Feeling confident in your smile and having a healthy bite is crucial to your overall well-being.

But many people aren’t willing to use traditional methods like metal braces to correct misaligned teeth because they can take years to achieve results. Invisalign can provide you with faster, more comfortable treatment. 

These clear teeth aligners are one of the most popular methods for correcting crowded teeth. Invisalign trays are made from thermoplastic material and use pressure to move your teeth into their new positions. Invisible braces like Invisalign are easy to remove and create less discomfort no matter how long you may be required to wear them. An experienced Invisalign dentist of over 20 years, Dr. Ellie Farahmand can create your perfect smile by helping you achieve straight teeth.


Candidates for Invisalign

Clear aligners are one of the most effective dental treatments available today. Not only will a clear straightening tray correct crooked teeth, but it can resolve several other dental issues as well, such as:

Misaligned or crowded teeth
Gaps and spaces between teeth

During your consultation with Dr. Farahmand, she’ll determine whether you are a candidate for Invisalign. The best candidates for Invisalign are the ones who commit to following the recommendations for treatment. Although it is a faster process, you must be dedicated to wearing your trays and only removing them when you want something to eat or drink. For the best results, you will need to wear your trays for a minimum of 20 hours a day.

Advantages of Invisalign

Perhaps the most obvious benefit to patients in Santa Monica is that Invisalign trays are practically invisible. But there are numerous other advantages, including:

No food restrictions
No drink restrictions
Better ability to brush and floss your teeth
No monthly wire adjustments
Improved self-esteem

No metal wires or brackets mean there is less discomfort; fixed brace brackets cause mouth sores throughout the oral cavity. And clear aligners are ideal for adults seeking to improve their oral health while maintaining their professional appearance.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Specialized computer software is used to create your custom plan for moving your teeth and the treatment is divided into phases. Each phase is approximately two weeks and requires custom-made, clear trays that fit over your natural teeth. Dr. Farahmand may need to place plastic “buttons” that help the aligners guide the teeth into a new spot. These rubber bands are helpful when your teeth need to be rotated or moved above the gumline.  Your treatment plan includes multiple trays, but the number varies between patients. These aligners apply pressure to your teeth and slowly shift them into a new position. You’ll insert a new tray approximately every two weeks.
