Invisalign in Gardena, CA
If you want to do something to upgrade your smile, but you don’t think braces are right for you, consider looking into Invisalign. At Gardena Orthodontics, we can fit you for your custom Invisalign clear braces so you can straighten your teeth without having to deal with wires.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces. Instead of metal brackets and wires being affixed to each individual tooth, you’re provided with a series of clear trays crafted from quality plastic that fit over an entire row of teeth. Each set of trays is created just for you, using your own dental impressions as the blueprint. Invisalign gently realigns crooked teeth, giving you a beautiful smile without ever being noticed.
Why Should I Choose Invisalign?
Often, adults who want to fix their crooked teeth are self-conscious about wearing a mouthful of metal braces. Invisalign is an easy solution to this problem, providing benefits such as:
- Easy to care for: instead of having to use special brushes and work around a bunch of wires, Invisalign can just pop right off your teeth. Just take them off whenever you need to brush and floss your teeth.
- Low maintenance: You don’t need to worry about avoiding sticky or messy foods. Invisalign allows you to eat or drink as you normally would.
- No special requirements: When you wear braces and play sports, you have to wear a mouth guard to protect your braces and your mouth from getting damaged. With Invisalign, you can play sports without worry.
- Practically invisible: No one can even tell you’re wearing them!
How Are Invisalign Clear Braces Created?
Invisalign braces are made according to your specific needs. Dr. Hamid Barkhordar will meet with you at your initial appointment to go over your questions and concerns, as well as take a record of your personal health history.
We will also perform an exam, take X-rays and take meticulous impressions of your teeth to help us craft the most accurate trays. The impressions are used to make your Invisalign trays from state-of-the-art, quality materials.
Once your trays are ready, we’ll invite you back to get them custom-fitted to your teeth. Every few weeks, we will bring you back in to check the progress and have you fitted for your next set of trays. When your treatment is complete, we will fit you with a personalized retainer to help ensure your smile stays beautifully straight.
