Have you ever wanted a straighter smile? Are your teeth gapped or crowded and difficult to brush or floss? Does your bite, or the way your teeth fit together, feel uncomfortable or cause your jaw to feel tired or sore? Do you ever look in the mirror and simply wish that your smile was more attractive? Our Hawthorne Invisalign dentist can help.
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses a series of comfortable, removable and nearly invisible aligners that straighten your teeth without metal brackets or wires. We use 3-dimensional computer imaging technology to map out your treatment plan, tweak your results and even give you a preview of your smile before you have even started your treatment. Our expert in Invisalign in Hawthorne can use Invisalign to treat many different mild, moderate and some more severe alignment issues in teens and adults so that you can have the smile you deserve.
One of the biggest benefits of Invisalign is its unobtrusive appearance. Because each aligner is made of clear thermoplastic, no one needs to know you are using it. You can also keep indulging in your favorite treats since the removable aligners can be taken out before you eat or drink. The aligners should be worn about 20 to 22 hours a day and only removed during meals or dental hygiene tasks.
At your initial appointment, our Hawthorne Invisalign dentist will create your treatment plan. Once your aligners have been created using the 3-D images that we made of your teeth, you will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. As you wear the aligners, your teeth will gradually shift. The next set of aligners will move them a bit more towards the desired final position. You will need to visit our expert in Invisalign in Hawthorne about every eight weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as desired.
Depending on your unique dental needs and personal goals, you can have your new smile in just about a year. Contact our office today to learn more about Invisalign or other treatments or to schedule your appointment with our cosmetic dentist in Hawthorne, an Invisalign Preferred Provider.
