Is Invisalign a Good Teeth Straightening Option for Me?

You might not be satisfied with your imperfect smile, but you definitely don’t like the thought of filling your mouth with traditional metal braces, either. Fortunately, when it comes to straightening your teeth, you have a choice. Here at Westlake Smile Studio in Westlake Village, California, Dr. Mimi Theerathada offers the Invisalign® clear aligning system so you can get a more perfect smile without the inconvenience of metal braces.

If you have gapped, crooked, or crowded teeth, Invisalign may be a good teeth straightening option for you. This innovative orthodontic technology corrects a variety of common dental problems using clear, plastic aligners instead of metal brackets and wires. Could it be an ideal solution for you?

Invisalign straightens teeth up to 50% faster than traditional braces

Some people choose Invisalign for the convenience of not having to undergo the painful process of getting metal brackets and wires affixed to their teeth for the duration of the orthodontic treatment. Others choose the Invisalign system for its discreet appearance. And many teens and adults delight in the fact that Invisalign clear aligners can potentially straighten your teeth up to 50% faster than traditional braces.

Everyone is different, so Dr. Mimi recommends a custom Invisalign treatment plan that’s right for you — one that delivers the maximum benefits in the least amount of time. Most Invisalign treatments take just 12-18 months, whereas metal braces can take 1-3 years, with an average of 24 months to get the desired outcome. If you don’t have time to waste, and you’d like the many other benefits that come with the Invisalign system, this may be the perfect solution.

Think your teeth are too crooked or too misaligned for the Invisalign system? Think again. Invisalign clear aligners use their patented SmartTrack material to move your teeth as precisely as necessary, while still keeping your mouth comfortable during the process.

When you wear your custom aligners for 20-22 hours each day, as is recommended, you can improve any of these problems in less time and with less discomfort than you may have thought possible. You wear a new set of clear aligners every 1-2 weeks, as Dr. Mimi prescribes, and gradually your teeth shift into place according to your unique plan.
