Each year, millions of Americans opt to fix their teeth or bite alignment problems. However, many more continue to hide their smiles because they mistakenly believe that their only option for fixing their smile is the traditional, silver-toned braces. Today, many patients can choose between these metal braces and Invisalign aligners, a transparent, removable alternative to braces. Dr. Bobby Irani, cosmetic dentist in Woodland Hills, has helped hundreds of patients improve their smiles with Invisalign.
Invisalign aligners function much like metal braces in that they slowly guide the teeth into position. However, unlike metal braces, these aligners do not use wires and brackets. Instead, they use a series of transparent plastic trays that fit over the teeth. Every two to three weeks, Dr. Irani, Woodland Hills Invisalign provider, gives the patient a new set of aligners. Each set moves the teeth slightly closer to their final position.

Many patients prefer Invisalign aligners over metal braces because of their many advantages. Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable when worn because they are transparent. This allows patients to straighten their teeth without the metallic appearance that traditional braces have. In addition, patients appreciate the fact that the aligners are removable. They can remove the aligners to eat, and brush and floss their teeth. In addition, the Invisalign aligners are very efficient. Some patients only need to wear the aligners for as little as one year before their teeth are realigned.
The process for fitting a patient for Invisalign aligners is simple and painless. First, Dr. Irani, expert in Invisalign in Woodland Hills, will examine your teeth to determine if the Invisalign system is right for your needs. Then, he will take images of your teeth to send to a laboratory. The lab creates the aligners and sends the first set back to Dr. Irani. After Dr. Irani, Woodland Hills Invisalign provider, checks them for fit, you can begin wearing them.
