Invisalign® for Adults
At Santa Monica Dental Arts, Dr. Koshki’s goal is to help you take pride in your smile. For patients who exhibit crooked teeth, this may mean orthodontic correction, and with Invisalign®, you can enjoy a straighter smile without the need for orthodontic braces! Invisalign is a system of nearly-invisible acrylic aligners that can be removed for convenient eating and teeth brushing/flossing. Like braces, Invisalign can correct a variety of tooth alignment issues, including crowding, spacing, an overbite, an under bite, and more.
Many adult patients with crooked teeth are good candidates for Invisalign cosmetic braces. However, if your teeth are severely out of alignment, then you may require the more comprehensive results that only orthodontic braces can provide.
The first step to Invisalign treatment is taking careful measurements and impressions of your bite, including digital X-rays and high-definition photographs that will be sent to the Invisalign lab. Using the measurements and images, Invisalign technicians will generate a map of your treatment from beginning to end, including a 3D animation of your teeth’s path of movement. Then, they will create your series of aligners to guide your teeth through the prescribed movement as you progress through them.
Invisalign treatment often requires the same amount of time as traditional braces (between 18 and 24 months), though the process is significantly more comfortable. All you need to progress through treatment is to change your current aligners for the next in the series every couple of weeks. With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners before eating and drinking, and before brushing and flossing your teeth, making it easier to continue good hygiene throughout your treatment.
