Conventional orthodontia, such as metal bracket-and-wire braces, is a common way to realign the teeth within the smile. It can move teeth into proper alignment within the dental arch, eliminates spaces between the teeth, and allow patients to alleviate poor bite alignment. However, many individuals do not want to ask about orthodontic treatment because of the metal appliances used to achieve results. Instead, Valley Village, California, area patients can ask Dr. Darien Ephram of Laurel Canyon Dental about a clear aligner alternative known as Invisalign. This treatment uses trays worn over the teeth to gently move the teeth into their proper alignment in a more discreet manner.
With the Invisalign system, patients start with a consultation appointment with Dr. Darien Ephram to first determine if they are an appropriate candidate for this particular treatment option. With our team at Laurel Canyon Dental, you can then have digital impressions taken of your current smile. These impressions will be integrated into the Invisalign software to create a treatment plan that can help in achieving a straighter dental arch. Patients will receive a series of trays to be worn in order for at least two weeks at a time before progressing further, slowly repositioning the teeth in the smile without metal appliances and brackets!
Patients considering realigning the smile may want to ask Dr. Darien Ephram of Laurel Canyon Dental about the advantages of Invisalign treatment when compared to more conventional orthodontia. Some of the benefits include the following:
At the end of Invisalign treatment, patients will enjoy a beautiful smile without ever having had metal brackets and wires!
