Invisalign

Most people would like to have the appearance, oral health, and social benefits of straight teeth. However, a smile full of visible brackets and wires just doesn’t make sense with adult lifestyles. Invisalign treatment from Dr. Anoosheh Shahkarami is changing how Tarzana women and men feel about orthodontics.

Invisalign basics

Invisalign treatment begins with three dimensional images of your mouth. Robust software transforms that data into a series of computer-generated plastic aligners. You wear each set for about two weeks, then progress to the next set, as Invisalign gently repositions teeth without visible hardware.

Once, Invisalign was considered a cosmetic treatment. The system has evolved into a solution for most misalignment problems, including some complex bite issues. Each treatment plan is unique, but a typical treatment plan takes about 12 months with good compliance – wearing aligners 20 to 22 hours each day.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Look great while you straighten. Aligners are transparent – most people won’t even realize you are wearing them.
  • Easy to adapt. It doesn’t take long to adjust to speaking and drinking water with aligners in place.
  • See incremental improvement. Since your smile is not covered up, you see changes as they occur.
  • Eat normally! Aligners are removable, so you don’t have to alter your diet.
  • No-fuss care. Our hygiene team shows you how to keep aligners fresh and clear with a few simple steps.
  • Easy on teeth. Because you take aligners out to brush and floss thoroughly, there is less chance of tooth decay or gum disease during treatment. Plus, there is no risk of enamel damage from cemented hardware.
  • Surprise benefit – Aligners must come out for eating or drinking anything but plain water. Some patients report reduced consumption of snacks, soda, and caffeine, which may result in weight loss.
Straight teeth contribute to oral health and overall wellness, and boost self-confidence. Schedule a consultation at our Tarzana office to find out if you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign – (818) 210-3885.
