Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. In fact, nearly one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 18. However, if traditional braces aren’t right for you, Kaveh Kanani, DDS, has a better solution at Around the Corner Dental Health Spa in Tarzana, California. Dr. Kanani is a certified Invisalign® provider with nearly two decades of experience. Invisalign is an orthodontic system of clear aligners that can straighten your teeth as effectively as metal braces. For more information, call Around the Corner Dental Health Spa or book a visit online today.
Invisalign is an orthodontic system that uses clear aligners to gradually straighten your teeth over 6-18 months. Unlike conventional braces, which use metal wires and bulky brackets to straighten your teeth, clear aligners are practically invisible and mold to your teeth — when you smile, it’s hard to tell you’re wearing them.
Invisalign can give you a smile you’ve always wanted without the embarrassment of conventional braces. Some of the most valuable benefits of Invisalign include:
Invisalign aligners are clear and conform to your teeth, so they look as natural as your teeth.
Unlike braces, which can cut and irritate your inner cheeks, Invisalign aligners are as smooth and comfortable as your teeth.
Conventional braces take 18 months to three years to straighten your teeth, while Invisalign takes as little as 6-18 months.
The wires and brackets of braces make it difficult to brush your teeth properly. Since clear aligners are removable, you can take them out to brush and floss your teeth to preserve your oral hygiene.
Invisalign can treat a wide range of dental concerns, including:
Invisalign treats mild to moderate cases. As a certified Invisalign provider since 2002, Dr. Kanani works closely with orthodontists to handle more advanced cases, ensuring that his patients receive the best quality care possible.
The Invisalign process is entirely digital, so you’ll feel comfortable every step of the way. First, Dr. Kanani takes highly accurate photos and digital impressions of your mouth to design your personalized treatment plan in the Invisalign software. He then sends this information to the Invisalign lab, which fabricates your aligners.
Every two weeks, you receive a new set of aligners. It’s important that you wear Invisalign for at least 20-22 hours a day for the best results. What makes the Invisalign process unique is that Dr. Kanani can tweak or change your plan at any time in the Invisalign software, which means fewer trips to the dentist for you.
Invisalign can help you achieve a Hollywood smile on your own terms. To find out more, call Around the Corner Dental Health Spa or schedule an appointment online today.
