INVISALIGN® (INVISIBLE BRACES)
You want to straighten your teeth without the use of traditional braces, and you want the most qualified Invisalign orthodontist to care for your orthodontic needs. Congratulations, you are definitely in the right place. Dr. Atoosa Nikaeen has been offering patients in the Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica areas Invisalign treatments since Align Technology first pioneered invisible orthodontics and introduced the technology in 1999. She has sharpened her expertise of the Invisalign process through many years of experience. For several years, Dr. Nikaeen has been a Premier Provider of Invisalign, and in 2013 she became an Elite provider of this highly advanced invisible braces technology.
WHAT IS INVISALIGN®?
This revolutionary orthodontic treatment uses clear plastic aligner trays that fit over your teeth. Each set of trays is customized to move your teeth gradually into position. Over time, your teeth will align and treatment will commence, usually in 12-24 months or you can select to accelerate your treatment and complete the Invisalign treatment in half of the standard treatment months. Invisalign aligners offer more comfort and can be taken out at will, which many Santa Monica, Los Angeles, and Beverly Hills, Invisalign patients love.
HOW INVISALIGN WORKS
As your Invisalign Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica doctor, Dr. Nikeen will make a 3-D rendering of your smile to assist in the manufacture of your custom aligners. Every week to two weeks you will switch out your aligners for a new pair. Each time your aligners are switched, your smile is being gradually moved to align with your treatment plan. Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Los Angeles Invisalign patients appreciate that the aligners are nearly invisible and can be taken out to brush their teeth and eat. They can also be taken out for other occasions, like when taking selfies, although, the aligners should be worn 22 hours per day for maximum effect.
But how does Invisalign work to correct your dental problems? The transparent Invisalign aligners are made with the help of digital technology to fit snugly around your teeth with the greatest possible precision. By gently pressing your teeth, the trays together with Dr. Atoosa Nikaeen’s treatment plan, align them, creating a straight and charming smile, while eliminating your overbite, gap or crowded teeth problems. However, even the best Invisalign in Santa Monica is unable to correct each and every dental problem you might have, though working wonders in teeth and bite correction is Dr. Nikaeen’s specialty.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING INVISALIGN TREATMENT
CAN INVISALIGN CORRECT MY DENTAL ISSUES?
If your teeth are slightly out of line and there is little crowding or spacing, you may be a good candidate for Invisalign. Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Los Angeles patients that have severe crowding or spacing issues or where there is a serious overbite, underbite, or cross-bite, traditional braces may be a better fit.
BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN
Is Invisalign worth it? The true answer to this question can be given by our Invisalign patients in Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Los Angeles. They obviously appreciate the possibility to get their teeth aligned without worrying about how they would look while undergoing the treatment. Also, they feel no discomfort when eating, since there are no metal parts and wires in their mouths for food debris to clog up. All they have to do is to remove the aligners before eating, then brush and floss their teeth after eating and put the trays back on.
So, is Invisalign worth it? Due to its unparalleled ease of use, our Invisalign Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Los Angeles patients agree that it is well worth the effort.
INVISALIGN BEFORE AND AFTER
As you are well aware, a picture is worth a thousand words. Photos, illustrating Invisalign before and after transformations, can give you the best idea of the problems that can be solved and the impressive results that can be achieved by wearing these high-end aligners. You may find visual evidence on our website, though displaying only the smallest part of our patients, who have already received their improved smiles and quality of life. However, you can find more Invisalign before and after pictures for example at this page on our site, since the technology continues to gain popularity.
HOW LONG DOES INVISALIGN TAKE TO ACHIEVE RESULTS?
This depends on what results you are inquiring about. If you mean “How long does Invisalign take to see the first effect?”, you may start enjoying and witnessing results as early as 2-3 months from when you first begin wearing the Invisalign aligners. However, the treatment varies from 6 to 24 months depending on the complexity of dental issues you have. On average, it takes about a year for adults to get the desired results. Also, you should keep in mind that upon the completion of your course you will be recommended to wear an Invisalign retainer to prevent your teeth from moving back into the wrong position. But you shouldn’t be worried, since Invisalign retainers are invisible and easy-to-use, too.
