Crooked teeth can easily ruin an otherwise perfect appearance. Yet, few people would call bulky, metal braces a cosmetic treatment. Downtown Dental is proud to offer Invisalign, the beautiful way to achieve a beautiful smile. Dr. Don Mungcal has successfully treated countless patients in the L.A. area, earning the prestigious status of Invisalign Premier Preferred Provider.
Invisalign is a modern solution to orthodontics, born of innovative research and sophisticated technology. Despite the complexity of technology behind Invisalign, the procedure is remarkably simple for the patient.
Dr. Mungcal will begin with a comprehensive examination, impressions, and digital x-rays. If he determines that you could be a good candidate, he will send these records to Invisalign. Exclusive ClinCheck software is used to plan incremental tooth movements, resulting in optimal alignment.
Every stage of the process, including the result, is depicted in computer-generated images taking the guesswork out of orthodontics. Dr. Mungcal can make adjustments to the plan as needed. When you and the doctor are happy with the projected treatment, your aligners are ordered.
A series of aligners is created in a precision computer directed manufacturing process. You will be instructed to wear each tray for two weeks, then move to the next one in the series. The number of trays, and overall length of treatment, will vary depending on the degree of misalignment.
Invisalign treatment will have minimal impact on your life. Because they are removed during meals, you can eat anything you want. Oral hygiene is a snap – just maintain your normal routine with the simple addition of cleaning the aligner before you replace it. It is important to wear your aligner for at least 22-23 hours every day, or your progress will be slowed. Since there are no wires to adjust, there are no adjustment appointments. You only need to visit our office every six weeks for a check-up, so Dr. Mungcal can ensure that you are progressing according to schedule. When treatment is complete, you will have a beautifully straight smile, which you will be proud to show off!
