Braces have long dominated the field of orthodontics, but thanks to advances and developments you now have another option. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that can give you the straight smile that you have always wanted. Dr. Lozada, Los Angeles Invisalign dentist, can help you decide if Invisalign is right for you.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, comfortable aligners that fit over your teeth like mouthguards. They are nearly invisible when you have them in, so no one can tell you are wearing them. You can smile confidently throughout your experience. At your consultation, Dr. Lozada, expert in Invisalign in Los Angeles, will ensure that this revolutionary treatment is the right choice for your smile, and then we will use the latest 3D imaging programs to create your treatment plan and your aligners.

Along with the obvious cosmetic benefits of Invisalign, you can expect to enjoy other benefits, as well. The aligners are removable, so you can take them out before meals. This means you can keep eating your favorite foods without worrying about damaging your aligners. The smooth plastic is comfortable and will not irritate your mouth, and you can change the aligners yourself, which means less time getting adjustments. Dr. Lozada, Los Angeles Invisalign dentist, can even give you a preview of your new smile right at the start of treatment.
After Dr. Lozada designs your treatment plan, you will receive your first set of aligners. You will need to wear these aligners at all times except when you are eating, drinking anything but water, brushing, or flossing for a minimum of 20 to 22 hours a day. After two weeks, you will change to the next set of aligners. Little by little, your teeth will move a little closer to their final position.
You will need to visit Dr. Lozada, expert in Invisalign in Los Angeles, about every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as expected. Most patients will be in treatment from 12 to 18 months, but this can vary based on the extent of your orthodontic needs and your specific concerns and goals.
