Invisalign Is the Easy and Painless Way to Straighten Your Teeth

It used to be that kids dreaded being teased for having to wear traditional orthodontic braces.

The wires were uncomfortable and sometimes painful, they often irritated the tongue, and caused speech impediments. It was very difficult to eat the foods they wanted and still keep their teeth clean, creating a constant battle with gum inflammation.

Invisalign invisible orthodontic trays have done away with all that, for children and the increasing number of adults who want to straighten crooked smiles. The dentists and staff at Wilshire Smile Studio are Invisalign specialists who can guide you through a process that takes six months to two years, compared with the two or three years for many cases in which metal braces are used.

Especially complicated orthodontic cases may not be suitable for Invisalign treatment, so an initial examination by our dentist is necessary. However, most patients are eager to start the straightening process ASAP. Once you agree to go ahead, we will use a scanner to create an image of your mouth. Based on this, we will provide you with your initial personalized set of transparent trays (also known as aligners) for the upper and lower arches.

You need to wear them except when you eat, when they are easy to take out and put back on. There are no dietary restrictions, since you don’t have to worry about food sticking to braces. Most people won’t even know you have them unless you say something and brushing and flossing is done normally, minimizing the chances of periodontal disease (when gums become infected with bacteria due to inadequate cleaning).

Every six to eight weeks you return to our office for a checkup, to be sure expected progress is being made and have another set of aligners made (but there are no emergency visits because of broken wires or the brackets on the teeth). Some dental practices try to make this more convenient by having you manage the process without so many visits, but this can lead to serious problems.

Parents will appreciate knowing that an indicator dot can be seen by the dentist that shows whether their children are actually wearing them as much as they are supposed to.

It’s no wonder that six million people are happy with their Invisalign smiles.
