Advantages of Invisalign
With the ability to straighten your teeth without braces, Invisalign has become a very popular treatment among many patients, who want to transform their smiles as effortlessly and comfortably as possible. The treatment option comes with a wide variety of appealing advantages when compared to traditional braces, including:
- - Straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. In the past, the only way to straighten your teeth was with traditional, metal braces, which are very visible to the eye. Invisalign removes the metal component and straightens your teeth with nothing but clear, plastic and virtually invisible aligners.
- - No food restrictions. With traditional braces, certain foods can damage the brackets and wires, so you’re not allowed to eat them throughout treatment. With Invisalign, you remove your trays to eat, so there are no restrictions on what you can consume.
- - Enhanced comfort. As Northridge.Dental is one of the top providers of Invisalign Northridge has to offer, patients regularly marvel at how comfortable it is to straighten their teeth with the Invisalign system. Because the trays are custom-made, they fit your anatomy perfectly and don’t irritate the soft tissues of your mouth.
Is Invisalign right for you?
Thanks to the incredible benefits offered by Invisalign, many of our patients want to know if they are candidates for the treatment. And the good news is that as long as your dental problems are not exceptionally severe, Invisalign can be an ideal way to straighten your teeth. For example, if you have gaps in between your teeth, crooked teeth, crowded teeth and issues with your bite, Invisalign should be able to address those issues. The ultimate goal of all our Woodland Hills & Northridge dental staff is to fix any imperfections in your smile & help maintain good oral health. We invite you to experience this with some of the best Invisalign Northridge & Woodland Hills have to offer.
Braces vs Invisalign: Which Works Best?
Traditional metal braces and Invisalign both straighten teeth, close gaps, and can resolve issues such as overbite and underbite. Like any orthodontic treatment plan, a comprehensive assessment of your teeth and gums allows us to craft a customized treatment plan that will produce the results you want. Many patients are interested in Invisalign aligners as they are virtually invisible. While most alignment problems can be resolved with Invisalign aligners, there are some more serious orthodontic problems that can only be resolved with traditional metal braces.
Metal braces are a very effective way to straighten teeth. The metal brackets, wires, and rubber bands are now available in colors that blend with your teeth, making them less obvious than they were in the past. The brackets are also available in fashion colors for the younger generation, or for the young-at-heart.
Treating Serious Orthodontic Problems with Braces
Braces may be the appropriate treatment for patients with dental issues that are more difficult to resolve. Complex dental issues such as extreme underbites, overbites, large gaps, and tooth crowding may require the long-term support and structure of braces to create a smile that's fully aligned. In most cases, metal braces close gaps and align teeth faster than Invisalign. You will need to avoid sticky, hard foods while your teeth are being straightened. Metal braces will require monthly appointments at our offices in Northridge.
Northridge Invisalign Dentist: Invisible Teeth Straightening
The biggest advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners are practically invisible, allowing you to correct your smile without the hassle, discomfort, and appearance of metal braces. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners don’t affect speech. Invisalign treatments are appropriate for minor misalignments, gaps, and bite problems. Many people prefer Invisalign as there are no restrictions on the food and drink you can consume. You will need to wear the aligners day and night, removing them to eat or drink, and brushing your teeth before replacing the aligners. They must be worn 22 hours a day.
Your Smile is an Investment in You.
At the end of the day, the right treatment will be based upon your individual alignment problems.

Is Invisalign More Expensive Than Braces?
The cost of Invisalign aligners is comparable to the cost of metal braces. An in-office consultation can determine which treatment will produce the best results, and how long you will need to wear your custom Invisalign aligners. Our dentist can advise you how long your treatment plan will be and how complex your case. Our helpful administrative staff will help you find out if your dental insurance covers any of the cost.
Investing in Your Smile
When considering your options for orthodontic treatment, remember that your smile is an investment. The right procedure will help you have a perfectly aligned smile in the years ahead. Whether you are a candidate for Invisalign or metal braces are needed, we offer financing options so you can get the treatment you need now.
Invisalign: Easy to Manage Teeth Straightening
It is necessary to keep your Invisalign trays in for at least 22 hours every day. If you don’t wear them consistently, it will take longer than planned to create the perfectly aligned teeth and beautiful smile you want. When your custom aligners are removed, you will be required to clean them and brush your teeth to prevent tooth staining. Always follow our dentist’s directions to keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout treatment. With proper daily care and regular dentist office visits, Invisalign efficiency rates are high. You can see long-term results, often within just a few short months.
