If orthodontics is in your future, either for yourself or your teenager, you likely have a lot of questions and concerns. The cost, the length of time you’ll need to wear them, how often you’ll have to visit the dentist, worries about whether or not they will hurt, and the list goes on.
Many patients in Los Angeles are turning to Invisalign instead of using a traditional orthodontic approach. Traditional braces use metal brackets and sharp wires, and require monthly visits to the orthodontist. Invisalign uses clear alignment trays with a treatment plan that is predetermined, reducing those checkup visits. Not to mention the Invisalign trays are clear, ensuring your confidence doesn’t suffer while you’re straightening your smile. Other advantages include being able to remove the trays to eat, to brush, or for important events.
If you’ve decided that Invisalign is right for you, you simply need to find a provider who not only has the expertise to straighten your smile, but one who cares about the health of your entire mouth. Dr. Don Mungcal is a preferred Invisalign provider in the Los Angeles area. With years of experience helping patients address oral health and cosmetic issues, he has the knowledge and the skill you need to ensure you get the smile you want.
During your first meeting with Dr. Mungcal, he will talk with you about your perceived flaws and your desired results. He will also examine your mouth. Patients of Dr. Mungcal know that he is extremely thorough and that preventative care is as important as restorative and cosmetic care. If Dr. Mungcal feels that Invisalign will give you the results you want, x-rays and impressions will be taken to create the alignment trays.
Once your trays are ready, you will begin with the first tray. Typically, each tray is worn for two weeks before moving to the next tray in the series. Because the treatment path is set for you and because you don’t have braces with wires that need to be tightened, you will only need to return to the office occasionally to ensure that your treatment is on target. Throughout the process, Dr. Mungcal will monitor your progress as well as the health of your mouth leaving you with a happy and healthy smile.
