Dr. Nikaeen strives to provide the maximum comfort for each patient, and the patient’s appearance during treatment is often a large concern. Traditional metal braces are very visible and can cause acute embarrassment, especially for sensitive teenagers and even adults who believe they are too old to be a “metal mouth.” That is why invisible braces such as Invisalign and clear ceramic braces have become so popular among Dr. Nikaeen’s patients. These treatment options can provide smile correcting results that are just as, or sometimes even more, effective than traditional metal braces.
Invisalign works as a series of removable, clear plastic aligners that are custom-made for each patient. Over time, these aligners will gradually shift the teeth into their proper, straight position. The advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces are numerous. First, the aligners are clear and virtually undetectable, which removes any embarrassment over orthodontic treatment. Next, the aligners are removable and allow the patient to eat and drink as they please. Moreover, Invisalign utilizes computer imaging technology to allow the orthodontist to visualize what the final results will be from the first day.
Dr. Nikaeen is a leading provider of these alternative treatments in Los Angeles. Not only is Dr. Nikaeen Invisalign certified, a requirement for Invisalign providers, but our office is even recognized by the Invisalign brand as an “Elite Provider,” a distinction only awarded to orthodontists who have achieved an even more significant amount of experience with Invisalign treatments than Preferred or even Premier Preferred Providers. Dr. Nikaeen is one of the few Los Angeles orthodontists to have earned this distinction. She also has extensive experience with clear braces and can help each patient determine what the best solution is for them, as each case is unique.
Our office staff is dedicated to providing the best possible experience and care for every patient. We know your time is valuable, so we do all we can to ensure a minimum wait time, and strive to make each visit most enjoyable.

For adults who are looking to perfect their smile without the metal, lingual braces are the best choice. Lingual braces are
an invisible solution to correcting the teeth. The term “lingual” which means “on the side of the tongue,” indicates
that these braces will be placed on the non-visible side of your teeth, virtually undetectable! Although popular among
adults, in general, anyone older than 13 who is a candidate for traditional braces would also be a suitable candidate
for lingual braces.
Metal braces use a system of brackets and wires to move your teeth into the desired position.
The small metal brackets are glued to the front of the teeth. Small wires are shaped to the
ideal shape of your smile. Once threaded through the brackets, the wires strive to return to
their original shape. This process gradually moves your teeth into a perfect alignment.
