Invisalign Doctors Los Angeles
INVISALIGN SPECIALISTS IN LOS ANGELES
Wilshire Smile Studio has Invisalign specialists who can give you that healthy, gleaming Hollywood Smile at an affordable price. Orthodontic treatment (the technical name for straightening teeth) was once viewed as a requirement for teenagers to endure that was uncomfortable and embarrassing. Now, even adults (74% of whom have somewhat crooked teeth) realize the value of a great smile and 92% who have had any type of orthodontic therapy recommend it because of the resulting improved self-confidence in their career and personal lives.
Fortunately, it’s easier than ever with Invisalign’s technology, without the embarrassing contraption, uncomfortable tightening of wires, dietary restrictions, and complicated requirements for cleaning teeth. After our experts make a 3-D image of your teeth, they will provide you with an initial set of customized aligners (like transparent mouth guards) to put over them. Most people won’t even know you are wearing “invisible braces,” which you will change these every two weeks, gently nudging the teeth towards your optimum smile. You will return to the office every 6 to 8 weeks for a check-up by our doctors and to have the next set of aligners made, with the whole process typically taking just 9 to 15 months (traditional braces require 12 to 36 months).

Straightened teeth and a proper bite are important not only for self-confidence and to be able to flash a lovely smile at work, but can make a big difference in oral and personal health. Serious periodontal disease (infection of the gums) can start when teeth are hard to clean, whether due to genetics, finger-sucking as a child, or accidents, and a sticky film of bacterial builds up and begins to pull away the gums from the teeth and can ultimately cause loss of teeth and even the need for jaw bone grafts.
Few people grow up understanding how important it is to properly floss and brush to prevent tooth decay and gum infection, even for those without orthodontic challenges, nor do many get regular professional cleaning by a highly-trained dental hygienist. Gum disease also raises the risk of everything from heart disease and osteoporosis to pneumonia and pregnancy difficulties. The Wilshire Smile Studio team will teach you the best way to keep your new smile healthy.
