Invisalign Process LA
Invisalign treatment is a state-of-the-art removable clear braces that are invisible, they are called aligners . Dr. Nikaeen will first do a smile assessment and evaluate if you are a good candidate for Invisalign or suggest an alternative option. When you begin treatment, photos, digital x-rays and full measurement of your teeth will be taken; Dr. Nikaeen will use this information to prepare a detailed orthodontic treatment plan for you and submits this to the Invisalign company. Dr. Atoosa guides the Invisalign manufacturer into producing a virtual 3-D image of your projected smile, this is called a “ClinCheck”. Once Dr. Nikaeen is satisfied with the movement of your teeth, she will approve the ClinCheck, and the production of your aligners begin!
The typical Invisalign treatment will consist of a series of aligner trays, which will be provided to you by Dr. Nikaeen throughout your treatment. Each tray will be changed out every 10-14 days or every 1.5 to 2 weeks, and each will be custom-designed to fit and move your teeth into their proper positions over time. Once you have reached your final position, you will be fitted for a retainer, to hold your teeth in place and the process is done!
The Invisalign process is popular among adults, as well as teenagers, since the aligners transparency makes them far more difficult to detect than traditional wire or bracket braces. This way, adults can straighten their teeth without any of their peers or even family members knowing about it. Furthermore, as the aligner is removable there are no restrictions on food that can be consumed as there are with conventional braces, and also makes brushing and flossing a lot easier.
