For our adult and esthetically conscience patients, we also provide Invisalign™ treatment as an alternative to metal brackets in order for them to benefit from orthodontic treatment in the most esthetically possible way
What is it?
These transparent aligner systems use a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign can be used in a limited number of cases. Book a consultation today to see if Invisalign is for you!
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Shojaei has prescribed. You'll visit Dr. Shojaei about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 6-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment will vary from case to case.
Invisalign™ Preferred Provider
