Invisalign Braces in Los Angeles CA Area

In Los Angeles, CA, patients seeking a dental practice that offers a variety of services under one roof are encouraged to visit Downtown Dental. Dr. Don Mungcal and his team are committed to the health, function, and beauty of patients’ smiles. Whether you are seeking general dentistry or cosmetic work, we can help! One of our highly desired treatments is Invisalign, an alternative to traditional braces. There are many benefits to Invisalign over conventional orthodontics for our patients to consider.

Invisalign explained

Many patients are interested in finding out how Invisalign works. Instead of using brackets and wires as traditional braces require, Invisalign uses aligner trays. Trays are made of clear plastic and are worn day and night to reposition the teeth. An entire series of trays is made from start to finish, and each tray is worn for two weeks at a time before progressing to the next aligner. The trays are removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. When patients comply with their treatment, they can completely change their smile, usually within a year or less, depending on the severity of their misalignment. Mild to moderate misalignment can be addressed with this method, as well as poor bite alignment.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Many patients in the area of Los Angeles, CA consider Invisalign because of its many benefits.

  • Patients who consider Invisalign are often interested in a discreet treatment. The trays are clear and hard to distinguish from the natural teeth, making them highly desirable for both teenagers and adults.
  • Invisalign uses amazing technology to create the trays from digitized impressions. The entire series is created from the start, so patients do not have to return to the dental office every two weeks to obtain their new trays.
  • Patients find out how easy it is to use Invisalign, as well as how simple it can be to take care of them. By being able to remove the trays for brushing and flossing, many patients experience better oral health throughout the process, as they do not have to work around brackets and wires that are not removable.
  • Invisalign provides fast results. Patients with mild to moderate misalignment can achieve their new look within six to twelve months in most situations with proper compliance.
  • Patients find Invisalign trays to be incredibly comfortable. They are made of smooth plastic and fit precisely over the teeth without adding unwanted bulk. The smooth plastic is easier on the surrounding soft tissues, while many patients with metal brackets and wires experience poking and soreness around their brackets.
  • Invisalign is an affordable option for many of our patients, often comparable in cost to traditional braces.
  • Patients love the fact that they can continue to visit their primary dentist for their orthodontic treatment instead of starting over with another professional they do not already know and trust. Patients only come in about every six weeks throughout treatment to monitor their progress, but do not have to undergo adjustments of brackets and wires as patients do with an orthodontist.
  • Our practice understands that some dental work can be costly for a family’s budget. We offer convenient financing plans for patients who need to space out payments to make their treatments more affordable. We work with individuals and their dental insurance companies to get them the best rate and to help them better understand the coverage they have with their insurance plan. We want patients to have the opportunity to improve their smiles without being hindered by cost.

Success Stories

I actually owe a debt to Downtown Dental because they caught my oral cancer. I went to them because I had a bump on my tongue and thankfully they ordered a biopsy immediately (same day). The staff has been wonderful to me (even sending me a get well card during my cancer treatment). They do great work - the crowns are made in the office to save you time - and they are very upfront on pricing. You know exactly what you will pay. They are also very flexible on appointments. And they validate parking! They also have taken COVID precautions very seriously. Very professional and well-organized. Highly recommend them.
The staff here on its own deserves the five stars. Everyone is so friendly and take there time to get to know you as a patient. There very easy to work with on what’s best for you in the long run with insurance and dental care. On top of them making you feel comfortable, you can tell that they actually care about you and your dental health. The parking is also super easy and they validate so you don’t have to pay. I’d highly recommend coming here!
I am so glad I came to Downtown Dental. From the moment I walked into the office I was met with a smile and a warm welcome. During my first visit, a dental plan was made for me and they got to work right away. I have never experienced such attention to detail and such excellent customer service at a dental office. During my root canal procedure and fillings everyone was extremely helpful and constantly making sure I was comfortable. Since then, I am encouraging everyone to check out Downtown Dental, they really are amazing.

Oral Cancer Screening Video
Every patient at Downtown Dental undergoes a thorough check for oral cancer and other dental health issues. This video shows how it’s done. Transcript
Here at downtown Dental, we take oral health and cancer screenings very serious. This month is November and it's the month of oral health cancer awareness and screenings. Every patient we examined thoroughly, we look and we check their lips, tongue and we check for any abnormalities or bumps. At home you should also check to make sure that everything looks okayLeava is going to demonstrate what in oral health cancer screening is and what we examine. So, we first start off by checking all the lips. We make sure that the lips look healthy and that we palpate them, which is touching them and making sure that there's nothing anormal. Then we go into the mucosa and check the cheeks. We're going to look and check the hard palate as well as the soft palate. This might tickle a little. We checked the posterior of the tongue. Do you, Viola, go ahead and say, aaaaaa. We check the lateral sides of the tongue. Go ahead and sit your tongue showed up great. And we also check the floor of the mouth. Get the tongue to the roof of your mouth. Good all clear. Oral cancer is especially important to check the patients who are smokers, alcohol drinkers and we thank you for watching the video.
