through treatment, because they are virtually invisible! Invisalign treatment is also ideal for your busy schedule, with fewer doctor visits required (approximately every six weeks).
How does Invisalign Treatment Work?
Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time. When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor.
What is the process like?
- You and Dr. Yeo will discuss your needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.
- We will take impressions and map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile.
- Your custom-made aligners will be made of our proprietary SmartTrack® material. They're virtually invisible, so most people won't even notice you're wearing them during your teeth straightening.Wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results, taking them out to eat and to brush and floss.
- As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. We may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every week and schedule check-ups every six weeks or so. At every stage you’ll be able to see your progress and imagine how far your new smile will take you.
