What is Invisalign?

Invisalign are clear, removable and custom-made series of aligners that you use to straighten your teeth without anyone noticing. These sets of aligners are made of smooth and virtually invisible medical grade plastic trays that you wear over your teeth to straighten them. They are specifically crafted to fit your teeth so as to gradually and gently move your teeth into the desired place.

Invisalign are the modern alternative to noticeable traditional metal braces since they provide you with a virtually invisible method to straighten your teeth.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign dental treatment involves a series of three simple steps. The initial step involves our Torrance board certified orthodontist devising an initial treatment plan for you. Dr. Rita Y. Chuang, a ABO board certified orthodontist, and her staff will take X-ray scans, photos and 3D scans of your teeth, create a treatment plan, which is then sent to Invisalign lab for a recreation of a 3-D image of your teeth.

These 3-D images allow the orthodontist to map out an accurate treatment, including the precise movements of your teeth, to view your jaw from different angles, and to tell you how your face will look like after the treatment.

Once a personalized treatment plan is mapped out, a custom-made set of aligners is created specifically for you. Our orthodontist will provide you with these smooth and comfortable aligners to wear throughout the day expect when you eat, drink or brush and floss your teeth. These clear aligners work by gradually moving your teeth to the required position without anyone noticing you’re straightening your teeth.

After every 4-6 weeks, you’ll be required to come back for a new set of aligners in order to advance your next stage of treatment. In addition, you’ll get occasional checkups to monitor your progress. At every stage of your treatment, you’ll be able to see how close you are to achieving the smile you deserve.

A typical Invisalign treatment will require 20-29 sets of aligners but the treatment varies with each individual.
